    Step 1 You say to put everything in to mix. But then steps 5 and 7 say to put in almond milk and the vanilla paste. Are these to be put in at step 1 with extra added in the following steps?

      The paste is added afterwards before mix in button is hit. The almond milk is optional to help with mixing during the remixes

    Do you think I could use 11 oz of liquid with 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder instead of the fairlife shake?

      Yea I believe that would work but maybe blend the mix first before adding to pint and freezing

    Hi, I don’t have an ice cream maker, is there another method I can use to make this recipe? Thanks,

      You can try freezing the ice cream base in ice cube trays and place into a small food processor or small blender. I’m unsure if it’ll be the same thing but it wouldn’t hurt trying it out!

    Is the pudding mix necessary?

    1. Chef Allie Avatar

      Definitely helps with the creamy aspect

    Why are some recipes with fairlife protein drink and only 1 or 2 tbdp pudding mix and other recipes are fairlife drink and the whole box of pudding mix and in same cases 2 boxes%?

    1. Chef Allie Avatar

      None of my recipes require and entire box or 2 boxes of pudding mix. Only 1 or 2 TBSP in all of my recipes.
