For most of us, we buy protein to make shakes. If we want to get really creative we’ll add a scoop of peanut butter and throw it in a blender with some ice. Many of the recipes I’ve seen using protein bars or powder look a tad daunting. A cinnamon walnut coffee cake sounds great, but I probably won’t make it. One of my favorite simple recipes in the summer is protein ice cream. A couple scoops of ModernPROTEIN™ popped in the freezer with a few other ingredients you already have and voila!! You have a delicious frozen dessert with a healthy serving of protein.
- 2 Scoops of Milk Chocolate USPlabs ModernPROTEIN™
- 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1 Large (6-8 inches in length) Banana
- 2 Tablespoons of Sweetener of Your Choice
- 1 Cup of Low Fat Cottage Cheese
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup of Water
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend for 60 seconds leaving a thick consistency. Pour into a container and freeze for 2-3 hours
- This recipe also creates a base for an awesome sundae. Add low-calorie or 0 calorie chocolate syrup, sugar-free whipped cream and maybe even splurge a little, top with a cherry.
- Add 1-2 Scoops of your favorite nut butter for even more protein and added creaminess.
- Buy bigger spoons. You'll want them after you try this out.
