I LOVE ice cream and frozen yogurt! Frozen yogurt is just the perfect snack to cool down when it’s hot here in sunny California. This is why I developed this healthy and yummy high-protein sugar-free Chocolate Greek Yogurt Ice Cream.
Before I came up with this recipe, I must have tried every brand of low-carb ice cream on the market, but none of them really taste like ice cream to me. They definitely don’t satisfy my ice cream cravings like this recipe does.
How to make sugar-free ice cream
The trick to making tasty high-protein, sugar-free ice cream is using protein powder to give both flavor and sweetness. I tried using chocolate flavored protein powder at first but quickly found out that you get a better flavor with vanilla protein powder and cocoa powder.
The protein powder I use is Met-Rx Vanilla. It’s great for both ice creams and baking because it has a very natural sweet vanilla flavor. When you combine it with cocoa powder, it (almost) tastes like real chocolate.
No ice cream machine, no problem!
I don’t have an ice cream machine so I just use my freezer. It’s very simple, but it does require you to be home for the first two hours to stir the ice cream periodically to break up the ice crystals and give the ice cream a smooth consistency. After that, you can leave it in the freezer for days before eating it.
I tend to make quite a large batch, so I have enough for a few days. The challenge is not to go crazy and eat it all at once because it’s so delicious 😀

This delicious Sugar-Free Chocolate Greek Yogurt Ice Cream is high in protein and low in calories. The perfect snack for a hot day or after a hard workout.
- 2.5 oz. (75 g) No fat Greek yogurt
- 0.5 oz. (15 g) Vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp. Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 0.5 cup (120 ml) Unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp. Stevia to taste
- Almonds & berries (optional)
Blend yogurt, protein powder, cocoa, stevia and almond milk thoroughly. If you don’t have a blender, this can be done by hand but requires a little work with a whisk.
Place in freezer or ice cream machine
If you don’t have an ice cream machine (which we don’t), take out the ice cream after an hour and turn it over gently with a spoon to avoid it becoming one big ice block. Do it again every 30 min. until it has the right consistency (it should take about 2 hours total).
You can either eat it right away (after the 2 hours) or keep it in the freezer for up to a week. If you leave it in the freezer, take it out 5-10 min before you serve it to let it soften up a bit.
Eat with almonds and fresh berries.
