Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Such an easy and delicious “salad” to bring to your next party or BBQ.

After the pretzels sat for a day in my fridge, the flavors reminded me of a strawberry shortcake. 

This was so tasty, SUPER easy to prepare and makes an excellent and pretty dish to bring to a party or event.

What you will need:

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Fat free cool whip
  • Nonfat Greek yogurt

Costco has my favorite nonfat Greek yogurt and it’s very inexpensive for organic. 

Cool whip, who doesn’t love cool whip? It’s been around forever and makes for a wonderful fruit salad addition

Strawberries are sweet and pretty, that is all. hahaha!

 

Again, another item that needs zero introduction. They are the best and another great fruit salad addition.

I find a lot of cheaper items at Aldi and the quality is amazing.

How to make it:

  1. Take the nonfat greek yogurt and the fat free cool whip and place into a bowl. Mix until combine
  2. Take the chopped strawberries and mini marshmallows and fold into the mixture
  3. Either add pretzels or wait until it is being served to prevent the pretzels being soggy

Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade Protein Ice Cream

Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade Protein Ice Cream

Want to know a secret? I have never had the Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade, but I have heard people rave about it.

If this is what it tastes like from the restaurant, then YES!

My version it has less calories and it is packed with protein keeping you full for hours.

Here is what you will need:

My favorite appliance right now in my kitchen is my Ninja Creami

Here are the two protein shake brandsI have been using lately. I do prefer the fairlife over the premier due to consistency and not as much as an aftertaste as well. Fairlife has been hard to find and the Premier Protein is easy to order right here from Amazon. 

I actually had these in my cabinets for months and decided to grab them for this recipe and they worked out so well. 

Fresh lemons for my add in made a wonderful flavor for the ice cream. 

 

How to make it:

  1. In the Ninja Creami pint put all of the ice cream base ingredients
  2. Mix until combine and freeze for 24 hours
  3. Once ready, place the pint into the Ninja Creami bowl with the lid and blade attachment
  4. Press the “Ice Cream” button
  5. Press the “re mix” button 5-6 times until super creamy
  6. Once creamy add the lemon zest and press the “add in” button
  7. Enjoy

Caramel Espresso Crunch Protein Ice Cream

Caramel Espresso Crunch Protein Ice Cream

My Caramel Espresso Crunch Protein Ice Cream has to be on my top 3 of my recipes so far. It was so creamy and if you love coffee like me, then you are going to be head over heels with this one.

Not only was this extremely filling with 31g of protein, but it was also only 4 Weight Watchers personal points and only 208 calories on Healthi Calorie Command. 

Once again, I absolutely LOVE my Ninja Creami and I will always be ready to enjoy a pint of ice cream guilt free!

 

 

What you will need: 

  • Ninja Creami ice cream machine
  • Fairlife caramel protein shake
  • Instant espresso (see below for the brand I used)
  • Sugar free butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • DIJAS Natural Foods biscotti (see below for picture and link to site with code in notes for discount)

The shake I used for this one was the Fairlife Caramel and wow this flavor is amazing as an ice cream base. 

Combining that Fairlife with some easy add ins like instant espresso was delicious and definitely a repeat base flavor.

I thought by adding the sugar free butterscotch instant pudding would enhance the caramel flavoring and I was right on!

Have you heard of DIJAS Natural Foods? Well, now you have! They make the most fabulous biscotti cookies with WAY LESS calories and they make for great add ins for my ice creams!

How to make this:

  • Place all of the ice cream base ingredients into the Ninja Creami pint. I usually is a small whisk or you can use a mini blender to make sure its completely blended
  • Place the covered pint into the freezer for a minimum of 12 hours or overnight
  • When frozen, place the pint into the Ninja Creami bowl without the pint top and cover the bowl with the blade and top for the bowl
  • Press the “ice cream” button 
  • Once the mixing is done, you are going to press the “Re mix” button 5-6 times or until nice and creamy/fluffy. It usually takes longer, the longer mixed, the creamier it’ll be.
  • Add the crushed biscotti to the center of the ice cream and press the “Add in” button
  • Enjoy
