Key Lime Pie Popsicles
This post is sponsored by Vital Proteins. Thanks as always for your support!
Let me just tell you how weird of a word “popsicle” is. While making the graphic for this post, I kept changing fonts and colors until “popsicle” turned into one of those words that looks like gibberish…or some kind of Greek philosopher.
First of all, let’s applaud the fact that this is the first recipe in awhile that isn’t a nut butter. Secondly, I used my new birthday camera to shoot these photos. I’m still learning and I still prefer to send them to my phone to edit in VSCO, but next on my list is to watch some tutorials on Lightroom so that I can actually edit things on my computer. One downside is that my computer is right near a wall of windows, so if it’s very sunny out there’s a glare on half my screen, but I’ll figure out a solution.
Ok, let’s talk about these popsicles.
I’ve been craving some key lime pie lately, so when I was trying to come up with a recipe to use my Vital Proteins in, making it into popsicle form sounded perfect. Not only is it way simpler than the actual pie recipe I make, but it’s definitely healthier.
Instead of eggs, sweetened condensed milk, and cream, this simply uses Greek yogurt. Throwing in some collagen peptides helps to add a little extra protein as well. If you’re not familiar with different types of collagen, here is my more detailed post about the benefits and types that I use.
I added some sugar to balance out the tartness of the key limes and yogurt, but if you like things more tart, you can omit it. Taste your mixture as you go to figure out exactly how you like them!
Now please come over and help me finish 10 popsicles. 🙂
Key Lime Popsicles
makes 10 standard size popsicles
- 4 cups Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
- 1/2 cup key lime juice
- 1 Tbsp key lime zest
- 2 Tbsp cane sugar (or other sweetener of choice)
- 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
- 3 graham crackers, crushed
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until thoroughly mixed.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds, leaving a small amount of room at the top for crushed graham crackers.
- If your mold doesn’t have stick holders, place in freezer for about 15 min, then add sticks and freeze anywhere from 4 hours to overnight. If it does, you can add the sticks immediately and place in freezer.
- Run warm water over the bottom of the molds to loosen popsicles, then enjoy!
