⏲️ Cook Time 
🍽️Serving Size
10 minutes  12 treats


  • 1-1/2 cups of GSI Whey Protein in Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 6 cups of rice crispy cereal (preferably Kellogg’s brand, but any brand works fine)
  • 6 cups of small white marshmallows
  • 3 tbsp. of butter (any butter works fine; unsalted/ salted)


  • Place a large saute pan onto the stove top and adjust heat setting to low
  • Throw the butter onto the pan and allow it it melt (be sure to line the bottom of the pan)
  • Once the butter has fully melted, slowly pour in the marshmallows while stirring (be sure to fully stir until the marshmallow clumps are gone)
  • Pour in the protein powder while stirring (be sure to fully stir the mixture until the protein powder is fully mixed in).
  • Then add the rice crispy cereal in and throughly mix together all the ingredients
  • Line a 9×13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray (too little spraying will cause the rice crispy treats to stick to the pan and we all know that’s a messy clean up!)
  • Allow the treats to fully cool for about 1 or 2 hours.
  • Cut the treats into 12 squares
