5 Tips to Enjoy Your Ice Cream Mindfully

MB 08-04-2019

  1. The shorter the list of ingredients, the better. An organic ice cream is usually more expensive, but for a taste experience without additives, it is worth spending a few cents more.
  1. Information on high-quality processing can also be found in phrases such as “without coloring, additives and flavorings” or “only natural ingredients”.
  1. No plastic spoons and cups! Under the “Clean Metabolic” aspect of waste prevention, waffles are a clean alternative, especially if they are baked with only a few natural ingredients. 
  1. When ordering an ice-cream sundae, ask for dairy-based whipped cream instead of ready-made cream (canned ready-whip or similar). If you can get only the latter it would be better to avoid it. 
  1. To be really sure, just make your own ice cream. Simply puree frozen fruits with yogurt or milk (depending on your plan, from Phase 3 you could also try with coconut milk) and enjoy!

Metabolic Balance Ice Cream

How do you actually make metabolically balanced ice cream from scratch? It’s quite easy: For a homemade ice cream, puree a portion of deep-frozen fruit with a hand blender or mixer. You can either freeze a serving of fresh fruit or buy frozen fruit. Optionally, you can add different herbs and spices later or when blending. If you eat cream cheese (as the protein portion) with your meal, you can add part of your cream cheese serving to the ice cream. Serve immediately and enjoy!

From a botanical point of view, a strawberry is actually not a berry, but an aggregate fruit. The red part is actually a pseudo-fruit, while the actual fruits of the strawberry are the small green or yellow “seeds” on the surface. Strawberries should not be rinsed with a strong water jet, but rather be soaked in cold water for a short  while Drain the washed strawberries well or pat dry carefully. Always remove stems and leaves after washing, otherwise the aroma will be watered down. Strawberries are full of vitamins: They contain many B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, copper and even more vitamin C than oranges or lemons.
