One of my favorite things about summer has always been ice cream. I just don’t think summer would be summer without it. When I went dairy-free that meant no more ice cream, or so I thought… then I discovered nice cream. Not only does it look, feel and taste like ice cream- it’s healthy ice cream you can make at home! Fist pump
You may have noticed that I have a few nice cream recipes on my blog, so clearly I have a slight obsession, sorry, not sorry 😉 But perhaps my little secret about nice cream isn’t just the fact it’s made with frozen fruit, but I like to add protein powder in mine too! EVEN.BETTER! So today I bring you a delicious Cherry Pie PROTEIN Nice Cream featuring Orgain Organic Vanilla Bean Protein Powder! With Orgain, I can power my summer in a healthy way and also spend as much time outside doing the things I love with my family.

They key to Nice Cream is getting the consistency right. You have to add just the right amount of almond milk or then it becomes more like a smoothie. I find that adding protein powder to my nice creams helps to make that consistency more like ice cream while adding some protein to my diet. I call that a win-win! And Orgain protein was perfect in this recipe! This organic plant-based protein powder is so great because it has such a smooth consistency and delicious flavor (which makes it easy to add into your recipes without it tasting “chalky”!) Orgain has 21g of organic, plant-based protein that is gluten-free, soy free, dairy free, non-GMO and is the convenient, ready to drink nutrition you need.
Of course you can enjoy the protein powder on its own and shake it up with some almond milk- easy peasy, but I am someone who likes to switch things up a bit. And guess what?! Nice cream takes less than ten minutes to make (as long as you freeze your fruit the night before). So this is extra good news because my husband and I are in the process of building a deck this summer! We need quick + easy options that fuel our days and keep us cool- so these Cherry Pie Protein Nice Cream Sundaes could not be any more perfect.
Ok, so maybe I was doing more watching my hubby build our deck than actually building… you caught me, haha. I did help out with little things, but regardless, Orgain protein is so perfect to help him stay hydrated and fueled while he works. And hey- he’s pretty lucky to have such yummy healthy treats to keep him cool on little work breaks too!
These Cherry Pie Protein Nice Cream Sundaes are gluten-free (as always), vegan and they only require 6-7 ingredients (depending on if you want to include the granola and coconut whipped topping) and are ready to scarf down in 10 minutes! Let’s take a peek at what all is in these delicious sundaes, shall we?
☆ Orgain Vanilla Bean Organic Protein Powder

These sundaes are best if eaten right away, but you may freeze for later.

I totally urge you to check out Orgain on your next Target run (and don’t forget about the great deal mentioned above!) Until next time,
