I’ve been playing with my food again.  I have a sick sweet tooth.  I think that I could actually turn salt into sugar if I stared at it long enough.  I don’t deny it or try to hide it but I do try to disguise it. Okay guys, you are about to be introduced to a protein loaded meal dessert camouflaged as a meal.  I call it my Peanut Butter Dream Protein Ice Cream and it is aaaaaamazing!  It has the same consistency as that soft serve ice cream from the DQ and carries with it fond memories of eating ice cream cones on a Sunday afternoon as a child.  I invite you to whip it up and indulge because it is a nutritious, delicious, protein packed, guilt-free dessert, I mean, meal.

Ingredients:
2 Quaker Salt-Free Rice Cakes
1 Scoop Quest Peanut Butter Whey Protein Powder
1 tbsp Salt-Free Almond Butter
1 scoop L-Glutamine Supplement
8 ounces crushed ice
4 ounces water

Take 2 Quaker salt-free rice cakes and crumble them into a bowl.  Sprinkle them with a little magical unsweetened cocoa dust.

In a blender add about 8 ounces of crushed ice and 4 ounces of water.  (After you blend up all ingredients you may need to adjust this if it is too thick by adding just a smidgen more of water.)

In the blender. add 1 scoop of your favorite protein supplement powder (I find that Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder produces the best consistency and is great tasting.)  1 tbsp almond butter (I love the Bare Smooth Unsalted Barney Butter), and 1 scoop of L-Glutamine powdered supplement (I use Body by O sups because they are maple flavored and they are also seriously awesome.)
Blend on high until smooth.  Get a spatula, you’re gonna need it to get every last drop of your ice cream out of the blender.  If you leave any of your protein ice cream in the blender you will have failed this recipe miserably.
Pour your protein ice cream over your cocoa studded rice cakes and sprinkle with a wee bit more unsweetened cocoa dust.  Now, before you dive in, take a photo of that bad boy and post it on this blog!
