Bed time snack – Protein Ice Cream

This simple recipe makes an amazing snack perfect before bed as it contain slow releasing protein (cottage cheese), easy absorbent protein (whey protein) and healthy fats (almonds and peanut butter). Just like my Protein Pancake recipe all ingredients can be adjusted or taken out providing it fits within your daily macronutrients. For example I’m currently eating and training for lean mass, but for someone that’s dieting to lose body fat they’d probably want to take out or lower the amount of the almonds or peanut butter within the recipe.

Prep time- 10 minutes
Setting time- 30-60 minutes

10g-12g Almonds
200g Natural Cottage Cheese
1 tbsp Peanut Butter
80ml Almond milk
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 scoop Whey Protein
1 tbsp Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa

First thing to do is blend up the almonds, I personally don’t like to blend them too finely as I prefer them still chunky. Then add 200g of low fat/no fat cottage cheese, peanut butter, whey protein, Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa, cinnamon and almond milk.

Blend until everything is mixed and you’re left with a nice think consistency (you may need to give it a few blends then scrape any peanut butter or whey protein off the sides-make sure the power to the blender is SWITCHED OFF before you stick a spoon in it). Next just simply pour into a bowl, cover with kitchen foil and put it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes (30mins for protein mousse or 60mins for protein ice cream).
