Easy Greek Yogurt PROTEIN Ice Cream Cake

Greek Yogurt Protein Ice Cream Cake Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Three things we can probably all agree on? It’s summer, it’s hot, and protein ice cream cake is (almost) always delicious. Oh, you’ve never had protein ice cream cake!? Well today is the day that you try it! The best part? All you need is a couple ingredients and might already have them on hand!

Start this one with either a food processor or blender. Add into it 1 banana, 1/4 cup of light cream, 2 ounces of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of brown rice syrup, 3 containers of Greek yogurt, 3 scoops of vanilla protein powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum.

Process or blend those together for couple minutes, you should see it thicken up. Once it thickens up take out a bread pan. Line your pan with some optional parchment paper so it’s easier to take out and add your mix in.

Layer Time

We’re gonna add on our graham cracker layer. I like to use some crushed up pre-made mini pie crusts but you don’t have to. If you want a healthier alternative, you can use some graham cracker crumbs. Both are delicious!

For the last layer of this protein ice cream cake you’ll wanna mix together another container of Greek yogurt and 1 cup of a fruit. Fresh or frozen both work. When mixing these together make sure to mash in your fruit. Using fresh fruit definitely makes this part easier.

Add that delicious fruit layer on top and smooth it out. Cover it and throw it in the freezer for a few hours. Make sure to let it thaw for 5-10 minutes before diving in!

This one is fun and when you get bored you can easily switch up the flavor of your protein ice cream cake. How? By using any flavor Greek yogurt or protein powder you want, as long as it compliments the fruit you’re using.

Don’t like the macros here? You can also change those up by using reduced or fat free ingredients to cut down on the calories. Think outside the box!
