With The Curious Creamery you can make ice cream with just a third of the fat, calories, and saturated fat of regular ice cream, there are NO preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no high-fructose corn syrup, no gluten to name a few things that are missing (a good thing!) and The Curious Creamery is decreasing the carbon footprint while still providing a delicious, awesome and better-for-you product that includes the most indulgent ingredients.

The Curious Creamery - 2 pouches in every box - whisk attachment and mixing bowl

Each box contains two packages (packets).  I used one packet for this recipe but it expands so much that it was enough to make two large pies – enough for 16 servings.  This is definitely party worthy but because it can be stored in the freezer you can make one dessert/pie/cake now and save one for another day.  That’s what I did.

Now on to the Recipe!
