It’s getting warmer!
Let’s all celebrate the warm weather with this new recipe for chocolate walnut ice cream. Easily prepared, it has a thick, bright taste, is moderately sweet, and perfectly satisfies.
A wonderful option for those who need a couple spoonfuls of dessert after a meal.
Not all of us like walnuts in their pure form, but it’s possible that this recipe will change your mind. I hope so, because excluding this nut from the diet is almost a crime against your health.
Walnuts are rich in the anti-inflammatory acid omega-3, antioxidants, biotin, folate, vitamin E, and melatonin, and they are believed to reduce the risk of cancer. Only 75 grams of these nuts a day can significantly improve certain aspects of men’s health.
In addition, nut fats help improve the metabolism of people with type 2 diabetes.
Studies have shown that people whose diet includes walnuts are less likely to be overweight and can more easily maintain a healthy weight. Isn’t that wonderful news?
And we do not just have nuts, but whole ice cream as a delicious medicine!
Ready? set? Let’s go cooking!
We will need: (3 servings)
1 cup (250 ml.) of walnuts
8 large, soft dates
3/4 cup of almond, coconut, or any other milk
3 tbsp. of sugar-free cocoa powder
1.5 tbsp. of lime juice or lemon
2 tbsp. of agave syrup or honey (if desired or if your cocoa powder is without sugar)
A pinch of cinnamon
Grind the nuts and the dates into the milk.
Add the cocoa powder, cinnamon, and lime juice to get a very thick composition.
Try to blend without adding extra liquid, so you get a thick and not watery ice cream.
Freeze for 2 hours and serve.
Enjoy the warm weather!
