To Make Healthy Frozen Desserts:
Frozen Desserts (Like Ice Cream!): Make the World’s Most Super-Nutritious & Delicious High-Protein, Nutrient-Dense Frozen Desserts!
- Simply take your smoothie and either pour it into an ice cream maker or simply put it into the freezer until it chills and firms up to the desired texture.
- Adjust the density & texture by varying the amount of liquid used.
Ice Pops: Simply take your favorite Superfood Smoothie and pour it into ice pop trays and freeze.
New Frozen Dessert Recipe! This has become my favorite way to make my frozen dessert using a food processor.
- Start with a few ounces of liquid in the bottom of the food processor (this helps it to mix cleanly and not cake to the sides);
- Add the appropriate amount of superfood mix &/or P3 or P4 (to boost the protein even more) based on how much frozen dessert you’d like to make (i.e., how many servings);
- Add several scoops of yogurt (I prefer unflavored Greek yogurt) if you choose to consume dairy; if you don’t eat dairy, you can substitute cold-milled Flax or Chia seeds to add more thickness (fiber and EFAs) to the finished product if desired; You can also make it without either the yogurt or added seeds, it’s still great;
- Add the frozen fruit of your choice (the amount will vary depending on how many servings you’re making and your taste preferences);
- Alternate pulsing and running the food processor until it blends the mixture into a nice soft-serve dessert consistency.
- You may have to play around with the amount of mix, protein, yogurt & frozen fruit until you find your favorite ratios.
- When done right, you’ll have some delicious soft-serve frozen dessert to enjoy right away, or;
- Play around with the amount of mix, liquid, frozen or fresh fruit, and optional yogurt or added seeds until you find the ratio that you like the best;
- Place anything remaining in seal-tight, Tupperware® style containers and put them in the freezer to enjoy whenever you’d like. As with some other frozen desserts, you may want to take it out of the freezer and allow it to soften a bit before eating it.
