Simple Strawberry High Protein Ice Cream Recipe
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!
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!
Hi just want to ask if anyone knows if the skim milk in the high protein strawberry ice cream can be substituted & any recommendations? All advice is appreciated! Thank you.
You could try Almond milk Cristine! I think it tastes just as good.
What a delicious treat! We’ll definitely be making this again!
Oh so simple, flavorful and I loved the color too!
Amazing ice cream as a source of protein! Love to try this recipe, totally guilt-free desser.
This was so easy and delicious! It was the perfect after workout treat. I never thought to use strawberry protein powder but now I know!
Such a clever, easy and healthy way to satisfy my evening sweet tooth! This is in a constant healthy treat rotation at my house.
