Protein Ice Cream... Who'da Thunk It??

Eggface... That is who thought this one up! I don't know if you guys are familiar with Michelle/Eggface over at, but she is one who posts WLS-friendly recipes on her blog VERY regularly...almost daily. And, they are usually VERY yummy concoctions! Lately, everyone is talking about her newest creation--protein ice cream. It is ice cream made in an ice cream maker with protein powder in it and they are RAVING about this! They are using different flavors of protein powder with various things mixed in to make different flavors of ice cream. Melting Mama made a version with Matrix's orange creamsicle powder... Check out Eggface's blog for recipes.

AND--Here's direct links to some of them:

peanut butter cup version is at

mint chocolate chip is at


black cherry

apple walnut crumb with cinnamon oatmeal cookie

Hawaiian Islands


strawberry cheesecake

toasted coconut

chocolate caramel

I think that is all that she has up so far... I must say that I was having an easier time pushing this aside till I saw that strawberry cheesecake one... Heck, the only thing I don't have here for that one is the danged ice cream maker and that would be an AWESOME treat after working in the garden! So, guess what I just did??? I posted on my local Freecycle group asking if anyone had an ice cream maker stashed in the cupboard going to waste! LOL We'll see if I get a response! If I do, I'll have to assume it is fate that I am meant to try this!!

8/4/08 update
She's added more recipes for the protein ice cream! I am using this post to keep up with them, so here's some more links!
Key Lime Pie
That one also has some good "tips" info!


Carrot Cake

Peanut Butter and Jelly

Roasted Pear

Lemon Meringue Pie

Root Beer Float

Blueberry Cheesecake

Butter Pecan

Caramel Apple

I think that is all of them so far... Wow, what a list! I have had my ice cream maker for a whole week now and, thanks to life (and 4-H) getting in the way, have yet to make a single batch! I am going to rectify that today though and finally make that strawberry cheesecake one!

She's at it again! If she keeps this up, we'll never run out of flavors to try!

Pumpkin Spice

Pineapple Coconut Cheesecake

That last one sounds like a winner! All I need is some crushed pineapple! Heck, I think I've got pineapple chunks... I could whiz those with the stick blender and have crushed!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana

Orange Creamsicle

She just NEVER stops!! New ones still--updated 8/28/08
Protein Ice Cream Bon-Bons

Chocolate Coconut Cookie

Vanilla Coconut Cookie
I love coconut and I love vanilla ice cream... I may have to give this one a try!!

LOLOLOL Well it's SCARY when I see them all in print like this. Do you think a Dr might say I get a little obsessive ;) Thanks for the laugh.

Hope you enjoy your creations!

Cherry Pretzel - Pretzels aren't popular in Belgium so it's one of those treats that I treasure in almost any form. You know those peanut butter filled pretzel logs? Well just imagine them filled with peanut butter and wrapped with whole fresh cherries.
