Most people who have seen the photos of my ice cream don't believe me when I tell them the ingredients and they find out it's secretly healthy (minus the pounds of sprinkles...). I usually have to repeat the ingredients twice for it to sink in..Being a dessert and crunchy food obsessed person I had to find a way to eat some kind of protein packed dessert on my bodybuilding prep, and thanks to a lot of searching the internet and Chocolate Covered Katie, I was able to adapt her recipe to fit my macros.
So here is my favorite ice cream recipe that I eat practically every night with no added sugar, plus plenty of protein and a healthy serving of greens. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)
1 very ripe sliced frozen banana (the browner the better! Don't you dare throw out those old bananas!)
1 tbsp PB2 (or peanut butter or nut butter of choice)
*1 scoop Vega Chocolate Protein and Greens Powder (or protein powder of choice) *this can be replaced by 2 tbsp pure cocoa for a richer and more ice creamy taste, but you won't get the protein and greens**
1/5 cup Ish of crushed ice or regular ice (optional)
1 splash of almond milk
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Instructions: Blend all together until smooth, perhaps freeze for a little bit for thicker ice cream consistency.
PS- If you don't have a banana already frozen, don't freak out! Just add a little bit more ice, mix it all up, and put it in the top of the freezer to chill for 30-an hour (or as long as you can stand to wait ;) )It may be more like soft serve, but will still taste just as amazing.
This magic shell is 1/3 of the sugar of store bought magic shell, less calories, plus only 2 ingredients! So no crazy chemicals and preservatives in your "nice" cream needed.
1 bar of Ghirardelli Intense Dark "Twilight Delight" Chocolate Bar (or 11 g vegan chocolate of choice)
1 tsp coconut oil
Melt oil and chocolate together in the microwave until completely melted, then pour over ice cream and top with sprinkles quickly so they stick!
Enjoy the chocolately crunchy goodness for only 100 calories!
(This recipe makes 1 tbsp of magic shell)
