Banana Berry Protein Ice Cream

By Georgia -

The Australian summer is well and truly here! And with that, comes the time when we all collectively prepare the freezer for icy treats.

This year it is officially time to get out your own popsicles moulds and engage in some DIY. What better way to cool down than with a healthy ice cream that will give you a big old protein boost? There probably isn’t one.

Yield:

4 ice creams

Active Time:

5 minutes

Total Time:

5 minutes


Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ripe bananas, frozen or unfrozen (I used frozen)
  • 3 tablespoons Bare Whey protein (or any Bare Blends flavour)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ cup natural yoghurt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 strawberries

Directions

  1. Remove the skin of your bananas, and pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes. You can of course use a small pot and the stove for this one.
  2. When the bananas are both defrosted (if using frozen) and cooked, set them aside to cool for a lil bit.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together your yoghurt, maple syrup, vanilla and Bare Whey, until the protein has disappeared into the yoghurt mix. Now add your bananas, and mix again until all combined.
  4. Grab a popsicle mould (this recipe makes 4 popsicles in a standard mould) and divide the ice cream mixture evenly between each. They might not be filled up completely, but that’s ok. The strawberries have yet to go in!
  5. Hull and slice your strawberries. Take two slices per mould, and slide them carefully down each side of the mould, ensuring they are as close to the edge as possible.
  6. Pop the moulds in the freezer, and keep checking back desperately until they are completely frozen. Overnight is best, so that the stick doesn’t come away from the ice cream, leaving you with no option but to use a spoon. Sad times.
  7. If you fancy it, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and combine it with roughly 2 teaspoons of maple syrup and Raw Cacao Powder, depending on your chocolate preferences!

I'm Georgia, a 23 year old from Melbourne. I have always been a food lover, a fact that photos of my formative years (and beyond) can attest to. I started this blog and my Instagram @georgeats as a way of chronicling my way of eating as I sort out a number of digestive issues that have been plaguing me for the past couple of years. I love brunching, good food, good booze, good coffee, travelling, and a bit more brunching. Dreaming of the day that I can travel and eat and be paid to do so. Dream big, right?
