Shelly's Pumpkin Spice Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
2 oz. NSA Pumpkin Puree (or Pumpkin Baby Food)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
Optional: 4-6 Sugar Free Gingersnaps or Grahams (or Protein Bar), broken into pieces

Mix together milk, protein. syrup, pumpkin and spice. 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. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the optional protein bar bites or cookies. 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. I topped mine with some Land o Lakes Sugar Free Whipped Cream.

Highlights of the day:

* Went to the 99 cent store. I heart 99 cent stores. I love leaving with three huge bags and only spending $12 :)
* Had coffee with a few OHers. It's always nice to chit chat with others that have had the surgery (or lived the fat life) they just "get it" you know.
* Made a super yummy Chicken Curry dish for dinner tonight. I took food porn so watch for it manana.
