Who says pork rinds are just for savory snacks? Buckle up, dessert lovers!

We’re taking a bold step into the world of sweets with a dessert that’s sure to tickle your taste buds and boost your protein intake in one fell swoop.

Say hello to Pork Rind Protein Ice Cream—a delightful concoction that seamlessly blends the robust flavor of Southern Recipe Hot Honey Pork Rinds with the creamy richness of homemade protein ice cream.




Why Pork Rinds in Dessert?

Integrating pork rinds into a dessert may sound unconventional, but it’s all about innovation and adventure in the kitchen.

Pork rinds offer a crunchy texture that contrasts beautifully with the smoothness of ice cream, and our Hot Honey flavor adds just the right hint of sweetness spiced with a touch of heat.

This dessert is not just a treat; it’s an experience.

Ingredients for Pork Rind Protein Ice Cream:

  • 1/4 cup Southern Recipe Hot Honey Pork Rinds, crushed: The star ingredient that adds a crunchy texture and a sweet yet spicy flavor.
  • 12 oz whole milk: The base of our ice cream, providing richness and creaminess.
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder: Boosts the protein content, making this treat a perfect post-workout snack.
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla pudding mix: Enhances the texture and flavor, ensuring a smooth and creamy finish.
  • An ice cube tray: A simple tool to help freeze the mixture into easily blendable portions.

Easy Steps to Make Your Pork Rind Protein Ice Cream:

  1. Prepare the Base: Start by whisking together whole milk, vanilla protein powder, and vanilla pudding mix in a large bowl until well combined. This mixture is your ice cream base, packed with flavor and ready to be frozen.
  2. Freeze It Up: Pour the well-mixed base into an ice cube tray. Spread it evenly to ensure smooth freezing. Place the tray in the freezer and let it sit for about 12 hours, or until completely frozen. This step is crucial for achieving the perfect texture in your ice cream.
  3. Blend to Perfection: Once frozen, pop the ice cubes out of the tray and into a blender. Blend until the mixture reaches a creamy consistency, reminiscent of traditional ice cream. The secret here is to blend it enough so it’s smooth but still thick and creamy.
  4. Add the Crunch: Now for the fun part! Crush your Hot Honey pork rinds into small bits. Fold these crunchy bits into your creamy ice cream, distributing them evenly for a satisfying texture in every bite.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Serve your Pork Rind Protein Ice Cream immediately after mixing, or place it back in the freezer for a few minutes if you prefer a firmer texture. Dive in and enjoy the complex flavors and textures that make this dessert a standout.
