As I mentioned when I posted this on Instagram, I’ve got a soft spot for whipped cream and ice cream. The freaking texture, man… When I made the switch to a healthy lifestyle, I’ve found healthy ways to solve any cravings for chocolate, cake, etc to where I don’t feel tempted to eat a real chocolate bar or cupcake or cookies. There’s ALWAYS a healthy fix. But…. It’s hard to come close to the texture of whipped cream and ice cream. A lot of “ice cream” is either too soft or just becomes like ice in the freezer. BUT THIS. IS PERFECT. I honestly can’t tell the difference between this texture and the texture of real ice cream. Good heavens. Oh yeah and it tastes amazing so that’s cool ;p
- 3 oz baked sweet potato
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use cellucor)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 TBSP your favorite nut butter (I prefer raw cashew or raw macadamia)
In a blender such as a magic bullet, just toss in all of the ingredients and blend! Freeze the mixture for 1.5 – 2 hours and then enjoy!
If you freeze for longer and it gets too solid, simply microwave 5 seconds at a time until it becomes the softness you want. For example, the ice cream in the picture was frozen for 4 hours and I just microwaved it for 10 seconds. :)
I topped mine with crumbled up kashi cereal as some crunchy sprinkles ;p
