When the sun’s out (hopefully!), ice cream is the answer to cool down. These lollies might be chocolatey but are also healthy and very easy to make – simply blend, freeze and decorate!
Chocolate Protein Lollies
Keep any extra lollies in the freezer for up to 1 month.
- For The Lollies
- 6 frozen bananas
- 150ml almond milk
- 3 tbsp cacao powder or cocoa powder
- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- To Decorate
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 4 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- Pinch of sea salt
- Flaked almonds
- Cacao nibs
Place the frozen bananas into your Ninja Kitchen blender with the other ingredients and whizz up for a good few minutes until quite thick and smooth.
Divide between 6 lolly molds and fill to the top then place the sticks in. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
When ready to serve, remove from the freezer 5 minutes beforehand. Meanwhile whisk together the coconut oil, honey/maple syrup, cacao/cocoa powder almond milk and sea salt until smooth.
Drizzle or spread this over the lollies then decorate with almonds and/or cacao nibs. Enjoy!
