With this recipe you can!!

I love ice cream, I do. Especially when the weather gets warm, there’s nothing like some smooth and creamy ice cream to cool you down! So, when I get the itch for some ice cream with out the guilt, I reach for this no fail recipe.

Kids and adults both go crazy for this recipe!! You can make a million variations by adding frozen berries, using almond milk or coconut water instead of plain water, adding almond butter, or even adding chocolate chips – the possibilities are truly endless!!

So next time you got the itch for some ice cream, try this guilt free recipe and enjoy with the whole family! This also makes a great pre or post workout treat!

A quick note about Stevia, most of them are gross and taste like aspartame – yuck! I like NuNaturals brand Alcohol Free Liquid Stevia and NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia with Singing Dog Vanilla Extract, it’s the best tasting. I always order my NuNaturals stevia through they have the absolute BEST prices! Be sure to use my discount codeWAG472 to get $5 off your first order!

  • teeny tiniest pinch of sea salt- and I mean tiny!
  • enough waterto blend
  • stevia, to taste (optional)
  • sprig of mint(optional)


Mix all ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender until smooth. This will be the consistency of soft serve. If you'd like it to be a little more dense just put the blended mixture in the freezer for about 10 mins before serving.
