Feed Your Muscles With This High-Protein Homemade Ice Cream

Why reach for a plain, boring protein bar or shake post-workout when you can have ice cream instead? Blend together some almond butter, protein powder, milk, and water, and you've got this sweet, cool semifreddo - a semi-frozen treat that has a consistency halfway between ice cream and mousse - that not only tastes amazing, but also boasts 29 grams of protein.
 

Once blended, the mixture has to freeze for a few hours before it's ready to eat, so be sure to whip it up at night or in the morning before you go to the gym.
 

What You Need:

1 Tbsp unsalted almond butter

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup 2 percent milk
 

How to Do It:

1. Use a blender or food processor to blend all the ingredients until the consistency is smooth.

2. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze until relatively firm, about 3 hours. Makes 1 serving.

Per serving: 248 calories, 29g protein, 5g sugar, 12g fat
