Product review: YoPRO frozen dessert

YoPRO frozen dessert is a high protein treat with no added sugar from the makers of my favourite high protein yoghurt.

YoPRO frozen dessert

YoPRO frozen dessert comes in packs of 4 individually wrapped items in the “ice cream in a stick” format. Each serve contains 540 ml of frozen goodness, 105-109 kilocalories (depending on the flavour), 10 grams of protein, no added sugar and no artificial sweeteners.

You can find them in the frozen section of Coles supermarkets. The current available flavours are: Mint Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Berries & Cream, and Chocolate Mocha.

Ingredients

Below are the ingredients lists for a couple of flavours. Note that despite YoPRO is better known for their yoghurts, these desserts are not frozen yoghurt.

Taste test

We have tried the Chocolate Mocha and Berries & Cream flavours and liked them both. They have a creamy texture, clean natural flavour, and are not super sweet. They do need to sit a few minutes outside of the freezer to be “bitable”.

Summary and recommendations

Due to its low sugar and high protein content, YoPRO frozen dessert is a good option for physically active individuals, people looking to improve their body composition and those with blood sugar regulation issues such as insulin resistance and diabetes.

This is a good treat to keep in the freezer to satisfy occasional cravings but not to be had on a daily basis. Remember macros are not everything, remember the bulk of your food intake should come from unprocessed foods.
