Strawberry Vanilla Cream Protein Ice Cream!!

So the Ice Cream Series continues... or maybe this was just a reason for me to indulge and show off my creations and obsessive need to take multiple cell phone pictures of all of my amazing tasting recipes?
I couldn't help it.
Either way, my cell phone is overwrought with Protein Ice Cream pictures, and my poor hard drive losing memory faster than an Alzheimer's patient... so I thought I'd unload and EDUCATE (so indulgent, I know), with yet another creation. So here is my slightly hedonistic creation that I created. Strawberry cream protein dream... I think of this as my flip off to the famous Strawberry Cream Starbucks Frappuccino/ or McDonald's Strawberry shake!

-1 pack Protilife Protishake Vanilla (you can use any Vanilla protein powder)
-Water or liquid of choice (Almond, Milk, Soy, Rice, Oat milk, kefir etc)
-Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip (optional- you can use Greek Yogurt, Ricotta, Marscapone, Quark, Baker's Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Cream cheese, Butter milk etc)
-PGX Granules (or thickening gums like guar)
-Sweetener (I used 4 packets of Sweet and Low)

1. Put Ice, Syrups, Liquid, Sweetener etc in blender.
2. Add Vanilla Protein Powder and PGX Granules/Thickener (GUAR).
3. BLEND- keep adding liquid and ice cubes as the volume increases until milky/creamy in color.
4. Add Heaping Tbs of Walden Farms Sugar Free Strawberry Jam.
5. Pour in some Walden Farms Strawberry Syrup. Add Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip while blending (or Ricotta, Quark, Cottage Cheese, Greek Yogurt, Marscapone, Baker's Cheese etc).
6.Turn up speed until FOUR peaks form around a vortex in the blender *picture below
7. Add more ice, turn up to highest speed one last time, pour into HUGE ASS BOWL and ENJOY!
8. Optional: Drizzle some melted Walden Farms Sugar Free Strawberry Jam on top! Great with Special K Strawberry Cereal....
9. Enjoy!

See the 'Vortex/ peaks' forming?
