We’ve got a little “designer” chat today. I wish I could say I was a cool designer, or somewhat fashionable, but I’m not going to pretend. Fashion is obviously not something I know much about, unless matching compression socks and running shoes is is considered “fashion”. Ha.
But, I do know I’ve been loving some Designer Whey products lately.
I was recently sent a box of protein packed goodies from Designer Whey.
I got into their protein bars pretty darn quickly.
They come in three flavors: Chocolate Caramel Crunch, Peanut Butter Crunch and Triple Chocolate Crunch.
I usually prefer protein bars that are less than 200 calories and under 10 grams of fat. These are just that at 160 calories and 5 grams of fat.
Obviously I had to try the Peanut Butter Crunch flavor first.
Um, yeah, it didn’t disappoint.
It also didn’t make my stomach upset which some protein bars do, so it was instantly a winner.
The past week or so I’ve make my way through all the different flavors of these new protein bars.
They’re the perfect little protein packed snack in between meals or on the go.
They’re are even tasty enough to be eaten as a dessert.
I’m already a fan, but a little disappointed that I only have one left out of the samples I was sent. I like all the flavors, but if you really want to feel like you’re eating a candy bar I’d say go with the Chocolate Caramel Crunch.
I also got two flavors of Designer Whey protein powder to try.
Yeah, you see that? They have a White Chocolate flavor. Pretty awesome. They actually have a really great variety of all sorts of protein powder flavors.
You know what else is awesome? One serving has just 100 calories and 18 grams of good for you protein.
The first thing I did with this was make my protein frosting.
White Chocolate Protein Frosting
1/2-1 scoop Designer Whey White Chocolate protein powder (14-28 grams)
1-2 tablespoons sugar free maple syrup or agave
You can adjust the amount of sugar free syrup or agave you add depending on the thickness you want.
May I just say that it goes fabulously on sweet roasted kabocha squash?
Want to know what other white chocolate protein goodness I created that goes fabulously on squash?
Some white chocolate protein cookie dough of course.
White Chocolate Protein Cookie Dough
1 scoop Designer Whey white chocolate protein powder (28 grams)
2 tablespoon coconut flour
pinch of baking powder or baking soda
splash of vanilla
1-2 non calorie sweetener packet (or 1-2 teaspoons sugar)
1-2 tablespoons milk of choice
Mix all ingredients together adding milk a little bit at a time last. Add just enough milk to get desired consistency. Chill (or eat right away if you can’t wait).
Oh, this is decadent. I like it to be a little gooey so it’s more like cookie dough rather than the cake batter cookie dough crumble. It really is that good. I mean, what can be better than protein cookie dough?
Oh, yes, of course, the combination of protein dough and sweet kabocha squash.
Ha ha ha. So much for promising not to show you squash pictures for a couple days.
I also created this dark chocolate raspberry protein smoothie that is featured on the Designer Whey website.
You can check out the recipe here.
One final thing before I go.
Since I really wish you all could’ve been at the Sweaty Sunday workout this past weekend, I thought I’d share the exact workout I taught with you. That way we can pretend we all work out together. He he.
Here you go. Just a little high intensity workout to blast some serious calories.
Try it. It’s a good one! Then have some protein dough.
Next time I’ll get a video to go with the workout. The boys have been wanting to make one anyway. He he.
Have a great day!
What do you prefer more- protein bars or protein powders to make up your own treats?
What’s you favorite flavor?
