This Ice Cream Is Perfect For After A Workout
What is the one food that is loved by all ages, perfect on a hot summer day, ideal as a dessert at any time, the best comfort food after a stressful day, brings a sweet touch to any romantic date, makes lovely addition to any dinner party, brings you back happy childhood memories and puts a happy smile on your face any day?
You’ve guessed it – ICE CREAM!
There is only one problem when it comes to ice cream. Traditional ice cream is NOT healthy – in fact, it’s quite the opposite.
What the bleep?! I know, I am such a party-pooper. But you knew that, didn’t you?
Traditional ice cream that you can find at the grocery store and ice cream shops is full of processed sugar and artificial and processed ingredients that can lead to blood sugar issues, weight gain, inflammation, pain and disease. Non-vegan ice creams are also full of mucus and inflammation-causing dairy that an increasing amount of people are allergic or sensitive to. If you are dealing with chronic pain, inflammation, frequent colds, fatigue or unknown health issues, you may also be dealing with hidden dairy sensitivity.
Does that mean you can never have ice cream again?
Heck no! You can totally enjoy healthy, organic and plant-based ice cream. The best news: you can make your own!
You can enjoy your favorite flavors too, like chocolate chip and even put chocolate hard shell on top.
I bet you can’t wait to make some of your own.
This Chocolate Chip Nice Cream is better than ice cream: it’s a NICE cream – nice to your health and nice to your waistline. It’s also nice to your taste buds. Made with bananas, it brings you plenty of potassium for muscle recovery, fiber for your digestion and sweetness for your desires. Your body will be happy to receive healthy fats, protein and fiber from the creamy almond butter.
But what makes this nice cream so special is that it is made with Organifi Complete Protein. Our plant-based protein powder is made with high-quality organic plant ingredients – such as quinoa, pea and pumpkin seed protein – to fill you up with protein, digestive enzymes and vitamins.
Adding all this protein goodness to your nice cream will create a perfect excuse for you to eat it after a workout. Ice cream after working out? Heck yeah. I am in. Are you?!
Let’s make it!
Chocolate Chip Nice Cream
- ½ cup organic almond butter
- 1 tbsp real maple syrup
- Dash of sea salt
- 4 bananas
- 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein Powder
- ¼ cup - ½ cup soy & dairy free mini chocolate chips (we used the brand Enjoy Life)
- Optional toppings: Chocolate hard-shell (see below for recipe) or nuts
- Blend all items in either a food processor or a high-speed blender. Pour into a loaf pan lined with wax paper, cover, then freeze for 4-6 hours.
Optional Chocolate Hard-Shell Recipe:
- ¾ cup dairy & soy free mini chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Combine the above ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 second intervals until melted. Drizzle on top of anything cold and it will harden up!
You can top your ice cream with fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes and cacao nibs. It’s so good. You will want this every day for the rest of the summer… um, I meant the rest of the year.
