.living well.


 

Okay so I’ve been finding it hard to squeeze in the abundance of protein I need to get through the day. Well, it’s not that hard but the truth is I tend to gravitate towards carby substances and let’s face it; we all love sweets more than we should. Even the cleanest of clean eaters has a weak spot.

But fuck that; no more will satisfying my sweet tooth make me a fatty. I have concocted a recipe for protein ice cream. It’s so good in fact that I don’t want normal icecream in comparison.

And you can make it yourself because I’m lovely and wish to share my recipe with you…

Ingredients: 

*3 tblspn of Sugar Free Caramel Syrup – Gloria Jeans

*3 packets of Stevia (equivalent 6 teaspoons of sweetener)

*1 tblspn of Peanut Butter (I used a smooth consistency p.b, crunchy would work too)

*1 tspn of Vanilla Extract

*1 tub of Fat Free cottage cheese

Add everything into the blender and whizz it up till you get a really good consistency, similar to soft serve ice cream. Add into a tupperware container and freeze for minimum 1 hour. I left it in there for 3 hours and it’s a bit hard so next time I’ll try something different. I also am not going to use Peanut Butter next time as it seems to be adding unnecessary fats/carbs but I don’t know how it’ll taste without it. The finished product reminds me of a Peanut Butter cheese cake if that’s even possible. Try it, let me know what you think. I’m sure there is a million other ways to serve this (I’m thinking lemon juice, strawberries instead of PB and Caramel) and I’m going to find out all of them this week by experimenting.
