What do you do when it’s hot out, you’re not hungry, but you need more protein to hit your numbers? FREEZE CAKES! These fun protein treats feel like ice cream cake pops but they’re packed full of protein. Can’t wait for you to try them!
What about the new protein packed ice creams you can buy in the store?
Great question. While those are more convenient, they are not made with the “cleanest” ingredients. Artificial flavors and sweeteners aren’t something you should dive into for the sake of macros or calories. Plus, portion control flies out the window with those pint sized packages.
Truth in advertising: these treats started as a way to get my kids away from freeze pops. You know the ones that are essentially colored sugar water? Yep! Those are every kid’s favorite summer treat from what I can tell and I get why: they’re colorful and sweet and parents can pick up an entire bag for like $2.
As much as I loved the price and convenience of those sugary freeze pops, I didn’t love anything else. So I got to work to make a summery frozen snack that *felt* like dessert but was secretly healthy. Like those moms that put zucchini or avacado in brownies so their kids don’t know. 😉
The result was a dessert that not only did my kids beg for (especially the pink ones w/ sprinkles) but my husband and I liked them too! I’m always down for a way to sneak in extra protein without huffing down grilled chicken so these certainly fit the bill.
If you have protein goals + a sweet tooth, these are going to be PERFECT for you! Now you can have your ice cream or freeze cakes and eat them too. 🙂
