Turtle Ice Cream

Oh, boy - this was good. I think I probably added too much caramel, though. Next time I will just use 1/2 Tablespoon of caramel topping instead of a full Tablespoon.

Turtle Ice Cream

1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 Tablespoon sugar free vanilla pudding powder
1 packet Stevia or Splenda
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon sugar free caramel topping
1/2 Tablespoon sugar free hot fudge topping
1 Tablespoon pecan pieces

1. You know the drill by now! :) With your immersion blender, mix together the first 5 ingredients. Mix in your freezer-safe bowl, or transfer now.

2. Place the pecans in a hot skillet and toast them for a few minutes (just takes a couple minutes - be careful not to burn them). This will bring out their flavor in the ice cream.

3. Warm the fudge topping and drizzle on top. Then warm the caramel topping and drizzle on top. Sprinkle the pecans on top. Slightly mix everything, maintaining a "ripple" of fudge and caramel.

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

I pulled mine out of the freezer a little early, so it looks a little sloppy in the picture.

Each bowl has approximately:

325 calories
26.1g protein
10.6g fat
