Cool down while satisfying a post-workout sweet tooth with these high-protein frozen desserts.
Proyo High Protein Frozen Yogurt
In addition to 20 grams of recovery-boosting whey protein, these tubes of frozen yogurt are packed with probiotics. The texture is thick and creamy. Taste-test favorites were the vanilla and banana vanilla flavors (also available in Dutch chocolate and blueberry pomegranate). Made with all-natural ingredients, such as banana purée and vanilla beans, and sweetened with stevia, these fro-yo tubes are a convenient, mess-free way to recover after a hot workout. Each tube contains 140–150 calories and 15–17 grams of carbs.
$2.49 per tube, Proyofrozenyogurt.com
Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt
Made with high-quality Greek yogurt and all natural ingredients, these bars have a satisfying dessert-like texture and are available as either a stick bar (on a popsicle stick) or a stick-free frozen candy bar in a variety of flavors. The creamy chocolate chip cookie dough stick bar and caramel-filled toffee crunch candy bar won in the taste test, and with 4–6 grams of protein per bar, you’ll be eagerly anticipating the end of your workout with these sitting in the freezer. Each bar has no more than 150 calories and a healthy dose of calcium.
$5.49 for box of four, Yasso.com
Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Dessert
Grab a spoon and dig into this lactose-free, low-glycemic frozen treat. Pints range from just 150–300 calories and have no artificial ingredients. Sweetened with cane sugar and monk fruit, Arctic Zero has a subtle sweetness, which sometimes lends a milder flavor, but taste-testers especially loved the cool mint chip, toasted coconut and vanilla maple flavors (there are 15 options available). Each pint has 12 grams of whey protein and 8–12 grams of fiber, and while we can’t say you’ll mistake it for real ice cream, it’s a great lactose-free alternative with fewer calories and less fat.
$4 per pint, Arcticzero.com
