50+ Real Food Ice Creams and Toppings


50+ Real Food Ice Creams and Toppings- www.nourishingsimplicity.org

It’s hot outside, the sweat drips from your brow. You try to decide what will cool you down. Lemonade? No, that won’t do. An iced mocha? Yummy, but it doesn’t hit the spot today. Then it hits you, ice cream, you need ice cream.

July is national ice cream month after all so what would be more fitting that a bowl of ice cream?

Ice cream often gets a bad rap for not being healthy. That’s just because people are used to ultra-pasteurized cream, cups of white sugar, and artifical ingredients. When ice cream is made from ingredients such as  raw cream, raw milk, coconut milk, maple syrup, raw honey, homemade vanilla extract, and fresh fruit it’s nothing to be feared.

As you look through the collection some are still considered  a “special treat” because of larger amounts of unrefined sugar but many others are perfect for a more frequent treat.

Ready to dive in? I  know I am! There is something for everyone in amongst these 50+ real food ice creams and toppings.

*For those of you that might wonder, this is the ice cream maker I have, it has held up wonderfully. This one is the one I have my eyes on, it lovely but has a pretty price tag.
