Macro-friendly Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream Recipe

Peanut Butter + Chocolate + Protein in the form of ice cream? You heard that right.

Like all the protein ice cream recipes you will find on, this one is probably the size of your head. You could share this if you wanted to… but I doubt that you will once you taste it.

Low fat, high protein macro-friendly chocolate peanut butter protein ice cream! Takes just a few ingredients and tastes like peanut butter chocolate soft serve ice cream! 37g protein / 13g carbs / 6g fat

The Good Stuff:

Protein Ice Cream:

1 scoop chocolate peanut butter protein powder (I recommend Select Protein)

260ml of vanilla unsweetened 30 calorie almond milk (or dairy of your preference)

5g unsweentened cocoa powder

24g powdered peanut butter (best place to buy: Powdered Peanut Butter – but any kind will work!)

2-3g xanthan gum (best place to buy: Xanthan Gum)

3-5g splenda if needed

220g of ice

optional goodies:


14g mini baking reeses pieces


  1. Combine ingredients into Nutribullet, beginning with the ice on the bottom.
  2. Blend up with smooth, and then some. It should be one consistent smooth texture – similar to soft serve ice cream or a little thicker.
  3. Pour out into a bowl and mix in all the goodies!


Without toppings: 6g fat, 14g carbs, 37g protein. 260 calories.

With toppings: 10g fat, 24g carbs, 37g protein


Add a tablespoon of peanut butter to add even more flavor!

To lower the fat content, simply omit some of the goodies for something else.

To lower carb content, you may decrease the powedered PB to 1 tablespoon and/or any of the goodies.

Customize this however you’d like to fit your macros.

  • How are the fat and carbs lower WITH toppings than without? Typo maybe?
    • Hi Connie! Thanks for pointing this out for me. This was definitely a typo, which I have corrected now. :)
