Protein in 2 eggs: Only 12 grams
It is worth mentioning here that 2 eggs 373 mgs of cholesterol and consuming eggs daily may eventually shoot up your bad cholesterol so that that you get more prone to heart attacks. Nuts, on the other hand, do not contain any cholesterol!
How to Make a Yummy Vegan Ice-cream That Contains More Protein Than Eggs
Blend cashews with dates, cocoa butter, pea protein powder, and coconut oil with a high power (65o watts and higher) hand blender. Make sure that cocoa butter and coconut oil are melted before you blend them.
Add frozen chopped bananas and blend again. Add salt at the end.
Decorate the ice-cream with pieces of dried bananas and date syrup if you like.
We recommend using Pulsin’s pea protein powder because it has a neutral taste and is made from 100% natural peas. However, if this brand is not available then any pea protein powder will do – just make sure that the brand does not add any artificial ingredients. Pea protein powder is basically grounded pea so nothing to worry.
Protein in 1 cup of cashews: 18 gm
Protein in 2 bananas: 3 gm
Protein in Pea protein powder: 6 gms
Total protein = 27 grams!
Besides protein, this recipe will give you potassium, omega 6 and omega 9
