Craving a sweet treat after a sweaty summer workout? Cool down with this protein-packed green smoothie popsicle recipe - trainer approved!
This is my go-to post-workout smoothie. It tastes like a treat and is loaded with protein. Smoothies can be dangerous because they're so easy to load up with too much sugar and calories, but if you do them right, they're a great way to refuel your body after a workout. Hot Tip: Pour your smoothie mixture into popsicle molds, set in the freezer, and have green smoothie popsicles ready-made to satisfy sweet cravings on hot summer days.
