Do you crave ice cream but hate the calories and sugar that are bound to come with it? I crave a good ice cream every once in a while – I’m human! However, my usually GO-TO is Halo Top Creamery brand. It is high in protein, lower in carbs and sugar, and they’re all pretty tasty so they get rid of that craving that I was having. Which is awesome!

The only thing is, it’s usually 5-6 dollars per little PINT, and you know I’m going to fit that whole pint into my macros for a big treat at the end of the day. That makes for one expensive snack!

Cookies N’ Cream [Protein] Ice-Cream!

Ingredients

  • Pinch of Xanthum Gum
  • 1/2 scoop of Cookies N’ Cream protein Powder

Instructions

  1. Put the crushed ice into your blender (I use a Ninja Blender)
  2. Add Protein Powder (I used Combat – Cookies N’ Cream)
  3. Add a pinch of Xanthum Gum (the more you add, the more fluffy it will be – it will change the whole consistency…so play around with how much you like!)
  4. Add in a pinch of Stevia (optional)
  5. Add in the almond milk
  6. Blend blend blend! (this may take a little bit longer than you think. Make sure all ice is blended and that you like the consistency!)
  7. Add into your bowl and sprinkle on the toppings!
  8. ENJOY & Let me know what you think!

The picture above, honestly, wasn’t even the FULL serving of ice cream, or the full serving of coconut either (for picture purposes, I used what fit into this nice white bowl haha)!  It is SUPER easy to make and you only need a FEW ingredients. I can’t get over how simple it is really! The amount of ingredients you use vs. what you actually get after you make it, is mind-blowingly awesome, too!

 Enjoy!
