Ice Cream

At Metabolic Balance we love to enjoy everyone’s favorite summer treat, ice cream! Here are few tips when buying or enjoying this delicious treat: 

  • The shorter the list of ingredients, the better.  An organic ice cream is usually more expensive, but for a product without additives that is better for you, it is worth spending a few cents more. 
  • Look for key words that indicate high-quality processing including: “without colorings, additives and flavorings” and “only natural ingredients”.
  • Avoid plastic spoons and cups! Under the “Clean Metabolic” aspect of waste prevention, cones are a clean alternative, especially if they are made with only a few natural ingredients. 
  • When ordering an ice-cream sundae, ask for unsweetened whipped cream instead of ready-made cream or just avoid it all together.
  • 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). Another alternative is to blend frozen bananas with other fruits or mix-ins.
