5 Easy Protein Blizzards

5 Easy Protein Blizzards

Who doesn't love a Dairy Queen Blizzard or Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream?

I think we can all agree that these delicious treats are much too high in calories, fat, carbs and sugar. Make these healthy versions in under 20 minutes instead! These 5 body-friendly recipes are big on taste, but low in calories, fat, carbs, sugar and guilt!


Before You Begin:

Step 1: Buy an Ice Cream Machine. I got mine at the rainforest place for ~$50 here. Best thing money can buy. I use mine ALL the time except when I don’t use it.

Step 2: Watch my “How to Use an Ice Cream Machine Tootorial Video” or just read my instructions here.

  • 1 scoop of BSN ISOBURN Whey (Strawberry Milkshake Flavour)

2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Blizzard!

My healthy chocolate soft serve blizzard is topped with Quest Cravings Protein Peanut Butter Cups and nuggets of Quest’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars. These little Quest gems raise this creamy treat to a whole new level of guilt-free decadence.


Recipe:

My chocolate protein soft serve has a secret ingredient. Shhh! It’s like a government secret!

Guess what the secret ingredient is???? ZUCCHINI! I swear you cannot taste the zucchini. Zucchini is the best thing since indoor plumbing, the number 36, electric toothbrushes, vegetarian steakhouses, Klingon, the internet, the word “booyah”, and books that teach you how to read. However, if you can’t read, then you can’t learn from books, so you can’t learn to read by reading a book that tells how to read.

Blend the following in a blender:

  • 1 Scoop of BSN ISOBURN Whey (Chocolate Milkshake Flavour)
  • 2 TBSP Walden Farms Pancake Syrup (Calorie Free)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond (or cashew) milk
  • Peel the skin off a raw zucchini. Add 3/4 cup of chopped raw zucchini.

Ensure the zucchini is completely pureed.

Pour this mixture into your ice cream machine for 10-15 minutes

While you are waiting:


Serve in a cup and drizzle with 2 TBSP Walden Farms Sugar Free/Calorie Free Pancake Syrup  (this is optional, but it tastes delicious) and add your Quest pieces.
