Homemade & Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

    The sun’s a shining, the A/C is blasting and I’ve been craving a lot more ice cream in my life. Of course, I can’t let myself indulge every time I get a sweet tooth, because the sugar would just about do me in.

    I’m sure you may have heard of the trick of blending frozen bananas to create an ice cream-esque treat, but I’ve been experimenting with ways to make it a little more interesting.

    Adding Vega Protein & Greens Chocolate Drink Mix adds a bucket load of nutrients into this sweet snack. With 20g protein and two servings of greens like kale, spinach, broccoli, and alfalfa in each scoop, the cool indulgence turns into a superfood!

    I’ve used this powder in smoothies, along with their other flavors, and love that they also work well in this recipe! Watch the video above for the full step-by-step recipe tutorial. Scroll down for the printable version.

    I used 4 bananas and 1 scoop of powder for this batch, and I found it to be a good ratio for taste. This would create about 3 servings. If you want the full 20g of protein and two servings of greens in one serving without eating the whole batch, I would suggest adding a bit of almond milk to dilute it before putting it back in the freezer to solidify.

    Homemade & Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

    Yield: 3 servings

    Serving Size: 2 scoops

    Ingredients

    • 4 Bananas
    • 1 Scoop Vega Protein & Greens Chocolate Drink Mix

    Instructions

    1. Slice bananas into 1/2 inch rounds
    2. Arrange the banana slices on a lined cookie sheet in a single layer.
    3. Place them in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.
    4. Take out the bananas and break apart any slices that are stuck together. Throw them in the blender or a food processor.
    5. Go between the crush ice setting and puree setting on your blender. BE PATIENT. This can take 10-15 minutes to get them completely smooth.
    6. Once the bananas have been nearly completely blended, add your scoop of protein powder and blend until combined.
    7. Scoop the mixture into a freezer-safe container, and place back in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
    8. After the mixture has solidified, scoop out of the container and enjoy!

    You can store leftovers in the freezer, but it will freeze solid. 30 seconds in the microwave will soften it up to just the right consistency.
