Chocolate Protein Ice Cream

I’m back at home in my own apartment again, and seem to have lost my entire social life to my bachelor thesis. Sounds like a good time, right? Well… Not so much. But the plus side is that this is the last thing I need to complete before I have a bachelor degree in computer engineering. Yippee!

On a different note, not sure if other places in the world had to change their clocks this morning, but in Europe we had to spring forward one hour. Let me tell you, waking up to workout this morning was so much harder than normal. I really could have used the extra hour of sleep, but after I got to the gym I felt awesome.

Afterwards, I decided that I would treat myself a little with a healthy protein snack after my workout. I decided to make chocolate protein ice cream. I was in chocolate protein heaven while eating this. It seriously tasted like a fudgesicle, only better! This would not have been possible if not for the amazing website iherb.com. I just got my new package with my chocolate protein powder, and my stevia powder. Remember, if you want $5-$10 off used the coupon code ZUG220 at checkout. Anyways, here’s the recipe:

Chocolate Protein Ice Cream

Ingredients:

Plain Greek yogurt (mine was a 300g container)

1 scoop Chocolate protein powder (I used ChocoRite)

2 pinches of stevia

Instructions:

Makes three servings.

This may be pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll go through the motions anyways. Just put your scoop of protein powder into the yogurt, and mix until fully combined. Then add stevia to taste. I ended up using about two pinches. Now, if you don’t have chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder works as well, and powder sugar or splenda can replace the stevia. After getting the desired taste, put in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Take out and stir, and put in the freezer for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this part until you get the desired consistency. The more often you stir it will help avoid icing and keep it creamy. I did this only twice because I was really impatient to enjoy it. Hehe. Either way, it was one of the best after workout snacks I’ve come up with!

    Awesome recipe, I was always wondering why someone could not come out with a protein ice cream. Great read!

    • I know, right! I acutally only tried it because I didn’t have any cottage cheese in my fridge, but it worked out great!

    Yummy! I have a protein shake and a greek yogurt everyday, but I never thought to make it into ice cream before. I bet it tastes delicious! 🙂

    • I’ve been having greek yogurt and protein shakes for a long time, and never thought of it. hehe. But boy am I glad I did now! 😀
