Keep your cool this summer with these 5 amazing ice-cream recipes you can enjoy – guilt free!
These are the perfect after dinner desserts to help you beat the heat and the bulge…
Two Ingredient Watermelon Sorbet – by Five Heart Home
Made with just frozen watermelon and yoghurt – it’s a cinch to make! The recipe calls for vanilla yoghurt but if you can find a good Greek yoghurt, you’ll up the protein content too.
I’ve made this with plain low-fat Greek yoghurt and a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder – then it counts as a recovery meal, right?
Healthy Peach Frozen Yoghurt – Fitness Food Diva
Again, this is a blend of frozen fruit and yoghurt. For additional treat, grill some peach slices with a bit of brown sugar and serve on the side.
I puree my ripe fruit before I freeze and then once it’s icey, I bag it and label. That way I can use for smoothies. Or Nice-cream.
4 Ingredient Frozen Berry/Banana Icecream– by Recipe Diaries
We ALWAYS have frozen bananas on hand. My hubby waits for them to ripen and then slices, bags and freezes. I prefer to use the food processor and blend then freeze but it doesn’t matter.
Ripe bananas add a natural sweetness and creaminess to frozen desserts – so this is like icecream but without the cream. You can use any berries you like but the raspberries give this a beautiful colour and sweetness.
We make and eat this one on the spot but I freeze left overs into ice-blocks for my son too.
Again, you can add protein powder if you’d like a hit of protein too.
Kiwi Coconut Chia Popsicles – by The Little Epicurean
These are so pretty and so delicious. And sensible. Because you know what else chia pudding is good for? Freezing.
It makes this amazing frozen treat with a more-ish texture.
We’ve made this with a few different fruits – all the berries, of course, are also delicious.
I’ve saved my favourite for last.
Frozen Mango Lassi – by Cookie and Kate
I love this recipe. I think it’s because I do love a good mango lassi. And put the lime in – it just gives this recipe a lovely tang.
I have found these honey gold mangoes at the shops – they have a decent amount of acid so they are sweet and tangy (and my absolute favourite).
Again, try and get a good Greek yoghurt – you won’t regret it.
