Banana Protein Ice Cream

This is actually really awesome because it confirms what I have been thinking might be possible all along: that you can freeze any protein/dairy concoction and turn it into bona die protein ice cream without an ice cream maker. 

This protein ice cream right has three ingredients + milk + optional flavoring and it’s so easy that anyone who is able to blend the ingredients and stir them can make it :-) To make this particular ice cream (which I thoroughly recommend because it turned out absolutely delightful) you will need:


2 bananas
1/2 tub quark or cottage cheese
A heaping scoop pea protein


1. Blend all the ingredients together and place in freezer.

2. Take out and stir every hour for 3-4 hours

Macros per Serving (out of 1):

10.6g fat
58g carbs (32g sugars/5.6g fiber)
41g protein

VOILA -> ice cream delicioussssssnes!!!! 

It’s incredible and what??? it’s basically just banana-carbs and protein :-)))))))) I added some toffee flavoring to the mix and some vanilla essence for an overall extra oy oy oy. Next time I make this, I’m throwing some pistachios in there or… pecans? or… oh! macadamia nuts!!! MMMMM! :-D :-D

    Wonderfull recipe Anna!

    I changed the recipe a little bit, instead of vanilla protein I used ON chocolate and some pure cacao powder. Sweetened with some 0 kcal sweetener and it’s just delicious!

    Divided it in two portions, one I ate the same evening, the other one I froze for later use. However, the ice cream now is too hard. Can’t eat it :(

    Tips or suggestions? Don’t like the idea of making the ice cream for the same evening. Rather like the idea of making it and put it in the freezer for later use.

    Thx :)

      Nom nom nom! that sounds nice!!! I know what you mean that it gets hard though, not like regular ice cream that just can sit in the fridge for ages… I’m trying to solve this issue and thinking about maybe adding arrowroot? because i hear ya, I too want to have my ice cream stay!! :-)
