That's right... a healthy chocolate ice cream!

And it was an accident too... I was originally trying to make truffles, but the chocolate mixture never firmed up properly. At least I got something else out of the attempt :) Truffles are naturally made with only 2 ingredients: chocolate and heavy cream.  Since there is no place for heavy cream in my diet, I made a healthy alternative using soymilk and protein powder, which creates a thick texture similar to cream.

This is the unsweetened soymilk and blender cup I use:

This is the protein powder I use (I got it from Whole Foods):

Here are the nutrition facts:

Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream:  [low sugar, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(makes 2 servings)
   3/4 cup Unsweetened Soymilk
   60g (2 scoops) Vanilla Protein Powder (vegans, you can try using vegan protein powder, like Sun Warrior)
   6oz 90% Cacao Chocolate
   63g (3 tbs) Honey or Agave
   5-15 drops Stevia Extract (or to taste)

1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval
2. Put the soymilk and protein powder into a shaker cup and shake until the protein powder is absorbed (it should be creamy)
3. When the chocolate is melted, add 2 spoonfuls of the soymilk mixture into the chocolate bowl and stir
4. Pour more of the soymilk mixture (about half of the mixture) into the chocolate mixture and stir again
5. Add the rest of the soymilk mixture and the honey to the chocolate mixture
6. Put the bowl in the fridge for half an hour, then put it in the freezer until it is all frozen
7. Bring the bowl out of the freezer 10 minutes before eating to soften, enjoy!

1) Do not microwave the protein powder and soymilk together, it bakes into a gross cake patty (ew)
2) The ice cream melts pretty quickly, so scoop it into a cold bowl to slow the melting process... or just eat it like there's no tomorrow  :)


So share this with someone you love, or treat yourself to both servings :)
I did... hehe


  1. what a fabulous accidental recipe :) Lindt chocolate = the bomb! gorgeous photos too :)

  2. What a wondefully fabulous recipe! I love it and can't wait to make it, maybe I'll try it with my new ice cream maker :)


  3. Now I have an excuse to indulge. "It's healthy" :D

  4. Made this the other day. They did melt quickly! But that just gave me an excuse to eat it faster ;) It was very smooth and creamy

  5. Your recipe Is wonderful, silky and smooth. I omitted the stevia simply because I didn't have any on hand. I also subbed the choc for 4oz of 60%cacao Ghiradeli and added 1/2 Tbs. Of honey. Very versatile recipe, I can't wait to play around more. :D

  6. Wouldn't the whey in the protein powder make this a non-vegan recipe? Whey or Milk Serum is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained.

  7. Kathy, I put an asterisk (*) next to the protein powder and honey and left a note under the directions saying to use soy protein and agave

  8. Looks delicious! Quick question though, if I were to omit the protein powder all together do you think this recipe would still work? Thanks! :) xx

    1. Hi Angee! I'm sure the recipe would still work, but without the protein powder it will probably be less creamy and more icy. It will also be less sweet and less flavorful. If you want to try it without the protein I would recommend adding 1 tsp of vanilla paste (or extract) and more honey or agave (to 5-6 tbs, or to taste). Hope this works for you!
