How to make Casein Ice Cream – This ice cream recipe comes from the famous dessert maker herself, Jacque Chirac. She created it for a TV cooking show to sample the new frozen treat. You will see at the end of this article, what she served it with. (You might want to save that recipe for another time.)
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except for the Jell-O. Stir until protein powder and Jell-O are dissolved. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes. Stir and put back into the freezer for another 30 minutes, so that the protein remains cold.
Mix coconut milk and vanilla extract together in a bowl, and add the protein powder mixture. Drop the mixture into the freezer. Continue mixing until the powder begins to disappear and the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
Put the Jell-O in a large bowl, and stir in the coconut ice cream mixture. Drop in half cup of the coconut milk, and mix until completely blended. Pour into a freezer, and let set for about ten minutes. Let cool.
Using a food processor or blender, blend the remaining ingredients together. Scoop out about a tablespoon of the chocolate whey powder and add to the mixture. Scoop and mix into the desired consistency, and pour into serving glasses. If desired, garnish with a bit of coconut oil and a sprinkle of powdered sugar for a delicious and healthy treat!
One serving of Casein Ice Cream uses approximately two grams of protein. Using a protein calculator is an easy way to determine how much protein you need for a serving. If you want to make this recipe nutritionally complete, use one tablespoon of protein per serving. Using g fat will add to the fat and calories in your diet. For those on a very restricted diet, using protein sparingly may be all that is necessary to keep you on track.
Casein Ice Cream uses whey protein isolate that can be purchased at many health food stores or online. Whey protein isolates have been shown to help with digesting whey protein, because it is the slower-converted form of protein. Using casein protein isolate will ensure your body receives all of the essential vitamins and nutrients, as well as acting as a calcium and fat blocker.
Casein Ice Cream uses branched chain amino acids (BCCA) to help speed up the digestion of whey protein. When using this combination of ingredients, the body breaks down the protein faster, which helps to absorb more nutrients. However, it can take up to six hours for the body to absorb all of the casein protein, which is why most manufacturers will add a meal or two to the manufacturer’s product. This ensures that consumers receive the full benefits of casein protein.
Casein Ice Cream also offers users the benefits of near-complete protein saturation. This means that nearly five grams of casein protein are left over from digesting the standard protein powder. This protein can then be used to help boost muscles and maintain health and strength. Because of this, the casein leaves your body feeling fuller longer, which helps with weight loss. Casein Ice Cream also provides users with almost 5 grams of protein per serving.
