Affogato Protein Ice Cream

105 °F today. It was so HOT fire hydrants were begging dogs to pee on them ;)

I went out to get the mail and I thought I was going to pass out. Literally the heat takes your breath away. I always worry about the elderly on fixed incomes not wanting to use AC or fans because of the added $$ on the electric bill. If you have older people in your life consider picking them up and taking them to your house or a movie for some free AC.

My Mum and I escaped for a few hours to see "Eat Pray Love." We both really enjoyed it. I hadn't read the book. I'm glad. They never do all the details in books justice and this way I just enjoyed the movie for what it was and yum yum yum a couple of hours with James Franco & Javier Bardem. Now that is the kind of HEAT I like. I also stayed cool with a batch of Protein Ice Cream. I served two scoops affogato-style with espresso poured over. Affogato means "drowned" in Italian. Mmmm soooo good. Definitely something Elizabeth in "Eat Pray Love" would have ordered in a cafe in Rome.

Shelly's Very Very Vanilla Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (.55 -.65 size scoop)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding Powder, dry
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
scrapings of one Vanilla Bean

Mix together milk, protein, pudding mix, syrup and bean scrapings. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. If you don't have one just blend it on super high (you want it fluffy) Pour into ice cream maker. 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.

If you have AC, considering inviting ME to your home too!

I'm having my lapband surgery on Thursday. I've predicted, for months, that it will be 100 this week and next, just to make my recovery uncomfortable... there's no AC at my house.

Here's hoping for an ocean breeze!

You are heating up while we are getting a little break. Hope it cools off soon!

The ice cream concoction looks interesting indeed! I've been doing the Click iced latte-type thing every afternoon. Momma needs a upper to get through the rest of the day!

Take care!

I went to Max Muscle today and they sold me "Max Pro". I didn't see the packaging you post. Any idea if it's the same thing or I should return it?!?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

leedadll - It's not the same. I'd return it. SEI Max is a GNC exclusive (fanchise stores choose what products they carry) SEI also makes SEI Ultimate same stuff for other nutrition stores. So check if they have SEI Ultimate. Here's the packaging of that: http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/2010/01/ultimate-milk-cookies.html

If it's not SEI run LOL.
