As the weather warms up it’s nice to indulge in some frosty treats that are still healthy for the whole family. This spin on ice cream is not only simple to make, but includes all the tastes of summer – pineapple, coconut and banana! It also provides a serving of protein and some healthy fats to fuel your day!
(makes 6 servings)
2 frozen bananas
2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 can full fat coconut milk (chilled overnight in fridge)
Optional: 1 tsp Blue Spirulina powder (this is a superfood that gives this treat it’s beautiful blue colour!)
Blend all ingredients in your blender. Enjoy immediately or place in the freezer for one hour if you like it a little more frozen. Alternatively, you can pour the mixture into your ice cream maker to create more of a firmer ice cream. Enjoy!
