Cold and refreshing, this blueberry protein ice cream hits the spot in the middle of the afternoon! With vanilla protein powder, frozen banana, and frozen blueberries, this bowl has 22 grams of protein!Jump to Recipe
While you certainly can get protein ice cream at the grocery store (Like Halo Top), you’ll find making it yourself will get you MORE ice cream, for fewer calories. Not to mention healthier ingredients!
Classic Halo Top will give you 290 calories per 2/3 cup with only 6 grams of protein and 21 g of carbs. This homemade recipe for protein ice cream however gives you almost 2 cups of ice cream for the same number of calories, but 22 grams of protein! Plus this recipe only has 2 WeightWatchers points.
I’d pick homemade blueberry protein ice cream any day of the week, over purchasing overpriced commercial protein ice cream.
To make this ice cream, I used:
- Vanilla protein powder (I’ve been trying different protein powders and got one from Well Wisdom. It’s a grass-fed whey protein powder, sweetened with monk fruit.
- Frozen banana– When I want proteins and carbs to be balanced, and get a creamy texture for my ice cream, I always use a frozen banana.
- Frozen blueberries- and of course, the frozen blueberries! They are so affordable to buy them frozen. Plus, blueberries are high in antioxidants and nutrients! They are literally a super food.
