Protein Popsicles

We’re finally warming up here, at least in Southern California, so now’s the time to pull out your frozen treats and cool drinks! Most of the time, though, your frozen treats may be things like Otterpops, which are little else than a mixture of corn-syrup and food coloring, or like Kool-Aid, which has ingredients that are impossible to pronounce, and also has food coloring. Sometimes your healthiest option is to make your own, and in this post, I have a recipe for Protein Popsicles! It’s exactly what it sounds like – popsicles with protein powder in them.

The beginning process does require heating in a saucepan in order to dissolve the sugar, but that is pretty much all the heat you’ll need. The rest is just as simple as adding ingredients, shaping, and cooling. And then comes the most important step, which is eating.

If you are looking to cut down on sugar, you could try substituting honey instead of the sugar, but it’s up to you.

Now for a little unrelated poem I wrote before the recipe (scroll down for recipe)d

A Poem by Michael Metzler JR.

.

Come buy our products!

They’re the best!

They’ll stand against your every test;

So come and buy them from our store.

.

The quality is there to see–

Soon, you’ll find no fakery.

So come and buy them from our store.

.

The warranty is so long and wide,

You cannot see its either side.

So come and buy that separately.

.

We aren’t liars–you can tell.

We don’t merely just want to sell.

But we need you quickly at our store.

.

See, we’re hoping, while you’re here,

You’ll buy other stuff without fear.

As long as you come quickly to our store.

.

“Advertise” is the thing we do!

We never tire–we’ll show you!

Just come and buy stuff at our store.

Chewy Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

I realize this is my first post in a while, since I’ve been rather recently busy.

This summer I went to an AWESOME summer camp in the mountains. Generally, the food for every meal was amazing. This particular recipe I made, these “Chewy Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips,” were inspired by the  cookies that were served one evening at that summer camp. My goal was to get them nice and chewy, and rich and chocolaty–very much like the ones at camp, and I think they turned out amazing.

The second time I made them, (and by suggestion of one of my friends), we added crushed Heath Bars to the mix and it tasted PERFECT. So feel free to do that as well, but it is purely optional.

So try them out; if you love chocolate, you’ll love these cookies!

The almond butter adds protein and fiber while the coconut oil adds healthy-ness and moistness. These cookies are just as easy to throw together as any other cookie, but are healthier in some ways…not to mention extremely delicious. Enjoy!
