Creme Brulee Chocolate Chip "Ice Cream"

{I apologize for the less than stellar photo. The lighting was bad and this version actually looks way better than the original.}

Awhile ago, I posted about using Weight Watchers smoothie mix to make a crepe/pancake. Well, today I discovered another use for the mix other than well...you know...smoothies. I did, in fact, make a smoothie with the mix, but I only drank half. I poured the rest into a freezer safe container and put it in the freezer. Every 30 minutes or so, I used a fork to scrape/stir the mix. This made it somewhat fluffy as it was freezing. Because I used the creme brulee flavor which is white-ish, it looked like mashed potatoes at one point during the freezing process. Mid-way through the freezing process, I added about 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips. After a few hours, I scooped the mixture into a bowl and ate it like ice cream. It was much more crumbly than ice cream, but was a great treat that I'm sure would have worked well with any of the smoothie flavors. How many more uses can I come up with for smoothie mix? Do these recipes work with non-Weight Watchers smoothie mixes? Give it a try and post your results in the comments below!
Creme Brulee Chocolate Chip "Ice Cream"
Yield: 1 serving

What You Need
1 package Weight Watchers smoothie mix. {I used creme brulee, but use whatever flavor you prefer.}
1 cup skim or 1% milk
handful of ice cubes
1 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips

What To Do
1. Add ice to blender. Allow to soften if desired.
2. Add smoothie mix and milk to blender. Blend until combined, frothy, slushy, and ice is crushed.
3. Drink half of the smoothie or save for a second batch of "ice cream."
4. Pour the rest of the smoothie into a freezer safe container. Put in freezer. Every 15-30 minutes, remove from freezer and scrape/stir with a fork. Add chocolate chips after mostly frozen.
5. When mix has reached desired level of freezing, remove from the freezer and enjoy!
