Chocolate Peanut Butter Shakeology Ice Cream

Chocolate Shakeology PB Ice Cream

Ice cream. Once upon a time it was my favorite thing to eat. Then I realized a lot of the bloating and digestive issues I had were because of dairy issues and I had to break off our relationship.

Sigh…

Then, one day while grocery shopping I found Lactaid ice cream and we were reunited and happy together.

Yay!

That is until the 21 Day Fix came along and broke us up again.

Boo.

Since I started the 21 Day Fix Extreme a week ago, I was missing that sweet treat that I typically craved in the evening. Giving up those “treats” is tough, especially when they were already healthy. Yes, I could have my Shakeology at night and I did a few times, but it just wasn’t what I was craving. I wanted ice cream! 

{Fun Fact: I tend to crave ice cream when it’s cold out. I’m totally weird, I know.}

Tonight I remembered a while back I had experimented with ice cream and decided to try making it with my Shakeology!

The result was yumtastic and it’s simple to do. I decided to try a Chocolate Peanut Butter Shakeology Ice Cream, but I have plenty of ideas for other flavors.

 This totally satisfied my ice cream craving with zero guilt whatsoever!

It also fit my container counts which made it even better. This tallies up as 1 RED, 4tsps (add less peanut butter if you don’t have that many available) and 1/2  YELLOW since I only used 8 ozs of unsweetened almond milk.

You could absolutely turn this into flavor Shakeology you normally like to blend up. If you are not following the 6pm no yellow, no purple container rule (which I kinda broke by using almond milk, but I was afraid this would turn out like a sorbet with just water) you could use a frozen banana in this so it will be creamier.

Some flavors I plan to try:
All of the Girl Scout Cookie flavors I posted the other day. (This is basically the Tagalongs flavor)
Chocolate Covered Strawberry
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana
Mocha Fudge (add strong coffee and a splash of almond milk)

Currently I only have chocolate on hand and you could use any protein powder for this. There are some great flavors on the market too, like cake Batter, Fudge Brownie, Mint Chip and Cinnamon Roll, which would make flavoring even easier!

Have you ever turned your Shakeology or other protein into ice cream? If so, what flavor combo did you use?
