Recipe: Strawberry-Basil Ice Cream

Strawberry-Basil Ice Cream readyIce cream is a classic summer treat, but it’s usually usually packed with sugar and artificial flavors. The good news: it’s easy to make your own healthy version in less than 5 minutes!

Why our ice cream is guilt-free:

  • Strawberries are low in sugar compared to other fruits, but rich in Vitamin C, which helps boost your immune system. In fact, one serving of strawberries contains about half of your daily requirement!
  • Greek yogurt is loaded with protein – it’s essential for building muscle, enzymes, hormones and amino acids. Protein also helps stave off hunger.
  • This recipe is lower in sugar than commercial ice creams and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, but it’s still just as tasty as processed versions.
