February 29, 2020


– Hey guys, and welcome back to the FFFHQ where today I have three different recipes that use protein powder for you, and they’re all inspired
by your favorite dessert. Make sure you hit that subscribe button so you don’t miss the
recipes every single week, and now we’re ready to dive in. So number one is one of my favorites, and it’s one of my go-to breakfasts. We’re gonna make some
cinnamon roll protein oatmeal. So we’re gonna make our oatmeal base, we have a half a cup of
rolled old fashion oats. You can use gluten-free if needed. And then we have two
tablespoons of Truvia, or you can use your sweetener of choice. Just wanna mix those together, and then we have one cup of water, you always wanna use about
double the amount of water that you have oats. And a quarter of a teaspoon
of vanilla extract. (lighthearted music) You wanna turn your stove on to high heat, and bring it to a boil. So once it’s boiling,
you’re gonna let it cook for about four or five minutes
stirring pretty frequently until it’s nice and thick and creamy. So once your oats are
nice and creamy and thick, it’s time to take ’em off the heat. So this, you wanna put
it into a bowl to cool while we finish making the
cinnamon roll filling topping. So now we’re ready to make that protein swirly cinnamon goodness,
so we have two tablespoons of vanilla protein powder
of choice, I’m using whey. Then we have some coconut
sugar which is like a natural version of brown sugar,
so you can totally use brown sugar if that’s all you have, and then some cinnamon, and then just stir it together. So now we have to thin
it out with some water, and the amount of water you use is really gonna depend
on your protein powder. I typically use about four
to five teaspoons of water, so you wanna probably
add about three or four, and then stir, and see where you’re at. And you may need to use more than me, or even a little bit less. But you kinda wanna go for like a wet, but kind of spreadable consistency, almost kind of like a little
bit thicker peanut butter. (lighthearted music) Now we’re gonna be super fancy, and we’re gonna put our filling into this parchment paper bag so we can swirl it on top, but you totally don’t need to do this, you can just mix it
in, it tastes the same, but this is if you just
want some pretty oats. So you just wanna scoop
that nice cinnamon paste, that’s the only word to describe it, into your parchment paper bag. The tip’s cut off so that we
can make it nice and swirly. So what’s a good cinnamon roll without some cream cheese frosting? So we’re not really gonna make frosting, but we are gonna make a little bit of a cream cheese topping. So we have a tablespoon of
reduced fats cream cheese softened to room temperature. Then you wanna use an eighth
of a teaspoon of vanilla, or a little bit more. And then we’re gonna sweeten it to taste, I usually use about a teaspoon
to two teaspoons of Truvia, and then just mix it together. So we’re gonna be fancy again which again, you don’t have to do, and scoop your cream cheese frosting into the parchment paper bag. And make sure there’s a
tip cut off at the end. And then just pipe it over top exactly like you’re frosting a cinnamon roll. (lighthearted music) Cinnamon roll protein oatmeal is ready for you to have for breakfast, and now we’re ready to move on to some protein powder cookie dough. So because protein powder cookie dough, we have five tablespoons
of vanilla protein powder, I’m using whey, and that should be about 30 grams or so. Every protein powder
weighs something different, so I do find it helpful to
weigh your protein powder. And then you have a
tablespoon of coconut flower, and just a pinch of salt, and whisk it all together. And then we have some
unsweetened apple sauce, this gives it a really good
soft cookie dough texture. About one teaspoon of
unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Again, this is gonna depend
on your protein powder, like the cinnamon roll protein oatmeal. So you kinda just wanna add and go, and mix as you add. So you kinda want it to
be not nice and soft, but not liquid-y. We’re going for a texture of cookie dough. (lighthearted music) So optional, but recommended
is a quarter teaspoon of natural butter extract, it does really give it that buttery flavor that we expect from cookie dough. If you don’t have it,
you don’t have to use it, but it really will change
the texture and the taste. So as you can see, this has got
a nice cookie dough texture. So I wanna add in some
chocolate chips because always, and then stir in. (lighthearted music) Protein packed cookie
dough is ready for you, and now we’re ready to make a mint chocolate chip protein shake. (lighthearted music) So we’re pretty much
just gonna put everything into a blender. So that’s gonna be about a
quarter of a cup of avocado which is about half a large
avocado, and make sure it’s nice and soft, or it’s hard to blend. And a quarter of a cup of
2% vanilla Greek yogurt, it’s better when you have
a little bit of the fat, you can use fat-free, but again, flavor. We have half a cup of packed kale which I promise you cannot taste, it just gives it that
really nice green color like we have to have for a
mint chocolate chip smoothie. Little bit of agave, you can
use honey too, both work. And a quarter cup of
vanilla protein powder which makes it really creamy and thick, also gives it some nice protein to keep it nice and filling. Then we have some unsweetened
vanilla almond milk, a quarter teaspoon of
mint extract of course for the minty goodness, and then half a cup of crushed ice, and then we’re just gonna
blend it all together. (blender whirring) So for 15 seconds, it’s
not gonna be fully blended, but then you wanna add
in your chocolate chips, and completely blend until it’s
nice and creamy and smooth. (blender whirring) (lighthearted music) Three different ways to use protein powder all inspired by your favorite desserts, and perfect for breakfast or snacks. Which one would you try first? Please leave a comment
