High-Protein Ice Cream


1. First, begin by peeling and slicing the bananas, before freezing for 1 hour.

2. Next, blend together your now frozen bananas, yoghurt, Impact Whey Protein & Whey Protein Peanut Butter.

3. Pour the blended mixture into a small plastic container and spread evenly. Place a few chunks of peanut butter in the ice cream and push to the middle of the mixture (this is so the ice cream freezes with crunchy peanut butter in the middle!).

4. Now melt a teaspoon of Nutella in a small bowl and drizzle it over ice cream, before swirling with a spatula. Don’t over swirl!

5. Sprinkle your chocolate chips over the top of the ice cream and then, similarly to the peanut butter, hide some in the middle of the mixture.

6. Place the ice cream in the freezer and leave for 2+ hours before eating.
