I am one who firmly believes that other than your birthday it should only be an adults right to have cake for breakfast. Unless, they are frozen yogurt cakes. Frozen yogurt cakes are yummy single serve frozen yogurts that you can load with toppings, cookies, or whatever on the bottom and and add yogurt for the “cake” flip it over and it’s a Upside Down Frozen Yogurt Treat! It’s hard to find a good frozen yogurt like everything something that was supposed to be a healthier alternative can now be considered as sugary over indulgence. I’ve stumbled upon a Yummy Protein Frozen Yogurt that will meat your ice cream craving.
ProYo is a new yummy treat that my family cannot get enough! Before ProYo came to my house they would go through quart after quart of ice cream. I say they because I couldn’t eat it with my dairy sensitivities BUT then there came ProYo and now I can indulge too. When I say indulge it really isn’t a guilty pleasure because it’s actually pretty nutrient dense for a frozen treat; containing cultured probiotics, 15 g of Carbs, 20g of Protein and 2 g of fat! They are junk free treats which is very important to me Soy Free, Gluten Free, GMO free, Yep! These bad boys totally fit into my macros seamlessly. They also have are diabetic friendly testing at a glycemic level of 27 and taste like creamy homemade ice cream. They are so good. I have had protein frozen yogurt that has that weird protein taste and not with these. You wouldn’t even know there was protein in them.
I like to try new things so I saw someone make a “yogurt cake” on IG and I of course went to waste time on Pinterest. After many variations and sips of water to ward off the craving I decided to give it a try with my ProYo for a different dessert! THEN I had a brilliant idea to try these yummy raw cookies that I make from my favorite Sweets in the Raw by Laura Marquis. It’s a no sugar added, sugar free, raw sweets cookbook of really easy delicious recipes with affordable ingredients. So, I made the Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Vanilla Bean Macaroons to place on the bottom and they turned out amazing. The Banana takes like Banana Pudding which is a favorite treat of mine and also the recipe. You can have this for Breakfast, Snack or dessert and you are going to be getting the Protein, Fiber, Pre and Probiotics that your tummy needs to start or end your day. ProYo just in the tube is great for post workout snack. If you want to find ProYo at your local grocers check it out here and let me know what you think?
