Hope you had a great long weekend!
I got an easy, healthy snack idea for you, and if you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love it even more. This DIY ice cream only has a few ingredients, tastes great, and can be thrown together in a few minutes (although it does take a while to freeze).
Plus, it’s versatile. You can flavor it however you want. I used raspberries, but use what you have (or what you want to use up). I started with 18-20 raspberries, which I put in a bowl with a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
Then, using the back of my spoon, I smashed it all together until the powder dissolved.
Then I added one 5.3-ounce container of non-fat plain Greek yogurt. I guess this makes it homemade, high-protein frozen yogurt, right?
And then, just to give it a little extra something-something, I added a dash of cinnamon…
…and stirred it all up.
Then, straight into the freezer. It’d probably be ready in an hour or two, depending on how firm or soft you like your ice cream. I ended up leaving the house for five hours, and it was the perfect snack when I got home at the end of the day.
Even though the yogurt was plain, there was plenty of flavor from the raspberries and vanilla protein powder, and that powder is actually really sweet!
I don’t think you’d eat this and get it confused with Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen-Dazs, but it’s a nice sweet treat that satisfies my ice cream cravings. I ate this bowl while watching Shark Tank on my TiVo.
Oh, and there’s nearly 30 grams of protein in my bowl! (Although that could change, depending on which brand of powder and yogurt you use)
Perfect for after a workout. Filling, too, and best of all, guilt-free!
Keep it up, David!
