Previously, I’ve made banana flavored high protein ice cream. And while that is pretty good, I don’t always have frozen bananas.

Now however, we’re headed into strawberry season, and I can’t resist adding strawberries to everything. Even when strawberries aren’t in season, frozen strawberries, which you can get year round, are perfect for this ice cream!

So, with it being strawberry season, I felt inspired to try making this version of my typical banana ice cream.

Of course, the possible variations for this recipe are endless. You can sub out any flavored protein powder to create your very own flavor. But, if you’re wanting to remake this strawberry protein ice cream, then vanilla or strawberry powders generally work the best to get that rich strawberry flavor.

What’re the best protein powders?

My favorite high protein powders are ones that have under 150 calories per 25 grams of protein. I’ve been using the Optimum Whey, and Combat brands from Costco. I’ve also tasted 13 different protein powders and wrote a post about the ones I liked best vs worst protein powders here!

I’ve also followed that up with another vanilla protein powder taste test and tried out many of the Clean Simple Eats flavors!

Let me know if you try this recipe, or the high protein banana ice cream here!
