The cuisinart ice cream maker is really easy to use. Just keep the tub in the freezer for 24 hours first. The tub goes in the machine and then there is a paddle that goes in the tub and the lid on top. Turn it on for 20 minutes and you have ice cream.

Today I used 1 c half and half, 2 c almond milk, 1/2 cup stevia in the raw, 2 eggs, 3 scoops Protein powder, mint extract, and green food color. Im going to add dark chocolate chips once it has firmed up in the machine. Be sure to taste it before you put it in the machine so that you can adjust the taste if you wish. I almost forgot the stevia. Also make sure you get peppermint extract. I have mint extract which is spearmint. I think I would have liked the peppermint better. It looks pretty good so hopefully it will taste good.

Good Luck on your experimenting.

I tried the Halo and really didn't like it. It could be that it was too old in the store. Kind of tasted like it had froze, unfroze, refrozen, etc. That experience is what led me to start developing my own recipes. It is also a lot cheaper to make your own if you have the machine.

I just found out that Herrell's Ice cream ships to you, you have to get a minimum of 4 pints. it comes in dry ice

-they have several flavours. The Peanut Butter ice cream is fantastic, it doesn't seem like a no sugar product and it's

120 calories for three scoops. yum...

I made a basic vanilla ice cream today. It was delicious!

I don't have a problem with Arctic Zero. I eat the ones with only 5g of sugar per serving. I have many more issues with lactose and since it's lactose free, it works for me. However, my favorite "ice cream" is mixing nonfat greek yogurt with frozen blueberries and stevia. The frozen blueberries turn the yogurt into a gelato sort of consistency. It's freaking delicious.

I think honestly that's just how the Halo brand tastes IMO lol.

Have you looked into the Yasso Greek yogurt bars? They are still a special occasion treat because they have added sugars, but they are only 100 calories a bar for the ones not dipped in chocolate. They have them at Walmart and it’s Greek yogurt so they have 5G Protein. They have mint chocolate chip, cookie dough and sea salt & caramel. Not sure what phase you are in or whether they fit i to your calorie budget but they do taste pretty good.

Never seen a poppable? Maybe it just hasn’t made its way to Walmart yet. I will check other stores for it.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
