Who’s ready for a healthy treat! If you’ve been following us for a while you know how much we love a little guilt free pleasure. Everything from Clean Eating Chocolate Pie to Mint Dole Whip to Strawberry Shortcake to Banana Cream Pie. We love our healthy treats! This one happens to be one of the best we have ever made. And we don’t say that lightly 😉
There is a large misconception that having a treat now and then and being healthy don’t coincide. However, the truth is that treats made with pure, health promoting ingredients are great when eaten in moderation. If done right they can actually be very good for you!
Take strawberries for instance, they are an amazing source of antioxidants, can help stabilize blood sugar levels, are heart healthy and they are anti-inflammatory. (source)
Basil is also anti-inflammatory, is anti-bacterial, heart healthy and is a great source for vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A and manganese. (source)
Add this to some raw honey or maple syrup (which are both much easier on the glycemic index than sugar and are packed with vitamins and minerals) and some organic milk and you have a healthy and divinely delicious treat! So let’s eat! It’s a great way to stay cool this summer.
Resources for this Recipe:
Strawberry Basil Ice Cream
- 1 ½ cups whole milk (we use raw)
- ¾ scant cup honey or maple syrup
- 3 cups cream
- 2 cups strawberries
