The Easiest Snickerdoodle Protein Ice Cream

The Easiest Snickerdoodle Protein Ice Cream

I bet you thought I’d get tired of creating protein ice cream recipes.. welp, that’s not possible. I eat this stuff morning, noon and night and I’m always looking for new combinations. Sometimes I like to keep it pretty simple for the sake of time, and that’s what I’ve done here.

With just a few ingreients, you can enjoy a delicious dessert packed with protein, and very macro-friendly.



The Good Stuff:

1 scoop vanilla or snickerdoodle protein powder (I recommend Select Protein – I used vanilla for this recipe but the Snickerdoodle flavor is amazing – check out my review)

260ml of vanilla unsweetened 30 calorie almond milk (or dairy of your preference)

6g cinnamon

2-3g xanthan gum (best place to buy: Xanthan Gum)

3-5g splenda (to taste)

215g of ice


Directions:

  1. Combine ingredients into Nutribullet, beginning with the ice on the bottom.
  2. Blend up with smooth, and then some. It should be one consistent smooth texture – similar to soft serve ice cream or a little thicker.
  3. Pour out into a bowl and mix in all the goodies!

Macros:

4.5g fat, 5g carbs, 25g protein. 160 calories.


Modifications:

My favorite thing to top this with is cinnamon toast crunch!

Macro-friendly Protein Strawberry Shortcake

Macro-friendly Protein Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

I’ll be honest, most of the recipes on BuildingBri.com I tend to stumble into creating. I cook for myself all week, always looking for ways to make my meals more inventive or fun. But at the end of the day, the ones that make it onto a post are usually because they’re so good that I had to post them. I rarely ever try to make a particular food item macro-friendly, I usually just start cooking and what comes out is always macro-friendly by default!

This one is no different. I stumbled on this recipe when making protein pancakes. I cooked them just like my Apple Cinnamon Oat Protein Waffles Recipe with a few adjustments because I was missing oats & cinnamon. After I cooked them I realized that they tasted just like shortcake. And then, BAM, new recipe.


The Good Stuff:

Protein Ice Cream:

1 scoop vanilla bean protein powder (I recommend Select Protein)

50g unsweetened applesauce

3g baking powder

46g egg whites

15g whole wheat flour

optional goodies:

14g fat free whipped cream

60g sliced strawberries


Directions:

  1. Combine dry ingredients. Add in wet ingredients. Mix well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degress.
  3. Pour mixture into a mini spring foil pan after greasing it with a non-stick spray.
  4. Cook for 10-15 mins or until the middle is mostly cooked through. Leaving it a tiny bit uncooked  keeps it moist.
  5. Pop it out of the pan.
  6. Top with all the goodies and enjoy!

Macros:

With toppings: 3g fat, 32g carbs, 35g protein. 290 calories.

Without toppings: 3g fat, 23g carbs, 35g protein. 270 calories.


Modifications:

Customize this however you’d like to fit your macros.
