Protein Chocolate Ice Cream
Only 3 g of net carbs and 17 g of protein, this ice cream is the perfect low-carb snack on hot days when you need a quick pick me up.
When I made this recipe I was looking for a new way to have my protein powder without always blending it into a shake. I also wanted to be able to eat ice cream on my low-carb days, because, let’s face it, a gal needs her chocolate and an Italian gal (AKA me) needs her chocolate ice cream, no matter the macros or day of the week!
This no-churn FIT ice cream is easy to make, calls for just a few simple ingredients (and NO BANANAS this time), it is fully vegan and sugar-free too!
This makes a smooth and creamy “ice cream” that is healthy and makes you feel like you are cheating but you aren’t!
Score! Who doesn’t love that?
Ingredients (make 1 serving):
- 1 + 1-4 cup almond milk
- 1 scoop chocolate Sun warrior protein powder (or any vegan protein powder, or whey chocolate protein powder if you are not vegan)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 packet stevia
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients (only 1 cup of almond milk) in a glass measuring cup
and whisk vigorously until completely combined and no clumps remain. You can use a blender if you prefer.
Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. Then blend in a blender with as much almond milk as need to make that lovely ice cream texture (probably about ¼ cup).
Scoop it out and serve.
The whole batch provides only 120 calories, 3 grams net carbs and 17 grams of protein. Suck a winner!
