Blueberry protein ice cream tips
The 90 minutes freezing time allows for a soft serve type of ice cream. If you leave it in the freezer for much longer than 90 minutes and it becomes very hard, allow it to thaw at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving.
If you’re looking for a clean, smooth whey protein to use, we love this organic whey protein from Natural Force.
ShiftSetGo Full Spectrum Collagen would also be another excellent addition to this nutrient-dense ice cream!
