If your sweet tooth is acting up again right before bed then consider trying this crunchy, sweet, creamy salad.
While any type of apple will work in this salad, I find that honey crisp, pink lady or sweet tango to taste the best.
The protein that I used in this recipe is my favorite vanilla flavored protein. With a name like Frosted Vanilla Cake you know it’s gonna taste great! It’s part of our FBBC Approved, Trulean super-clean, no-artificial sweeteners line of products to support our fit and healthy lifestyle.
You could certainly make this recipe using whatever vanilla protein powder you have on hand, though do know that the quality of the protein will have an effect on the flavor of your creamy salad. Use one that’s really tasty!
