Pizza and Ice Cream post weight loss surgery? Yes, you can!
One of the best combinations in the world is pizza & ice cream. It was one of my favorites in childhood and still is. Just because we had weight loss surgery doesn't mean we have have to be denied one of life's pleasures.
This is not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. We just have to be wise about how we enjoy. Pre-op it would have been a pint of Ben & Jerry's and 4 slices of Pizza Hut pizza. Not wise. Here's the wise and super yummy way I enjoy now...
Shelly's Artichoke Three Cheese Tortilla Pizza - Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla topped with Ricotta Cheese, Marinara Sauce, Artichoke Hearts (non-marinated), sprinkle of Parmesan, Mozzarella and Italian Seasonings.
Shelly's Brownie Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
4-6 Sugar Free Brownie Cookies, Crumbled
Mix together milk, protein, and syrup. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. If you don't have one just toss it in a blender on super high. You want it fluffy almost double in size. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add brownies to ice cream maker. 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.
If you double the batch of this or any of my Ice Cream recipes double everything but the protein powder... only so much we absorb per sitting so they say.
I topped my ice cream sundae with a drizzle of Sugar Free Hot Fudge and some crumbled SF Brownie bits. Heaven.
