So excited to announce that I’m going to be a brand ambassador for Killer Whey! high protein ice cream! How cool is that! This ice cream is definitely a product that I’m proud to promote! Being a #brandambassador means that I’m going to have a regular supply of Killer Whey! in my freezer and get to come up with delicious recipes using Killer Whey! Affogato with Killer Whey! seems like the perfect way to introduce you all to this product. Affogato is an easy, simple dessert (or breakfast!) of espresso poured over ice cream.
Killer Whey! is made locally in Meridian, Idaho by a fellow University of Idaho alumni, Louis Armstrong. He has a food science degree and strong food industry background that he used to create a delicious, healthy ice cream. Seriously, you guys need to try this ice cream! Louis and I met up last week over coffee to discuss some cross promoting of Killer Whey! and Bound by Food. Louis is very passionate about making a high protein ice cream. Killer Whey! is currently available at several grocery stores and gyms in the Boise area. Check out Killer Whey!’s website for a full list of location where you can purchase this amazing product!
And now, on to the affogato! But first, I have to tell you that Killer Whey! tastes like real ice cream. I’ve tried several of the “healthy” ice creams out there and they all tasted like “milk-ice” to me…like the texture was a little grainy and not very creamy. Killer Whey! is very tasty! It’s delicious by itself or in affogato!
Affogato is perfect for a dessert or breakfast. I might be guilty of having it after a morning CrossFit workout, because -protein! The vanilla and mint chip flavors have 11g of protein in a 1/2 cup serving and the chocolate has 16 g of protein! To make the affogato, either make an espresso or really, really strong coffee. I have a little Bialetti, which works perfectly for affogato. (I included a link to it on Amazon). After you make the espresso, scoop your ice cream into a bowl, and then pour over the espresso. You can add a liquor (Sambuca, Grand Marnier, Frangelico, amaretto, or Bicerin…I’d probably add kahlua because more coffee) if desired, just not when consuming this for breakfast. Enjoy!
