Bonus! Day 31 - Neapolitan Ice Cream

Now I am officially like Baskin Robbins - 31 flavors! This one is kind of cheating because it's just 3 simple flavors thrown together, but it's soooo good! Thank you to everyone who joined me on this blissful journey into ice cream utopia!

Neapolitan Ice Cream

1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 Tablespoon (1.5 teaspoons) sugar free vanilla pudding powder
1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1/2 Tablespoon (1.5 teaspoons) sugar free chocolate pudding powder
3 oz strawberries
1 packet Stevia or Splenda
1/4 cup water

1. With your immersion blender, blend the cottage cheese with the water and sweetener. Divide this cottage cheese mixture in half. To one half, blend in the vanilla whey and vanilla pudding. To the other half, blend in the chocolate whey and chocolate pudding.

2. Blend together the yogurt and strawberries until smooth. Add a little extra sweetener here, if desired, if your berries aren't real sweet.

3. In your freezer-safe bowl, layer the mixtures. On the bottom, place the vanilla. Next, place the chocolate. Then, smooth the strawberry on top. Do NOT mix.

4. Put the lid on your bowl and freeze for at least 2 and half hours.

When I made this, I made the mistake of trying to put the strawberry layer in the middle. The yogurt and lack of pudding in the strawberry layer made it a bit thinner and when I added the chocolate, it just sunk in the middle. Next time I will either a) make the strawberry layer with cottage cheese instead of yogurt; b) add a little pudding to the strawberry layer; or both.
