Perform 100 Fruit Filled Popsicles

Yep, popsicles! We know it’s a little early, but with the warm weather spreading across the country, we could not resist. Who doesn’t love a naturally good for you and delicious popsicle?! Whatever combination of Perform 100 and fruit you choose, you are getting a protein packed, vitamin rich popsicle! At about 35 calories each, Perform 100 Fruit Filled Popsicles are a healthy low calorie treat. We used a Crate and Barrel popsicle making kit. But these could easily be made in paper cups with wooden sticks or even an ice cube tray.

Make a shaker cup of your preferred Perform 100 flavor, we used the cherry flavor. Pour the drink into the popsicle molds you are using and place them in the freezer. After about an hour, add your fruit and the popsicle sticks. You might have to gently smash through the top layer of ice. For our popsicles we added blueberries. Wait for the popsicles to come to a hard freeze, unmold and enjoy!

Let your imagination be your guide with your own Perform 100 Fruit Filled Popsicles – Cherry-Lime Perform 100 with blackberries would be a great combination, Perform 100 Lemonade with stawberry pieces, Perform 100 Peach-Mango with raspberries….

Bring on summer!
