Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream Recipe
Let’s face it, every one loves ice cream. (If you don’t, you’re the exception to the rule.) Lately, I’ve received a couple emails from people asking for healthy recipes. Here’s one (courtesy of Cassie) that tastes awesome, and can be eaten any time of the day.
Measurements are flexible and ingredients can be varied based on what’s on hand…
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla, chocolate or unflavoured)
- 2 heaping spoonfuls of cottage cheese
- 2 ice cubes
- 2-3 scoops of Casein protein powder
- 1 tablespoon NATURAL peanut butter (makes for a creamier texture; if the ingredients in your peanut butter are anything else besides peanuts, you can only eat it on a cheat day)
Blend together until ice chunks disappear (add water if necessary). Pour into bowl and place into freezer. After 30 minutes, remove from freezer, and stir with spoon or fork. If not desired consistency, put back into freezer and check every 15 mins.
This stuff tastes awesome. I usually double this recipe and eat it before bed. Here’s the best part: if you screw up, it ends up tasting like Jello Pudding. Either way, it’s a win-win situation! (Aren’t those the best?!)
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
