Cookie Dough Sundae
This treat is amazing and best of all, it’s gluten-free and it can be lactose-free (depending on which protein powder you select).
First we will make the cookie dough balls, then we will make the “ice cream”.
Cookie Dough Ball Ingredients
These taste just like cookie dough! They are so easy to make and your kids will love these, too! You can just eat these by themselves if you’d like to.
- 1 TBSP melted coconut oil
- 1 TBSP honey
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter will work)
- Optional: 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Tiny little splash of cold water if it needs more liquid.
Squish everything together and mold into 10 small balls.
Nutritional Facts per ball:

You can get creative and add dried fruit, shredded coconut, nuts, or whatever you want to these.
Next, we will make our “ice cream”.
Banana Soft Serve “Ice Cream”
You will need two bananas that have been peeled, sliced into big pieces, and frozen. Take the frozen banana pieces out of the freezer, throw them into your food processor (a blender will work, too) and turn that baby on. Once the frozen banana is all smashed up, scoop it into a bowl or a cup and crumble a few cookie dough balls on to the top.
Done! It’s that easy. A quick and healthy treat that is absolutely amazing!

Do you recommend a good protein powder? I’ve tried a couple and the flavor is horrible. Some recipes I’m sure I’d love if I had a good chocolate protein powder.
Personally, I like Nitrean+ chocolate by At Large Nutrition. I’ve also just used a generic whey concentrate from ProteinFactory.com
