Healthy Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
You know how there are social media aficionados out there? There are Facebook stalkers, there are Twitter addicts and there are Pinterest freaks… and then there are food fiends (aka, me). I don’t spend hours on social media sites, I spend my free time on websites like FoodGawker, TasteSpotting, Finding Vegan, etc. Right now, I’m obsessed with finding cold recipes — ice creams, frozen yogurt, no-bake refrigerator pies, that kind of stuff. It’s July, it’s freaking hot, I’m hungry.
When I made my other frozen yogurt recipes I compared my recipes’ nutrition labels with a similar Ben & Jerry’s flavor. This led me to look through the entire Ben & Jerry’s website. So, many, flavors! I wanted to make a Healthy Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream kind of like the B&J version, except healthier… no refined white sugar, no corn syrup, no heavy cream, no butter, etc. I used organic Greek yogurt because it was on sale, surprisingly, but I think any Greek yogurt that doesn’t use hormones would be just fine (Fage, Chobani, etc).
This Healthy Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is smooth, creamy, sweet and easy to make (if I can do it, you can do it). I like the bit of tanginess from the Greek yogurt, it makes this dessert incredibly unique and totally craveable. Perfect for the hot and humid weather these days 🙂
Beat the heat with this guilt-free treat!
This Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is so sweet and creamy you'd never know it's sugar free, low carb, high protein, and keto friendly!
You can find the full recipe and instructions in the Naughty or Nice Cookbook!
I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But, I understand not having a recipe here can be frustrating. So, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I'll show you all the ingredients I use in the recipe. That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
With love and good eats,
