Healthy Chocolate Banana Protein Ice Cream

Both my teens are athletes and have requested extra protein in their meals in general, even in their healthy treats.

I’m so proud of how delicious my new recipe for Healthy Chocolate Banana Protein Ice cream tastes using just 6 ingredients. My son agreed and said that it tasted somewhere between ice cream and mousse!

Lately, my son, in particular, has become very disciplined when it comes to sweet foods and I’ve been making more and more low-sugar, high protein sweet options for him and he is thrilled to have this as a tasty high protein option to have for dessert or a snack.

The natural sweetness from fresh bananas combined with milk of choice makes a delicious and simple ice cream swap that also makes a perfect breakfast option, especially for the athletes in the house, providing a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and fats for sustained and longer-lasting energy.

I recommend eating it straight after it’s made for the best consistency, if you put it in the freezer, just make sure you pull it out 20mins-30 before serving as it needs to soften.

  • 2 large frozen bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp protein powder, chocolate or vanilla flavoured
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup almond milk or milk of choice, add a bit extra if the mixture is too thick but you don't want it too loose either. Aim for a soft serve consistency
  • 1 tspn cinnamon powder, optional

Instructions
 

  • Place all the ingredients in a high powered blender and blitz on high until well combined.
  • Eat immediately or store in freezer.

Have a little taste and add a little maple syrup if needed.
This is best served immediately as soft-serve ice cream. If you want to eat it later store it in the freezer but remove from the freezer 20-30 minutes before serving to allow it to soften.
