An epic dessert/snack that also is good for your brain? Who else feels like since having kids their brain needs all the extra help it can get?
This *incredibly delicious* blackcurrant ice-cream recipe doubles as wonderful Brainfood, enhanced with The Brain Powder and The Brain Drink for Performance - perfect this easter!
1 cup dollop cream
1 cup plain, Greek yoghurt
1 egg yolk
2 TbspĀrepa - The Brain Powder
2 Tbsp Ārepa - The Brain Drink
1 tbsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
Optional- frozen blackcurrants or raspberries
Add everything except the blackcurrants into a bowl (and whisk until smooth) or blender (blend
until smooth). Start with just 1 Tbsp maple syrup and add more after mixing, if desired.
Add frozen blackcurrants or berries into ice cream moulds and fill up with your ice cream mix.
Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for 4+ hours.
To serve, allow to defrost for about 10 minutes before enjoying.
Note- to make this into a scoop-able ice cream (like for a cone) you can pour the ice cream mixture into a large Ziploc bag. Seal the bag (remove all the air you can) and lay flat in the freezer. When you want ice cream, bang the bag on the bench to break up, then pop into your blender (one with a tamper is best) and quickly blend it until it just becomes smooth and creamy. Enjoy immediately!
Vegan friends - I added raw egg yolk into this recipe as an extra brain booster (hello choline!), but you can easily make this recipe vegan (I tried it out)- simply swap cream for coconut cream (use just the thick creamy part) and yoghurt for coconut yoghurt. I recommend using the full 2 Tbsp maple for this version too.
