s'mores

From a campfire favorite to one of BPI Sports most popular supplement flavors, s’mores are celebrated each year on August 10th. For those few who don’t know what s’mores (short for “some more”) consist of, just imagine the sweet velvety taste of a roasted marshmallow layered over gooey chocolate and sandwiched between two graham crackers. Can you hear the fire crackling already?

According to reports online, the original recipe is credited to entrepreneur Alec Barnum, but the first recorded version is published in the 1927 Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Today, s’mores is a popular flavor in a variety of snacks, from s’mores brownies, s’mores cakes and more.

BPI Sports’ s’mores collection includes Best Protein™ and ISO HD™ protein powder. The ISO HD is BPI Sports’ purest low calorie protein formula, and is quickly absorbed so you can maximize the nutrients being delivered to your muscles. In fact, ISO HD has been nominated for the Bodybuilding.com Isolate Protein of the Year award. BPI Sports’ s’mores flavor is also in our Best Protein Bar™ with 20 grams of protein. It makes for a delicious, on-the-go snack, but also a great way to help squash cravings.

To celebrate National S’mores Day, BPI Sports is bringing back some of our top recipes including protein shakes and more. Continue reading for ingredients and instructions on how to make your very own s’mores treat this August 10th.

Next, pour the chocolate inside the glass as you turn and place in the freezer, to set while you prepare the protein shake. Then, blend the BPI Sports Best Protein™ protein powder, almond milk, yogurt and liquid stevia and pour it into the chocolate-coated glass. Add the whipped cream and some chocolate chips on top. Take the skewer, add one marshmallow, followed by a strawberry, another marshmallow and another strawberry. Set your oven to broil and place the assembled skewer to brown the marshmallow.

Best Protein Bar

Instructions: Blend the protein pancake mix, the Best Protein™ powder, the cinnamon and water until the consistency is liquid-like. The mixture shouldn’t be too thick or it won’t fold. Then, pour ¼ cup of the pancake mix in the center of a pan over medium heat and let it spread out naturally. Do not swirl the pan around. Cook for one minute until it bubbles, then flip and cook for one more minute.

Place the cooked pancake on your plate and add 3 scoops of Cool Whip to one side of it. Don’t place it in the center of the pancake. Drizzle some chocolate and caramel sauce, then fold the pancake like you would an omelet. Drizzle some more sauce over the pancake and top it all off with the cubed S’mores flavored Best Protein Bar™.

ISO HD

Instructions: Simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease your pan. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla on medium-high speed until the mixture seems pale and fluffy. It should take about three minutes. Next, add one egg at a time, still beating and thickening the mixture. Make sure to scrape the mixing bowl after every egg. Then add in the flour and beat some more.

Pour the mixture in the pan and let it bake for about 24 minutes. Place a toothpick into the center of the cake, and if it comes out clean, you’ll know it’s ready. Cool off for 15 minutes and loosen edges with a knife before frosting. Finally, spread on a thin coat of frosting on both sides of the cake. You can use a cooling rack to help. Then sandwich three Best Protein Bars™ on the bottom and three Best Protein Bars™ on the top. Trim off excess cake and cut into smaller pieces.

So, which recipe do you think you’ll try to recreate?

Happy National S’mores Day from all of us at BPI Sports!
