The high protein ice cream you need to add to your shopping list STAT

We tried it and we've got a few things to say...

By Team Triple White • 1 year ago • HEALTH & FITNESS

 

If we’re being real, ‘protein content’ isn’t really the first thing we think about when we reach into the freezer for some cookies’n’cream. That being said, when our team found out about FroPro, Australia’s only protein ice cream with a 5-star health rating, we knew we had to get our spoons out – all in the name of research, of course!

Background

Thorough researchers that we are, we did a little digging to find out where this wondrous treat came from and discovered that FroPro is the passion project of ex-professional Rugby Union player, Ed O’Donoghue.

Determined to create a nutritious ice cream alternative for health-conscious athletes and fitness fans alike, O’Donohuge started by experimenting with protein powder in his kitchen and before long, FroPro was born! With the protein proof clearly in the pudding, we knew the deciding factor would all come down to taste.

The Verdict:

We came, we ate, we conquered! After tesing out all three flavours (we are nothing if not thorough!) at our Friday afternoon meeting, the results are in:

Lauren Earl, Head of Content: “My fave was Salted Caramel! So delish and really creamy. The only downside was that I ate way too much ’cause I couldn’t stop! [Laughs].”

Brooke MacDonald, Customer Service Representative: “Salted Caramel tasted like real, sugary, ‘bad for you’ ice cream! The flavour was absolute delish and made better without the guilty ‘Should I really be eating this?’ feelings!”

Sukriti Wahi, Digital Copywriter: “I’m a sucker for anything salted caramel and I was not disappointed when I tried this one – hands down my favourite of the lot. It tastes way naughtier than it is so it’s kind of perfect for when you want that sweet hit without undoing your gym sesh! The other two flavours were good but this would definitely be my go-to.”

Jasna Stevanja, Chief People Officer: “Salted Caramel was D- LISH!”

Jessica Eagles, Customer Service Representative: “Chocolate was AMAZINGGGG! Super creamy and delicious!”

FroPro is currently stocked in over 650 Woolworths stores nationwide at only $10 RRP. Discover your nearest stockist at www.fropro.com.au.
