Protein Parfait Crunch!

Nothing is better than the contrast between soft/smooth and crunchy! It's why we love the pie crust, the burnt hash browns, cereal, cookies,chips, pitas, the crumble on top of apple/berry crisps, or crispy cheese that's been burnt just right! It's that audible crunch that adds substance! I remember adding cereal and cookies to my milkshakes/ice cream- and savouring it as it soaked up the flavor! Sometimes, a girl just NEEDS a little crispy crunch in her life- along with all the other things that make it sweet!



1.Add ice, sugar free syrups, sweetener, cinnamon and protein into container. Add scoop of PGX or gums.
2.Blend. Add more ice/syrup/PGXGranules etc and blend to reach creamy thick consistency!
3.Pour a bit into your glass bowl.
4. Add the GG Sprinkles or Crumbled GG Bran Crispbread.
5.Add more of the 'ice cream' and GG Sprinkles/GG Bran Crispbread and keep layering.

This honestly tastes like a Wendy's Frosty with Graham Crackers crushed in! Or like the amazing oatmeal granola crumble sundaes I used to eat!

-Squirt in Sugar Free Chocolate Sauce/Syrup (Walden Farms), caramel etc or drizzle on top!
-Add in more Cocoa for a chocolate-y antioxidant polyphenol boost!
-Add blueberries, banana's, nuts, nut butters or any stir/add ins (cookies included!)
- You can use ANY OTHER CEREAL instead of the GG Sprinkles/Crispbread. Anything with crunch!


  1. i think i am still the only one left in this blogging world who has not tasted anything with protein powder. maybe this really is a calling for me to try it ;)

  2. Yum! I love crunch! :) Looks so good. Thanks for the kind words about my blog. Appreciate it.

  3. I love protein powder but unfortunately it doesn't like me. I shouldn't be surprised as this is the case with most everything, food, people, etc. But if I could I would LOVE to try this! It looks delicious. :)
