Protein Ice Cream Recipes: When life gives you lemons...

When life gives you lemons... you make Lemon Meringue Pie Protein Ice Cream. I made a batch of this for dessert last night... well and ummm breakfast this morning. Soooo good. This one would be especially great after a seafood dinner.

Shelly's Lemon Meringue Pie Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Jello Instant Lemon Pudding Powder, dry
a few drops of Lemon Extract (careful a little goes a long way)
4-6 Sugar Free Lemon Cookies (I used these), broken in pieces
Optional: a little fresh Lemon Zest

Mix together milk, protein, pudding mix, extract and optional zest. 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. 1 minute before done add the crumbled cookies (the faux pie crust.) 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.

I topped it with a little squirt of No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream.

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream, yummy!

5 mile bike ride, I agree I hope the seat is comfy.

I can now too paint my toenails without gasping for breath, I just don't. The smell of fingernail polish gives me a migraine. Does the polish not do the same for you? I guess that is not one of your triggers.

Can't wait to see a pic of your bike! I think you need to do a video on your ice cream. I swear I can't get mine to look like yours EVER! So frustrating!!! ;)
