After any workout, you need to refuel your body with the right amount of carbs and proteins. For an easy summer recovery snack try these protein recovery popsicles. Thanks to these were easy to find! 

Banana chocolate peanut butter: (sort of fudge-sicle-esque)
1 cup chocolate almond milk (unsweetened)
3 scoops of chocolate whey protein powder
two tablespoons chocolate peanut butter (or regular peanut butter + a tablespoon of cocoa)
one banana


Strawberry Banana Almond: (tastes remarkably like strawberry ice cream)
1 cup Vanilla almond milk (unsweetened)
1 cup strawberries
3 scoops vanilla protein powder
two tablespoons almond butter
one banana


1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 cup mango
1/2 banana
3 scoops protein powder (vanilla works best)

Put all ingredients in blender, blend. Pour into popsicle molds. Wait impatiently for them to freeze. Eat post workout.

They're around 125 calories a piece with the ingredients I used (depending on your protein powder choice, calories/fat/carbs would vary).
