Homemade Protein Ice Cream
One of the most frequent questions I get here and on Instagram is how do I make my protein ice cream? The GIANT bowls of creamy deliciousness would entice anyone, but I never really shared the exact method to make it. And it is VERY specific.
Unlike the usual recipes online, I add more ice and grind it up before adding any other ingredients. I also use A LOT less liquid. This makes the ice cream EXTRA thick and creamy. Overall, it’s a pretty simple recipe, but I use KEY ingredients. Especially the protein powder. I’ve yet to find a protein powder that produces the same results, so if you plan to make this, I would suggest not deviating from the original recipe.
Benefits of this High Protein Treat
- High Protein Content: This ice cream is an excellent way to increase your protein intake, which is crucial for muscle recovery and growth.
- Better and fewer ingredients than store-bought ice cream: Compared to store-bought ice creams, this recipe allows you to control the ingredients, reducing the sugar and fat content.
- Customizable Flavors: You can experiment with various flavors, from classic vanilla to indulgent chocolate and fruity combinations.
