Mint Chip Protein Ice Cream

The other night I had the most amazing idea for ice cream. I’m currently obsessed with protein ice cream and one of my favorite “regular” ice cream flavors is Mint n’ Chip. IMG 8247 thumb Mint Chip Protein Ice Cream

    Ok lady, I think I MUST try one of your smoothies. They look so good. Question: If I were to induldge in this smoothie post dinner, is it bad to consume that much protein a couple hrs before bed? Anyone? Thanks!

    I’m jealous that your mom is a good substitute for Chipotle. But at least my grandparents is a good substitute for Cracker Barrel, if Cracker Barrel slipped you money on your way out the door. :)

    I read your blog about protein ice cream. I’ve done a lot of work in this area and actually created a gelato that has 15 grams of protein and only 2.5 g fat sweetened with organic agave nectar and pure cane sugar. I created this for hospital patients, being one myself for a large part of my life, but people like it so much that it is requested daily by healthy lifestyle consumers. I’d be happy to send you some if you’d like, because I know for certain that you would love it! Just let me know.
    Love you blog. Healthy foods and healthy lives are wonderful things for everyone.
