Shakeology Superfood Ice Cream

You scream, we scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM! I've been on a dessert recipe kick recently and rightfully so, because between this Shakeo ice cream and the pumpkin banana cookies from last week I definitely been able to fulfill my massive sweet tooth cravings. 

This recipe is incredibly easy to whip up in a craving pinch and you get your daily dose of dense nutrition at the same ice cream ;) OK sign me up!

What the heck is Shakeology?? Shakeology is a dense, all-natural superfood shake that gives you the nutritional equivalence of 5 PLATES of salad! It's essentially a bunch of ground up superfoods, vitamins and minerals all packed into one meal. It's helps curb your appetite (naturally - with no icky fake fillers), increases your energy, improves digestion & helps you lose and maintain weight! It also helps you save money by replacing it with one meal per day...SCORE!!! Side note: feel free to shoot me an email if you're curious to learn more about Shakeology and if it's right for you!

Recipe (makes one serving):

  • 1 large frozen banana
  • Up to 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla cashew milk (or almond milk, but cashew is better! Silk makes a great one that's *new*!)
  • 1/2 scoop of chocolate shakeology
  • 1 tsp nut butter (I prefer almond)

Here's what you need to do... 

  1. Chop up the frozen banana (the smaller the easier it will be...but watch those fingers of yours, they can be slippery suckers!) 
  2. Put the chopped bananas in a food processor, pulse, and start adding a tablespoon of milk at a time in between pulses. The better your food processor, the easier this will be - I have a little "mini" one that isn't too powerful, so in order to get the bananas to a smoother consistency, I have to keep adding more and more milk. 
  3. Once your bananas have reached a thick and smooth texture, add in the nut butter & chocolate shakeology and continue to blend until well incorporated. 
  4. Stick in the freezer for about 15 minutes to solidify - if it needs more time to thicken up, stir around at the 15 minute mark and keep it in for a total of 30 minutes or so.
  5. Top with your favorite fruit (or rainbow sprinkles if you're feeling sassy!) and enjoy!
