Tell me this doesn’t bring you back to your childhood:
Cinnamon rolls were always a special treat in my house. It was some pretty exciting business, I remember. I get a bit of a sugar headache just thinking about it now, ha ha.
It was time to try a new protein powder and when I came across Dymatize’s new casein flavor, I couldn’t resist.
Upon opening the container, my kitchen transformed into a total bakery smell. No need for candles or Glade plug-ins…I’ve got protein to make my house smell good!
First I tried making a night time dessert with it.
Experiment 1: The Sludge
- 1 scoop Dymatize Casein cinnamon bun
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- dash of almond milk, added if needed after mixing yogurt + protein first
- healthy chocolate sauce
- peanut butter
I put the base in the freezer for about an hour, then took it out and put my toppings on.
One word: Ahhhhh!
I was eating cinnamon roll icing soft serve. It was rich, creamy, and decadent. I’m in love. I like casein protein because of the thick texture it has, making it perfect for making healthy desserts with.
Experiment 2: Pancakes
Don’t mind the green, you know me and my love affair with spinach!
- 1 scoop Dymatize casein cinnamon bun
- 3 large egg whites
- 1/2 cup (40 grams) oat flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- handful of spinach
- dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
Blend your oats in a food processor (my magic bullet works great for this), then combine all dry ingredients. Blend up your egg whites, almond milk, vanilla extract, and spinach. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Let set in a bowl while your pan heats up on the stove. Then cook up those little cakes of heaven.
Eat straight up because they taste that darn good all on their own OR layer on some toppings. I am a 100% dipper girl when it comes to pancakes, so I got those ready to go:
sugar free maple syrup and that delicious coconut peanut butter
I am very impressed with this protein powder and am excited to have it to play with some more! I want my diet to be mostly whole and real foods, but a little protein powder is perfectly fine in my eyes. It makes things fun.
What is your favorite protein powder?
