Healthy Ice Cream Recipe
Everyone wants a good dessert from time to time, but most of this delectable creations are loaded with refined sugar, coloring, preservatives, artificial flavors and the fat is from a toxic source. Eating this type of dessert will leave you hungry in 30 minutes, tired and cause fat gain.
So how about a recipe for “ice cream” that helps build muscle and burn fat that you can eat without having to call it a “cheat.” WINNER!!!
Because fat can help boost hormone production, this ice cream is appropriately called “Get Some Ice Cream” and perfect for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy it, and share with your partner. Wait an hour. 😉
If you are unaccustomed to eating fat (such as you are vegan/vegetarian), you need to add lipase and betaine.
4 whole eggs (pastured of course)
4 yolks (in addition to the whole eggs above)
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 gram vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or 10 drops apple cider vinegar or lime juice to taste.
100 grams (7tbs) organic, unrefned, virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil
50 grams (3tbs + 2tsp) MCT Oil (Medium Chain Triglyceride oil – important for consistency)
80 grams (5.5tbs) xylitol or erythritol (or more to taste – you can add up to 160 grams if you want)
~100 grams water or ice (just under 1/2 cup; add less than you think you need, then increase the amount).
(optional) 1/4 to 1/2 cup of organic cacao powder
Blend everything but the water/ice in blender. It takes a while to get the butter blended into perfect creaminess (for best results, let your butter soften outside of the fridge for an hour or so)
Add water or ice and blend some more until well blended. Ideally, you want a yogurt-like consistency for creamy ice cream, or add more water for a firmer, icier texture
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and turn it on (follow directions on your ice cream maker to set it up properly).
