Protein Ice Cream

Ice cream, how I’ve missed you.

Ice Cream 1

This recipe has become a regular in my house. I’m a straight out of the pint kind of person, so traditional ice cream has been a serious no-no for the waistline. But this protein ice cream has changed all that.

At 40 calories a serving, this treat is a game changer. But it’s also only 120 calories plus 17 grams of protein for the whole darn batch, which is perfect for those of us who are challenged in the self control department.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, you don’t even need an ice cream maker! Feel free to send me flowers. Or a meaningful hug. Via email. Never mind.

Let’s look at the stats for one (1/2 cup) serving of chocolate Haagen Dazs. 260 calories? 17g of fat? and 22 grams of carbs? in only half a cup?? I don’t know how they even do that.

It’s an overpriced miracle of fattiness and my stretchy pants will never live this down.

Ice Cream 2

Solution? This recipe make 1 1/2 cup of healthy ice creamy indulgence for 120 calories. That’s 40 calories a serving with only 1 gram of fat and 6 grams of protein!

Haagen Daas, who?

Ice Cream 4

That’s what I thought.

There’s something about sitting down with a bowlful of that cold, creamy indulgence. Grab your favorite spoon and dig in.  The only thing that could make this better?

Cookie Dough Crumble Bars

I ate no fewer than 4 straight out of the oven.

Cookie Bars 5

This is just an absurdly decadent confection that way shouldn’t be healthy but is anyway. I was so confused by the utter deliciousness I had to sample x4. Or more. Could have been 6. I did this instead of my math homework so it really could be anything.

We’re talking indulgent cookie dough studded with chocolate, given the lux treatment by the ambrosia that is sweetened condensed milk. 90 calories. 1 net carb (!!??!!). Oh yes.

Cookie Bars 8

The magic of this recipe is in the magic of the simple yet stunning flavor combination. There’s just something cookie dough and sweetened condensed milk. I mean you had me at cookie dough, but once you bring in swconmlk? (<- painful abbreviation for sweetened condensed milk I just came up with please don’t use it ever thanks)

Minds will be blown.

Cookie Bars 9

Make sure to be mesmerized by the all-consuming deliciousness of this dessert and ignore last week’s manicure. It’s a team effort around here.

Cookie Bars 4

I’m pretty sure sweetened condensed milk is actually sweetened condensed dreams of completel and utter joyful blissful euphoric happiness. But that’s harder to remember so they just called it milk for short.

Cookie Bars 7

Take it to the next level (yes it’s possible) both taste and health wise with my homemade version.

Cookie Bar 1

This is the parting of the sweet seas over here I mean seriously.

I brought them to school tied up in a bow all fancy like. Kids fought over them. I’m prouder of that than I should be.
