How to Make Healthy Ice Cream

subtitles.00_01_59_05.Still002

I know what you’re thinking, “Ugh. Not ANOTHER ‘healthy’ recipe that tastes nothing like the real thing.”

I’m not gonna lie, this recipe doesn’t come even CLOSE to Ben & Jerry’s or your favorite brand of chocolate chip cookie dough. But if you’re seriously considering healthier alternatives to your favorite, creamy, mouth-watering ice cream, you should definitely try this out.

Who knew bananas are surprisingly good at imitating the texture and taste of regular ice cream?? The first time I made this, it blew my mind. If you’re not the patient type (*cough* me), the only annoying thing you have to worry about is waiting until the bananas are ripe and completely frozen.

Jae was also extremely surprised at how well these turned out (this means a lot coming from one of the most experienced foodie I know). All you need are these ingredients:

  • Ripe and frozen bananas
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cacao nibs

Some helpful tips:

  • Add in some medjool dates for additional sweetness
  • Don’t let your bananas get TOO ripe if you don’t want a strong banana taste in your ice cream
  • Add in cacao powder for a chocolate flavor
  • Blend until the bananas a completely smooth and creamy (no frozen chunks left behind)

The Best Natural Face Mask EVER

I’ve used a fair share of face masks. Some of them seem pretty effective. Only a handful of them are ACTUALLY effective. And almost all of them are way too harsh for my skin.

A rule of thumb is: if there’s any burning sensation your face, you’re probably better off without it. Most of them have way too many chemicals we can’t pronounce or test out before actually using the product. So why not stick to basic, simple ingredients that are just as effective and guaranteed to work?

This solution came in a jar full of ooey-gooey magic for me: Manuka honey. Yeah. That’s right. HONEY.

I personally use it on blemishes (right after “accidentally” picking a pimple), dull skin, and rough areas on my face. As a result, I’ve been acne-free for quite some time 🙂 You have nothing to lose…but if you hate it, you can always use it for teas, baked goods, desserts etc. There are just so many use cases for this amazing nectar…you literally cannot go wrong with this purchase.

Watch me use Jae’s face as an example and slather Manuka honey all over him:
