Pizza & Ice Cream

One of my favorite combos when I was a whippersnapper. Still is. Here's a weight loss surgery friendly version of Pizza & Ice Cream but soooo yummy you will never miss the real deal...

My dinner last night...


Shelly's Meatball & Pepperoni Tortilla Pizza - Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla topped with Marinara, a sliced Turkey Meatball (I use Foster Farms Turkey Meatballs nuked about a minute & 1/2 first), Pepperoni, Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, a sprinkle of Parmesan and Italian Seasoning.

Mmmm and this was dessert during Glee...

Shelly's Oatmeal Cookie Protein Ice Cream Cake

You need:
Stainless Food Ring
Protein Ice Cream
Sugar Free Cookies (I used these)
Sugar Free Torani Syrup

Amounts will vary based on how big a cake you make.

Crush Sugar Free Cookies (I used Sugar Free Oatmeal ones) and add enough SF Syrup (I used SF Vanilla) to make it clump. I needed about 8 cookies and 1 Tablespoon of Syrup. Place food ring on a plate. Fill base with cookie mixture and press to cover bottom (about 1/2 to 1 inch high) Protein bars would work for the base too.

Fill with Cinnamon Protein Ice Cream you get right out of the ice cream machine (soft serve stage)

Shelly's Cinnamon Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup (on sale now)
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Mix together milk, protein, cinnamon 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. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish (this is the stage you use for Ice Cream Cake making) for scoop-able put it in the freezer to set for an hour. After 2 hours or so you will need to nuke for 25 sec or so to bring back to scoops. 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.

Cover with plastic wrap and freeze till hard.

Unmold. I used a warm (nuked 20 seconds) damp dish towel to warm sides and the ring just lifts off.

Decorate if desired. I topped with Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a drizzle of Sugar Free Smuckers Caramel Topping. My cake makes 4 BIG wedges.

Any other Gleeks (Glee Geeks) out there? I love it. Well and any show that plays two Journey songs in it's premiere episode has me at hello. Yeah and that would be Journey when it was JOURNEY 'cause Journey isn't Journey without Steve Perry. Hear that Oprah. Ha. Rachael yesterday, Oprah today... watch out Martha.

GLEEEE! It just seems like it should be sung or screamed in girly excitement. It's a total high school flashback including the chorus teacher look alike to my own. Next week I'm making cinnamon ice cream for it - spounds great!

I love Glee! And Pizza and ice cream...I'm so there in a few more months. :)

I do have to say that you are an EBP..enabler by proxy. I bought popsicle molds and a heart shaped silicone mold for the egg dish you made. :) hahahah

I also used the barbecue all by myself yesterday...tons of yummy proteins (they needed sauce, but I'm not saying that's *my* fault hahaha) I'm moving up in the world!

Thanks M
