Apple Pie Protein Ice Cream

It’s finally starting to get warm!  It has been the longest, coldest winter ever!  I was thrilled yesterday that it got into the 80’s and will be again today.  To celebrate I made a healthy “ice cream.”  With the protein, this makes a great post workout treat!

This recipe was adapted from here:

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple (divided)
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used Sunwarrior vanilla)
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • ice

Directions:

  1. Dice apple.  Place half in the blender and reserve the other half.
  2. Place all other ingredients in the blender and blend until desired consistency.
  3. Stir in the rest of the diced apples.
  4. Pour into a bowl and top with cinnamon.
  5. Eat immediately or, for a more “ice cream” consistency, place in the freezer for an hour and a half and stir every 30 minutes.

This is what it looked like before I added toppings.

This would also be great topped with almonds, hemp seeds, banana slices, etc.

This recipe makes 1 large serving or 2 small servings.  The entire recipe yields approximately 465 calories and 24g protein.
