I recently saw a movie, where Batman uses a dehydrator to shrink food in size. He says this allows him to eat high calorie and nutrient filled meals on the go. Well, that is an idea. Here is a simpler way for you to have a quick, filling and nutritious meal – Whey Protein Crepes.

You can whip up these high protein delicacies in minutes. And they are very filling (we know 😉 ). So you will be having a healthy meal that will make your mother happy. Also, a few tweaks here and there and you have added your own flavour to these whey protein crepes.

I recently made these for breakfast on Sunday and boy did they vanish from the plates! We are more into savoury breakfasts, like poha, dosa, upma etc. But these whey protein crepes were a pleasant change and are something we can have on a regular basis.

The whey protein powder I used is unflavoured, so you can also make savory whey protein crepes, or simple crepes to go with a quick stir-fry, like mushroom and baby corn or french beans and onion (these two happen to be my favourites!)

What surprised me when I first started using whey protein powder is that it is not just useful for athletes and fitness enthusiasts but can also be used for weight loss. When paired with fruits and/or milk (dairy, coconut, almond, soy) to make smoothies (recipes coming soon!), it is very filling and can aid in weight loss, with exercise and some self-discipline 🙂

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Ice cream is the go to dessert in our home – rain, hail or shine! But the store bought flavours get monotonous after a while. Well, that happened and I decided to experiment with whey protein ice cream. I wanted to get some superfood goodness while also indulging my sweet tooth.

This recipe requires about 75 gram of whey protein powder, so you get approximately 59 gram of protein. That is if you eat all the ice cream in one sitting ;). If you are working out and want to have your protein in a different way, then this is the whey for you (see what I did there?!). If your kid is a picky eater, then just add his/her favorite fruits, nuts and seeds to this whey protein ice cream.

Since the whey protein powder I used is unflavoured, it doesn’t alter the original taste that the fruits render to this frozen dessert. Besides, it is free of any preservatives, fillers or thickeners. I was free to add any flavours that I could think of, but I decided to go with vanilla, because…baby steps! The ice cream turned out great. We managed to lick the blender clean after the ice cream went to the freezer to set.

Here I have tried whey protein ice cream with banana and whey protein ice cream with strawberries. You can try it with any fruits of your choice. We would love to hear how yours turned out 🙂 (Psst.. I am going to try chocolate ice cream next!)

Fun fact: It is said that it takes 50 licks to finish a single scoop of ice cream. Let’s go find out!
