My mind always wanders to ice cubes and cold, sugary popsicles.
Actually, I love crisp refreshing pops any time of the day, doesn't even have to be after a run.
Needless to say I was thrilled when King of Pops RVA approached Brittany [Btypes], Brittany [Eating Birdfood] and me to create collaboration post-run Recovery Pops.
here to find the carts, they're always on the go. They also have branches in Athens, Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, and Chattanooga.
Anyway, back in April, Brittany squared and I headed over to the King of Pops RVA brew spot over in the industrial district and started cooking.
All 3 of us bloggies came up with our own pop creations, inspired by favorite flavors and what we love/crave after a hard workout.

Brittany's Icy Hot pop
I love greek yogurt (protein), blueberries (antioxidants), and honey (carbs) after a run, so I mixed all these ingredients and created the Greek Olympian Runner pop.
We had a blast making the pops.
The pops were sold at the Monument Avenue 10K, the Hardywood Twilight 4 Miler, Color Me Rad Richmond, and various events throughout town.
Next time you're in Richmond and see the King of Pops cart, ask for the Greek Olympian Runner pop :)
Have you ever made popsicles before??
This was my first time (with a lot of guidance) and they turned out super well, I'm hoarding some in my freezer because they were so delicious.
