Why we love the high protein
High-protein recipes are very popular amongst the health world and for good reason! Protein is a powerhouse macronutrient and is responsible for a bunch of body processes:
- muscle maintenance and growth
- enzyme and hormone production
- transportation and storage of nutrients
- recovery and muscle soreness
- satiety and weight management
Though the majority of the population is lacking in their protein intake. Eating protein shakes in the form of ice cream is much more fun. After all, food is not only fuel but is also meant to be enjoyed!
Why you need a Ninja Creami
You just do. ok.
In all seriousness, I’m not the type to buy gadgets that crowd my already limited counter space. However, I have been getting good use out of my ninja creami ever since I bought it. Now, I take pride in having that cumbersome contraption on my countertop.
Ill admit, it is loud. The spinning process of the ninja creami is quite loud so to muffle the sound I throw a blanket over it until it’s finished. Not the best way, but it gets the job done especially if you live in an apartment with thin walls.
“Healthy Desserts” VS “Unhealthy Desserts”
As a coach and personally struggling with eating disorders in the past, the last thing I want you to do is view these recipes as a way of restricting. Im all for modifying foods to make them more macro friendly but there is a line. If you cross this line, It may be time to take a look at your relationship with food and your body.
- You cant eat full-fat ice cream because you are scared of the calories
- Eating pints of protein ice cream in replacement of meals
- Never deviate from your “safe” recipe
- Not adding fun mix-ins because they add “unnecessary” calories.
Just some habits I notice myself trying not to dip into because I do not want this to be a crutch for my disordered eating thoughts. I want this to be fun for me and for you! Fun entails adding fun mix-ins and full-fat yogurt or milk (which is actually good for your hormones girl) The first step in healing your relationship with food is defining your “why”. Why do you care so much about your outside appearance? Why do you want to heal? To help you find that out for yourself, download the free worksheet below xx

Ninja creami tips and tricks
- Use the “Lite” ice cream setting for the best consistency every damn time!
- Give her a warm water bath before spinning to get rid of the outer ice layer that forms if you don’t give her a bath
- Use whey protein powder for better consistency (10g or more)
- non-fat milk or almond milk sucks, use 2% milk, just a little bit goes a long way for better consistency
