My protein ice cream recipes do not use added sugars or artificial sweeteners. The only sugar you'll have in these, is from fruit, if you choose to use it. The fats I've used and recommend are: peanut butter (natural), almond butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, real butter, and flavored oils. There are all kinds of fun combinations you can make! I use extracts freely, as well, as they add tons of flavor without changing the nutritional profile of the ice-cream. This tastes like a treat... truly! Creamy and amazing, I've enjoyed my protein powder ice cream nightly while I prep for my Figure Competition!
