Drumstick Ice Cream

No, not drumstick as in chicken. Drumstick like the cones with the chocolate coating and peanuts on top! :) One of my childhood favorites! The waffle got a little soggy, but still tasted good. I considered using 1 kid sized ice cream cone (made by Joy, 1 cone is 5 calories), but stuck with the waffle. Next time I may use the little cone if I still have them on hand. The cones are great with kids because they are really small. They are also great for portion control because they only hold about a 1/2 serving of ice cream.

Drumstick Ice Cream

1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 Tablespoon sugar free vanilla pudding powder
1 packet Stevia or Splenda
1/4 cup water
1/4 of a Kashi Waffle (or your favorite variety)
1/2 Tablespoon sugar free hot fudge topping

1. With your immersion blender, mix together the first 6 ingredients. Mix in your freezer-safe bowl, or transfer now.

2. Toast the waffle until it is crisp, but not burnt. Cut into dime sized pieces and sprinkle on top. I toasted the whole waffle to make it easier to remove from the toaster. Then I gave the other 3/4 to my son for dinner. We had breakfast for dinner. :)

3. Warm the fudge topping and drizzle on top. Slightly mix everything, maintaining a "ripple" of the fudge.

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