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.

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.

In order to make it, just make sure you use a high-powered blender like this BioChef Galaxy Pro Blender.

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is of amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh, and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are most of the ingredients you’ll need:

Ground cinnamon
Peanut butter
Cacao powder
Protein Powder
Maple syrup

Healthy Chocolate Banana Protein Ice Cream

Prep Time 5 mins
Servings 3

Equipment

  • High Powered Blender

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large frozen bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp protein powder, I used my favourite chocolate flavoured protein powder (linked above)
  • 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.

Notes

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.
