Ingredients

  • 🍦 1 Batch Low Sugar Ice Cream Base (using a sugar substitute if desired)

  • πŸ₯› 1Β½ Cups Skim or Almond Milk (or your choice of milk for lower fat)

  • 🍨 2 Scoops Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder

  • 🍌 Β½ Banana (optional, for natural sweetness and creaminess)

  • 🌱 Β½ Tsp Vanilla Extract (if using vanilla protein powder)

  • 🍫 2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (if using chocolate protein powder)

  • 🧊 Ice cubes (if needed, for texture adjustment)

Directions

  • Prepare Ice Cream Base: Start with a low sugar ice cream base, ideally one that’s lower in fat and calories. Pour it into the Ninja Creami pint container.
  • Protein Powder: Choose your preferred flavor of protein powder. Mix the protein powder with a little milk to create a smooth paste before adding to the base.
  • Add Milk: Pour the milk into the pint container with the base. Stir well to combine.
  • Add Banana: If using a banana for natural sweetness and creaminess, mash it thoroughly and mix it into the base.
  • Flavor Adjustments: Add vanilla extract for a vanilla flavor or cocoa powder for a chocolate taste. Adjust according to the protein powder flavor.
  • Combine Well: Ensure all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and the protein powder is fully dissolved in the mixture.
  • Churn: Place the container in the Ninja Creami. Select the ‘Ice Cream’ setting and churn for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Freeze: After churning, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for 24 hours to achieve the perfect consistency.
  • Softening: Before serving, let the ice cream sit out for a few minutes to soften slightly, making it easier to scoop.
  • Serve: Scoop your protein ice cream into bowls or cones. Enjoy as is or top with nuts, seeds, or fresh fruit for added texture and flavor.
