Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Green Tea Protein Ice Cream!

Ya'll know how much I love my protein ice cream ;-) I mean, what's not to love? It's ice cream - creamy, cold, flavorful - and I get to stay on track with my diet? YES! If you have room in your diet for a protein shake, you've got room for my protein ice cream.

While on our EPIC vacation, I was served this luscious dessert - little flaky pastries with chestnut and red bean filling, served alongside green-tea ice cream (and drizzled with caramel - yum!). I knew I was going to have to recreate it to make it both clean and "diet"-friendly... the pastries I am still working on, but the ice-cream is good to go!

You can adjust the amount of green-tea to hit your own flavor spot, and if you have room for the honey, it's worth it! If you're no-sugar, then sub in some stevia for a bit of sweetness... and as always, everything is improved by a drizzle of sugar-free caramel, yes? ;-)

Chelle's Green-Tea Protein Ice Cream

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1.5 scoop (my scoop = 1/3 cup) vanilla protein powder (I used Champion Nutrition's Pure Whey)
1 tsp Matcha Green Tea powder (I found it at Whole Foods and Sprouts)
1 tsp honey

(for ziploc instructions, visit this post)
Blend all ingredients in a blender or magic bullet.
Pour into ice cream maker and let it run about 20 minutes.
Remove to a bowl and enjoy!
