As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been eating primal lately. While my intake of sugar is probably lower than it’s ever been in my life, I still sometimes enjoy something sweet. This recipe was adapted from one I found on Born Fitness but I have to say that I’ve improved on it. It’s now close enough to deserve the name Primal Ice Cream.
2 Tbs. almond butter
1 Tbs. coconut butter
1 Tbs. cocoa powder
1 scoop protein powder
1 Tbs. maple syrup (if using unsweetened protein powder)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1/2 cap vanilla extract (optional)
6 Tbs. almond or coconut milk
1. Add butters and dry ingredients to the small bowl of a food processor. Pulse 3 or 4 times until ingredients are combined.
2. Add vanilla and maple syrup (if used), then turn processor on and add almond milk through the feed tube one tablespoon at a time. Let blend for about 30 seconds.
3. Freeze for 30-45 minutes for ice cream like consistency.
