Hey all! I have something sweet and delicious to share with you…it felt about time I made a new recipe so without further ado, I introduce you to Cinnamon Butterscotch Protein Fruit Dip. This is definitely perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. It's a great way to get kids to eat more fruit! Cool, creamy and refreshing for any hot day. The best part? You can eat this dip and feel good knowing there is no added sugar! Although it sure tastes like there is.
Serving size: 4 tbsp
-1 scoop good tasting vanilla protein powder(I use designer whey french vanilla which is perfect)
-1 frozen medium ripe banana (110g)
-1 tbsp Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Butter by PB & Co. (*Note: if this isn't available near you then you can try subbing with 1 tbsp natural peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon)
-1/2-3/4 tsp sugar-free, fat-free butterscotch pudding mix
-1/8 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-4-5 ice cubes
-enough water to blend( don't overdo it! just enough to blend!) *You could use vanilla almond milk for all of the liquid, I just chose not to because I didn't want the almond taste take over in this recipe*
-1/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional but helps a lot with pudding consistency!)
-1/4 tsp sweetener(optional, it's already quite sweet on it's own!) But I used truvia as my sweetener and I gotta say, it's a new favourite!
Directions: blend together until smooth and pour into a bowl. Eat as is or refrigerate for 20 mins or so to let it set up a bit more. Enjoy! Serve with a side of fresh fruit such as apples, pears, peaches or strawberries.
