As the weather continues to heat up, why not enjoy some delicious Fitbitch gelato that won’t ruin your healthy eating habits?
We’ve been experimenting with a few recipes at Fitbitch HQ this summer – and I’m confident that we will be experimenting with a few more!
Don’t worry, protein powder will not suddenly make you sprout muscles. It simply helps you to repair and rebuild muscles that have been worked through exercise in order to create tone. Or if you haven’t exercised, it has the benefit of making you feel fuller for longer.
Of course, there are lots of delicious fruit and coconut based recipes that you can you devise for ice lollies and ice ‘creams’ too. So make sure you check back or subscribe to the blog if you want to get these straight to your inbox when we post.
Chocolate & Raspberry Ice Cream
One scoop of protein powder
200-250ml Rude Health almond milk
Handful of frozen raspberries, more if you wish
Dash of water if needed
Whizz in a food processor until fully combined and then pour into an ice cream or individual blancmange mould. Freeze overnight and serve.
Blueberry, apple & ginger
OK, so it’s not an ice cream but it’s like drinking a delicious cocktail in ice form!
Handful of frozen blueberries
Juice of one apple and inch stub of ginger
Combine in a food processor, pour into a mould and freeze.
To help ease any of these out of their moulds, leave at room temperature for ten minutes. Or you can dip quickly into a cup of boiling water.
