Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - Here Comes The BOOM! Banana Cherry Protein Ice Cream

It's Leg Day. You know what that means... right? No, not the puking. No, not the crawling. It means that the post-workout fuel can have CARBS!!!!!!! Lol! Ok, seriously... I'm not the only one who looks forward to the heavy days just so I can have a little extra, right? Right?? Regardless... post workout nutrition is always important, but after completely draining those glycogen stores during a heavy session, it's imperative to get some quality sugar - and antioxidants - quickly (and as great-tasting as possible). Thankfully, your resident Protein-Ice-Cream-Empress (that would be me) has got you covered. ;-)

Today, I bring you... The Protein and Anti-Oxidant Post Workout BOOM...  You're welcome. ;-)

Banana Cherry Protein Ice Cream
Serves 1

1 banana, frozen
1/2 cup cherries, frozen
1.5 scoop Champion Performance Pure Whey (I used chocolate)
1/4 - 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (I used chocolate)

In a food processor, blend frozen banana and frozen cherries until grainy - about 1 minute.
Add protein powder (while still blending), then almond milk.
Continue to blend until smooth.
