Delicious and adorable Easter treats for a bariatric diet!
When Easter rolls around you may not even be thinking about sweets and then you walk into a grocery store and BOOM. Candy displays everywhere, exploding with the wonderful colors of spring. Marshmallow bunnies, jellybeans, giant chocolate bunnies and caramel eggs at every checkout counter. It’s a feast for the eyes and impossible to ignore!
Although these sugary treats seem to be staples of the spring holiday, there are healthy alternatives that can be just as festive! Whether you need Easter treats for a party, a fun activity to do with your kids, or you just want to stick to your bariatric diet, Bari Life’s Vanilla Bunny Protein Treats are super easy, fun and most of all a healthy way to celebrate the holiday!
Bari Life Vanilla Protein Pudding/Shake – 7 packets come in one box. You only need 3-4 packets to make 24 bunny treats!
Rainbow Sprinkles or
Bunny Silicone Treat Mold
2 cups cold water – you could also use milk
The Bari Life Vanilla Protein Pudding/Shakes are the BEST! They are so quick and easy to make. For the pudding consistency, which we will be making today, you only add 4 ounces of water (or milk) for each packet. For a shake consistency you add 8 ounces of water (or milk). The vanilla mix can be used in countless recipes. Not only is this product Gluten Free, but it is Soy Free too! One packet has only 80 calories and 15 grams of protein per serving
We love the bunny silicone treat molds for Spring and Easter, but you can use any silicone treat mold your heart desires! =) There are some pretty adorable options out there.
Pour the 4 packets of Bari Life Vanilla Protein Pudding/Shake into a bowl. Add 16 ounces of cold water. Beat with a whisk until the powder has dissolved.
Sprinkle in your favorite sprinkles!
Pour the pudding into the molds, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm. It’s easiest just to leave them in for a few hours…they can stay in the freezer until you’re ready to enjoy! When they’re ready just pop them out. They need to be stored in the freezer.
The best part is that they taste really, really good! These bark bites are just so easy to make. Writing up the instructions takes longer than actually making them!
Note: Don’t use the crystalized sprinkles! See picture below:
The crystal sugar sprinkles began to dissolve and made it so that the bunnies wouldn’t harden all the way.

You can put the leftover in a bowl and let it set in the fridge for a delicious bowl of pudding later. Add your favorite fruit to spruce it up for an even more filling snack
