I’m not sure about the rest of you guys, but the heat this summer has been killing me! I try to avoid putting on the AC but some days, there just isn’t an option. On those other days, I’m fighting the heat any way that I can. This has meant a lot of water, sitting in front of a fan, sleeping on the floor and eating ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, the latter, I am definitely not complaining about…especially when it’s homemade and super delicious!
Earlier this month, I shared the top things I look for when picking a protein powder after receiving a supply of Bob’s Red Mill’s new protein powders, and after enjoying numerous post workout smoothies, it was time I got a little creative.
I was feeling particularly inspired after seeing all of those dairy-free homemade ice creams so in order to celebrate Sunday’s National Ice Cream Day, I made myself some dairy-free chai protein ice cream! OH MY GOODNESS, you guys!!
This ice cream was delicious! I’m still surprised that I didn’t eat the whole container, but actually saved some to enjoy the next day. 😉
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup coconut cream
- ⅓ cup Bob’s Red Mill chai protein
- ⅓ cup cacao nibs
Blend frozen banana in a food processor and add coconut cream until smooth. Then add in protein until well mixed and pulse in cacao nibs. Pour mixture into a tupperware and put in freezer. Stir within the first 30 minutes and then let it set. Scoop, serve, enjoy!
To make your summer even cooler (see what I did there?), Bob’s Red Mill has offered to do a giveaway for some protein of your own!
