Chocolate Covered Ice cream Protein Bars – Monique


ice cream bar

As soon as I read about the challenge I knew what I wanted to make and well… honestly I couldn’t resist to head to the kitchen straight away. No matter what the result of this, I just really really hope that you will try this recipe for once because I promise you these bars are EXTREMELY delicious (it was pretty hard to take just one bite so I could take a picture and not just devour the whole damn thing!).

Ingredients for the Banana Layer

25 grams of regular oats
200 grams of frozen banana
25 grams of casein (vanilla)
30 milliliters of water

Ingredients for the Strawberry Layer

25 grams of regular oats
200 grams of frozen strawberries
25 grams of casein (vanilla)
30 milliliters of water

Ingredients for the Chocolate Topping

200 grams of dark chocolate

Directions

1. Ground ALL the oats until you have a rather fine oatmeal. Divide these in two equal amounts of oats, so you have 25 grams for both layers.

2. Mix 25 grams of the oats, the frozen bananas, casein and the water until it resembles a smooth ice cream. Add the first layer of ice cream (evenly) to a baking dish and put in the freezer while you prepare your strawberry layer.

3. Mix (the left-over) 25 grams of oats, the frozen strawberries, casein and the water just like you did with the banana ice cream (steps 2 and 3 are interchangeably).

4. When it has become a smooth ice cream add the second layer to the baking dish and put it back in the freezer for an hour so it can freeze well enough. (You can prepare the ice cream the night before so it’s frozen solid but make sure you cut it into bars before it has become rock hard). TRY not to dig into the ice cream already, I know it’s really good by itself but I promise you it will get even better!

5. Melt the dark chocolate in a pan above a pot/pan of lightly boiling water or in a microwave.

6. Dip the ice cream bars in the chocolate and let the bars rest for a while in the freezer or eat them straight away if you can’t control yourself any longer.

7.  Dip the ice cream bars in the chocolate and let the bars rest for a while.
