  2. cup (30 g) vanilla whey protein powder

  4. 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  5. 4 tablespoons (56 g) butter, melted

  10. Smart.)
  11. 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream, chilled
  12. 1 tablespoon (10 g) vanilla sugar-free instant pudding mix

Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 325F (170C, or gas mark 3).

In a food processor with the S-blade in place, grind the almonds fine.

Add the protein powder, the Splenda, and the ground ginger and pulse to mix.

Now add the butter and pulse until everything's blended.

Turn the mixture out into a 9-inch (23-cm) pie plate you've sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Press firmly into place, building up the sides, and bake for 12 minutes or until golden.

Cool before filling.

In a big mixing bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water.

Add the grated lime zest and the juice.

Now stir in the ice cream until the ice cream is melted and the mixture is smooth.

Chill until the mixture is thickened but not set.

Spoon the lime mixture into the prepared crust.

Chill until firm.

In the meantime, whip the cream with the pudding mix until you have whipped topping? but don't overbeat, or you'll get butter! Serve the pie with the whipped topping.
