Get set to smash your summer protein goals with an ice-cold treat.

Looking for a deliciously refreshing way to hit those protein intake goals during the warmer weather? We’ve got you covered with these no-fuss, healthy homemade ice cream options. They’re every bit as sweet and creamy as the real thing but come with a fraction of the calories as we’ve switched in low-fat yogurt and cut out any added sugar.

We’ve gone for three classic combinations — rich chocolate peanut butter, silky white chocolate & raspberry, and juicy watermelon.

It’s super easy for you to mix up the flavors and toppings with whatever extras you fancy too — get experimenting with nuts, berries and chopped fruit, or even pieces of your favorite protein bars.

We recommend always having a tub on standby for sunny days.

Each recipe serves 2


Chocolate Peanut Butter:

White Chocolate & Raspberry:

Juicy Watermelon:


1) Add the milk, yoghurt, and whey protein to a blender and blitz until smooth. Pour into a freezer-safe container or tub.

2) Add any extras that you are using — Peanut Butter Cup chunks, fresh raspberries, or Sugar-Free Syrup are a great shout.

3) Freeze for at least 4 hours, then serve with your favorite toppings. Or just grab a spoon and get straight in there, no judging.
