Liz, I absolutely loved your margarita pudding! I tried to not eat the entire portion at lunch but gave in 2 hours later. I will be making this on a regular basis. Thank you so much!

4. Bake at 350 degrees ~30 minutes, until custart 'sets'.
4. Allow to cool and let it set in the fridge ~1 hour-overnight.

*This counts as your 8 oz protein + 2 cups veggies
*This is a play on my favorite sherbet recipe: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/4433631-post52.html
+The new Phase 1 Sheet dated 6/12/2012 now lists 4 Eggs + 2 Egg Whites as an appropriate 8oz protein replacement, so adjust accordingly: http://www.idealtogo.com/Library/Fase%201%20-%20ITG.pdf

Hey Robin! Good to "see" you!

FYI folks, my ice cream machine BROKE!!! But, if you freeze puréed veggies & lime/lemon juice in ice cube trays and blend them with a rtd or pudding it will blend down to soft serve consistency! So yum! I am keeping a reserve of frozen purees for ice cream readiness!

I'm in my 9th week, and our coach advised staying away from artificial sweetners due to their affect on the pancreas (Ideal Protein talked about this in their may newletter). Did it take you awhile to get used to the taste?
Just wanted to update folks..I've been adding fresh grated nutmeg along with the cinnamon and it made all the difference. Absolutely yummy!

Cool

Hey Liz, also wanted to ask if you have used turnips in any of your stuff for thickeners? I am Italian and I used to use turnips when i made my meat sauces just to add the filler and extra veggies so the kids didn't know They seem to be pretty bland and take on the flavor of whatever you cook them with. Just a thought

BTW, I did the copy/paste thing also! Hope thats ok! i LoVe trying new and different things!

I use my julienne peeler on an English cucumber to make cuke "noodles" - then I lightly sautee them in some oil and garlic, just for a minute or two until they are heated and slightly tender. You can toss them with IP asian or sesame ginger dressing, Liz's Thai pesto, or sometimes I make homemade teriyaki sauce with Braggs aminos, Walden Farm pancake syrup, ginger and garlic. They are YUMMY!
