There are a lot of different ways you can make this ice cream recipe too. Keep reading, and I’ll share all the different variations, tips, and ideas that will give you an ice cream recipe that isn’t overly sweet but still delicious.

📋 Ingredients

There are just three ingredients in this protein ice cream. All three of them are easy to find and are basic pantry staples.

Protein powder

The main ingredient in protein ice cream is a keto-friendly flavored protein powder. I used chocolate peanut butter flavor.

There is also a cookie dough flavor that would taste delicious if you used it in an ice cream recipe.

Coconut milk

Make sure that the coconut milk you use is sugar-free. Unsweetened coconut milk makes this ice cream nice and velvety.

Vanilla extract

Use real vanilla extract to add a deeper flavor to the entire bowl of ice cream. You only need a small amount because the protein powder already has plenty of flavor.

💭 Tips

  • Add powdered sweetener. If you like sweeter ice cream, you can add in 2 tablespoons of powdered sweetener.
  • Let protein ice cream thaw before serving. After it is frozen solid, let it sit out for about 10 minutes before serving it.
  • Grease the loaf pan. You can also use parchment paper. This ice cream tends to stick to the pan.

🍽️ Serving suggestions

The best way to serve protein ice cream is to scoop it into a bowl and add your favorite toppings.

Some of my favorite ice cream toppings are sugar-free chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, and chunks or slices of fruit.

  • Use a high-speed blender and add some frozen fruit to your ice cream.
  • Instead of chocolate protein powder, use the vanilla protein powder and cocoa powder.
  • Or, add nut butter, and it will taste like marshmallow peanut butter ice cream. The best type is either almond butter or macadamia nut butter.

You can also use unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk!
