It s time to upgrade your after-exercise snack from a boring protein bar and a swig of lukewarm water to one of these refreshing protein popsicles.

1 large banana

2 cups frozen mango chunks

2 heaping scoops of unflavored whey powder

1 tsp honey

1 cup milk

2 cups water

Cinnamon and ground cardamom to taste

Divide into four servings and freeze.

Most smoothies will benefit from a little bit of sweetener, so taste a spoonful and see what you think.

To find the nutrition content of your creation, use a recipe analyzer like the one at CalorieCount.com.

While your home freezer is obviously the best place to store popsicles, a well-packed cooler may be able to keep frozen treats cold in your car while you run or hike or work out far from home.
