The best 3-ingredient Protein Banana Chocolate Chips Ice-Cream Cups you've ever had

If you ask me, it's a common misconception that a dessert has to be difficult to make and contain lots of fancy ingredients.

That's why I've got another stupid-simple dessert for you, which is so easy to make, it's downright dangerous. This time it's one of my favourite summer treats: Protein Banana Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream Cups. Who doesn't love ice-cream, right?

Well, banana "ice-cream" is quite a trend these days and as I made a batch the other day, I was thinking how could I make this even better. You already know from my low carb cheesecake bites that I love mini foods. And right there, it just dawned on me: Ice cream muffins!

I absolutely love them and I'm sure you will, too! So let me give you the recipe.

Ingredients

(for approx. 10 ice-cream cups)

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 60g chocolate chips
  • 30g vanilla protein powder (chocolate is awesome too!)

Instructions

Let's get right into it. Start with slicing and freezing 4 ripe bananas for about three hours (better would be over night).

Put the frozen bananas into a food processor, add a tiny splash of water and blend until smooth and creamy. Stir in the protein powder and 40-45g of chocolate chips. Mix well.

Now you can use either a mini muffin pan or silicon muffin cases (which I used). Scoop in the ice cream, each cup almost to the top and sprinkle each one with the rest of the chocolate chips.

Place the cups in the freezer for another hour and enjoy! If in the freezer for longer, let them sit outside for a while, before you consume them.

They're so easy and you have healthy treats ready when you crave them.

Another awesome fact: You can stock your freezer for a few weeks with them, as they can be easily stored there.
