High Protein Cold Summer Recipes

publication date: Aug 4, 2017

 

 

 

Protein "Ice Cream"

3-4 frozen cauliflower florets 

1/2 cup frozen zucchini, chopped

 

Directions:
1. Chop and freeze zucchini chunks and cauliflower florets.


2. Blend frozen chunks with 1 scoop flavored plant protein powder and about 1/2 cup plant milk to thin (use less liquid more liquid if you want a shake, less liquid if you want an ice cream like consistency)

As long as your protein powder is flavored, I promise you WONT taste any cauliflower or zucchini.

I've made this several times and it so hits the spot on these hot days!

I currently use True Nutrition plant protein powders as you can customize your protein and flavor strength and they are priced very economical
