These High Protein Low Carb Almond Vanilla Popsicles are made without sugar and make a healthy treat.
I haven’t thought about protein and carbs as much in my whole life as I have these last few months. My husband, Tim, decided he was going to make some diet changes and started following a lower carb way of eating.
I admit I’ve never been much of a counter when it comes to my food. I don’t count calories or carbs or fat grams or protein. Pasta in any form is pretty much my favorite meal. I’ve always just strived for balance and figure if I eat a big enough variety, I’ll get all the macronutrients I need in the correct amounts.
At the same time, Tim has found something that works for him (he’s lost 30+ pounds and feels great) and I support my husband. Since I’m the main cook in this family, I’m happy to help him by creating yummy recipes that fit into his diet, like this High Protein Low Carb Almond Vanilla Popsicle.
Whether you follow a low carb diet or not, it’s a good idea to snack on foods that are low in sugar and have a decent amount of protein to keep you full. These popsicles achieve that by using Silk’s Protein Nutmilk, which has 10 grams of protein per serving. The milk gets its protein from a plant-based pea protein, which I love.
Even though I created this recipe for my husband, my kids were the first taste testers and both of them approved. I’d call that a win! It’s a great way to get some extra protein into your kiddos if they are the type of kids with carb-heavy diets who shun foods with proteins.
These tasty popsicles have just 132 calories each with 6 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar, and 5 grams carbs.
These High Protein Low Carb Almond Vanilla Popsicles make a perfect snack for hot summer days. I hope you give this one a try!
