Shelly's Tiramisu Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 scoop Click Espresso Protein (If you don't have Click 1 scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder plus a 1/2 teaspoon of Instant Espresso Powder would work)
1/4 cup Mascarpone Cheese
1 Tablespoon Kahlua (yeah I used the real deal but you could also use DaVinci's SF Kahlua Syrup)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
Mix Mascarpone, Kahlua and SF Syrup Together. Mix together milk and protein powders together. 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 flavored mascarpone. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer to set for an hour or so.
After it set for an hour I used a small ice cream scoop to make Mini Protein Ice Cream Sandwiches with my favorite Newman's Own Organic Cinnamon Sugar Soy Crisps. I left these plain but you could roll the sides in crushed nuts or toasted unsweetened coconut for a different look and taste. Eat them right away or toss them back in the freezer. These are like little bites of heaven. Soooo good!
Whenever I think of Tiramisu I think of that scene in "Sleepless in Seattle" where Jay (Rob Reiner) is helping Sam (Tom Hanks) get back into the dating scene.
Sam Baldwin: What is "tiramisu"?
Jay: You'll find out.
Sam: Well, what is it?
Jay: You'll see!
Sam: Some woman is gonna want me to do it to her and I'm not gonna know what it is!
