If you aren’t a fan of the new protein powders that have found their way into the market over the last decade, it could be that you just haven’t tried the right one!

Recently, I tried 13 different protein powders (15 now!), to evaluate them for taste alone. (read my conclusions here!) I was so surprised how many of them I didn’t like. Here’s what I learned:

  • Apparently, I’m not a huge fan of powders sweetened with stevia
  • The cheapest powders were pretty chalky.
  • and I like my protein shakes to get very thick and creamy – as opposed to milky and thin.

So, while my go-to protein brand I can buy at Costco or Amazon (for taste, price, and convenience), my favorite TASTING protein powder is from Uniconutrition. The Apollo protein powders are OUT OF THIS WORLD!! For real, if you have some money to find out how amazing protein powder can taste, you should treat yourself to one of these! They have so many flavors like pumpkin, cookie dough, cookies and cream, peanut butter cup, salted caramel, strawberry, and birthday cake!

So, today, I’m using the birthday cake! It is so creamy, just like ice cream should be!

How to make this protein ice cream

To make this low calorie protein ice cream, I used

After you thoroughly blend those ingredients, pour them into a freezer safe dish. One scoop of this powder actually makes a lot of volume for only 120 calories, and 24 grams of protein!

Freezing protein ice cream

Then. I just freeze the protein ice cream for a few hours. Not too long, because I like to scoop into it. If you let it freeze overnight, than just sit it out on the counter for about 20 minutes, and it should be soft enough to eat after that.

    Hey I’m just wondering how I could make it thicker I don’t know if it’s because I doubled it but whenever it freezes I get ice instead of a thick creamy texture

        1. That should be similar to what I used.To avoid “icy” and get creamy, the best advice I have ist to remove it from the freezer every 30 minutes or so to stir it (mimicking a slow churn),  That will keep most of the ice crystals from forming. Or get a ninja Creami!?! I ordered one and am excited that it should be delivered tomorrow!

  2. I love your blog -and especially appreciate both of your protein taste testing results. You’ve saved us all a fortune trying them ourselves. I did take the plunge and just had to try the Apollo trial packet. So I only have one precious serving of the flavor for this recipe at this point, so before I make this recipe I thought I’d ask if you can tell me what difference you think the vanilla pudding made, i.e., why did you add include it? I’m guessing it adds to the overall texture. The protein alone seems kind of sweet to me, so not sure if I really need to add the pudding.

    1. I hope I’m not to late!! If you haven’t made this  yet, I actually have left out the pudding many times and the difference was subtle.  And yes, I just add it because it makes it a little thicker and creamier. Ice cream made without milk fat just get’s more ICY than creamy.
      and thanks for reading my blog!!
