Ice Cream: Summer is here to be enjoyed, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up everything you’ve achieved for the rest of the year. If you’re going to treat yourself in the form of candy, make it healthy as possible.
After a few difficult months, summer is more than ever to pamper yourself. This can be in the form of that garment that you fell in love with at the beginning of the season, of the accessory you think you will never tire of, of that getaway that you have been dreaming of for months of something as simple as a candy.
Something as banal as enjoying your favourite dessert can be the greatest of pleasures. So much so that it often ends up being impossible not to fall before him again and again, no matter how much we propose to do it as something punctual.
That is why it is essential to have resources at hand that allow us to sweeten our lives without regrets haunting us. It is already known how much it costs to acquire certain habits and how quickly they are lost.
So that the same thing would not happen to us every year, this time we have proposed to find ice creams that are as delicious as they are healthy.
We have found them and brought them to you to easily make them at home with very few ingredients.
You will not need to invest too much time because it is much easier than you imagine, and the result will be so good that it will surprise you.
Still, if you’d instead get it ready-made, we’ve also compiled healthy industrial options worth giving a try. Fruit popsicles, chocolate sandwiches, creamy balls, your mouth will water just by going down this gallery.
1. Greek Yogurt and Fruit Lolly
A very easy polo that you can make yourself at home, as they propose from Kaiku without lactose, you can make with raspberry or any other fruit that you can think of.
A Greek yoghurt, a handful of raspberries, a pinch of salt, lime juice, and a little honey if you want to sweeten is all you need to take the heat better.
2. Oatmeal Ice Cream With Walnuts
Another ice cream that you can prepare yourself at home with oatmeal as a base is this one from which the Kolln recipe has given us.
50 grams of rolled oats, 625 ml of milk, 6-7 Medjool dates, 1 cinnamon stick or ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon, a handful of chopped walnuts, and vanilla essence are the ingredients that require its preparation.
Heat the milk with the cinnamon, vanilla, and dates, remove the cinnamon stick and grind the rest. Cook again with the flakes until creamy and chill in the fridge for at least four hours.
Then put it in the freezer for an hour and stir well. Repeat this operation every half hour until you see that the desired texture remains and, when serving, add some chopped nuts on top and a dash of honey if you like.
3. Chocolate and Coffee Lollies
If you can’t resist chocolate ice creams, try this recipe that we have posted on Futurlife’s Instagram. You only need 2 ripe bananas, 4 tablespoons of natural yoghurt or Greek natural yoghurt, 250g of Burgos cheese, a tablespoon of pure cocoa powder, and 2 tablespoons of soluble coffee.
Mix everything, put in some moulds in the freezer, and enjoy eating healthy!
4. Fruit Popsicles
Having some ice cream moulds at home means that you can try multiple healthy combinations until you find the one you like best.
This one by Tere Marin with the juice of 4-5 oranges, two slices of melon, and 30 grams of cherries is spectacular, but you can try with the fruit that you like the most that the result will be just as good.
5. Banana and Red Fruit Ice Cream
With just two ingredients, you can prepare a refreshing dessert of the healthiest. Three frozen bananas and about 250 grams of well-beaten raspberries will give you an ice cream suitable for a sweet tooth—easier, impossible.
6. Passion Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream From La Pecora
If you want it is to have it in the street, pay a visit to La Pecora, the most Instagrammed ice cream parlour in Madrid, for its original fish-shaped sweets, which has just added a passion fruit and yoghurt formula to its menu with which you can satiate your Desire for sweets without giving you so many regrets.
7. Healthy Oreo Ice Cream
Are you your cookie ice cream? Then you have to try this recipe by Chef Bosquet that covers the classic Oreo ice cream sandwiches, making them a little healthier.
150g of chopped almonds, 70g of soaked dates, 45g of coconut oil, and 20g of cocoa powder for the outer part that you will have to crush and bake for about 10 minutes at 180ºC.
Then, prepare the filling with 150g of cream, 100g of cream cheese, 40g of sweetener, and 50g of cookies, which you will have to integrate with the outside when it has cooled down.
8. Frozen Brownie Bars
A little more elaborate but worth trying to make are these frozen energy bars with an outer layer of brownie made from 300g of walnuts, 6 large dates, 40g of cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt;
whose filling is made with 200g of cashews soaked from the night before, coconut cream, 180 ml of melted coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 100g of agave or honey syrup, the juice of a lemon, and 200g of raspberries.
9. The Home Version of Frigopie
Are you a fan of the classic Frigopie? Then you should try one of the dozens of formulas that you will find on the web that will take you directly to your childhood.
One of them is this one with 275 g of clean, fresh strawberries, 250 g of mascarpone cheese, 100 ml of whipping cream, 40 g of brown sugar, and 20 g of white sugar.
10. Abbot Kinney’s Ice Cream
If cooking isn’t your thing and you prefer to buy ready-made ice cream, those from the vegan firm Abbot Kinney’s are going to make you fall in love.
Especially the mango and passion fruit because it is juicy, sweet, and fresh. An authentic tropical party based on coconut milk. Delicious.
