Do you have a New Years Resolution to eat less sugar? I love creating dessert recipes that use no-to-little sugar. This is one of those! I’ve been making this ice cream and and fudge chunk dessert for about 5 years now, and it’s still one of my favorites.
Happy New Years Resolutions!
P.S. I would LOVE to keep in touch! Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest to stay up to date with my posts! If you end up making one of my recipes, I would love to see it! Just take a photo, post it, and tag me @saltanddough
CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM (NO PROCESSED SUGAR)
2-3 frozen bananas
1-2 scoops chocolate protein powder, about 1/2 cup (I love the Orgain brand)
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1/4 milk of choice
- Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
- Stop periodically to stir.
- Pour out of blender into a freezer-safe bowl. Freeze for about 20 minutes, until more firm.
- When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and scoop into a bowl.
- NOTE: Add in a spoonful of nut butter if you want it more creamy.
Toppings: chocolate protein fudge chunks (see below), cocoa nibs
FUDGE BARS/CHUNKS (NO PROCESSED SUGAR / HIGH PROTEIN)
1 cup peanut butter or almond butter (I love the Adams brand)
1 cup peanut butter powder, mixed with a little water to make a paste (I use PB2 Foods)
3/4 cup honey or agave
2 1/2 cups oats (quick or rolled-quick makes them less chunky)
2-3 scoops protein powder, between 1/2 to 1 cup (I love the Orgain brand)
1/8 cup milk of choice or water (add more if needed)
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine nut butters and honey/agave and warm in microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir together well.
- Pour nut butter/honey mixture into a large mixing bowl.
- Add in the remaining ingredients and stir very well. Keep mixing until combined. (Add more milk or water, if a little dry.)
- Pour into a 9×13 pan, lined with parchment paper on bottom.
- Pop into the freezer to chill for about 30 minutes.
- Remove from freezer and cut into squares (cut some into cubes for chocolate ice cream dessert).
- Store these in a gallon zippie, in the freezer.
