You know I love me some instant, sugar-free, nutrient dense ice cream. Because you know I believe every food we put into our bodies should be nourishing- on some level. And we can make ice cream…yes ice cream…nourishing as well.
Yes, and all the better when it has something fermented in it too.
Which is why this one kind of wins the race in the game of the best ice cream you could ever eat.
Simplicity in the directions to make this: just add everything to a blender.
But a tad bit of complexity in the directions to eat.
Huh? Keep reading.
Here’s the thing: smoothies and ice creams they’re so freaking delicious.
But cold foods- they’re tricky in the body. To maintain proper hormone function, digestive wellness, and energy levels, we need to maintain a homeostasis temperature. When we eat cold foods, it lowers our temperature. When this happens, we can experience a lack of “fire” to digest food. (Cold foods are actually one of the worst things to eat when you have a digestive weakness- so make sure to follow the steps I show you below if that is your case!) Which is why I’m a huge fan of warming foods.
+ It’s such an easy meal: everything goes into one blender and it can be made in about two minutes!
So- here are your directions.
1. Get cozy. Put a warm jacket on and some sweatpants. Make sure to keep your body physically warm.
2. Eat slowly. Savor each bite. When we just toss food down the hatch, we don’t allow our natural digestive enzymes to start breaking down the food. Especially with cold foods, we want to take it slow.
