Here's some proof these protein ice cream cakes are easy to make: I made this cake one-handed. My sister called me to wish me a Happy Birthday as I was making it. I guess I could have told her I'd call her back but I just kept on chatting away phone in one hand, ice cream cake making going on with the other. I think it came out pretty cute despite the lack of a hand. It definitely tasted yummy!
Yep, I made a wish!
Nope, I can't tell... you know the rules ;)
Shelly's Strawberry Protein Ice Cream Cake
Stainless Food Ring
Protein Ice Cream
Sugar Free Cookies (I used these)
Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Almond)
Optional toppings: Smucker's SF Strawberry Topping
Land o Lakes SF Whipped Cream
Amounts will vary based on how big a cake you make.
Crush Sugar Free Cookies and add enough SF Syrup 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.) My protein fudge would work great for the base too.
Fill with Protein Ice Cream you get right out of the machine (soft serve stage) 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 used Strawberry Topping and SF Whipped Cream. Other options: Sugar Free Hot Fudge Sauce, Nuts, Fresh or Frozen Fruit, Crushed SF Candy.
My cake makes 4 big wedges. Great for a post-op birthday celebration.
The Protein Ice Cream flavor I used...
Shelly's Strawberry Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops of Strawberry Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Strawberry)
4 Strawberries, mashed
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. Add strawberries about 5 minutes before done. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish (use it at this stage for Protein Ice Cream Cake making) if you want scoops put it in the freezer to set for an hour. After that hour it will be hard (like rock hard - this is do to the lack of fat content) just nuke it 25 seconds to bring it back to scoops.
