Question: Why is this Chocolate Brownie Chunks Protein Ice Cream so amazing?


Answer:

  • Umm...look at it! DROOL. Brownie chunks in a creamy chocolate soft serve!

  • Low carb and low sugar (perfect for diabetics)

  • Only requires 20 minutes to make and 4 ingredients

  • It's high in protein. More specifically, it's high in casein protein. Casein protein digests SLOWLY, providing a slow-release amino stream for an 8 hour period.  This means it can be used to help repair muscle and prevent muscle breakdown while you sleep for 8 hours.  Therefore, the optimal time to take it would be before bed.

  • It prevents you from cheating on your healthy diet with something that will spike your insulin (thereby interfering with your fat burning attempts) and contribute to dental decay (I had to say that last one because I'm a dentist).

Cooking Instructions


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  • 1 scoop of Bodybuilding.com 100% Casein - Chocolate

  • 1/4 tsp of gluten-free xanthan gum. (it's a thickening agent)

  • Quest Nutrition Bar: Chocolate Brownie

Directions:

  1. Make sure you watch my Video TOOTorial on how to use an ice cream machine.

  2. Add the almond milk, Caesin and xantham gum to a Magic Bullet (Optional: If you want your ice cream to be creamy, then also add 1/4 tsp of Guar Gum - I didn't bother with the guar gum because I didn't have any in my pantry, so there).

  3. Remove your ice cream bowl from the freezer (you are supposed to keep it in the freezer all the time... and at least for 24 hours before the first time you use it. Yeah, I was pretty angry about waiting 24 hours the first time too). Set the bowl onto your ice cream stand and assemble the ice cream maker according to the directions.

  4. Turn the Ice Cream Maker to the ON position.

  5. Pour your mixture into the spinning ice cream bowl. Try not to become hypnotized by the swirling future ice cream.

  6. Set the timer for 20 minutes.

  7. While you are waiting, make the "Moist Chunks of Brownie". Don't worry Betty Crocker, it's easier than 2 + 2.

  8. Get a Quest Nutrition Bar: Chocolate Brownie, open the package and cut it in half.

  9. You only need to use half (save the other half for one of those moments when you're so hungry you could eat your elbows).

  10. Use scissors to cut the Quest bar into "tiny little chewy brownie pieces".

  11. When there are only 5 minutes remaining on your timer, add the brownie pieces to your ice cream maker. Because I'm fancy, I like to save a few brownie pieces with which I garnish my ice cream after having scooped it into an elegant dish. Also, because I'm fancy, I did not end that prior sentence with a preposition, since that is something up with which I will not put.

  12. Now that you've scooped your ice cream into a dish & garnished it with "brownie chunks", it's time to eat it! But no need to worry because the brownie chunks in this ice cream don't go into your guilt chamber. No siree bob. It's so high in fiber, it just passes right through you like fiberrhea.

  13. Enjoy!

NOTE: If you are allergic to casein protein, then substitute with whey protein. If you are lactose-intolerant, then purchase a whey protein isolate that is labelled 100% lactose-free.
