Swaps for Protein Power: Dessert
How many times have you had to choose between feeling deprived versus caving into your sweet tooth? Neither choice is a good one, but what if you could have the ideal: a sweet something without much sugar, and a punch of protein to boot? Look no further for sweet treats that can deliver protein and get you to your weight loss goals.
Cookies and Cake
When you think of protein, do cookies and cake come to mind? If they didn’t already, they should now. Protein Cakes and Cookies can have as much as 18 grams of protein per serving, with as little as a cool 0 grams of sugar. There is no compromising on taste, with flavors including chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate and gingerbread cake mixes, and even chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling.
Pudding is a comfort food that may have a special place in your heart if it was a childhood favorite, but it may not taste so good now that you know you are mostly spooning sugar into your mouth when you have it. Swap protein for sugar when you choose Protein Pudding with about 80 calories and 15 grams of protein. Select classic flavors such as Chocolate or Banana, or branch out a little with options such as Mocha Crème or Toffee Crème.
