What if instead of having a protein shake after a good workout you can have a bowl of Homemade Keto Ice Cream with protein???
I have tried many “Keto” ice creams that you can buy at the store but to me, they all taste yuck! They are kind of like eating rice cakes while on a diet in the olden days, every bite reminds you, you’re on a diet.

I came up with this recipe while I was having one of my meal replacement shakes after a long walk.
Every time I have one of these shakes I feel like I’m cheating because they taste so good.
So I thought, “Why not make Keto ice cream with it?”
And then I thought, ‘How about a Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream, my favorite!’
About Life Recovery Wellness Meal Replacement Protein Shake
You’re not going to buy this just to make this ice cream, you’re going to buy this to have after your work-outs or if you need a quick healthy meal. I have it for breakfast almost every morning.
The difference between LRW’s (Life Recovery Wellness) meal replacement and protein powder is the meal replacement has time-released proteins that nourish your muscles for 4 hours.
One 3 LB container has 30 servings and will last you 30 days. In my opinion, that’s less expensive than many out there and let me tell you, it tastes amazing! As I said, I feel like I’m cheating every time I have one.
Here’s why I’ve chosen this brand. I really am hooked and won’t go without it.
It’s a perfect blend that uses 3 highly absorbent proteins composed of whey, egg, and casein released over time.
There are 11 grams of carbohydrates which is required to get the protein absorbed into the bloodstream, in which sugar is only 3 grams. This is where 99 percent of the available shakes fall short. There are 5.5 grams of fiber that very few shakes use as well. That will give you 7 net carbs per serving. Not bad at all!
Additionally, 6 grams of MCT oil is mixed into the powder which is an incredibly healthy fat. MCT oil supports, absorbs and boosts your immune system with joint support.
There is absolute NO SOY PROTEIN. Soy protein is believed to elevate levels of estrogen and increase breast and testicular cancer risks.
This product blends in as little as 4 oz of fluid and does not require a blender. This makes it the most convenient way to get your meal in if you’re a busy person like me.
Here’s why LRW Meal Replacement has the most advanced protein recipe available…
- A mix of the 7 most powerful proteins to improve lean muscle.
- Digestive enzymes to optimize protein absorption.
- Fast and slow digestive proteins to nourish muscles for 4 hours.
- Complex carbohydrates and healthy oils for superior results.
- High in BCAAs and Important Amino Acids.
- You get Optimal Protein, Complex Carbs, and Healthy Oils ratio that combines an optimal combination of complex carbohydrates and healthy oils to enable prolonged amino acid release.

Homemade Keto Ice Cream Recipe
Before you make this ice cream you’re going to need an electric ice cream maker. I always keep the bowl part in the freezer so it’s ready anytime I get a hankering to make ice cream.
4 Scoops LRW Italian Sweet Cream Meal Replacement – Don’t forget to use the coupon code BLOSSOM for a 5% discount.
4 Tbsp Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener
2 13.5 oz Cans Coconut Cream
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
2 Scoop Collagen – I get mine from Thrive Market Collagen but any good quality will do.
8oz Cream Cheese (softened)
1 Cup Strawberries (diced)
Very important: Make sure the bowl part of your electric ice cream maker has been in the freezer for at least 24 hours. As I said earlier, that’s where I always keep it so it’s always ready.
Place the cans of coconut cream in the refrigerator so they are cold when you’re ready to use them.
Place the block of cream cheese on the counter for a few hours to soften.
Once you’ve done everything above, place all the ingredients except the diced strawberries in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer until it’s blended well. You can also use a Vitamix or blender to do this.
After the ingredients are well-blended pour in the ice cream maker bowl (already inserted in the ice cream maker). Place the churner in, cover then turn it on.
Take a peek at it every so often to see consistency. Once you see ice cream forming, go ahead and add your strawberries just like in the video below.
That’s how you make Homemade Strawberry Cheesecake Keto Ice Cream With Protein. It’s delicious, your whole family will love it!
