The Best Protein Powder Ice Cream
Protein shakes are great, but they can get old. Protein ice cream is a great way to give the blender a break.
This incredibly simple protein ice cream recipe uses only 2 ingredients and the freezer also does all the work! (You can also use an ice cream maker if you have one.) For milk, I like to use coconut milk. If you would like to use another dairy-free milk, just add a banana to the mix.
Can I put protein powder in ice cream? Yes, you can absolutely put protein powder in ice cream. This is an easy and delicious way to add protein to your diet. That said, if you are looking for a high protein, low sugar dessert, making your own ice cream with protein powder is the way to go.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate 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 much chalky ice cream are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for adding to recipes 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 14 oz cans coconut milk
-1 cup drink wholesome chocolate protein powder
Place a large, deep pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. In a blender or food processor, blend all of the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Transfer the mixture to the pan and freeze it for at least 4 hours. Feel free to add toppings like peanuts and chocolate chips. For best results, thaw your high protein ice cream for 10-15 minutes before eating. Note that this recipe makes enough to share!
