Protein “Ice Cream”

If you really love ice cream but really hate the sugar rush and guilt you feel after eating it, well, this is your recipe!!!!! This is easy, 100% guilt free, delicious and satisfying and it will help you nourish your body and build muscle and you won’t have a sugar rush after! This is my go-to recipe at night if I am still hungry after dinner and need extra protein. I never eat regular ice cream anymore because it’s simply too much sugar and I prefer to have something clean if I have the option.

Ingredients:

  • Protein of choice (I like Julian Bakery Paleo Protein – vanilla or chocolate)
  • Splash of water
  • 1/2 – 1 frozen banana
  • Cinnamon
  • 7 ice cubes
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
  • Swirl of almond butter at the end (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender. You may have to poke things to get it going – unless you’ve a Vitamix or Ninja blender. The consistency should be similar to ice cream when finished. That’s it! Enjoy!!

Feel free to mix this up! I’ve done frozen pineapple with unsweetened coconut added which is also delicious. You can do chocolate protein (or add cacao/cocoa to vanilla) and make chocolate “ice cream” too.
