Banana Cream Pie Protein Ice Cream recipe is here to satisfy your sweet tooth without guilt.

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas 🍌 (the riper, the sweeter!)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk πŸ₯›

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder πŸ’ͺ

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (for extra creaminess!) 🍦

  • 1/4 cup crushed graham crackers (for that pie crust feel) πŸͺ

  • 2 tablespoons honey (adjust based on desired sweetness) 🍯

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • A pinch of sea salt 🌊

Directions

  • Begin by peeling and slicing your bananas. Place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
  • Once frozen, place the banana slices into a food processor or high-powered blender.
  • Add the almond milk, vanilla protein powder, Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy, resembling soft-serve ice cream.
  • Fold in the crushed graham crackers with a spatula to add texture, mimicking the crust of a banana cream pie.
  • Transfer the mixture into a freezer-safe container.
  • For a firmer texture, freeze for an additional 4 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to serve, let the protein ice cream sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly.
  • Scoop into bowls or cones, and if desired, garnish with additional graham cracker crumbs or fresh banana slices.
  • Enjoy your guilt-free indulgence!
