Instant and unbelievable clean banana and blueberry ice cream (can be made as a protein treat)

One of the main things people always ask is how to I get treats into my diet when I eat clean and have such a high protein intake.

Well from the posts from the last week I hope you can see I deny myself nothing, chocolate mousse, pancakes with stewed cinnamon apples and nut butter. ALL CLEAN.

This is another one of my favourites. Instant clean ice cream. Sugar and dairy free..

I say instant it requires two things, a little patience in the prep department and a bloody good food processor (magimix or similar)

You can make this without the blueberries, infact use any fruits, but you need bananas as the base as that's what makes this so incredibly creamy.

I have this for breakfast or after the gym to replenish my glycogen stores.  The health benefits of bananas is crazy and everyone knows that blueberries are a superfood.

makes 1 medium sized bowl or two small bowls.
2 bananas sliced
1 handful of blueberries or any other  berries (optional)
50mls almond milk (less if you don't add protein)
1 scoop of natural whey protein in vanilla, blueberry or banana (leave out if you aren't on a high protein diet)
for toppings:
chai, ground flax (linseed) goji berries, coconut oil, more blueberries. Whatever you want as long as its clean.

place the bananas and blueberries on a baking tray and freeze until solid (a few hours or overnight, do it before you go to bed that's what I do)
once frozen immediately add to a food processor and blend, you might need to scrape down to get everything mixed evenly.
trickle in protein and the almond milk until the perfect soft scoop consistency is reached.
Decant and eat immediately. This is no good re-frozen.
Top with your chosen toppings and enjoy immediately.


  1. Ahhh, so is "nut butter" peanut butter? I was thinking it was a specialist ingredient.
