Why would you have a protein shake when you can have ice cream for the same macros? Seriously, ever since I started making this, I have shakes a lot less just because this is so much better. Ice cream is my favorite dessert in the whole wide world. No intention of giving it up, but I know it’s not always the best idea even as a flexible dieter. This recipe has saved me from my old 2 pints a week habit and therefore, several extra pounds. Of all the protein treats I make, this one is the one I make the most. It’s quick, it tastes great and it always fits my macros! Please tag me in your posts, @lafemmevegan and show me how how you like to top yours.
I was being extra adding a chopped up Chocolate Mint Builder Bar for my topping here, but this entire bowl of ice cream otherwise is 21p/4f/3.5c !! Of course those macros will differ a bit depending on what protein powder and plant-based milk you decide to use. My favorite right now is Tru Supplements Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie protein powder. The flavor is so amazing I don’t even add any extra sweetener. If you use something else, I do recommend adding a bit of stevia to taste, but Tru’s Dessert Line is fire all by itself!
