RECIPE 1

Fudge Brownie Protein Bars

Preheat the oven to 300 F. Combine all ingredients in a high-quality food processor, and blend until absolutely and completely smooth. (A blender works if you absolutely must, but the texture and taste will be much better in a food processor.) Pour into a greased (using coconut oil) 8×8 square pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. Cook the homemade chocolate protein bars about 30 minutes. They will still look underdone when you take them from the oven, but this is okay. Let cool, then pat down with a pancake spatula. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Makes about 10 bars.

RECIPE 2


Simple No-Churn Vanilla Choc Chip Ice Cream

  • 2 1/2 cups organic (ideally grass-fed) whipping cream 

  • 1 (14-0z) can organic coconut condensed milk 

  • 1 vanilla bean pod

  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract

  • Dash Redmond's Real salt (optional) 

  • Dark chocolate chips, chopped (optional) (we used Pascha brand)

Using a whisk, firmly whip the whip cream in a glass bowl until it starts to firm up and form peaks, approximately 3-4 minutes. Stir in the coconut condensed milk and stir to combine. Cut open the vanilla bean pod and gently scrape out the black vanilla seeds. Mix the vanilla bean seeds, vanilla extract, and salt (if using) into the cream mixture. Lastly, stir in the chopped chocolate chunks, if using. Pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan and place in freezer. Allow to completely freeze, which takes approximately 6 hours. Enjoy!

Many people are very confused about the different types of whey protein supplements sold in the market today. To clarify this confusion, we thought it would be useful to explain the difference between the three. We will also address something about quality and processing. We will go further into these important issues in another blog post.
