This is a wonderful ice-cream substitute that is full of muscle building protein! I created this recipe to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings. I am in love with the results. I used my Vitamix to make this “ice cream” in less than 5 minutes. If you don’t have a Vitamix, then half the recipe for the blender and you’ll have a rich and delicious frozen protein shake. A refreshing treat anytime. Enjoy~
