Each of the ingredients in this healthy dessert has supportive benefits to help you reach your health goals. 

Protein powder is a great source of protein and can help to build and repair muscle tissue

Greek yogurt is also a good source of protein and is packed with probiotics, which are beneficial for gut health. 

Almond milk is a good alternative to cow’s milk and is lower in calories. It’s also a good source of vitamin E which is an antioxidant that can help to protect cells from damage.

Depending on the high-protein cookie that you choose, you can pack in some extra fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and of course, protein.

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Protein Powder: Vanilla whey protein powder is used as a great source of protein in this recipe. It can be substituted with other flavors or types (plant-based, collagen, etc) protein powder
  • Greek Yogurt: I recommend using nonfat plain or unsweetened vanilla Greek yogurt for this recipe. 
  • Vanilla Extract:  Vanilla extract adds a little more flavor to this recipe, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute it with other flavors like almond extract or peppermint extract.
  • Protein Cookies: I used these high-protein cookies from my local supermarket, but you can use any type of high-protein cookie that you like. Just make sure it’s low in added sugar and has at least 7 g of protein per cookie. You can usually find them in the health food aisle at your local grocery store.

Customizations 

For higher calories 

If you’re looking to increase the calories in this recipe, you can do so by adding more protein powder or using higher-fat milk like whole milk (or try one of these high fat calorie milk alternatives). 

You could also add some nut butter or chocolate chips to the mixture before freezing.

For lower calories

To reduce calories, you can use one protein cookie and make a half sandwich by splitting it or have an “open-faced” ice cream sandwich. You can also ensure that you use nonfat Greek yogurt.

Other customizations

If you want to make these ice cream sandwiches even more fun, try adding some sprinkles or chocolate chips to the mixture before freezing. 

You could also use different flavors of protein powder or cookies to mix things up. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, you could try making your own protein cookies!
