Protein Ice Cream
Now that the weather is getting warmer I enjoy eating cold treats! Here is a healthy ice cream recipe that will definitely keep you cool during warm days :)
Ingredients: (Makes 1 bowl of ice cream)
1 scoop protein powder (whatever flavor you want your ice cream to be...Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Chocolate Mint, Banana, etc.)
1 tbsp. of Agave Nectar
1 tsp. of vanilla extract, or if you want your ice cream to have an almond taste add almond extract, or peppermint extract. There's also orange and lemon extract that you can add to vanilla protein powder for taste.
.5 cup of lite coconut milk
2 egg whites
1 tbsp. of unsweetened cocoa powder--add this only if you are using chocolate protein powder since this will make it more chocolaty.
Mix all of the ingredients together. If you have an ice cream maker then place the ingredients in your ice cream maker. If you do not have an ice cream maker (like me) mix all of the ingredients together and place in a covered bowl in the freezer. Take the ice cream out of the freezer about 30 minutes before eating it so that it softens. Optional: Add fruit, dark chocolate, unsweetened shredded coconut, sugar free cool whip, or more agave nectar for toppings!
