Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream

Guest recipe and blog by Sarah @therootedblonde

Love is in the air!  And what better way to show your love than by making a homemade, healthy yet scrumptious treat for your loved ones. 

I have 5 words for you—
Chocolate covered cherry ice cream. 

It just screams, I love you!  And you will love it right back.
That perfect creamy texture you crave AND made with only 5 simple ingredients!

And— this ice cream is good for you.
This ultra indulgent treat is made with whole foods and my favorite probiotic for extra health benefits (win, win!)

Why I personally love Just Thrive Probiotic

To be honest, this is the first probiotic that I’ve noticed a significant difference when it comes to my overall digestion. I had no idea that most probiotics out there don’t survive all the way to the gut. Just Thrive has a 1000x better survivability rate which makes sense why I am less bloated since switching probiotics!

Health benefits of Just Thrive Probiotic include
+ antioxidants to promote healthy skin
+ encourages great sleep & energy
+ supports your overall immunity & digestive health
+ drives a healthy mood & memory as the gut is your 2nd brain

I mean.. the fact that you can get all of those health benefits while eating a bowl of heavenly indulgence?...
Say no more— let’s make some!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream 

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana (sliced)
  • 1/2 c frozen cherries
  • 1/4 c nut milk of choice
  • 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Just Thrive Probiotic 

Directions

  1. Add nut milk to the base of the blender
  2. Open & pour in the Probiotic 
  3. Add in the cacao powder & frozen fruit
  4. Blend until smooth & creamy
  5. Add toppings of choice— I love chocolate chips & coconut flakes
  6. Sit back, relax & savor every bite as you support your gut!

*I recommend using a tamper while blending if you have one. If not, you may need to simply turn off blender & scrape down sides. Start slow & gradually increase the speed.
