Lemon Protein “Pound” Cake with only 133 cal/5f/6c/16p per serving!
There’s just something about yummy berry desserts in the summertime! But this one is not like the rest! This “Pound” cake won’t put on the pounds. ️Nope! Ya still can work on that summer bod & enjoy the tastes of summer. How perfect is that?!
The flavors of lemon with berries is actually simply delicious. They compliment each other! One thing I like about using Buttermilk in this recipe is that it gives it that little extra punch…that tang. If you are not big on it, simply sub with your favorite non dairy milk like cashew milk (which is my fav!).
To add extra protein (especially when you need to sneak it in for the kiddos!), I used both whey and casein proteins. The reason for this is that it this formula bakes so much better than whey alone. Casein helps the dessert retain its moistness.
For whey protein, I used About Time in vanilla! It’s my perfect go-to low carb protein that’s clean and easy on my stomach. For the casein, you can use whichever lowest carb you can find. I liked using ON brand for this.
If you have questions about protein intake, dieting, and workouts…I know the BEST person to ask! All of my goals have been achieved and my knowledge increased thanks to my online trainer Shawn Nutter with Fusion Training Systems! This man truly lives to help others and is extremely passionate about what he does. Not only has he transformed me physically, but he has transformed me mentally and spiritually! A true Christian coach that cares….a Heart of Gold! (P.S. I do NOT get any compensation for saying this…I share this gem straight from my heart!)
