You guys. I can’t even…

This ice cream.
Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream

I had a friend suggest that I try to make a mexican/mayan chocolate ice cream. I love ice cream so I happily experimented one weekend. The results were pretty freakin’ fantastic. It’s August, which means it’s the perfect time to try this at home! Can you imagine using this to make a milkshake?!

I just blew my own mind.

Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream 

3 c. coco milk
6 yolks
1 packed cup dates
1 T vanilla
1/4 c. cacao
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne
Salt pinches

  1. Blend all ingredients well in a blender or vitamix.
  2. Pour into ice cream maker according to the machine’s instructions. (I have one where you have to add ice and salt… it’s fun! But a little more work to pay attention…)
  3. Store in the freezer.

  1. […] remember my Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream? I sure do. It was incredible. So I figured the same yum-factor would apply to chia pudding. […]

PRODUCT ALERT//
Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
.
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.

You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
