If you follow me on facebook you guys know I have been on a short vacation in the middle of nature to learn more about plants, wild life and nature in general. I love spending time in nature and discovering more and more about how it can provide for us humans. I have had the opportunity to learn from one amazing person, Garry Tibbo and I cannot wait to share with you guys all kind of information in the following posts. Among other things I have a few recipees that I know you will fall in love with because I did only from seeing them not to mention after I tasted them. In today’s post I will share an amazingly healthy and tasty ice cream recipee that I adore and that I will do for the rest of summer, probably in the winter time as well haha.
I love ice cream but I have to always limit my sugar intake since I am such a sweet tooth. I usually eat a coconut water based ice cream but the one I will share with you has more health benefits than you can imagine while still being delicious. This ice cream recipee includes goat milk kefir so for the vegetarians and vegans out there you can replace it with coconut milk or coconut water. Bee pollen and honey can be replaced by agave nectar or another sweetner of your choice.
The healthiest and most delicious ice cream recipee
Ingredients: Organic goat milk kefir
Organic, wild blueberries
Organic, wild strawberries
1. You need to have some fermented goat milk in the fridge. You can use around 200 ml of the kefir. It tastes exceptionally good and your intestinal flora will thank you for it. Also it will take away some of the sweetness of berries and will make it a more refreshing drink. It is a potent probiotic, consisting of both bacterial and yeast species of beneficial flora, and may help protect against gastrointestinal diseases. Vitamin K2 is a product of bacterial fermentation, so kefir is a likely a good source of this nutrient, especially if made with milk from pastured animals.
2. Then add in the frozen fruits. These berries were freshly collected and frozen and the taste does not even come close to the store bought ones. They are like a piece of heaven! Plus they are full of antioxydants and vitamins. New studies make it clear that we can freeze blueberries without doing damage to their delicate anthocyanin antioxidants. Berries in general are considered low in terms of their glycemic index (GI) which is very good if you have trouble with the sugar level in your blood and need to be careful. If you want to maximize your antioxidant benefits from blueberries, go organic! A recent study has directly compared the total antioxidant capacity of organically grown versus non-organically grown blueberries and found some remarkable results for the organically grown ones. Organically grown blueberries turned out to have a significantly higher level of total phenol antioxidants than conventionally grown blueberries, as well as significantly higher total antioxidant capacity. So go organic!
3. Then put the kefir and frozen fruits in a blender.
4. Add a tablespoon of chia seeds, one tablespoon of bee pollen and to taste a teaspoon of honey.
5. Blend all the ingredients together.
This is the final look of the ice cream. I guess your mouth is watering as well as you see it.
