Protein Risalamande | Recipe & Macro’s
Protein risalamande has to be my favorite, macro-friendly, christmassy dessert.
Back in the day, before I got into fitness, risalamande used to be one of my biggest addictions. It was so bad I had to do something. I went into the kitchen one October evening and experimented, and came up with a protein rich, low carb version: Protein risalamande! Suddenly, my life was perfect! I could enjoy my favorite dessert guilt-free and easily fit it into my macros too. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the right type of cottage cheese in Dubai, so this year I haven’t enjoyed this amazing little treat. Until now. I’m back home in Denmark and shortly after I reached my dad’s house, I literally ran to the store to fetch the ingredients for this amazing treat. I originally posted this recipe in October 2013, but in this blog, I’ve updated and simplified the recipe. I hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy it as much as I do!
Ingredients for 1 serving:
- 150 g. vanilla skyr (or low-fat Greek yogurt with some sweetener and the seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean)
- 250 g. 1,5% cottage cheese (Cheasy‘s is the best!)
Topping: Ready-made cherry sauce or 100 g. frozen, seedless cherries, the seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean, a bit of sweetener.
How to make Protein Risalamande:
Mix together skyr, cottage cheese, sweetener and vanilla bean in a bowl. That’s your protein risalamande right there!
Top with the ready-made cherry sauce (but note this will increase the carb content) or make your own low-carb option:
Heat up the frozen, seedless cherries and add the vanilla seeds and sweetener of your choice. And voilá!
