Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Caramel Fleur de sel Protein Ice Cream

I am (unabashedly) the self-proclaimed queen of protein ice cream. ;-) I’ve developed dozens of recipes for a wide variety of flavors and textures, and dietary needs. Protein ice cream is easy to make, either in an ice-cream maker or in a ziploc baggie, and it fits in training nutrition – even competition diet! If you can make a protein shake, you can make ice cream.

Caramel Fleur-de-sel Protein Ice-Cream
Recipe by Chelle Stafford
Makes 1 serving

1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1 ½ scoop vanilla protein powder (minimum 20g protein per scoop, my scoop = 1/3 cup)
*optional: 10 drops Capella caramel drops & 12 drops Capella Vanilla Custard drops
*optional: 1 Tbsp coconut oil or melted butter
2 Tbsp, divided, sugar-free caramel sauce
Pinch of fleur-de-sel (flaked sea salt)

In a blender or magic bullet, blend the almond milk, protein powder, and capella drops (if using) until smooth.
Pour mixture into ice cream maker and turn on.
After 10 minutes, add 1 Tbsp caramel syrup, drizzling in to mix with the ice cream. Run for 10 more minutes or until ice cream reaches desired hardness.
Remove ice cream to bowl, top with remaining 1 Tbsp caramel and sprinkle on the sea-salt.

  1. I just read a blog featuring protein powder as ice cream. Having a healthy lifestyle should not be tiresome, it should be fun.
