Health Benefits of These Valentine’s Cake Pops

Grass-Fed Dairy

This recipe calls for both grass-fed cream cheese as well as grass-fed butter. While dairy comes with its own health benefits like protein and fat-soluble vitamins, grass-fed dairy takes the nutrition up a notch — especially in the fat department. 

As opposed to conventional dairy, grass-fed dairy is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are essential to cellular health and play a vital role in combating inflammation in your body[*][*].

Cows fed grass also produce dairy that’s more abundant in the polyunsaturated fatty acid CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). In fact, grass-fed dairy can be up to 500 times more rich in CLA than conventional dairy. Among its reported health benefits, CLA may help combat diseases like cancer and diabetes[*][*][*].

Collagen Supports Joint Health

One ingredient that you’ll find in these cake pops that may take you by surprise is collagen powder. While many people throw collagen into their morning coffee or shake, collagen is a fantastic ingredient that can provide a boost in protein to almost any recipe.

Beyond its protein content, however, collagen also offers benefits that directly support the health of your joints. Specifically, the cartilage that supports your joints in their fluid movement. Collagen is the primary protein that makes up cartilage, and as such, consuming collagen can help keep your cartilage and joints strong and healthy[*].

Valentine’s Day Cake Pops 

Cake pops make fun and festive Valentine’s Day treats. Have fun with these little cakes and splurge on some cake decorating supplies like sprinkles and chocolate chips. 

To begin, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. 

While your oven is heating up, grab a large bowl, and add mix together the first four ingredients and set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, mix your melted butter, eggs, and almond milk, and then add to your larger bowl, mixing well to combine wet and dry ingredients.

Next, grab a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and spread the batter so it’s about 2 centimeters thick and bake cake for 12-14 minutes, or until easily pierced with a toothpick.

While the cake is cooling, whip together the cream cheese, butter, sweetener, and vanilla flavoring.

Once cooled, crumble cake into a large bowl and using a hand mixer, mix in cream cheese mixer. Note: be careful not to add too much, the frosting is meant to act as a glue, so make sure your mixture is still cake-like.

Use a cookie scoop to scoop the batter, roll into a ball, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and chill for 20 minutes.

While your cake balls are chilling, whip together your icing. 

Finally, stick your cake pop sticks into your cake balls and dunk them into your frosting of choice. Cover them in sugar-free sprinkles, or whatever toppings you like, and allow them to chill for another 10 minutes.

Baking Tips:

If you don’t want to dip your cake balls in chocolate completely, you can also drizzle melted chocolate on top. 

For heart-shaped cake pops, place cake balls into a heart mold or shape them by hand before baking.

Top your cake balls with sugar-free toppings like heart sprinkles, sugar-free white chocolate, or chocolate chips. 

If you want to make chocolate cake, add cocoa to the cake mix, and for red velvet cake, add some red food coloring.
