That’s right. It’s a healthier, better for you ice cream. Just scroll down to the nutritional data, it is packed with protein!  When I saw this recipe in Oxygen magazine, I couldn’t wait to try it and dig in. I hope you all feel the same!! By the way, this recipe is the bag and shake method. It’s a great way to eat healthier and get a great arm work out in the process! I  am sure if you have an ice cream machine, you can alter the method as well.
