Strawberry variation shown

A delicious vanilla treat, to which you can add all sorts of goodies:  chopped nuts, a chocolate shell, strawberries (shown).  Strawberries are not suitable for Atkins Induction, so if still in Phase 1, make the basic vanilla version provided below and use extracts only to flavor your ice cream bars.

INGREDIENTS:

2 c. heavy cream
1 c. water
3 tsp. Fiberfit sweetener with fiber
2 pkt. Stevia extract
1 capful vanilla sugar-free syrup (or ¼ tsp. vanilla extract)

VARIATIONS:  Freeze in a bowl or ice tray and scoop out with an ice-cream scooper.  Add  your favorite toppings or flavoring extracts.  Possibilities:  chopped nuts, black walnuts+ maple extract, sugar-free syrups, Kahlua, Amaretto, Galliano, Framboise, Creme de Menthe, chopped peanuts and chocolate sauce or “shell”, blueberries, strawberries, chopped peaces and pecans.  The sky is the limit, but stick to whatever is allowed at the phase of your diet plan you are at and that is acceptable for that phase. 🙂

DIRECTIONS:  Mix all ingredients in a bowl or pourable measuring cup. Turn on ice cream maker and slowly pour into the machine. Freeze in an ice cream machine just until no longer liquid and still pourable.  Add any pureed fruits or flavorings the ice cream.  If using fruit, be sure to ADD IT TO NUTRITIONAL INFO shown below. Pour into 10 popsicle molds (or glass loaf pan) and freeze 10-20 minutes longer.  If using loaf pan, when partially frozen, make light score marks on top to denote 10 equal servings and slice with knife to serve exactly that portion.  It’s even better and richer, if you use 1/2 c.  “half and half” +1/2 c. water instead of 1 c. water.  Even better with 1 c. half and half instead of the water.  But adjust numbers below if you make these changes.
