Frozen Egg Whites

Are you looking for some additional protein in your daily life? Do you work out early in the morning and need some pre-fueling the night before? Do you need a little treat at night when your belly is telling you to root through the cupboards and eat everything in sight? 

What this is not. This is not a substitute for a real dessert craving. But it beats eating a can of tuna or a chicken breast at 9pm at night. It has been a real winner for me as I find it has been giving me just that little bit of kick I need at 6am when I am out running. 

The entire recipe gives you around 25 grams of protein for less than 150 calories. I can't eat the whole thing so I usually split into two portions (70 calories each). I make up a few batches on Sunday nights, but you could make 3-4 hours before you want to eat it as well. 

In this version, I took out of freezer added in some yogurt and xanthan gum for a smoothly ice cream finish!

Ingredients: 



  • Egg whites - from a carton, must be pasteurized - 3/4 cup
  • Dash of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 truvia packet
  • 1 tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Cinnamon, dash
  • Optional: banana or berries


Directions:  



  • Put everything in a blender and blend for around 45 seconds
  • Pour into desired freezer friendly containers



  • Freeze for 3-4 hours
  • I usually take it out of the freezer around 20 minutes before trying to eat


Toppings:


  • Peanut butter


  • Yogurt


There you have it. A frozen protein treat. The pictures aren't pretty, but not everything is magazine friendly. Let me know if you make it and what variations you come up with!

Thanks for the options! I'm sure there are tons. The other night I did some sliced bananas, melted peanut butter and some cinnamon. I was in heaven.
