The 30-Day Bigger Leaner Stronger Transformation
Ice cream has been with us for hundreds of years for the obvious reason:
It’s freaking delicious.
It’s the perfect indulgence on hot summer days, it makes just about every dessert even better, and it comes in almost every flavor you can think of.
It’s also something that’s usually bought in a store, but it doesn’t have to be.
As you’ll see, ice cream is surprisingly easy to make at home with nutritious ingredients like fresh fruit, yogurt, honey, nuts, and eggs, and these homemade vanilla ice cream recipes are a great place to start.
If you want something as close to soft-serve as possible, try the Vanilla Ice Cream with Honey. For a lower-calorie delight, definitely go with the Vanilla Banana Berry Protein Ice Cream. And if you want something simple and protein-packed, check out the Healthy Vanilla Protein Ice Cream.
Ice cream is already made with dairy, so you may as well add whey protein powder to the mix.
This protein ice cream recipe is so healthy that you can eat a full cup – that’s twice as much as a regular serving of ice cream, but with about half the calories. And instead of fat, you’re getting over 20 grams of protein.
32 oz. nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 can (12 oz.) fat-free evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla paste
2 tsp. stevia extract
1 tsp. natural butter flavor
4 scoops WHEY+ unflavored protein isolate
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. saltGet the Recipe
With both yogurt and milk, this recipe captures the best of frozen yogurt and ice cream. And this healthy ice cream recipe is also egg-free.
When you’re making homemade vanilla ice cream with no eggs, be sure to add a stabilizer like xanthan gum. That will ensure your eggless ice cream is still thick and creamy.
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup low-fat milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. vanilla crème stevia
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. saltGet the Recipe
Use your favorite cereal to quickly add flavor – and crunch – to simple vanilla ice cream.

2 1/2 cups skim milk
2 vanilla beans (about 4 tsp. vanilla extract)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. agave nectar (or honey)

This protein-packed frozen dessert is awesome in every way. And there’s no ice cream maker required to enjoy this vanilla protein ice cream.
Start with four ingredients, including cottage cheese and two kinds of fruit. Blend it together with vanilla whey protein powder, freeze, and then stir it every half hour or so until it’s thickened up enough to eat.
1 cup cottage cheese
1 big frozen banana
1/2 cup WHEY+ vanilla protein isolate
2 Tbsp. freeze-dried berriesGet the Recipe
Not only is this recipe easy, but you have three options to prepare this vanilla ice cream without a machine.
Freeze it in an ice cube tray, thaw for a few minutes, and mix in a high-powered blender. Or stash the ice cream in a shallow container, removing from the freezer to stir every 45 minutes until it’s thick. Lastly, ditch the bowl and use a popsicle mold for dessert on the go.
2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or nondairy creamer)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or xylitol)
Pinch of stevia
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extractGet the Recipe

If you’re looking for a simple ice cream that reminds of you eating soft serve, try this recipe.
Once it’s frozen, whip it real fast to incorporate extra air. It won’t be exactly the same, but you’ll have a low-fat classic vanilla ice cream that’s delicious whether you eat it plain or with your favorite toppings.
2 cups low-fat milk
1 cup half-and-half
1 vanilla bean
3/4 cup turbinado sugar
Dash of salt
2 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extractGet the Recipe
Instead of heavy cream, this recipe relies on sweetened condensed milk for that classic dessert flavor. And if you don’t have a can on hand, you can make your own in about 20 minutes.
Simmer skim milk on the stove, stirring it so it doesn’t boil over. The homemade condensed milk is ready when it thickens enough to reduce by half. When you make it yourself, it also means you can add your sweetener of choice.
1 1/2 tsp. unflavored gelatin
1 Tbsp. water
3 cups low-fat milk, divided
3 large egg yolks
1 can (14 oz.) nonfat sweetened condensed milk
1 vanilla beanGet the Recipe
An easy way to increase the nutrition of a classic vanilla ice cream recipe is to use a natural sweetener, rather than processed white sugar.
Choosing honey or agave syrup allows you to add less sugar overall. That’s because, while adding extra flavor to your homemade ice cream, they also pack more sweetness cup for cup.
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup pure honey
2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise and scraped
4 large egg yolks
1 Tbsp. vanilla extractGet the Recipe
Not all sugar-free vanilla ice cream is healthy. You still have to check how much fat is in it – and what kind.
This balanced dessert still has a touch of heavy cream, lightened up with both regular milk and almond milk. And keep it nutritious with a natural sugar replacer like stevia.
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 vanilla bean pod (or 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract)
4 droppers vanilla liquid stevia
Pinch of saltGet the Recipe
For healthy homemade vanilla ice cream, you can get even richer flavor and more nutrition with coconut milk instead of heavy cream.
Then this recipe takes it a step further by adding whey protein to the mix. Legion WHEY+ only uses the best quality ingredients, including xanthan gum which is a staple in ice cream recipes to make your frozen dessert even thicker and creamier.
1 3/4 cup (1 14-oz. can) coconut milk
1 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut beverage
1/3 cup pure honey
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 scoops WHEY+ unflavored protein isolateGet the Recipe
What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?
What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?
What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?
And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?
In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?
Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.
And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.
Well, I have good news.
All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.
You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.
