BAVARIAN FRUIT TORTE
This is the easiest dessert in the world. Most fruit, except bananas and pineapple, has about 15 carb grams per cup. So you can mix fruit, have a cup of it, and it balances perfectly with the 15gm protein in a protein drink. Here is my favorite:
BAVARIAN FRUIT CUP - 3 servings
1 cup strawberries, frozen
1 cup cherries, frozen
1 cup raspberries, frozen
Splenda to taste
Mix all three ingredients. Serve with 15gm of protein to keep blood sugar from spiking. Add Land O'Lakes Sugar Free Whipped Cream for a perfect topping.
Just remember, no trans-fat in the whipped topping - avoid anything that says partially hydrogenated on the label.
To make a Bavarian Torte, just mix fat free cream cheese and sugar free whipped cream and vanilla. Make a layer with sugar free brownie and top with filling and then top with sugar free brownie. Place the final layer of cream cheese filling and top with Bavarian Fruit.
But watch those protein and carb grams. The brownie may have more carbs than protein, so make sure you serve this with another protein drink.
