Healthy Gut Popsicles

Hell yeah, I just did. I made Popsicles that are so nutritious you SHOULD eat one every single day!!

A week ago I was sent a sample of Glow Probiotic Powder to try. It is kind of ‘berry’ flavoured from the acai berries I think. It says to add it to a glass of water & drink it…. Meh, that’s a bit boring isn’t it? I then set about other ways to consume this, after adding it to some natural yoghurt with delicious results, these Popsicles evolved.

Chia has long be touted as a superfood and can be dated back as a long term staple nutritional food to the Aztecs. Chia is a natural source of Omega-3s, antioxidants and phytonutrients and is a superior plant-based source of protein and fiber.

1/2 cup protein powder (I used flavorless whey) – this is optional, leave it out if you want to
1/2 cup Chia (I used my MILA chia)
2 cups natural yoghurt (I used Chobani 2%) you can use a non-dairy alternative like CoYo if you like.
1 heaped tablespoon of Glow Inner Beauty Probiotic Powder (if you do not have this/can’t be bothered buying this you can just purée some berries & mix them through.

This is a SIMPLE recipe. Mix everything in a bowl together well. Spoon into your Popsicle moulds and chuck them in the freezer to set. If you don’t have Popsicle moulds, a plastic cup & paddle pop stick will also suffice. Enjoy your healthy gut flora.
