Protein Packed S’mores Ice Cream

Here's the Dish

S’mores just scream summer to me…and come to think of it, so does ice cream! So, after a long day at the pool, I decided to create an indulgent ice cream flavor that combined the wonderful flavors of ‘Everyone’s Two Favorite Summer Treats’! To make this ice cream, I combined my chocolate-flavored protein ice cream and swirled in sweet marshmallow fluff. Of course I had to top it off with something, so I loaded it up with what else but graham cracker crumbs!

If you enjoy the classic combination of creamy chocolate, ooey gooey marshmallows, and sweet graham crackers, I can promise that you will be a fan of this s’mores ice cream as well!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 30-35 Minutes.

1

Combine all of the ingredients (except for the graham crackers) in a blender (or food processor), and blend until smooth.

2

Pour mixture into ice cream maker. Let the ice cream churn for about 20-25minutes, or until it becomes a firm ‘frozen yogurt’ texture. Scoop ice cream into individual dishes and add the crushed graham cracker over top, or swirl into ice cream if prefer. (You may also add other toppings, if desired).

3

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Note: You can also scoop ice cream into a Tupperware, and freeze for up to one hour, for a more firm ‘ice cream’ texture. However, don’t let ice cream freeze for longer than one hour, or it will become an ice block!  If it does become harder than you would like, you can always put the Tupperware in the microwave for about 30 seconds to defrost to desired texture!

Ingredients

1 cup Almond milk or skim milk (I used vanilla Almond Breeze)
1 cup Fat free cottage cheese, or plain low-fat greek yogurt
3 tbs Cocoa powder or 3 tbs sugar free chocolate pudding mix
2 tbs Marshmallow fluff OR 2 tbs light cool whip
4 pktsStevia (or 1 tbs sweetener of choice or to taste)
1 Graham cracker square, crushed into fine crumbs
Optional Toppings: fat free whip cream, 10 mini marshmallows, and/or 2 squares hershey’s chocolate, roughly chopped (to garnish).

Katie's Tip!

You can also scoop ice cream into a Tupperware, and freeze for up to one hour, for a more firm ‘ice cream’ texture.

just throwing this out there, if you freeze a sliced banana, then pop it in a blender, it has the same exact consistency as ice cream. i add 2 tsp of cocoa and a tbsp of peanut butter, but you can add whatever you want. a decent alternative if you don’t have an ice cream maker

i so agree cara! i think i’ve had ice cream at least 1,000 times this summer! :) this is my favorite way to have it (in place of a snack) because the protein keeps me full and i feel like i’m having a devine treat! :)
