A Welcomed Accident: Healthy PB&J Ice Cream!
I recently returned from the gym and wanted to make a protein shake. I grabbed couple of frozen bananas, some un-sweetend almond milk, & my VEGA Sport Performance Protein powder. My previous smoothie I made was a bit too thin for my liking, so I decided to be extra careful when adding the almond milk this time. What I soon discovered was that by reducing the amount of liquid, the bananas and powder blended so beautifully, it resulted in a silky smooth, ice cream-like texture. I sampled it and woah…
It was delicious, but it was missing something. Peanut butter.
I grabbed a spoonful of PB and plopped it in the blender. After a second taste, it was
readyperfect. The berry flavor of the protein powder, the smooth roasted taste of the peanut butter, and the subtle sweetness of the frozen bananas melded into a beautiful symphony reminiscent of the beloved PB&J sandwich. The best part? NO GUILT! This protein packed frozen treat contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners & has a whopping 29 grams of protein. Dare I say it? You could even eat this for breakfast.
Protein Packed PB&J Ice Cream
- 2 frozen bananas, chopped
- 1 tablespoon of smooth natural peanut butter
- 1 scoop of your favorite berry flavored protein powder (VEGA Sport)
- unsweetened almond milk, to thin.
Place the frozen bananas into a high-powered blender and drizzle in a small amount of almond milk.
Blend on a low speed until the bananas start to break down and become smooth. (You may need the assistance of the blender’s agitator, or a spatula, to help the banana chunks get to the blade.)
Add the protein powder and peanut butter and blend (now on a medium speed) to incorporate, scraping down the sides often.
Carefully drizzle a little more almond milk (if necessary) to reach a desired, ice cream-like consistency.
EAT & NEVER SHARE.
Now I wonder… what other flavors could be used to create a healthy protein-packed ice cream?
Mmmmm…this looks yummy :P
