I think I’ve stumbled on something amazing. Really, I’m kind of surprised that I haven’t seen this in stores yet, unless I’m an oblivious grocery shopper.
These are protein fruit rollups…or, fruit leather, that are loaded with protein and high in a fresh, fruity flavour!
My creative juices started flowing when the people at ViSalus asked me to develop a unique recipe using their protein powder as part of their ’90 by 90’ recipe series. I’ve heard good things about the protein powder and I’m always excited to try new recipes, so I thought I’d give it a go.
I tried to come up with a way that protein powder isn’t typically used and this is what I came up with. It’s ridiculously simple – something you can make in literally less than 5 minutes. I’m excited to try it with different flavours/combinations of fruits now! This makes 4 good servings.
Protein Fruit Rollups
- 3 cups strawberries
- 4 heaping scoops of ViShape mix*
*You could use other protein powders, but the nutrition info will be different
Just blend up the strawberries with the protein powder. Spread it onto two dehydrator trays and let it dehydrate at 105 degrees (F) for about 16 (+/-) hours. If you over dry it, don’t worry…just mist it with water from a bottle and let it sit a few minutes.
Cut into strips and roll them up. Try to share.
This recipe is very low in saturated fat and very high in calcium, dietary fiber, manganese, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin, selenium, thiamin, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc…sounds pretty good right?!
Pack in a baggie for an emergency snack! The cool thing about this recipe is that each serving of fruit rollups equal about the same as a protein shake!
