About This Recipe

Remember those creamsicles (ice cream filled popsicles) we used to buy as kids? Here is an extremely convenient way to get a lot of protein in one half-cup serving. Plus, the taste is remarkably like an old-fashioned creamsicle. To make this protein-rich treat easy to grab and go, I purchased an 8-pack of reusable 1/2 cup plastic containers with lids. You can throw one of these in your lunch bag or gym bag along with a plastic spoon and get that protein on the run, without having to worry about a shake breaking down on you if you don't consume it immediately.


  • 1 (0.3 ounce) Box Sugar-Free Gelatin (I like Orange, Cherry, Raspberry, Lemon, or Strawberry)
    or 1 (3 ounce) Box Regular Gelatin--adds 19g of sugar per serving

  • 3 Scoops Good-Tasting Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

  • 1/2 Cup (+/-) Fat Free Half and Half

  • 7/8 Cup Boiling Water


  1. In a 2-cup or larger glass measuring cup, dissolve the gelatin in 7/8 cup of boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

  2. Add three scoops of Vanilla Whey Protein and stir until all lumps disappear. A small whisk will make the protein powder dissolve much quicker. I don't use a blender for this job because the mixture expands and gets too foamy.

  3. Once the protein powder is dissolved, add enough fat free half and half to measure exactly two cups (about 1/2 cup).

  4. Pour the mixture into 4 1/2-cup containers, cover and chill until set.
