I think this blog has peaked. That’s how amazing and easy this recipe is. So, it's been fun, but it's all down hill from here.
First of all, I did not invent this (although I wish I did). There are a ton of variations of this on the internet but I'm partial to mine.
Second of all, the xanthan gum and a very powerful blender or food processor are not optional. Sorry.
This recipe lends itself very well to creative toppings! I kept it simple and went with 0 calorie caramel syrup and a single crumbled up cookie. That cutting life, you know? When we’re back in bulking season I’ll do a new version. Feel free to add in other sweeteners, frozen fruit, peanut butter, sprinkles, other toppings, etc. It’s hard to go wrong!
2 cups ice
½ teaspoon xanthan gum. Available in the baking aisle of some grocery stores or online
1 scoop Tru Supplements Peanut Butter Banana Cupcake Protein Powder (Use code Vegan25 at checkout for a discount!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
Sweetener to taste- I went with 2 packets of stevia
Blend ice and xanthan gum until it resembles the texture of snow
Add protein powder, blend until combined
Add remaining ingredients (besides toppings) and blend until the texture of ice cream
Scrape the sides of your bowl as often as needed
Scoop, top, enjoy!
This dish is made almost entirely of protein powder. Xanthan gum and stevia have a small amount of carbs which, If you’re prepping you want to track, otherwise they’re negligible.
