    I can appriciate this ice cream because I am always trying to find ways to get in enough protein to rebuild my muscle after working out. This sounds delicious and it is functional, so win win :)!

    Wow, an ice cream that you can eat without any guilt of gaining any pounds. I’ll include it on my daily diet regimen aside from taking protein powder before and after workout. Thanks for this.

    Sounds wonderful. I don’t have an ice cream maker and was wonder what to do to just make this into a high protein shake. (Would I just omit the xanthan gum?)

      Omit the xanthan gum and mix 1/4 of the recipe with one cup of ice. It makes a perfect single serving shake (which is how i came up with this recipe in the first place!)

    Your protein numbers are way off, though it’s a common mistake. The actual recommendation is 1 g of protein per KILO body weight for average populations, and up to 2 g per kilo for strength athletes. This is no small difference!

    I personally eat at least 2g/kilo, but that’s not what’s actually recommended or appropriate for everyone.

      Actually it’s not. On the recommended macro nutrient profile I am currently eating, 1g per kilo of body weight would be a sad 54 grams of protein a day. At the 40% protein/40% carbs/20% fat profile I am on that would mean I could only eat 500 calories of food per day and only 200 calories coming from protein.

      Basing your protein on body weight, in my opinion, is not ideal. Basing your protein intake on macro nutrient profiles is much more realistic. All you need to figure out is your daily calorie needs divided into the chosen percentages. For me to maintain my level of muscle strength and growth along with keeping a lean figure and not storing carbs as fats, I need a lot of protein. 54g a day would be a sad diet…

      Should be shooting for 1g of protein per your LBM / Lean Body Mass. Unless your light enough to get your body weight in, then by all means.. but for us big guys and power lifters its very hard to hit 1g/per lb. LBM has been the general consensus for a few years now based on scientific studies, not bro science.

    I like the recipe, but I have a problem with homemade icecreams, they turn out all icy. I don’t have an ice cream maker but freeze mine in the regular freezer containers. Any suggestions?

      Stirring every 20-30 minutes as recommended in the recipe.

    That stuff looks great! While we are talking Ice cream, it’s probably a good time to give you a reminder that you, Mr. Guilty, and lil Guilty Pleasure have Dental Recall appointments this Wednesday.

    I emailed Mr. Guilty with the times. If you can’t make it please be sure to call our office immediately so you can be rebooked.

    Your friendly Dentist who surfs the Internet and knows you.

    Protein is essential for everybody’s health. Also calories are very important. This ice cream carries the protein and calories both. So, i think this ice cream is good for all. Thanks for this post.

    That looks yum and healthy, I guess. I have one question. Is that 240g chocolate powder equivalent to 240 grams of protein. Because I think that is going to be way to much protein for me.

    • Elizabeth

      That depends on how much protein is in your preferred protein powder. But remember, this is 4 servings. So one serving will have roughly 60g protein.

    I would never have thought to turn this into ice cream. My husband is always asking me to make more and more protein, and creativity is wearing thin. I can’t wait to try this!!

    Hey, thanks for continuing to pursue your blog! Great recipes here!
    I’m going to try this with greek yogurt instead.. heard it’s a great substitute for bananas.. the oligofructans or whatever in the fibrous banana fruit gives my tummy a real ordeal everytime I try banana soft serve! :X
    Anyone else have that problem?

    Holy cow your protein estimations are way too high. As a registered dietitian I can attest to the fact that most people need about 0.8-1 g pro/kg body weight. It is actually endurance athletes (I’m talking multiple hours of training per day) who may need up to 2 g pro/kg body weight not strength athletes as people believe. Besides renal issues, ingesting too much protein can cause the body to excrete calcium, not a good thing for most women! Another note: the recommended macronutrient range for protein is 10-15%, so you are taking in about double what your body needs based on your ranges. Just some food for thought as I see a lot of incorrect information about nutrition in my line of work and like to put the facts out there if possible :)

    I have found this already pre-made protein ice cream, called Jambo Protein Ice Cream. Looks good. You might want to try it.

    Just making this now. Using what I have, so recipe is altered a bit: Almost 2 cups of frozen strawberries – no sugar added, Xanthan Gum, and wheybolic chocolate protein powder from a local nutrition store. Coconut milk (unsweetened) used for mixing base. I have it in ice cream maker now, and pre-tested flavor — AWESOME!!! Already setting up after 15 minutes, I’ll let it run longer. Thanks for posting the recipe! Friends coming this weekend who are on a high protein diet – can’t wait to share it with them!
