If you are anything like us, then you agree that a bowl of Neapolitan ice cream on a warm summer day is one of life’s simple pleasures. So, we figured it only made sense to do our best in recreating this tasty summer treat by making it bariatric friendly! We simply traded in the ice cream for strawberry cake mix, vanilla instant pudding, and chocolate protein powder for complementary flavors!

The chocolate protein powder and vanilla instant pudding perfectly combine with the strawberry cake mix to create a light and fluffy rendition of Neapolitan-style cake batter. After we incorporated the 8 oz of Cool Whip yumminess into the bowl, we portioned off a small serving to taste-test. The end result was a deliciously chilled treat that rivals all cake batter and edible cookie dough brands you can find on the shelves! If you have a little more time on your hands, try pouring the mixture into little sundae cups and freezing for an at-home mini frosty!

Feel free to personalize this recipe! With plenty of different cake, pudding, and protein flavors that line the shelves at your choice grocery store, you have the freedom to think up your favorite desserts and see if you can do a protein whip copycat dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth without the truckload of calories!
