Dairy-free brownie batter soft serve that’s thick, rich and loaded with protein (20 grams per serving!). Made without bananas or fruit.
Before you scroll down to see what main ingredient I used to make this delicious, guilt-free dessert, I’d like to remind you that I’ve never steered you wrong before.
This recipe concept is a little “out there”, yes. But I tested it like mad crazy and am confident that; if you decide to give it a go, and follow the recipe precisely, that you’ll enjoy it. Heck, you may even make a second batch on the same day. You know, just in case.
Okay… here goes.
Peas are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits. They’re low glycemic index (45-50) coupled with their strong fiber and protein content, makes these little green guys a powerful combo for anyone looking to balance their blood sugar.
Even though green peas are a low-fat food, the type of fat and fat-soluble nutrients they contain is impressive. Did you know? Green peas are a reliable source of omega-3 and 6 fats? 1 cup of green peas has about 30 milligrams of ALA (omega-3) and 130 milligrams of linoleic acid (omega-6). The fat content of green peas helps us assimilate the fat-soluble nutrients from this legume, including beta-carotene and vitamin E.
Power to the pea.
As I mentioned in the recipe, you’ll want to stack the ingredients in your blender in the order they are listed. This is imperative. Also, do not over mix! You want to make sure that all of the frozen peas are broken down and smooth, but that everything is still frozen. If you over blend, no worries. Just drop into a bowl and freeze for a little while, stirring every 30 minutes or so until the desired consistency is reached.
I froze my soft serve for 1 hour and kept it a bit chunky – the chunks taste like bits of brownies!
Sprinkle with broken dark chocolate and garnish with a strawberry, if you’d like.
Crazier than cauliflower pudding? You be the judge.
