Strawberry Banana Protein Ice-cream, Magic Bullet Review, & Video

Hey guys, how was your weekend? I hope it was good!

Yesterday, I was pretty much alone all day, so I was busy making recipes, videos, and writing posts for the week. Do you feel like you get a lot done when everyone stays away from you all day? Moving on, I wanted to do something special for my review of the Magic Bullet, so I decided to make a quick video on the spotlight recipe + what I think of the bullet.

Also, I will post my a sorbet recipe I made that is perfect for summer!

Am I just on a roll of what with all these recipes! Creative ideas are coming my way! Let’s hope it stays this way…

Check out the video here!

Strawberry banana protein icecream

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients in your Magic Bullet until completely smooth
  • Pour into a container
  • Freeze for 30 minutes
  • Eat in the container or on a cone
  • NOTE: If you eat it on a cone, it tastes better if after you fill your cone with ice-cream, freeze it for about 15 more minutes!

The Magic Bullet is great for making quick smoothies, grinding oats, ice-cream, sorbets, even cupcake batter—> Paleo Cupcakes

You can also use the lower blade to grind your nuts and seeds like I did with my pecan/currant mixture for my Super Food Breakfast Bar

Oh man, fresh made ice-cream in 90 degree humid weather might be the best thing! Can’t beat something cold when it’s boiling hot outside! Anyone with me here?

So, what do you think about this ice-cream recipe? Do you think you will try it?

Let me know if you watched the video!

As I promised in the video, here’s the recipe for the Sorbet! I noticed, that eating something like this, keeps me from craving actual ice-cream that’s filled with sugar and HFCS. If you’re looking for something to fix that sweet tooth late at night, you might as well go out with a nutritious and satisfying dessert, right?
