Black Forest and Coconut Ice Cream Sandwich

Black Forest and Coconut Ice Cream Sandwich

Angela: A fun playful recipe from our friends at GrowEatRun. Crap free. Full of food fats and protein. Have a treat without the guilt! Over to Victoria with the recipe…

Victoria: We may have watched The LEGO Movie on the weekend – and now in our heads all we can hear is “Everything is Awesome”, which particularly relates to this Black Forest and Coconut Ice Cream Sandwich! If you’ve seen this movie, think of the recipe coming from Cloud Cuckoo Land, a land up in the clouds where there are no rules, no limits, no bushy mustaches, no bedtimes, and no consistency. Reached by traveling up a rainbow, and home to the sweet and plucky Princess Unikitty, Cloud Cuckoo Land is built from every kind of piece using every type of LEGO imagination. I’d like to think that I was channelling Princess Unikitty when I put this recipe together! Anyway – enjoy!

Ingredients

Serves 2 – 4 depending on how hungry and generous you are feeling!

Base

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 heaped tsps of cacao
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

Filling

  • 150ml coconut cream (Ayam is the best brand I’ve found)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or seeds of a vanilla pod
  • 1/3 banana mashed
  • 80g frozen cherries
  • 80g frozen raspberries
  • 1 scoop or 180nutrition Superfood or 2 heaped tbs LSA (linseed, sunflower and almond) – nowhere near as tasty but it’s a pretty good substitute.

Method

Base:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg C and line a 20x20cm tray with baking paper
  • In a bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 1 cup water vigorously
  • Add 1/2 cup coconut flour, cacao and mix to a good batter (may need to add 1/4-1/2 cup more water depending on the coconut flour)
  • Place in a 20×20 tray and cook at 180deg C for 20-25mins
  • When you take this out of the oven it’s going to sink – don’t fret! It is supposed to be dense, it holds the sandwich together!

Filling:

  • Line a loaf tin (20/10cm) with cling wrap
  • Whisk the coconut cream with the mashed banana, vanilla and 180nutrition
  • Fold in the berries taking care not to break them up too much
  • Pour into the tray and place in freezer for 30-45mins or until just solid

Putting it together

  • Cut base in half so it is the same size as the filling, 20×10(ish)
  • Lay the ice cream in the middle and top with the second half of the cake, you may need to trim the cake/ice cream a little if it’s a bit out and you’re a perfectionist!
  • EAT IT LIKE A SANDWICH!!! I started eating this with a spoon and it wasn’t nearly as satisfying as when I picked it up with both hands and took a bite

Homemade low carb besan & almond bread

By Guy Lawrence

Personally I don’t eat much bread. It’s been a number of years since I’ve cut out most grains from my diet. But I must admit, there’s nothing quite like smelling toast first thing in the morning! And when Caroline finally made a high protein low carb, grain free bread, I was very excited to try it!

Ingredients

Prep time 5min. Bake for 25-30min.

  • 1  1/2  cups of almond meal or 3/4 almond meal 3/4 180 protein supplement
  • 1 1/2 cups of besan flour
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • About 1 cup of mineral water

How to make this amazingly easy high protein low carb bread

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Mix the eggs then add them to the dry ingredients. Add the mineral water and mix with a fork until just combined.

Pour the runny mix into a loaf tin.

Bake for 25-30 min, it gets a bit dry if it’s overcooked.

Let it cool a bit then eat!!! It’s also great to slice and put in freezer, then toast when needed. Enjoy!

My favourite protein snack. The 180 Natural Protein Blueberry Loaf/Muffin.

high protein snackBy Guy Lawrence

I have a confession to make. When this high protein bluberry loaf turned up at the gym, I found myself eating way more than my quota! In fact, I had to walk away accepting the fact that I would devour the loaf in one hit if I didn’t move fast. I know it’s not exactly a box of Tim Tams, but it’s still not great etiquette from a trainer right?

So if you are looking for a healthy high protein snack, then I encourage you to give this blueberry loaf a go as it is delicious!

Word of warning though… Even though this is an all natural high protein snack, it’s still contains a moderate amount of fruit. If you are looking at losing a few extra kilos, you have to be very mindful of the amount of carb’s you are consuming daily, so go easy.
