Greek Power Pop

August 6th, 2015 (franklin)

Today’s post might be the simplest way to Greek out in a healthy and creative way.  Getting half the fat and 4 times the protein is not the easiest task, but this scrumptious little snack proves otherwise.  If you love the idea, but don’t enjoy walnuts or craisins, feel free to replace these ingredients with almonds or anything hanging around in the kitchen that would suit this snack well.  This snack can become something you never get bored of if you find ways to interchange the ingredients!

Ingredients:

8oz bar Franklin Foods Greek Cream Cheese

1 tbsp honey

2 tbsp chopped craisins

¾ cup chopped walnuts

lollipop sticks

Combine ingredients and gently mix together.

About Anthony

My name is Anthony LaMacchia.  I am currently working for Franklin Foods as a marketing intern.  I will be entering my senior year this fall at Grinnell College where I am a history major and a member of the Men’s Basketball team.

As an athlete, it is very important to be in great physical condition.  One of the ways I keep myself in shape over the offseason is by eating healthy.  Whether I am in school or at home for the summer, this is not a task so easily completed, as it is difficult to find healthy foods that I also enjoy eating.  However, with the help of foods including Franklin Foods Greek Cream Cheese, I am able to eat something that I thoroughly enjoy while taking in half the amount of fat and more protein.  I hope to share and blog about how I eat healthier and stay in shape by using Franklin Foods Greek Cream Cheese and yogurt in recipes and everyday snacks.
