Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


  • 3 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 2 cups almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 4 scoops Metabolic Drive® Vanilla (120g)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, organic
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Slice bananas and freeze them. Speckled bananas work best.
  2. Add frozen bananas and all other ingredients to a blender or food processor.
  3. Blend until smooth or leave slightly chunky for texture.
  4. Pour into a container and freeze. Should be ready to eat in a couple of hours.

Protein Powder Ice Cream

Now, you don't have to freeze the bananas first. That can make the mixture harder to blend if you don't have a great blender or food processor. It'll just take a little longer to freeze into ice cream.

Option: Replace the vanilla protein with strawberry Metabolic Drive® Protein. Leave out the chocolate chips and toss in a few fresh or frozen strawberries. Boom... strawberry-banana ice cream.

Note: Not all protein powders are created equal. If you use other brands, you'll get different results. This recipe was made using a gourmet whey/casein blend, Metabolic Drive® Protein, which has been specially designed to work as a shake and in recipes.
