As a native to Utah and as one who likes to spend lots of time in the mountains, I’ve seen quite a few moose and therefore many moose tracks in my lifetime.
However, I must admit that I’ve never seen moose tracks out in nature and thought, “Hmm. That would make a great ice cream flavor name!”
So out of curiosity, I decided to do some research and see why the combination of vanilla, fudge, and peanut butter cups got the name Moose Tracks.
Turns out the name was simply a marketing ploy to make consumers more interested in the new ice cream flavor. It has nothing to do with moose or moose tracks.
It was a smart move because now nearly everyone has heard of Moose Tracks and is a beloved flavor. I mean let’s be honest there are few better tastes in life than peanut butter and fudge wrapped in a creamy vanilla blanket.
Moose Tracks Made Healthy
You know what else is a smart move? Making this healthified version of the shake.
You’ll get all the delicious vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter flavor with half the calories and double the protein.
The miracle of this shake has got to be PB2. If you haven’t heard of PB2 It’s basically powdered peanut butter. When you mix it with water it has the consistency and taste of regular peanut butter just with 85% less fat.
The other fantastic bonus of this recipe is it’s fairly low carb and very low in sugars. You can chug this tasty shake and won’t have to worry about an energy slump later.
This is exactly the kind of dessert I like. Tasty, guilt free, and high in protein!
