Gnarly Nutrition + Protein Caramel Vanilla Ice Cream

Gnarly Nutrition Review + Coupon Code. PLUS a recipe for protein ice cream - Caramel Vanilla Ice Cream

I’ve been using a few Gnarly Nutrition products for the past two weeks, and I have a full review below. In addition to that I have a yummy Caramel Vanilla Ice Cream recipe (which is protein packed and dairy free) plus a 20% coupon code.

Gnarly Nutrition

I have tried many brands of protein powders before, but this was my first time with Gnarly Nutrition. I am by no means an expert in sports nutrition, but I feel as though I am educated enough to make purchasing choices for myself with confidence. I have been looking at Gnarly for a while (I originally found them on Instagram) and really liked how Gnarly ensures that only natural ingredients are in their products and that the whey protein is made from grass-fed New Zealand cows.

Just because Gnarly Nutrition® is blended with natural ingredients does not mean it has to taste like a mountain (no offense to those who love the taste of mountainside). Gnarly Nutrition® is sweetened naturally with Trulicious®, the perfect blend of stevia, monk fruit and erythritol.

Gnarly Pre-Workout

Gnarly Pump pre-workout review

Before trying Gnarly Pump, I had only tried one pre-workout before and I wasn’t a fan of the taste. So I had some low-expectations for Gnarly. I ordered the Crankin’ Cranberry flavor and the flavor wasn’t disappointing. It wasn’t juice, but from my small experience of pre-workouts it wasn’t the worst.

Gnarly Pump is a Nitric Oxide booster with Creatine to feed your muscles. Designed to allow you to sustain harder efforts for longer periods of time, Pump is also packed with Green Tea extract for a surge of natural energy. Pump is what you need when you know things are going to get tough.

My personal experience is that I never received a “surge” of energy, it wasn’t as though I took a sip and I was hulk but I did notice that I didn’t tire out on my usual spots during my workouts. What I appreciated about Gnarly Pump was the fact that it didn’t make my heart race and I never received any jitters.

Gnarly Post-Workout

Gnarly Whey Protein Powder Review - is it worth the hype?

Usually after a workout I reward myself with a protein shake. I say reward, but my shakes always taste amazing. I tend to make a meal out of it and load it with whey protein, fruit, almond milk and whatever flavors I feel like in the moment.

FINALLY! A company that fills the container almost full to the lid! Gnarly Nutrition.

I have never seen whey protein this close to the top before. Gnarly does not skimp!

With that being said, I wanted to show all of you that there are other wheys (see what I did there) to add protein to your diet. Yes shakes are delicious, but here are a few other ideas on where you can use Gnarly Whey Protein:

  • In greek yogurt for a super packed “proyo”
  • Add it to your morning oatmeal
  • Toss a scoop over your cereal in the morning
  • Protein Mugcakes
  • Or you can make delicious protein ice cream…

  • In a high powered blender or food processor, add all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Sprink with cinnamon and enjoy.
  • If your house is as hot as mine was when I made it and it melts in the blender, toss it in the freezer for 40-60 minutes until it firms up to an ice cream form.

  1. What a great recipe idea, Randa! I use protein powder on a daily basis (in many of the ways that you suggested), but I’ve never tried it as “ice cream.” LOVE IT. Pinned and can’t wait to make my own version. The Gnarly brand products sound good!

    • Thanks Blair! I try to have protein with every meal and since that can get rather expensive, protein powder is a great and affordable way for me to do it 🙂

  2. I once tried banana with cocoa as a “healthy ice cream” ..but that was a long time ago & I can’t remember if I liked it! haha 🙂

  3. I have not tried drinking protein powders, I do make smoothies though, but not all the time, but I have not used such. I need to do a lot of reading about protein powders and I need to do a lot of workout like you. 🙂 I can try the recipe though!

  4. Oh wow, that sounds awesome! I’m starting to collect guilt free-ish foods/desserts and have bookmarked to look at again, thanks for the inspiration! <3

    Your caramel vanilla ice cream sounds great! It sound easy to make too. I think it’s a great way to use whey powder (adding it to my yogurt would be my second choice). My husband often buys whey powder, I’ll have to share your promo code with him so he can stock up!

  6. I’m glad to see that cranberry is one of the flavour options! It’s my favourite!

  7. Looks delicious! I love caramel too!

  8. 5 stars

    This sounds SOOO delicious. Where would you get caramel extract?

  11. I never would have thought of putting whey protein in my ice cream but I have to try this!

  12. I made this, but I used my company’s protein. It is delicious. Thanks for sharing.
