    I’m back with another protein ice cream. Although it’s fall, and not really ice cream season, I just couldn’t resist.

    Blending a frozen banana with protein powder has become a mainstay for me and an afternoon treat. It started with this protein soft serve sundae, and then I made this Caramel Banana Soft serve ice cream. It’s the FASTEST, healthy protein dessert on the planet. The key is to have a frozen banana all ready to go in your freezer at all times!

    But as I said, the possibilities are endless with different flavored protein powders, and different flavors of sugar free syrups. (for chocolate protein ice cream, click here)

    So, today, I stuck with a simple protein berry ice cream and used:

    • 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla). For vanilla, which I try to use 9 out of 10 times I use it in recipes, I buy the bag you can find at Costco, Optimum Nutrition brand. For flavored protein powder, I like Clean Simple Eats, and Uniconutrition.
    • 1/2 frozen banana. Normally, I use a full frozen banana, but I wanted to add the frozen berries, without changing the texture too much- because the texture is perfect!
    • And then, 1/2 cup frozen berries.

    The trick to the perfect protein ice cream is a food processor! This can not be done in a blender. Since there is no liquid added, your fruit and protein powder probably won’t blend. But in a food processor, it stays thick and blends nicely.

    You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg for a food processor either. I have had this small one (Cuisinart Mini for $40) for a decade. I totally need a new one, and I have to hold down the power button to make it work, but it’s been pretty solid.

    So, anyway- pin, print, like, share.. do all the things if you want to make this ice cream. Tag me on your social media so I can see!
