Did you over-indulge a little on your holiday treats? We’ve all been there. Let’s start this year off with some healthy treat swaps that still let you enjoy your sweets, but help you do it in a smart way.


Make Nice Cream 

Nice cream is a frozen treat that you’ll love in place of ice cream. In a blender, add a frozen banana, a half scoop of protein powder, and a little liquid to smooth it out. Blend and adjust the liquid to get your preferred consistency.

Craft DIY Popsicles

Grab a popsicle mold and get creative! You’ll need a blender to puree your favorite fruit and add a little liquid to get your preferred consistency. Pour into the mold and freeze until solid. 


Favorite ingredient combo:

  • Container of fresh strawberries
  • Container of fresh raspberries
  • Coconut water


Stir Up Some Chocolate Fluff

This is an idea I got from TikTok that will blow your mind. You’ll need:


  • Container of lite whipped topping, thawed
  • Banana, sliced
  • Package of sugar-free chocolate pudding mix
  • A sprinkle of dark chocolate chips

Mix everything together in the whipped topping container and freeze. Enjoy from the freezer.


Roll Some Energy Balls

These little guys are a nice treat to grab and take with you. All you have to do is combine ingredients, roll into balls, and chill. So easy!
