This high protein nice cream recipe is a late-night favorite of mine! Of all the desserts in the world ice cream is my absolute favorite! I love it but a lot of the non-dairy ones I’ve tried are chalky and expensive.  This treat is a great compromise – Healthy fruit and plant based protein at a fraction of the cost!  It definitely satisfies the craving for ice cream, and is ready in 5 minutes.

This Homemade Chocolate Nice Cream is:

  • Thick
  • Creamy
  • Chocolatey
  • Refreshing
  • High Protein
  • An incredibly satisfying dessert!
  • Vega, Dairy Free, and SO Good

The Best Blender for Ice Cream

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into a rich and creamy ice cream.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for recipes like this, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!

Whats In This High Protein Chocolate Nice Cream?

I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every other week and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

Make Chocolate Ice Cream Vegan for a Healthy Version

This vegan blender chocolate ice cream is a simple way to get extra plant power in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

If you are vegan, please check to make sure your protein powder is dairy free and certified vegan. The chocolate protein powder I use is, but not all of them are. Double checking labels is always a great idea if you eat a specific diet.

How Do I Make Nice Cream with Protein Powder?

  1. Add the frozen bananas, protein powder, almond milk, and walnuts to the blender.  Start blending on low speed and work your way up to high speed until smooth.  Add the ice and blend for 1 minute longer. 
  2. If the ice cream starts to seize in the blender, turn off the blender, scrape the sides and add 1/4 more almond milk.
  3. Pour mixture into bowls and eat immediately (or freeze 1 hour for harder ice cream).
