Strawberry Shortcake Protein Ice Cream Balls
yields about 20 ice cream balls
- 1 cup ricotta mixture (see recipe)
- 1 cup fresh strawberries
- 1 cup Vitacost angel food cake protein powder (may substitute with this vanilla protein)
- 8oz full-fat cream cheese
- 1 package natural graham crackers, about 7-8 crackers (no preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, or high fructose corn syrup)
Combine ricotta mixture, cream cheese, strawberries, and protein powder with a mixer. Place in freezer for 2-3 hours. Crush graham crackers using a food processor or smash in a plastic bag by hand. Pour crumbs onto a plate, scoop out the ice cream mixture with a tablespoon scooper and roll in the cracker crumbs. Serve immediately and store extras in the freezer. Make this easy by rolling three at a time in wax paper and placing in a plastic bag. This will make it easy to grasp 3 for a quick and healthy snack when you’re craving something sweet!
