I’ve always made my protein shakes with an added frozen banana, then stick in the freezer to make it more ice cream like, trying different brands to get a better ice cream texture/taste. After seeing your blog, I tried making it without any liquid. All I got was a product the consistency of wet sand. I added half the amount of water than I normally add and that helped a lot, but I still can’t get ice cream like you do. I use gold standard optimum nutrition protein powder. Is it perhaps the brand I use? I have a lot of food intolerances, so I can’t have a lot of the brands out there.
I’ll do some more videos on this, but it’s essential for an ice cream smooth texture to use a food processor. (I Do use the optimum gold standard protein all the time, so that shouldn’t matter!). But a food processor, rather than a blender is key!
This is a favorite of mine that I like to kick up a notch by adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar free Cool Whip to while it’s in the processor. Gives it a little creamier texture and masks the protein powder after taste.
YES! What a great idea!! I’m going to try that ASAP!
