One of the yummiest things to eat during summer is ice cream. Here is a healthy recipe for Protein Ice cream that can be easily incorporated as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Summer Protein Ice Cream
1.5 x frozen bananas (medium sized, approx 140g without skin)
200g of frozen pineapple (I remove skin and chop fresh into chunks because it is easy to portion)
60g serve protein powder
(I used The All Natural Company WPI)
2 x heaped tbsp (approx 50g) Yoghurt
(I used Jalna Biodynamic full fat, low lactose) OR for Dairy free option use CoYo (coconut yoghurt)
2 x heaped tbsp organic coconut (or dessicated)
1/4 cup water (might need a little more)
1. Place frozen and chopped banana and pineapple into blender, food processor or Thermomix. I chopped for 5 seconds speed 9 (high speed).
2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with spatula.
3. Add protein powder, coconut and mix again (speed 6 for 3 seconds). Then scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
4. Add yoghurt and water and mix for 10 seconds. Then use a whipping attachment, and mix for 1 minute on speed 3 (low speed on normal blender or food processor.)
Serves 2-3 people (depending on how much you like to eat!!)
** I prefer to eat it like soft serve consistency. If you like it firmer texture place into freezer for 30 minutes prior to serving.
** Delicious variation: add the juice of a fresh lime, plus 1 tbsp rice malt syrup to the mix in the final step!
** Protein Powder is optional but as I always say with any food/supplement – if you cannot understand the ingredient list – do not use it. This brand can be purchased from the link above and enter “Amelia” at checkout for free delivery and 10% discount.

I run Living Beauty personal training in South Australia with global reach via on line training. I have trained over 35 fitness/bikini models to success on the competition stage and trained many Champions who have competed Nationally and become published models in Aussie Fitness Magazines. I have also trained many women to attain their:
Ultimate Bride Body or have educated them with packages for a
Post Baby Shape Up or general Shape Up for Life.
I love all food theories: paleo, raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free,
but I prefer a combination of these approaches for overall health. I also believe in training with 110% energy and living a healthy lifestyle every day of the year.
If you eat crap food and don’t train sometimes, that’s ok, perfection is boring and no one is perfect. What matters is what you do MOST of the time and small steps of continuous improvement.

I dislike seeing people waste money on gimmicks. I want people to be healthy and understand that fitness and healthy living can be a fun long term lifestyle.
