To maintain the texture and flavor of your Protein Ice Cream:

  • Air-Tight Container: Store the ice cream in a sealed, air-tight container to prevent ice crystals from forming and preserve its creamy consistency.


  • Freezer Placement: Place the ice cream at the back of the freezer where temperatures are more consistent, avoiding frequent exposure to warm air when the freezer door is opened.
