It’s hot outside.
Like real hot.
So hot that it’s all you can think about hot.
And when it gets that hot, I crave something cool.
And the first thing that comes to mind is ice cream.
But ice cream isn’t the healthiest option. So I improvised. And didn’t use ice cream at all.
- Frozen whole strawberries
- Frozen mango pieces
- A banana
- Vanilla protein powder
- Unsweetened almond milk
Put a handful of mango and a handful of strawberries into the blender. Cut the banana into four pieces, and toss in a packet of your favorite vanilla protein powder.
I used SFH Pure from Whole Foods, which is the only brand of protein powder I like. And I’ve tried a lot of brands.
Then pour some almond milk on top of everything and start the blender. Don’t use too much almond milk at first so you can add more to get the proper consistency of ice cream.
I didn’t measure anything. I just eyeballed it, and it made enough for two people.
It’s the perfect summertime healthy treat.
