Ice Cream Cake Layers

There are 3 layers to this cake, brownie, strawberry, and vanilla. Of course you could always swap out any of these flavors and replace it with your own recipe. Just remember that the nutrition facts will change with any substitutions!

Brownie Layer

🍫1 Brownie layer:🍫
✔️For this I used one recipe for “ridiculous brownies” pinned to the top of @lowcalrecipes98 Instagram page. 

After mixing, I poured into the bottom of a 6 inch springform pan and baked it. Once it was out of the oven, I put it in the freezer till solid.

Strawberry Layer

🍓The next morning, I made my protein strawberry layer: 🍓
✔️strawberry protein powder
✔️frozen strawberries
✔️vanilla unsweetened almond milk

Blend the strawberry protein layer in a blender until smooth and pour over the frozen brownie in the spring form pan.

Vanilla Layer

🍦A few hours later, I made the Vanilla layer🍦
✔️ vanilla protein powder
✔️ frozen banana
✔️ vanilla unsweetened almond milk 
Blend in a high powdered blender, and pour over the frozen strawberry layer.

Freeze one last time until solid. When ready to remove from pan, set out on counter for about 10 minutes. Release the clasp on the spring form pan and remove the layered protein ice cream cake.

Cut into 6 slices and enjoy!
