Tired of the same old protein shake after workouts? Try refueling with recovery “ice cream” which will deliver a mix of carbohydrates and protein to refuel tired muscles - plus the peanut butter adds healthy fats!

Now the reason we put ice cream in quotes is that our taste testers said while yes, it is a frozen treat, it isn’t truly ice cream! Either way, it is perfectly refreshing and a delicious recovery option.


Serves 1


1 frozen banana, broken into pieces (peel removed)
1 scoop (25.8 g) Klean Athlete Isolate Natural Vanilla
1 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
1/4 cup water or milk


  1. In a blender combine the frozen banana, protein powder, peanut butter, and water or milk. If needed, add additional water to ease blending. Blend until creamy and smooth with an ice cream-like texture.

Tips: this works best with a high speed blender like Ninja or Vitamix. Make this ahead and freeze until you are ready to enjoy.
