Protein Ice Cream: A Guilt-Free Treat

Craving for a sweet treat but don't want to deviate from your healthy eating habits? Say hello to protein ice cream! Packed with all the deliciousness of regular ice cream but with added protein, it's the perfect option for fitness enthusiasts or anyone who wants a guilt-free dessert. But is protein ice cream healthy? Yes, it is! Let's explore more about it and dive into some lip-smacking protein ice cream recipes.

What Makes Protein Ice Cream a Healthy Treat?

Unlike traditional ice cream that often contains high amounts of sugar and fat, protein ice cream provides an excellent balance of taste and nutrition. The added protein can help keep you satiated, support muscle recovery, and aid in weight management. Combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise, protein ice cream can indeed be a part of a healthy lifestyle.

Key Information:

  • Servings: 14
  • Prep time: 30 minutes + cooling
  • Churn time: 20-25 min
  • Equipment: ice cream maker



  • 2 cans (13.5 or 14 ounces each) of full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of espresso powder
  • 6 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Scoop of TumLove Low FODMAP & Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 3 lightly beaten egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 72 g toasted slivered almonds or 100g of toasted shredded coconut 



The night before, pop your ice-cream maker bowl in the freezer to chill.
In a blender, combine coconut milk, TumLove chocolate protein, sugar, cocoa, espresso, salt, and vanilla.

Blend everything until you get a smooth mixture.

Pour the milk blend into a saucepan and heat it over medium heat. Let it come to a light simmer while stirring occasionally (don't let it boil).

Take a large mixing bowl and whisk the egg yolks until they lighten in color.
Gradually stir around 1/3 cup of the warm chocolate-milk mixture into the whisked eggs to temper them.

Slowly add the remaining liquid, mixing it all until perfectly combined.

Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and heat it until the edges start to bubble, which should take about 5 minutes (the mixture will slightly thicken).

Cover the saucepan and place it in the refrigerator overnight for the flavors to meld.

Once the mixture is nicely chilled, give it a good re-whisk to remove any lumps.

Then, pour it into the pre-chilled ice cream container and get ready to churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. It should take around 20-30 minutes.

After churning, you can fold in some toasted almonds or coconut for an extra yummy twist (you can do this by hand).

Now, you have two options: You can indulge in the creamy goodness immediately for a "soft serve" experience, or you can freeze it in a freezer-safe container, covered, for 6-8 hours to achieve a firmer texture.

If you choose to freeze it, don't forget to let the ice cream set out for 10-15 minutes before scooping.

    There you have it! Enjoy your homemade ice cream with the goodness of gut-friendly ingredients. It's a treat you'll want to savor over and over again! 🍨

    Protein Ice Cream: Making it a Part of Your Healthy Lifestyle


    Now that you have a delicious protein ice cream recipe at your disposal, incorporating this healthy treat into your lifestyle should be easy. Whether you enjoy it post-workout, as a dessert after dinner, or as a refreshing afternoon snack, protein ice cream can fit perfectly into a balanced diet. But it's important to remember that while protein ice cream is a healthier alternative, portion control is key. Too much of a good thing can still tip the balance of your nutritional intake.

    Opt for High-Quality Protein Powder

    The quality of your protein ice cream highly depends on the protein powder you use. Opting for a high-quality, gut-friendly protein powder like TumLove's Low FODMAP Gut-Friendly Protein Powder can make a world of difference in both taste and nutrition. It's vegan, low FODMAP, and comes in a creamy texture and delicious flavor, making every spoonful of your protein ice cream a delightful experience.

    Conclusion: Say Yes to Protein Ice Cream!
