Blueberries have soooo many health benefits including the highest antioxidant level of any fruit. The FDA or USDA (one of those acronyms) put out a report that said blueberries may also have anti-aging properties. Apparently little mice fed blueberries for a period of time were sharper at mice tasks than blueberry-less mice. <:3 br="">Looks like I got your fountain of yoot right here, baby.
Shelly's Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Cheesecake Jello Pudding Mix, dry
1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla), divided use
1 Tablespoon Water
1 cup fresh Blueberries (yields 1/2 cup of blueberry goo after cooking)
Mix blueberries, water and 1 Tablespoon of the syrup. Heat until blueberries begin to burst about 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool. I pop it in the freezer while the ice cream churns.
Mix together milk, protein, 1 Tablespoon syrup, pudding mix, and cream cheese. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the blueberry goo. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer (in a Tupperware) to set for an hour or so.
July is National Blueberry Month.
