What’s not to love?!
This heavenly Paleo Chocolate Banana Cookie Dough Ice Cream is out-of-this-world, crazy good!
What if I told you this luscious chocolate banana cookie dough ice cream is perfect for a post-workout extra special treat?
This ice cream is packed with protein, superfoods and electrolytes which makes it a fun post-workout meal, a great mid-day snack or an afternoon treat.
Now, I’ll be quite honest. My workouts mostly consist of running around after my youngest and getting a “workout” vacuuming and steam-mopping the entire house. I am all about healthy eating and natural health, but exercise is an area that I need to work on.
My husband on the other hand, he hasn’t missed a workout for one day in several years. I have never not seen him train.
He trains hard! I’m talking pouring sweat, intense, MMA-jiu jitsu-boxing, how-in-the-world-are-you-doing-that kind of workouts.
That being said, I don’t want him reaching for some synthetic, junky, protein post-workout supplement.
Thankfully, he hasn’t used any of those kinds of protein supplements in ages. When he learned about the synthetic and chemical ingredients that are in most of the mainstream protein pre and post-workout supplements, he stopped using them immediately.
When you’re working out, you need wholesome, REAL ingredients that fuel your body and taste good too.
No one wants to drink or eat something that tastes awful after exercising.
I am thrilled to have learned about Rootz Paleo Protein Superfood, a delicious tasting, healthy protein supplement.
My husband loves the chocolate banana nut flavor of this protein powder. It’s one of the best tasting protein powder supplements that he’s ever tried. It has a tiny hint of cinnamon that comes through the chocolate flavor, which he really loves.
Most importantly, he LOVES how Rootz Paleo Protein-Superfood makes him feel. It gives him a great burst of energy, from clean, wholesome ingredients.

Usually my husband just mixes the Rootz Paleo Protein-Superfood into a quick shake and he’s good to go. But I like to mix things up from time to time.
I wanted to surprise him with an extra special treat, especially since it’s starting to warm up here in Northern California.
Ice cream!!! The perfect treat for hot weather! And … the perfect treat after a workout. Of course I had to make the ice cream a little more fancy and add some optional grain free cookie dough in there. Because, why not?
You can leave it out if you want, but I highly recommend it.
