I finally realized that I can never go wrong with a chocolate pop so I got out some ingredients and went to work.
The first thing I did was to determine how much volume I would need to fill the 6 moulds. I filled one up with water and poured it into a large measuring cup 6 times, just for accuracy sake. My 6 new moulds hold 3 cups of liquid.
I like to use protein powder because I feel it offers more nutritional value than just plain cocoa would, and the yogurt gives these a nice creamy texture.
I am so happy our hot weather is holding on into September so we still feel like eating frozen treats!
Here is how I made them up.. you could easily use a different chocolate protein powder, and change the amounts of the ingredients to meet your own needs.
