(Not a dietitian, not a health instructor, retired lawyer+health enthusiast here, I do my research before anything I do, because I have a lot of free time , and in my opinion this is the best way to use it).
Want to pack 40 grams of protein in one yummy meal?
Have a sweet tooth and can’t have enough ice cream ?
Want to feel satiated until dinner time ?
Care enough about animals and the environment to adopt some vegan meals into your diet?
Starting to feel as if you were approached by a salesman from the 90’s?
Yes- that was a bit aggressive on the marketing point -but I really think this a keeper, and can’t be happier to share it with you.
I used the Myfitnesspal app to check the exact macros and nutrients:
These are the ingredients:
In a bowl-the same bowl you intend to eat of -no need to mess more dishes than absolutely necessary in my opinion- mix the home made ground oatmeal (2 tbsp), ground flax seeds ( no way you are going to digest whole flax seeds. you have to grind them first-use any high powered blender -( I love my Vitamix but have no shares in their company nor affiliated nothing so use whatever), chia seeds, and oat bran-for the fiber.
In that Vita-mix- or a sturdy hand blender- put a frozen banana-yep it has to be frozen otherwise no ice cream- berries, a little soy milk , 1/3 cup cold water and a scoop of vegan (….) protein powder. blend till ice cream. pour to bowl to meet the dry ingredients.
Again- using Myfitnesspal to break down the exact ingredients and their caloric intake:
Maybe it seems that this is a lot of calories for one “ice cream”- but- this ain’t no regular ice cream people.
THIS HERE IS A PROPER NUTRITIOUS HEALTHY FILLING POST WORK-OUT MEAL, CONTAINING NOT ONLY 70% OF MY DAILY PROTEIN INTAKE, BUT ALSO A LOT OF FIBER AND VITAMINS.
Plus- and this is a huge plus – it is so tasty and cool and satisfying and covers any sweet craving you might have- what else can a person want?
Enjoy- the cooliflower.
