Strawberry Protein Ice Cream

IMG_6888

It’s my first summer in Spain and I’m realizing why they have siesta. The temperature often hits over 30C and when it gets up to 37C I cease to function. Of course, that doesn’t stop me from turning on the oven to make ice cream cones. Thankfully, this protein-enhanced strawberry ice cream is super quick to make and just as creamy, dreamy (and cooling!) as you want it to be. Mix in fresh strawberries or pile a bunch on top for even more decadence.

Ingredients 

  • 1.5-2 cups frozen strawberries
  • Coconut cream (the fat from 1 preferably chilled can of full fat coconut milk)*
  • 1 serving vanilla MOVE Protein
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice (optional)
  • ice cream cones
  • fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Use a blender or food processor to combine strawberries, coconut, vanilla, and protein. Blend until ice creamy! If you need a little liquid to get the blender going, add the leftover coconut liquid 1-2 teaspoons at a time. If your mix is too runny, add more frozen berries.
  2. Serve immediately with ice cream cones and fresh strawberries or freeze in an air tight container.

* Stick the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight (or for a few hours in the freezer) to make taking out the fat easier. If you haven’t done that and you need ice cream NOW, use a spoon to scoop out the fat delicately, tipping off any extra liquid that you can.
