Give your taste buds a treat with protein yogurt ice cream
Protein yogurt ice cream makes a great snack, or healthy dessert, that won't ruin your training goals.
Sometimes when you're chasing new health and fitness goals, whether they are related to weight loss, or gaining muscle and strength, you can start to feel that your meal plans are a bit bland.
That leads to cravings, which leads to unplanned cheat snacks, which leads to feelings of guilt and affects your progress. That's a bad path to follow.
It's much better to plan to include some healthy treats in your diet, so sweet tooth cravings are taken care of, while still eating clean.

Protein yogurt ice cream ingredients
Making your yogurt ice cream
This is a really easy recipe to make, with just a couple of minutes prep time, and pop the ice cream into the freezer.
Just a few easy steps;
- Chop the banana into slices
- Add the yogurt, banana and water into a blender
- Add protein powder
- Add cinnamon spice
- Blend until smooth
- Pour mixture into plastic cups and freeze
I really like the cinnamon spice, but you can consider that optional if you just like a really pure vanilla taste.
The protein yogurt ice cream will freeze really hard, so I usually shift a cup into the fridge for about 15 minutes before eating, so it's a bit softer.
My husband has a real love affair with ice cream, and always has a tub of it in the freezer, so this recipe has given us a great healthy option so he still has a tasty treat that he can enjoy, while getting a good hit of healthy protein and yogurt. That keeps everyone happy:)
