Fun fact about me: I absolutely love birthday cake-flavored desserts, which is why I’ve made so many healthy versions of them. And this Healthy Birthday Cake Freezer Fudge over delivers on the birthday cake flavor, but it’s suuper easy to make (like even easier than making a from-the-box cake).
It’s one of my favorite snacks—I like cutting it into bite size squares so I can just pop one whenever I’m craving something sweet or feeling hangry (they’ll stabilize your blood sugar ASAP).
They’re also perfect to eat before bed, especially if you have anxiety or insomnia issues—you can learn about this more from Dr. Ellen Vora on the Ask the Doctor: Anxiety edition episode of the podcast—but often, when we wake up anxious in the middle of the night, it’s because of a blood sugar crash, which these little babies will help prevent.
The secret to that amazing birthday cake flavor? WAY too much vanilla and just a hint of almond extract. It somehow gives that bite on the back of your tongue that makes things cake batter-y, and is one of my go-to kitchen tricks.

Like I said, I love all healthy birthday cake desserts, and I’ve made a bunch of them to prove it. Since this Healthy Birthday Cake Freezer Fudge takes like five minutes to make, might I suggest making one of these next.

Besides the fact that they help stabilize your blood sugar, these are one of my go-to snacks for sooo many reasons. They only call for seven ingredients (and that includes the rainbow sprinkles!), and all you’ve got to do is stir, pour, freeze. That’s it! They’re also gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan…should I go on or are you convinced?! Snag the recipe below, and tell me what you think!
Watch it being made!
Enjoy, and tag me if you make it on Instagram (@lizmoody)—I can’t wait to see!Print
