This stuff is amazing, not only is it seriously delicious, but it’s HIGH IN PROTEIN and LOW IN FAT! Um, yes please!

Josh and I try to make Friday evenings our date night. Once we get Brighton to bed, we settle in for a movie, trade back rubs and share some sort of fun treat. After tasting this ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream, I have no doubt it will be making a regular Friday night appearance this summer. And with baby on board, I’m constantly looking for ways to increase my daily protein, what better way than with this delicious, guiltless, low-fat, high protein treat?!


I’m currently a bit obsessed with making healthy homemade popsicles. I love having something yummy and cold that I can share with Brighton after playing outside in the heat. These ProYo Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Bean Fudge Pops with Chocolate Hazelnut Butter are exactly that – a healthy, yummy, frozen treat! Using the ProYo ice cream made these incredibly simple to make. I added a bit of homemade chocolate hazelnut spread for a fun twist and seriously, so good!

Instructions
  1. Remove ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams from freezer and allow to thaw on the counter for 10 minutes.

Return to freezer another 15-20 minutes to allow mixture to firm.

Notes
*I used maple syrup in place of the raw sugar called for in the All Natural Hazelnut Butter listed in the recipe above.
**The number of layers you're able to get may depend on the size of your popsicle molds, I was able to get four, but they did somewhat blend together, still so tasty!
***Try running each mold under warm/hot water for 15-20 seconds to help popsicle release from mold easily.
