BEAT THE HEAT WITH GOOD-FOR-YOU ICE CREAM RECIPES

by Beth Warren July 6, 2015

What’s summertime without ice cream?  Clearly we know why July, the peak of summer, is National Ice Cream Month. We’ve scoured the web for our favorite healthy ice cream recipes, so you could enjoy yourself in the heat without the added junk and fat:


1. Raw, Vegan, Dairy Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream by Purely Twins- Made with only 5 ingredients you most likely have on hand, the secret ingredient to the creamy texture is: avocado!  Surprise your picky eaters and see how they like a scoop of this treat.


2. Vegan Almond Butter Caramel-Swirled Vanilla Chocolate Chip Ice Cream by Healthy Happy Life- Without refined sugar, this could easily become a new favorite.  It takes a little more time to make the caramel swirl but it’s totally worth it!


3. 2 Ingredient Paleo Nutella Banana Ice Cream by Shared Appetite- Using theironyou.com’s “paleo-tella”, this is a sweet collaboration everyone will love.


4. Vegan Chocolate and Hazelnut Ice Cream by Arielle Likes to Cook- Another chocolate-and-hazelnut concoction (we can’t get enough!) using dates as a sweetener.

6. Honey Peach Frozen Yogurt by Week of Menus- Refreshing and super easy to make.


7. Blueberry Protein Ice Cream by Kiss My Broccoli Blog- Using cottage cheese and frozen fruit as its base, this frozen delight hits the spot.


8. Salted Caramel Coconut Ice Cream by Minimalist Baker- Salted caramel?  Coconut?  And it’s healthy?  Enough said.


9. Vegan Snickers Ice Cream by Minimalist Baker- This was just too good to pass by.  When your friends are happily munching on their Snickers ice cream bars, you could now join the club and have your own.
