This may or may not have been posted before, but since I couldn’t find it, I thought I’d post!
We actually used this as a meal replacement item, but I think I may use this in the future to add calories to my day when I’m trying to put on weight. It was awesome!!
Ingredients (2 hefty servings)
-1 cup full fat coconut milk
-1 cup almond milk
-2 tbsp natty pb
-3 scoops protein powder (I used Metabolic Drive Low Carb Chocolate) (1/3 cup scoop sizes or approx 29g/serv)
Put all ingredients into the blender and blend for a while. Start ice cream machine, pour in ingredients, and 20 minutes later…ice cream!
I provided a picture of the results below. This was straight out of the ice cream maker so it was a bit softer. If you want a harder ice cream, you can just throw it into the freezer for a few hours (or days).
The liquid portion of this can be adjusted. For this recipe, I think next time I’ll use Light Coconut milk b/c of the added fats in the peanut butter. You could also use just almond milk or water or milk, whatever you want.
As made, here is the nutrition facts per serving:
This could easily be adjusted by doing ALL coconut milk (brings calories up about 200/serving) or decreasing cals with ALL almond milk and/or replace natty peanut butter with PB2. Basically, it’s a desert you can adjust to any nutritional need.
I’m going to try a strawberry vanilla protein ice cream and maybe have it for breakfast >:)
