Another Protein Ice Cream Recipe!

First, the good stuff... New Protein Powder Ice Cream Recipe.
After work yesterday I did a bit of errand running and came across a gallon of local fresh apple cider... hmmmm. Bomb, baby!

Apple Harvest Protein Ice Cream
recipe by Chelle Stafford
serves 1

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup apple cider 
  • 1.5 serving vanilla protein powder (my scoop is = 1/3 cup, I used 1 1/2 scoops)
  • 1/2 cup 0% Chobani plain greek yogurt

Blend all ingredients well (I used a Magic Bullet), then pour into ice cream maker and run for about 20 minutes.

YUM!! The strength of the apple cider flavor was awesome and when I added caramel, even better!

TIPS... Add sugar free caramel syrup! After you've put it in the machine, let it run about 10 minutes then add 2 Tbsp caramel syrup to the mix an let it go. And/or drizzle caramel over the top!


Even better with Caramel!!
Yes, I was very, very sad when it was gone. 
Moving on to today's food... I have been scrambling since 5:30 this morning, and still have a ton to do. Oy.
Here's a quick glimpse of my food ...

Breakfast: pumpkin protein oatmeal and half a grapefruit
Snack1: Chobani yogurt and half cup of blackberries
Lunch: Stuffed pepper w/1 Tbsp reduced fat feta, brown rice, half grapefruit
Snack 2: stuffed pepper w/1 Tbsp reduced fat feta
Extra: chicken breast for just in case I need it.

lunch!
 
Bethany's flowers - aren't they gorgeous??

 And now I've gotta run again. I am really looking forward to the weekend and hopefully tomorrow will be more balanced than the rest of this week has.

Happy Thursday!!
