Healthy & Delicious Homemade Protein Ice Cream Recipe

Live Lean Nation’¦I finally nailed a homemade protein ice cream blizzard recipe! Do you want the recipe? Well since you’re so good to me with all the votes for Men’s Health Next Top Trainer’¦ click here to take 2 sec to vote ’¦ I’m going to share the recipe with you on today’s episode of Live Lean TV.

But before I share the recipe, remember how much I used to love Dairy Queen Blizzards? If you’re a long-time Live Leaner, you may even remember my first Live Lean TV intro included a clip of me actually eating a blizzard.

Yep, I used to crave and loved eating those things. But guess what? I haven’t had a Dairy Queen Blizzard in over a year… but I’ve still been eating blizzards almost every day!

Say what? 

Yep, when we’re living lean, it’s not all about chicken and broccoli. We find ways to Live Lean-ify, delicious treats like blizzards’¦using healthier ingredients with a much more balanced macronutrient profile. In other words, more protein, more healthy fat, and much less sugar.

If you’re like most people who crave snacks at night…

This ice cream recipe is the perfect night time snack since it high in protein and healthy fat, and low in sugar.

Dairy Queen Blizzard vs. Homemade Protein Ice Cream Blizzard

Now, lets compare the nutrition info of a Dairy Queen Blizzard with my homemade protein ice cream blizzard.

A small Dairy Queen’s blizzard contains 570 calories which 36% of those calories are made up of 23g of unhealthy fat, a whooping 80g of carbs which 72g are pure sugar. Those carbs make up 56% of the calories.  And a measly 10g of protein which make up 7% of the calories.

And look at these ingredients’¦ **shakes head**.

Now compare that to the healthy ingredients found in our Live Lean Homemade Protein Ice Cream Blizzard…

My homemade protein ice cream blizzard contains, 330 calories, which 24% of those calories are from 20g of protein, 38% of calories from 31g of carbs (all from fruit), and 38% of calories from 14g of healthy fat.

Just proof once again, that you can still eat delicious food, and still live lean.
