The creamy goodness of this 3 ingredient Blackberry Protein Ice cream tastes just like sorbet – it’s soft and creamy and airy, all at the same time!
Ice cream is one of those things that I love – when I was younger I used to have it all the time. There was ALWAYS room for ice cream after dinner. I was delighted when I discovered that you can make ice cream out of frozen bananas! So easy, and healthy too!
You’ll find when you first blend this up in the food processor that it will go all crumbly like the picture above. But, just keep blending. You may need a spoon to move the mixture around a little so it gets the blades moving again. Do this a few times and eventually it will form a smooth, creamy consistency, like this:
This really is a cinch to make! – The longest part is waiting for the fruit to freeze, but I always make sure I have frozen bananas on hand (especially in Spring and Summer) so I can whip up some deliciousness in no time! To make it easier sometimes we sit the frozen fruit out for about 5 minutes before blending it.
You can use any vegan vanilla flavour protein powder in this 3 ingredient Blackberry Protein Ice Cream, but we used PranaOn Vanilla protein powder for this – a plant based, totally vegan protein powder that are Australian made. You can check them out here.
We topped this one with a sprinkling of chia seeds, but often I top mine with toasted slivered almonds – they give it a nice good crunch!
We made a video on our YouTube Channel so you can see just how easy it really is to make!
