Chocolate Protein Ice Cream

I wasn’t going to post this recipe on the blog because I am not in love with the photos, BUT it got a lot of hoot and hollerin’ on the FFF faebook page, so what the heck! I’ve actually shared a similar recipe before on FFF called Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream, so it is sort of a repeat recipe, but with a twist! 

Whenever I make my “ice cream” at home, I use frozen banana as my base. I don’t have an ice cream maker, so this is the perfect (and healthy) way to do it! This time, I added some of my favorite Designer Whey Chocolate protein powder to up the protein stats.

Topped with some mini dark chocolate chip and roasted peanuts. Now- that’s what I call a sundae.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder
    • Optional: 1 tablespoon mini dark chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon roasted almonds

    Instructions

    1. Place all ingredients into a small food processor and mix until fulffy. It took me about 1 minute total. I stopped one or two times to scrape the sides.

    Don’t forget about my Peanut Butter Chip Soft-Serve.

    All three of these recipes would actually be quite a tasty summertime breakfast. That’s right, ice cream for breakfast. 

    And now I leave you with some lunchtime fun from work yesterday.

    If you could eat ANY flavor of protein ice cream, what would it be?
