Are you trying to lose weight but just can’t seem to give up ice-cream? Well, what I’m about to tell you next may surprise you…
You don’t need to give up your love of ice-cream! Nope, not at all. But before you get too carried away, yes, you still need to eat healthy and be physically active. However, I’m going to tell you about a healthy ice-cream alternative. It’s made from whole food plant-based ingredients, that will equally satisfy your cravings while nourishing your body all at the same time. For real? Let me give you some facts…
Classic ice-cream vs. Plant-based ice cream
- Classic ice-cream contains saturated animal fats (milk, cream, eggs), cane sugar, emulsifiers and stablilizers
- Plant-based ice-cream doesn’t contain any of those unhealthy ingredients and it’s made from whole plant foods.
Now you can enjoy ice-cream without the guilt.
Living in Maui, Hawaii inspires me everyday. In fact, I’m getting ready to release my very first whole food plant-based ice-cream recipe eBook dedicated to the tropical flavors of Hawaii. Here are two recipes from my ebook to get you started on your path to pure wellness.
