Protein Cauliflower Ice Cream
This is one of my favourite things on a hot day.
Easy to make and tastes and looks decadent as something very fattening! It's actually just a whipped, frozen, vegetables and protein smoothie in disguise as ice cream!
You can use any vegatables, but just be aware that strong tasting vegetables will change the taste, and darker vegetables may give an undesirable colour. I usually add some frozen spinach and red cabbage without affecting the taste.
You can also use any flavoured protein, or use artificial flavouring.
With a combination of different vegetables, berries and flavured protein, the combinations are almost endless.
My favourites include salted caramel, cafe mocha, white chocolate and raspberries, chocolate peanut butter, banana and popcorn and key lime pie.

In a large freezer proof bowl, add all ingredients except the frozen cauliflower.
Blend using a hand blender until the mixture is smooth, thickened and slightly aerated.
Add the frozen cauliflower (small pieces are better) and any other frozen vegetables and continue to blend until the vegetables have broken down.
Add the frozen berries and stir into the mixture before returning to the freezer.
After about 10 to fifteen minutes, remove the mixture and stir. The ice cream is ready to serve at this point, or can be returned to the freezer if a firmer texture is desired.
Serve with some greek yogurt, fresh berries, sugar free syrup, salted popcorn or your favourite ice cream topping.
