Top 5 Healthy and Delicious Ice Cream Based Recipes

Top 5 Healthy & Delicious Ice Cream Recipes

If you're craving something delicious, nutritious and different this summer give one or all of these top 5 recipes I've rounded up from around the web a go.  

1: Arctic Zero Summer Strawberry Sheet Cake

Lactose free, low-calorie, sugar alcohol-free ARCTIC ZERO® makes for a super easy cake recipe. To keep it lactose free, keep the fat content down and for a lighter option just omit the cream cheese frosting and cover with fresh sliced strawberries. Feeling decadent? Go for it!

2: Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream by Quest Nutrition

At just 70 calories and 13g protein a serving this is one of my favorite guilt free treats. Plus it only takes 5 minutes to make! So what are you waiting for? Get blending!

3: Protein Ice Cream by Bodybuilding.com

I've experimented a lot with protein icecream recipes and it's hard to get a good consistency. This recipe from bodybuilding.com is simple, uses only 3 ingredients and doesn't require an ice cream machine. 

For a creamier icecream use a casein or protein blend, otherwise add a couple of tablespoons of milk to the mix if it's too thick.  For an even richer flavor add an extract such as vanilla.

4:  Healthy Red Velvet Cheesecake Ice Cream
 

The Red Velvet Craze is still going strong so I had to include this recipe in the list. Naturally colored, sugar-free, low-carb, and high-protein using cottage cheese as the creamy, protein-rich base.  A 1/2 cup serving contains just 90 calories, 3 grams of sugar, and 10 grams of protein. So get blending.

5: Vegan Chocolate & Hazelnut Ice Cream

Ok, let's just go ahead and call this frozen nutella!!! Vegan doesn't mean on missing out, it just meand getting creative. This ice cream is so creamy and decadent while being healthily you won't even realize it's vegan. For the best results use full-fat coconut milk.
