Guest Post! Protein Ice Cream from Heather of Heather Eats Almond Butter!

Heather from Heather Eats Almond Butter here, or HEAB for short. Both Deb and I are fans of creating lower calorie versions of decadent desserts. Well, back in the day, I made countless trips to Dairy Queen for some of my favorite desserts, which were definitely NOT low calorie, and to this day, I still crave a good DQ fix. So, I hope all of you enjoy the following lower calorie version of a DQ classic as much as I did.

Dairy Queen's Peanut Buster Parfait

Ingredients: Dairy Queen soft serve, peanuts, hot fudge sauce.

Ingredients: Chocolate protein ice cream (made with unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze and 1 scoop chocolate Sun Warrior rice protein powder), 1/2 ounce roasted salted peanuts, 1 large banana, and chocolate syrup (1/2 TBSP maple syrup mixed with 1 heaping tsp cocoa powder).

You're welcome. :)

Heabs, you've inspired me to recreate something from Cold Stone Creamery! But first, I should probably dip in at Coldstone for a real life comparison, no?
