Healthy Ice Cream Does Exist!

In August this year, it was reported that the Japanese discovered something that extends the life of ice cream. Due to the 2011 tragic earthquake in Tohoku Japan, a lot of produce, especially the strawberry farms, was left damaged and couldn’t be sold off. Scientists tried to salvage whatever they could, and inadvertently came across an unbelievable find. A local pastry chef they recruited extracted the polyphenols from the strawberries and discovered that the dairy cream added to the polyphenols solidified. With this, the “unmeltable” popsicle is apparently now on sale in Japan, able to retain its shape under the heat of a hand dryer.

Even without this new discovery, ice cream itself is an amazing product in itself. Dairy products is usually mixed with fruits or other ingredients, and sweetened with sugar or healthy substitutes to make ice cream. It is then cooled to transform into a semi-solid, yet smooth and utterly delicious modern dish that is well-loved by (nearly) everyone.

Yet, ice cream is also very unhealthy. It contains plenty of sugar. It is also a high-fat food since it may contain more than 10% milk fat. And of course there are also the sweeteners to make it all so addictive to our taste palate.

Have no fear though, because in this health-conscious day now, many healthy recipes are available to make the craving a better option. And it is totally possible to make it at home without the need for an ice cream maker.

To make the honey raspberry ice cream, here’s what you need:

  • 5 cups frozen raspberries
  • Quarter cup honey

Method:

  • Blend the frozen raspberries and honey until smooth.
  • Pour into airtight container and refrigerate overnight.

Experiment with other healthy ingredients like strawberries, blueberries. You may also try stevia, a natural sweetener extracted from the plant Stevia rebaudiana. Once you master the art of making ice cream, you will always have a healthy alternative for a nice dessert especially to unwind after a tough day!

I know I have to run 20 more minutes if I eat ice cream. Basically, I eat anything, but I just do more training.
