Cherry frozen Kefir ice cream

Eating ice cream for longevity? It may sound too good to be true, but take a look at the Caucasus region. There, people are credited with extreme longevity. Why? Purportedly because they consume a lot of healthy Kefir: a type of ‘cultured milk’. Kefir is part of the same family of dairy products as yoghurt. And since yoghurt can be frozen, why not try the same with Kefir?  The […]

Prune frozen yoghurt (blissfully guilt-free)

12/03/2013 at 10:53

Time again for a really sound, fresh and delightfully delicious frozen yoghurt! And believe me – prunes turn out to be just the perfect flavour! Luckily, this frozen yoghurt is also relatively ‘guilt-free’. Aside from the sweetness brought by the succulent prunes, there is so little extra sugar added in this recipe that I was wondering if it really would work out. Several […]

It seems that these small seeds contain massive amounts of both essential fatty acids, like Omega […]

Admittedly, it can be argued that this recipe is not for “ice cream”, but for a frozen dessert only resembling it. Be that as it may, do try it if you ever feel the need for something truly healthy, or fear an expanding waistline. Clearly, just like most “normal” ice cream, even this banana-based “ice cream” can be modified and re-shaped to one’s heart’s content:-) Healthy […]

Ice cream and health

21/07/2011 at 18:48

Let’s be honest – talking about “healthy” and “ice cream” at the same time might be something of a contradiction in terms. “Health” and “ice cream” simply do not go as well together as, say, “health and fruit” or “health and groceries”. Generally,  ice cream would rather seem to be the nemesis of any serious ambitions to care for bodily health.  Why? Ice cream is typically […]
