Premier Protein Packed Cinnamon Oatmeal ceCream

Let me get real nosey today and ask you when was the last time you had yourself some oatmeal? Or, maybe, some overnight oats?
And…what did you put in it?
Did you, maybe, put some milk in it? And…maybe, some cinnamon? How about some sort of sweetener? And…did you happen to throw in something crunchy – just to shake up the texture?

Well…what if…we shook up the quantities of those ingredients…
And….ended up having…Oatmeal ICE CREAM for breakfast?!  😆 

Cinnamon Oatmeal Ice-Cream

Yup – THAT is what happened at our home!

Now – I cannot take full credit for this ice cream. Last week, while on our second trip to Ample Hills Creamery in New York, my daughter and I got to sample their Nonna D’s Oatmeal Lace Ice Cream, which is basically brown sugar and cinnamon flavored ice cream with oatmeal lace cookies in it. Seeing I harbor an unconditional love for all things oatey, I got back to Atlanta and couldn’t get this ice cream out of my head!

Oatmeal Icecream with Premier Protein
Since I didn’t use an ice cream maker, I stirred up the brown sugar/cinnamon mix quite a bit so the ice cream would be creamy

Seeing it might be a year before we go back, I figured I would try my hand at making a tad bit healthier version of it so I could keep my tastebuds happy. I started off with some full fat coconut milk and a few splashes (actually a half cup) of Premier Protein‘s Vanilla shake in a blender. I added in some cinnamon, some brown sugar and vanilla before blending everything together. I stirred in some quick cooking oats and a chopped up, honey crunch Premier Protein bar, and let it the freezer do it’s magic.

  51. thenutritiouskitchen says:

    Some of my favorite things all in ice cream form? Helloooo yes please! So delish! I have never tried premiere protien bars either, I am always skeptical of protein bars because they never taste that great to me but I trust your judgment 🙂 Will be on the lookout for them!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Selena – I am usually skeptical of protein bars too – but that doesn’t stop me from trying different ones as sometimes I am too busy to grab a real lunch. Premier Protein bars are some of my favs!

  52. Ice cream for breakfast sounds fantastic to me! Love the flavors!

  53. Ashley says:

    Ice cream for breakfast??? Well that sounds like a fantastic idea!! This reminds me so much of a cinnamon ice cream with oatmeal cookies that I used to eat allll the time in college! Love it!

    • Shashi says:

      Cinnamon Ice Cream with Oatmeal Cookies??? Where did you go to college??? NC isn’t too far a drive from Georgia…I would so love to try some! This ice cream was inspired by one I had in NYC – a cinnamon brown sugar ice cream with oatmeal lace cookies – just so indescribably good!
      BTW – Thanks bunches Ashley!

  54. spicedblog says:

    Well cinnamon and oatmeal just so happens to be one of my favorite winter breakfasts. But you’re figured out how to turn this into the perfect summer breakfast. What a clever idea, Shashi! How about you just pack that bad boy up and send it my way? Oatmeal in ice cream…crazy talk!

  55. Wow, what a fun and unique ice cream flavor!

  56. This ice cream is my kinda treat! I love how you made it a protein treat…and I love your idea of it for breakfast 😉 My kinda start to the day!

  57. Ahhh, this ice cream looks amazing! I want it for breakfast! (+ yay for added protein!)

    The Strawberries & Cream flavor sounds awesome too! :]

  58. I’m loving the flavors here Shashi, and the pictures are just amazing. Great job my friend!

  59. juliajolliff says:

    I could eat this for breakfast! It has oatmeal in it so that is acceptable, right?!

  60. this sounds amazing! and it has added protein, win-win!

  61. What a creative ice cream flavor! With all that protein it must be healthy, right?? 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Haha – I am hoping – because I’ve been telling myself that before I had some for breakfast these last few days! 🙂 Thanks June!

  62. You are so creative Shashi! I love this idea and sure ice-cream for breakfast is completely normal for foodies like us… I bet this has a very interesting texture. I can’t wait to try it and I would love to see premier protein bars in Hong Kong. Just pinned!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Bobbie! I love your support of my ice cream for breakfast endeavor! Yes – this had a very interesting texture from the oats and the bits of Premier Protein bar – Next time you are in the US, I’ll send you some!

  63. Cinnamon oatmeal ice cream?! I mean oatmeal?! Really? I’ve checked the list of the ingredients. Twice:) I wasn’t mistaken! You weren’t mistaken either:) I love to add cinnamon in ice cream, but I’ve never heard of incorporating oatmeal. I would have never though about that. That’s so intriguing. And sounds fabulous. Well, I’ve grabbed my large spoon, and I’ve ready to participate:)

    • Shashi says:

      Haha! Ben, this was actually inspired by a FUREALZ ice cream I had in New York – it was a cinnamon brown sugar ice cream that had chunks of oatmeal lace cookies in it – it was intoxicating to me as I simply LOVE oats and cinnamon (as much as I love chocolate and nutbutters) so I tried to replicate it – I didn’t want to add oatmeal cookies so I just added oats and boyoboy was this good – good enough for breakfast 😉
