Post-Workout Snack: Pineapple Coconut Macadamia Nut Frozen Pop


Now that I have been having a regular workout schedule I have started to research what foods are best to eat before and after your workout. I used to workout on an empty stomach and just learned by eating a meal with some carbs and protein it gives you the energy to work harder. I like to eat a small bowl of oatmeal with some fruit and a couple of slices of bacon. This gives me just enough energy without making me feel full or bloated.


After I come home from my workout out I like to recover by eating lots of protein. It was always a protein shake that I would mix with my favorite Silk Vanilla Soy Milk. I started getting bored of the same shake but didn't want to be in the kitchen cooking a meal to make something else. Since the weather is getting warmer I decided to concoct a yummy frozen pop that was tropical and had my favorite nuts in it. I wanted it to be loaded with protein so I used Silk Soy milk as the base so I could get a great start with 8 grams of plant powdered protein. Not only is it natually low in saturated fat and has no cholesterol but it also tastes delicious.


Pineapple Coconut Macadamia Nut Frozen Pop
  • 3/4 cup vanilla Silk Soy Milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple chopped and then frozen
  • 1/2 tblsp natural sweetener of choice, more or less to taste
  • 2 tblsp macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 tblsp unsweetened coconut flakes
  1. Add Silk soy milk, coconut, pineapple and sweetener into a blender. Blend until smooth. 
  2. Place macadamia nuts and coconut into a small bowl and mix together. 
  3. Place the pop sticks and then a tablespoon of the pop liquid into each chamber. Sprinkle in about 1/2 tablespoon of the macadamia nut and coconut mix into each chamber. Fill the remaining space with the frozen pop liquid. 
  4. Allow to freeze completely then pop out and enjoy. 
**If you don't have a zoku maker you can use the plastic pop makers or small paper cups with a stick in the middle. First add a layer of the pop mix and let it freeze. Then add a layer of the coconut and macadamia mix and then fill the rest with the pop mix.


These are incredebily yummy and fun to eat after a hard workout. The protein from the Silk milk and carbs from the fruit recovers your worked muscles.
