“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for adding to recipes. Most protein powders are not because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many chalky popsicles are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein powder ice cream recipe.
-2 oranges, plus zest
-1 14 oz. can full fat coconut milk
-2 tbsp honey
-1/2 cup drink wholesome vanilla protein powder
Zest one teaspoon of orange peel. Slice the oranges into wedges and remove the peel and seeds. Blend the orange wedges along with 1 tbsp honey, 8 oz of coconut milk, 1/4 cup protein powder, and the orange zest. Pour the mixture into each popsicle mold until the mold is 2/3 full. If you do not have popsicle molds, you can use muffin tins, paper cups, or even an ice cube tray. Place the popsicle molds in the freezer for 1 hour. While the molds are in the freezer, combine the remaining coconut milk, honey, and protein powder until smooth (you may need to use a whisk). After an hour, insert popsicle sticks and fill the molds completely with the cream mixture. Place everything back in the freezer for at least 4-5 hours.
