Fit Ingredients (Basic Recipe)

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 c fruit
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • sweetener to taste
  • 5-6 cups ice

Directions

1. Place your milk, fruit and protein powder into the bottom of the blender**.

2. Add in your ice.

3. Blend on the highest speed for 2-3 minutes (it should begin to fluff up).

4. You may need to scrape down the sides and give it a quick mix in the middle to make sure it is all incorporated.

5. Pour the mixture into a container.

Now, you have 2 options:

A) You can eat it right away. It will be thick, but will melt quicker.

B) You can put it in the freezer for 30-40 minutes and give it a mix every 10 minutes or so to make it more ice cream like.

**This recipe requires the use of a high speed blender such as the ninja or a vitamix.**

That’s it! Soooo simple! This recipe makes about 7-8 cups of frozen yogurt! If you’re like me, you will eat it all in one sitting! haha Or you could be nice and share so with a loved one! πŸ˜‰

  • Ahhhh, if only I had a Vitamix! My fav ice cream is cookie dough, but I usually go for plain vanilla protein.

    Think I like coconut milk ice cream from the store more though πŸ™‚

    Maybe would try it if I had a ninja…but they are super expensive, so I got a magic bullet instead — guess that wouldn’t work..too bad!

    The protein powder is a 30 gram scoop? (like 4-5 tbsps. of protein?).

  • I love that you’re using pumpkin even though it’s still summer. And I don’t even mean that in a sarcastic way, I freakin love pumpkin!!

  • OK, will you send me a Vitamix! I promise I will make my own nut butters too! πŸ˜‰

    GREAT RECIPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fall is a coming!

    I use vanilla protein powder most since it is easy to add into recipes & then flavor it from there…. I like a lot of brands… DW, MetRX, Dynmatize & more!

    I don’t eat ice cream anymore but as a kid – Mocha Chip from back east & coffee!!!!!!!!!!!
