3-Ingredient Protein Ice Cream | Healthy Treats

Protein ice cream is the easiest and most delicious way to top off the tank on any meal, or enjoy a guilt-free treat. This recipe is keto-friendly and low carb.

OMG, as I create this post, it is 118 here. It is the 5th day over 115. It is the 22nd day over 110.

I did not intentionally sign up to be a part of these record-setting instances. I’m over it. AND… nothing sounds good… well, except for ice cream, cold smoothies, and I think now I actually COULD do a cold plunge.

Whether it’s hot where you are, or you just need a little something after a meal, this is guilt-free. It’s not “no calorie” to be clear, but it can be “keto-friendly” and after a meal, it may just hit the spot. The high fat content of the coconut milk makes this creamier than if you don’t use fat. Skipping the bananas (called for in many protein ice cream recipes) keeps even the natural sugar content low. That’s good news for insulin resistant women in midlife.

This is “no churn” so you neither have to have an ice-cream maker or sit on the curb cranking away (did I just date myself?). A high powered blender (I use my Vitamin for this one) or a food processor will do.

For traditional vanilla, here you go. You can always let everyone add their own toppings, which is part of the fun. But you can also make it with some add-ins (see the FLIPS below)

Ingredients for Basic Ice Cream:

Instructions for At Home Cream: 

Place a large, deep loaf pan or deep pan in the freezer.

In a blender or food processor, add your coconut milk and blend until smooth and creamy. Add your protein powder and granulated sweetener or dates and blend until a thick and creamy texture remains.

Transfer workout protein ice cream to the loaf pan. To ensure it doesn’t become too icy, lightly mix your ice cream ever 20-30 minutes for the first hour.

Thaw for 10-15 minutes before eating. Lightly wet an ice cream scoop before scooping the ice cream into a bowl.

To enjoy it soft serve style, let it thaw to desired texture.

You can grab either Flipping 50 Plant Power (made from pure peas) or Flipping 50 Paleo Power (an animal-based option that is dairy and soy-free) to make this. Start saving with Subscribe & Save. I’ve had a smoothie a day since I was 31. It’s an easy, convenient way to increase your daily protein and avoid “no time” excuses for having veggies, protein, and healthy fat. Not to mention the super foods and adaptogens that can make this a menopause symptom supporting habit.


  • Stir in nut butter ribbons! I’ll use sun nut butter myself.
  • Add 2 T raw cacao for a chocolate option (with or without the nut butter!)
  • Stir in frozen fruit: two favorites are raspberries and mangos, not necessarily in the same batch
  • Chocolate chips and a little mint extract (remember thin mints?)

I’d love to know if you make this! I’ll be sharing some more special recipes for chilling in this next 5 days.. of more of the same heat here!
