Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Although it is currently winter in the US, this does not mean it is not ice cream season. Today we have a super easy ice cream recipe that is not only delicious but will also remind you of summer!

Ingredients:
1 serving of fresh or frozen pineapple
1 tablespoon of coconut milk
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
Pinch of ground cloves (optional)

Preparation:
Cut the pineapple into small chunks and then add to a small blender along with the coconut milk and a small pinch of cinnamon and cloves. Blend everything together until you achieve a smooth consistency. Put the finished mixture into a container or mold and freeze to enjoy later or serve immediately.

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.
