Chocolate Protein Ice Cream

Posted in Dessert, Snacks tagged , , , , , , at 4:26 pm by realityishealthy

I’m back at home in my own apartment again, and seem to have lost my entire social life to my bachelor thesis. Sounds like a good time, right? Well… Not so much. But the plus side is that this is the last thing I need to complete before I have a bachelor degree in computer engineering. Yippee!

On a different note, not sure if other places in the world had to change their clocks this morning, but in Europe we had to spring forward one hour. Let me tell you, waking up to workout this morning was so much harder than normal. I really could have used the extra hour of sleep, but after I got to the gym I felt awesome.

Afterwards, I decided that I would treat myself a little with a healthy protein snack after my workout. I decided to make chocolate protein ice cream. I was in chocolate protein heaven while eating this. It seriously tasted like a fudgesicle, only better! This would not have been possible if not for the amazing website iherb.com. I just got my new package with my chocolate protein powder, and my stevia powder. Remember, if you want $5-$10 off used the coupon code ZUG220 at checkout. Anyways, here’s the recipe:

Chocolate Protein Ice Cream

Ingredients:

Plain Greek yogurt (mine was a 300g container)

1 scoop Chocolate protein powder (I used ChocoRite)

2 pinches of stevia

Instructions:

Makes three servings.

This may be pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll go through the motions anyways. Just put your scoop of protein powder into the yogurt, and mix until fully combined. Then add stevia to taste. I ended up using about two pinches. Now, if you don’t have chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder works as well, and powder sugar or splenda can replace the stevia. After getting the desired taste, put in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Take out and stir, and put in the freezer for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this part until you get the desired consistency. The more often you stir it will help avoid icing and keep it creamy. I did this only twice because I was really impatient to enjoy it. Hehe. Either way, it was one of the best after workout snacks I’ve come up with!

Reality is Healthy

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , at 4:42 pm by realityishealthy

‘Reality is Healthy’ is my new health and food blog!

I’m really excited to get to share my food and kitchen experiences with others, and see how others adapt the same recipes I use to make new and different meals! Now and again I will also throw in some posts of workouts that I love, and what I find most effective.

First, I would like to pimp out a website that I use very often, and I swear by it. Its called iherb.com. This website has tons of different ingredients that can be used to make eating clean easier and even more delish. Its the perfect website for people who live in the US (free shipping on orders over $20) or people living in other countries ($6 dollar shipping on orders under 4lbs). I love this website because where I live (Norway) eating healthy can be VERY expensive. iherb also allows me to buy things that have yet to come to my country yet (stevia: i love you).

For people who have never used the website before, you can use this code, ZUG220, when you checkout to get a $5 dollar discount ($8 in March only!) on your first order. Unfortunately, if you have already used iherb, the discount cannot be used, it is only for new accounts (think smart here). I repeat, the code is ZUG220.

I hope you guys enjoy my blog! And I would very much like to read other health blogs, so recommend away 😀
