The Keto diet is being bandied about left, right and centre at the moment and has some bloody ace applications for certain people. You can read more about keto in THIS POST HERE but here’s the cliff’s notes- It’s a high fat, low carb diet. A few weeks ago when I was doing a WORKSHOP down the coast I stopped by this place called Brio Emporium that make these bloody amazing keto ice cream sundaes and realised that I needed to give that jazz a roll at home. So here’s me rollin’….
Now the base of this recipe is keto, so you can just leave it at that and be all #keto….buuutttt I was feeling kinda festive at the time because #christmas so I went and un-keto’d it by adding cranberries & chocolate & brandy. If you hate fun and don’t want to add the extras then power to you. *On a side note- the addition of booze stops the ice cream from freezing hard once you pop it in the freezer. If you have ever made homemade ice cream without the crappy ingredients you know what I’m talking about. About 1/4 cup of alcohol, vodka works well and adds no taste, will keep it from freezing like a rock. If you want to leave it out you’ll just need to let it soften on the bench for at least 15 mins before you try & dig in.
I used this HEMP OIL as it’s a top source of omega fats 3, 6 & 9 as well as a cracking source of antioxidants. I also use THIS COLLAGEN powder. Collagen is basically pure protein and the building blocks for hair, skin, nails, joints etc. It can help restore the firmness in our skin AND it’s cheaper than BOTOX! It’s also bloody tops for gut health and helping to repair leaky gut.
