Protein-Packed Peppermint Bark
December 18, 2018
If you have ever made peppermint bark, you know that it is the furthest thing from a healthy treat. A typical recipe for peppermint bark contains 40 grams of sugar in only one serving! But if you are like me, peppermint bark is a holiday treat you can’t go without.
Luckily, I have created a healthy version of peppermint bark that also happens to be full of protein. This protein-packed peppermint bark is a great post-workout or mid-afternoon snack to help curb your cravings for holiday treats. Stay healthy over the holidays without having to deprive yourself!
- – 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- – 2 scoops Vanilla AfterBurn
- – 1 tsp. peppermint extract
- – 1 candy cane
- – 2 tablespoons unsweetened mini dark chocolate chips
Line a small bread pan with parchment paper and set aside. Mix yogurt, Vanilla AfterBurn and peppermint extract together until smooth. Place candy cane in a sealed plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin.
Spread yogurt mixture evenly in the bread pan and sprinkle the crushed candy cane and chocolate chips over top. Place on a flat surface in the freezer and allow to freeze for 2 hours. Remove from freezer, allow to sit for 5 minutes and break into small pieces.
