Ingredients:

Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt

  • 1 ½ scoops Quest® Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder
  • ½ cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • 7 ounces 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup plus 1 tablespoon zero-calorie sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 small vanilla bean pod

 

Churro & Cinnamon Bun

 

Dusting

2 teaspoons zero-calorie sweetener

½ teaspoon cinnamon

 

Chocolate Glaze

3 tablespoons Quest® Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder

2 tablespoons sugar-free chocolate

3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

1 teaspoon zero-calorie sweetener

 

Whipped Cream

1¼ scoops Quest® Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon zero-calorie sweetener

1 cup ice

½ cup water

 

Caramel

1½ tablespoons calorie-free caramel sauce

2 teaspoons Quest® Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder

 

Method:

Ice Cream

  • Scrape down the sides of the vanilla bean to remove the pods.
  • Add the pods and remaining frozen yogurt ingredients to a blender and blend on medium-high for 1 minute.
  • Pour contents into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Yogurt should be frozen within 15 minutes.
  • Remove from ice cream maker and place in a freezer-safe bowl to harden for 2-4 hours.

 

Churro & Cinnamon Bun

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave unwrapped Quest Bars®, almond milk, sweetener, and cinnamon for 60 seconds. Remove and stir until smooth.
  • Stir in Quest Protein Powder®, oat flour, almond flour, and baking powder.
  • Form two large dough balls and two smaller dough balls on wax paper.
  • Create two rectangles with the larger dough balls (about the size of a hot dog bun).
  • Roll the two smaller balls into two long churro-sized rectangles.
  • Place all four pieces on a silpat and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and spray the churros with nonstick cooking spray. Immediately coat them in your dusting cinnamon and zero-calorie sweetener.
  • Once the buns are cooled, slice them down the center.

 

Chocolate Glaze & Drizzle

  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the sugar-free chocolate, almond milk, and sweetener.
  • Stir in the Quest® Protein Powder until smooth.

 

Whipped Cream

In a small blender, blend whipped cream ingredients until very thick and airy, about 2 minutes. (Measure carefully, as the mixture will not froth if the measurements aren’t exact).

 

Caramel

Stir together the caramel and Quest® Protein Powder until smooth.

 

Assembly:

  • Carefully dip the outside of each bun into the chocolate glaze.
  • Lay one churro inside each bun.
  • Scoop two large scoops of frozen yogurt on top.
  • Pipe whipped cream on top.
  • Drizzle with remaining chocolate glaze and caramel.
