Eggface... That is who thought this one up! I don't know if you guys are familiar with Michelle/Eggface over at ObesityHelp.com, 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:

apple walnut crumb with cinnamon oatmeal cookie
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!!
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!
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Lemon Meringue Pie
Root Beer Float
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!
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
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!!
