What inspired this Cookie Dough Protein Blizzard recipe
If I haven’t already mentioned it 10,000 times, I started grad school this fall. While I LOVE being in school (aging makes you appreciate it I guess), I have found it so hard to share the things I’ve been eating on the blog!
I do bring my lunch 2-3 times per week, so I shared a few of those healthy, low calorie lunch ideas on this post, but as far as making new recipes, I’m just not in a space of creativity!
That was until I bought a recent “limited time” cookie dough Built bar, and thought about how delicious it would taste in some protein ice cream.
If you don’t already know, my favorite protein bar of all time is Built Bars. (You can read that and get my coupon code here). I like them because they taste good, they have a good amount of protein, AND they are low in calories.
I spent months looking for a protein bar that was under 200 calories. There really aren’t that many! (at least not that were a full candy bar size).
So, once I found Built bars, I was hooked. The only problem is, they do these ‘limited’ flavors, and my favorite bar is never on sale. (white chocolate birthday cake and white chocolate raspberry cheesecake).
But, I also love the Built bar cookie dough, and recently, they released it – FOR A LIMITED TIME.
So, if you can find the cookie dough bar, (check their store here) that’s awesome. If you can’t and still want a cookie dough protein blizzard, other low calorie options could be:
- Pure Protein bar (180 calories)
- Quest Cookie dough bar (200 calories)
- Zone Cookie Dough Bar (180 calories)
What if you don’t have a cookie dough protein bar?
I have a recipe for protein cookie dough here! You could mix that up, chop it into chunks, and stir it into your protein ice cream!!
How to make a protein ice cream blizzard
An ice cream blizzard is soft serve ice cream (almost as soft as a milk shake, but not quite), but with mixed in candy, candy bars, or fruit.
So, using my FAVORITE protein ice cream (blended protein powder plus frozen bananas), I chopped up a cookie dough protein bar and stirred it in.
So easy, and so perfect at the same time!
Give this a try, and if you like it- LET ME KNOW!
