Cherry Chunk Protein Ice Cream (66)

I’m bursting with gratitude and love for you.

It’s been 48 days since my dessert cookbook launched and a momentous THANK YOU is in order.

The love, enthusiasm and incredible support you blasted my way throughout the cookbook process helped to fuel my creative fire.

I majorly rocked it because you light up my life.

Dessert Freedom is for people looking to confront cravings, indulge in dessert again, bust through their allergies, and feel good about their body.

… and it’s super cool when I’m told that that’s exactly what my book is doing (hurrah!).

I work so very hard (I love every moment of it!) and knowing that I’m doing a good job is ultra nourishing – goes right to my heart!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Let’s celebrate with some ice cream (another healthy + easy dessert recipe to keep our Dessert Freedom motors revving!)

Add navy beans, non-dairy milk, banana, honey and extracts to the just of your high powered blender and blend on high for 3 minutes or until ridiculously smooth.

You have to blend the mix until it’s smooth. The smoother, the better. Blend it… HARD!

Then you pour the mix into a bowl and mix it with the chopped strawberries and pitted cherries.

If you have an ice cream maker, follow the ice cream maker instructions above. I have this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and I love it dearly. We keep the bowl in the freezer at all times so ice cream can be made on a whim.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I included non-ice cream maker instructions in the recipe, too. It’s good either way.

And… the last thing I have to say about this recipe…

Don’t let the beans scare you.

Embrace the bean.

Your life will be better because of it.

Beans in ice cream definitely tops the cake for me. So strange, so good, so totally making this one more than once!
