Ohh...adding chocolate would be divine! either cocoa powder or sf chocolate syrup- i've also seen that sweet n low makes sf strawberry syrup. I'm going to have to try this- the great thing is that it's JUST ONE SERVING, which is good for those of us with a history of "portion distortion".
Wowwowwow! We had this for dessert tonight, and oh la la, it was perfect! I made mine vanilla, and it was nice and rich- even better than storebought! I loved it, and the portion was perfect- not too skimpy after a nice dinner. It satisfied my ice-cream-lover side for sure! It was fun to make (we too used the dryer technique). I added a teaspoon of cocoa powder to my dad's and stepmom's and it was delicious as well. We'll definately be doing this again, and the great news is, there's no leftovers or a big carton sitting around to tempt us. When we want it (though the cravings are gone) we have to make it! Loved it! Thanks!
So I just went back to Phase I this week and I've REALLY been missing my homemade pumpkin spice frappucinos (made w/ no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream). I used this recipe tonight and threw it in my Ninja w/ some pumpkin spice coffee...worked like a charm!!! It's thinner than my normal frappucino (I'm sure that could be solved by shaking an extra minute or so or even by just throwing it in the freezer a few minutes) but still provides the same taste. Awesome!!!

I've got to try this! And my jaw hit the floor when you mentioned the dryer! I want an ice cream machine so bad but until then I'll settle for plastic bags thankful that I've done homemade before or I'd definitely get salty ice cream.
