Forte High Protein Gelato
Several years ago my husband and I we fortunate enough to be able to take a trip to Italy. We loved every second of our trip – the culture, the history, and especially the food! We did so much walking and hiking during the day that we had no problem indulging in the local delicacies. One of our favorite after dinner treats was gelato. I think we sampled every flavor that was available! Although we can’t get back to Italy any time soon, we are still enjoying delicious gelato courtesy of Forte High Protein Gelato.
Forte sent my family a great sampling of flavors from their high protein gelato line. They included Vanilla, Chocolate, Ginger, and Espresso. Being a big coffee fan, I dove right into the espresso. If you’re a coffee lover, you will LOVE this flavor. This flavor has a great mix of Arabica espresso and sweet cream. This is by far my favorite flavor of the bunch! My husband is a big ginger fan and he found the ginger flavor gelato to be smooth and refreshing. It’s made with real organic ginger, so you’re reaping the benefits of eating ginger while enjoying a delicious treat. The vanilla and chocolate flavors are classics – the vanilla is creamy and smooth, the chocolate rich and decadent. I love that the Forte brand uses a lot of organic ingredients, and all of their flavors are low cholesterol, gluten free, and high in calcium. Each 4 fluid ounce cup contains an amazing 15 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat and are only 160 calories each!
The Forte team has worked hard to transform classic Italian gelato into a perfect healthy high protein snack that you don’t have to feel guilty about. They aim to maintain the traditional style, taste, and texture of authentic Italian gelato, and I think they have done a fantastic job of it!
