Choose recipes: There are a variety of recipes for ice cream on the Internet. We need to filter the ones that suit our taste, our health habits and lifestyle. From vegan to keto to gluten-free to low-sugar, we should be able to follow the recipe that is healthy for us.
Creativity with the base: One of the healthy ways to get started with the base of the ice cream is to make it with frozen fruits. This will ensure that we get the necessary nutrients while relishing ice cream.
Spice and flavours: Adding sugar to ice cream is never a good option when it comes to making it healthy. But if we add flavours such as vanilla beans, cocoa powder and maple syrup, it will cover up for the absence of sugar.
The surprise element: We should not forget to add the surprise element to the ice cream to make the dessert more special for us. Be it chocolate chips or coconut flakes or a drizzle of honey, a bit of surprise will make the ice cream better, healthier and tastier.
