How do you turn a Protein Drink into a frozen dessert? I tried pouring one into a plastic container and freezing it but it just froze hard and not what I would call a dessert.

That depends...which stage are you in?

OK, it looks like I got a variety of answers here, so here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to compile everything I've got and make a document out of it. When it's done, I post it here. Thank you for your responses and cooperation!

I totally need a baked donut recipe please and thank you ❤️
(Allergies: shellfish, food style: kosher/vegan)

That's easy! Even my non-bariatric friends love this recipe. Enjoy!

2.25 cups of almond flour

.5 cups of sweetener of choice (I use Monk Fruit sweetener)

1 tsp of baking soda

4 eggs (you're vegan, so I'd recommend Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer...I've used it before and it's amazing)

1 tsp of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

.25 cups of milk substitute

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 12-count donut pan and set aside. Mix the ingredients together and pour into a plastic ziplock bag. Cut one corner of the bag and squeeze out batter into the donut pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove and let cool before transferring to cooling racks.

Frosting:

There's actually a couple of things you can do here, depending on what kind of donuts you like. Are you a glazed donut person? Frosting? Jelly? Cinnamon sugar or powdered? I like using the standard recipe for Cool Whip frosting made with sugar free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix. But... I just realized that's neither Kosher or vegan. Let me know. :)

I'm pre-surgery, planning ahead. If you have different recipes for each stage I'm interested in all.

I am Indian so I keep craving for something spicy and crunchy. Anything on that front?

I keep adding Indian taste to my food so I am sure down the road I'll have my share of recipes too.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
