MACRO FRIENDLY SNACK IDEA
This Pina Colada Parfait is a delicious way to hit your macros with an afternoon snack! Macro Friendly means that it has a balanced number of proteins and carbohydrates, and a low number of fats! The macros for one serving are 291 Calories, 19P 36C 7F.
With macros this good, you can have this parfait any time of the day! Make it for breakfast, as a post workout meal, or for an any time snack! I’m sure that you will love it!
WHAT PROTEIN POWDER SHOULD I USE?
You can use ANY vanilla protein powder you want with this recipe! I only use a half of a scoop, so you can use what you have on hand.
If you are looking for a protein powder recommendation, I LOVE the Beverly International Ultimate Muscle Protein- Angel Food Cake Flavor! It tastes like an enhanced vanilla and I love it!
The best thing about this protein is that you can shop it on Amazon and have it shipped right to your door! Shop this UMP protein powder here!– this is an affiliate link. I will make a small portion of the sale, at no additional cost to you!
You can also totally skip the protein powder if it’s not your thing! Leave it out and your calories will be slightly lower, as well as your total protein and that is okay!
FRESH OR FROZEN PINEAPPLE?
Either! I actually almost always keep frozen pineapple tidbits in my freezer, so that’s what I frequently use! If you have fresh pineapple, go ahead and use that! It’s whatever you have on hand will work for this recipe!
