Craving something sweet and cold but don’t want all the added sugar in traditional iced treats?
Try this quick recipe for protein ice cream! Whenever I post this to our Instagram, I get lots of questions so I decided to share in blog form.
When made correctly, the texture reminds me of a Wendy’s Frosty. The key to achieving the thick, creamy consistency is to use a lot of ice and blend for at least 2-3 minutes. It’s worth the wait!

6-8 ice cubes
1/3 cup milk- I used 2% FairLife (can sub with cashew milk)
2 scoops Less Naked Whey Chocolate Protein (can use vegan protein)
1/2 frozen, ripe banana
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Optional: peanut butter or PB2 powder
1. Put 6-8 ice cubes, milk, protein, banana, cocoa powder, and optional add-ins into a blender. I used a Ninja but a NutriBullet works better because you do not have to scrap everything out- you can simply eat from the blender!
2. Blend for 2-3 minutes, adding in small amounts of milk at time to achieve desired consistency.
Top your treat with crushed nuts, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds, or fruit for more nutrition.
