Since entering a bodybuilding contest, I’m always looking for ways to hit my protein intake for the day. One easy way is with this high protein ice cream recipe! You only need strawberries, milk, and protein powder to make this delicious treat!
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.
Strawberry High Protein Ice Cream
- 30 g Strawberry protein powder
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- Blend all ingredients and freeze until set.
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!
