#fitbitcheats: healthy Ice Cream

As the weather continues to heat up, why not enjoy some delicious Fitbitch gelato that won’t ruin your healthy eating habits?

 

We’ve been experimenting with a few recipes at Fitbitch HQ this summer – and I’m confident that we will be experimenting with a few more!

 Some of these have been made with SunWarrior Chocolate powder, a vegan protein powder that is clean of the kind of additives which are often hidden in other protein supplements.

Don’t worry, protein powder will not suddenly make you sprout muscles. It simply helps you to repair and rebuild muscles that have been worked through exercise in order to create tone. Or if you haven’t exercised, it has the benefit of making you feel fuller for longer.

Of course, there are lots of delicious fruit and coconut based recipes that you can you devise for ice lollies and ice ‘creams’ too. So make sure you check back or subscribe to the blog if you want to get these straight to your inbox when we post.

 

Chocolate & Raspberry Ice Cream

One scoop of protein powder

200-250ml Rude Health almond milk

Handful of frozen raspberries, more if you wish

Dash of water if needed

Whizz in a food processor until fully combined and then pour into an ice cream or individual blancmange mould. Freeze overnight and serve.

 

Blueberry, apple & ginger

OK, so it’s not an ice cream but it’s like drinking a delicious cocktail in ice form!

Handful of frozen blueberries

Juice of one apple and inch stub of ginger

Combine in a food processor, pour into a mould and freeze.

 

To help ease any of these out of their moulds, leave at room temperature for ten minutes. Or you can dip quickly into a cup of boiling water.

Papaya & pineapple with ginger, mint & toasted sesame

Whether it’s a delicious weekend breakfast or a healthy dessert you’re after, this hits the spot

Toast the sesame seeds under a grill and add to the juice of a one inch piece of fresh ginger and freshly cut mint. Combine this with cut up pineapple, hollow out the seeds from half a papaya and top.  You could serve with natural Total Greek yoghurt.

Be aware that pineapple has a high glycaemic index so will release sugar into the blood quickly. Help to slow this down with the addition of the yoghurt and/or sesame seeds or nuts of choice.

Delicious!
