Recipe: Guilt-Free & High Protein Cookie Dough


The first time I had protein powder after the gym (about 3 years ago) I could hardly get it down. Mixed with only water, it really wasn't delicious at all and didn't have the creamy consistency described on the package. Since then, I have constantly been trying to find different ways to make protein powder taste better - no matter as a shake or a treat.

In the past, I have added different fruits, Greek yogurt, peanut butter and even cottage cheese (not my best moment!). Now, I usually mix my powder with half water/half almond milk, a banana and some cinnamon for my go-to shake - which is creamy and tasty. I still like to try different recipes, especially when the results are calorie-friendly and protein-packed treats.

My current favorite? High-protein cookie dough! I found this recipe a while ago but haven't had the time to try it until beginning of March. I do love cookie dough (who doesn't?) and this treat is delicious by itself, frozen or spread on rice-cakes (this is usually what I do with left overs - if I have any. You will have to add a tiny bit more almond milk to make it creamier and more spreadable).
