My Post-Ride Treat – Pimped Healthy Ice Cream

The Healthy Wheyhey Protein Ice CreamAfter a 45K bike ride during super-sunny and extremely hot Sunday I really needed something sweet, cold, tasty… but healthy. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the Wheyhey protein ice cream as it’s really everywhere.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, I guess you must have been blind and/or deaf as it was everywhere, the Wheyhey protein ice cream:

  • has 123 calories but no sugar which is apparently due to a natural sweetener, Xylitol
  • has as much protein as a 70 gram chicken breast (LOL)
  • comes in three flavors – chocolate, vanilla and strawberry
  • it’s gluten free!
  • it tastes good but it’s a lil’ bit pricey! A 150ml tiny pot will cost you £2.69 (if you have a GNC gold card it will be a bit cheaper 🙂
  • it does not make you skinny! If you go for Whehey protein ice cream instead of Ben & Jerry’s you will make a good choice.

My Post-Ride Treat - Pimped Healthy Protein Ice CreamWell, as a frequent Holland & Barrett-er and GNC-er I’ve come across it too and supplied myself with chocolate and vanilla versions (best choice ever). Although I find the portion to be very tiny; 150ml pot of ice cream is really not enough for me especially after a proper sweaty workout. I hope Wheyhey will come up with some bigger options too (please!).

Well, I decided to pimp the ice cream a little bit and I added berries, cocoa powder and cinnamon….Total blast…It was better than my usual post-workout protein shake.

If you want to treat yourself to here’s my recipe.
