Berry Nice Protein Icecream (with Secret Ingredient)

Who wants a boring post-work out shake when you could have berry protein icecream?!

This icecream has frozen bananas and berries to make it super thick and help you on your way to 5-a-day. There’s lucuma powder, which is an anti-inflammatory and helps to regulate hormones. Coconut water to restore electrolytes. Protein powder to help repair and build your muscles. And to top it off, the secret ingredient adds extra carbohydrates to fuel those muscles and makes it wonderfully creamy.

What the secret?

Sweetcorn!

This icecream is very filling so I would suggest you have it as a post-workout meal.

      Give it a go. I have a vitamix at my parents house with blends it super smooth, but the one I have at uni isn’t so good- it leaves chewy bits which is quite nice as well.
