To know me is to know of my great love of ice cream

So with treat week upon us I thought .. it's a perfect reason to give a couple of recipes a try.   I'd bookmarked a number with frozen yogurt that require the ice cream maker .. but this one was so different that I had to at least make an attempt.

Throw ingredients together .. shake for 5 minutes .. and you have something resembling ice cream?

Hmmmm ..

I blended everything .. put it in the bag .. salt & ice in another around it ..

And started to shake .. and shake .. and shake some more

Really?  5 minutes .. at a vigorous pace?

Where's that cute boy when you need him?   A random teenager anywhere close by?

The kitties came to see what was up .. My hands were getting cold .. But I could feel it starting to firm up

When it took it out .. Perfect!   It really was .. I stood back a bit in shock.

Vanilla Almond Ice Cream - Vanilla almond ice cream with protein powder .. it tastes really good, is healthy, and will satisfy a sweet tooth.

A few smoked almonds topped it off

That's pretty much all she wrote for that afternoon snack .. fantastic!

All sorts of flavor combinations come to mind .. many with fruit ..  if you make some .. please .. let me know what's good.

Enjoy!
