Keto Chocolate Ice Cream
Chocolate is one of those heftily debated topics in the health world. Good or bad? Will it make you fat or provide you with essential nutrients?
Sure, most chocolate candies, truffles, cakes, etc. cause inflammation and sugar spikes, but it’s not the chocolate that’s at fault. It’s the sugar, the processed flour, the hydrogenated oils, and other nastiness added to chocolate that cause problems.
When done right, chocolate is deliciously Bulletproof. Researchers found that people who consumed 45 grams of high-quality chocolate (85% cacao) daily for two months improved their HDL cholesterol levels without messing with weight, insulin resistance, or inflammation.
Now you can feel better about treating yourself. In fact, you can bring more chocolate into your life as long as you stay away from the cheap fake stuff, make sure your chocolate is mostly cacao, and say no to sugary, oxidized fats and inflammatory flours.
Now that you’re looking for more ways to work chocolate treats into your day, whip up a classic like you’ve never seen it before: rich, chocolatey ice cream without the sugar and preservatives that cause brain fog. With high-quality ingredients like free-range eggs and MCT Oil, you can steal a spoonful anytime of day without the crash of normal ice cream.
This recipe includes conversions to accommodate everyday cooking utensils, but a scale will give you much more accurate results.
