I scream ice cream! Preferably chocolate ice cream, wìth health benefits, without unwanted additives, gluten free, lactose free and refined sugar free. In this article I am sharing a healthy chocolate ice cream recipe that is rich in protein and based on natural ingredients only.

Read on for the recipe!

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]i love! Temperatures have risen like crazy! After and during breaks from work (modelling, blogging and health education) I try to enjoy the sun as much as I can! I go for a coffee down town, sunbathe on my balcony or a nearby forest lake beach for instance. 

Bikram running

Something else that I enjoy doing at high temperatures is going for a run (be careful with running with high temperatures: more on this topic later). I call it Bikram running (does that actually exist?). Last Saturday I came back after my run; ribbons of sweat were literally streaming down my body and my face looked like a tomato (I don’t need much to look like a tomato ;)).

Clean post-workout food

After I gulped down a gallon of water, I searched my cabins for clean post-workout carbs and protein. I already had my SunWarrior vegan protein powder (vanilla flavor) and raw cocoa powder at hand when I realised I had some frozen banana’s and frozen, soaked cashews in my freezer. Hmmm, of course this asked for me to make myself a quick, experimental post-workout ice cream! All I did was throw the ingredients in my food processor, add a bit of xanthan gum for stickiness and add cinnamon for strong antioxidant power.

The result: clean, protein rich chocolate ice cream, perfect for muscle repair, super delicious and ready in just 2 minutes!

  3. I used vanilla protein powder; using chocolate flavored protein powder will give thise ice cream a more intense chocolate flavor.
  4. Add milk of your choice (coconut/almond/rice) if the consistency stays too thick.
