This ice-cream has a secret. What? A whole can of beans. HORROR! Most people think: that sounds vile. But, you can NOT taste the beans and second of all, they’re what makes this so deeply chocolaty and creamy. Don’t believe us? Try it.
1 can black beans
2-3 scoops whey protein powder
2 tablespoons 100% cocoa powder
1 shot espresso (optional but WOW: amazing)
1. All you got to do is stick it in the blender, taste a bit of it with a spoon (if it’s not sweet enough for your taste, add some sweetener or honey/agave to it).
2. Put it in a Tupperware for 30 minutes, take it out and give it a mix with a spoon (or fork or even a spork if you’re so inclined), put it back in for another 30.
3. Then you’re all done a tupparware-full of dark chocolate ice-cream!

Warning: Don’t eat all the ice cream in one go. Yes, it’s that good. No, it’s not hard to find yourself eating it all in one sitting but remember: 17.9g of fibre.

Wow!! I’ve made black bean brownies with success but ice cream?? your a genius!
black bean brownies are great! the whole black bean + cocoa is a revolution really. At first I was one of those people thinking “yuck!” but all I had to do was try it once and bam – hooked.
18 g of FIBER LOL. That would be very bad for me!! Looks awesome though!
i know! hehehe ‘live and learn’ for some of us! 😉
Thank you Anna! for this delicious ice cream I’m loving it!
Because the normal ingredients (fat & sugar) in ice cream,I hadn’t eaten it in so long time ago but now..thanks to you!! mmm I can’t stop eating it! so delicious. Chocolate, coffee,ice cream.. this is the best!
Yay!!! so happy to hear!!!! xx :-))))
Is it possible to use different kind of beans? They are hard to find in denmark.
It’s possible that any bean will do (any bean canned in NONSALTED water). Make sure they’re fat beans though (i.e. beans with a good amount of ‘meat’) so if you can’t get black beans, get butter beans or azuki beans?
This was sooo delicious it tastes like a chocolate covered espresso bean 😀
Quest bars have 17g fiber a pop. No problemo here 😀
