I love a good cold cup of eggnog during the holidays.
How about an ENTIRE pint of almond-nog protein ice cream? This entire pint is 6 WW points, ONLY 158 calories and has 16.3 grams of protein in it.
Being able to have an ENTIRE pint of ice cream for the holidays or any day sounds WONDERFUL!
Here is what you will need:
- Ninja CREAMi ice cream maker
- Fairlife vanilla protein shake (11.5 oz.)
- Almond Nog (I use Aldi brand)
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Simply Delish vanilla instant pudding mix
- Vanilla extract or paste
- Nutmeg (Freshly grated or pre-ground)
- Mini Nilla wafers
- fat free Reddi whip
I personally LOVE the Fairlife brand for protein shakes. They do not give a weird aftertaste like other brands, and they truly make the ice creamy super creamy.
Many brands now make almond-nog, I found this one at Aldi. It is delicious on its own and SUPER low in calories.
Simply Delish is my favorite brand for pudding mixes. If you’d like to try it out, use code CHEFALLIE and click HERE.
You can either use vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste. HERE is the paste I get from Amazon.

Here are the mini nilla wafers I use for the mix-in. You can use whatever you want but this is what I had on hand and worked out perfectly.
Here is how to make it:
- Combine all of the ice cream base ingredients into the Ninja CREAMi pint container
- Place the lid onto the pint container and freeze for 24 hours
- Once ready, remove from the freezer and place into the Ninja CREAMi bowl
- Place the bowl top on
- Press the “light ice cream” button 2-3 times
- If not creamy yet, press the “re-spin” button 1-2 times after until creamy consistency
- Once creamy, add the crushed mini nilla wafters to the center of the pint and press the “mix-in” button
- Once mixed, ENJOY!
