Champion Nutrition USA - Weekly Recipe! Purple Ice Cream!

Ok, I know Summer is over, but... I'm in Arizona and we're still in the 90's here. Consider this one a last hurrah at ice-cream season :-)  Plus, the purple color is really fun!
Sorry about the melty photo...
I forgot to grab my camera right away! Oops!

For the blueberries....
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla (pure) extract.

Directions:
Place blueberries in a sauce pan with the water and cook over medium heat until reduced down to a "syrup" (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and add vanilla (pure) extract.
Stir, and set aside or refrigerate until needed.

For the Ice Cream...
1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
1 1/2 scoops Chocolate protein powder (my scoop = 1/3 cup)
1 Tbsp natural almond butter
1/2 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt

Directions:
Blend all ingredients.
Add about half of the blueberry sauce, reserving the rest for topping.
Blend again, just until the color spreads through the mixture.
Add to ice cream maker, following manufacturer's instructions. Mine takes about 20 minutes.
Scoop ice cream into a bowl, top with reserved fruit syrup and enjoy!

FYI... you can do this with any fruit! Sub out the blueberries for whatever is in season or handy!

  2. Skip the protein powder then and up the greek yogurt to 1 cup :-) I've tried it that way, too, and it turns out great!
