Our new summer recipe will conquer your heart but not your weight, so don’t worry, and get ready for culinary delight that you will surely love.

First of all, the process of making ice cream can seem very difficult but it is not. You only need five ingredients and maybe a little patience because the freezing process still takes its sweet time… the sun is beating down on us so lets go ahead!

Here’s what we need :

1 1/4 cups of Heavy Cream

1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1/2 Teaspoon of Mint Extract

3 Egg Yolks

1/4 Cup of Erythritol (or equivalent of your favorite non-caloric sweetener)

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder

Preparation :

Heat the heavy cream and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat until simmering, remove from the heat and allow to cool to around to room temperature.

Whisk the egg yolks with the erythritol until the yolks are pale yellow, add the cocoa and mix well.

Whisk half a cup of the warm cream mixture into the eggs, then add the remaining cream and whisk well. It is very important to make sure the cream is only warm and not hot. If the cream is too hot it can cook the eggs and make the ice cream chunky!

Next pour the mix back into the saucepan and place over low heat while stirring continuously to thicken. Make sure to keep the heat low, you don’t want to scramble the eggs. This step can take up to 20 minutes. The custard will be ready when the mixture coats the back of a spoon.

Pour the custard mixture it into a serving container and place in the fridge to help it cool down before freezing. Stir this mixture every ten minutes. Depending on the size of your container it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to completely chill.

If you have an ice cream machine pour the cold custard inside and let the machine work its magic. When the ice cream is the proper consistency of soft-serve pour it into a container and place it in the freezer. You will have delicious ice cream very soon! If you don’t have a machine you can just keep freezing the chilled custard and it will still be ice cream! But be sure to stir it every fifteen minutes as it freezes for best enjoyment.

Enjoy and stay cool.

Candy for Weight Loss? It’s Possible!


Candy. Is it the forbidden fructose or a weight loss tool? The answer may surprise you.

According to a study by a nonprofit organization dedicated to researching food and the body, people who eat candy actually have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than people who steer clear of the sugary stuff.

Pretty sweet, isn't it?

But before you hop in the car and head to the grocery store to raid the candy section, there are three things you need to know. 

Why it works

Candy for Weight Loss? It's Possible! You’re probably thinking that eating candy to lose weight goes against everything you’ve ever read in a magazine or seen on Oprah.

And you’re probably right. There’s not a doctor in the Land of Oz who would prescribe candy as a weight-loss supplement.

But what if it’s not viewed as a supplement? What if, instead, candy is seen as an easy way to fend off cravings, a little emotional lift in the midst of dieting or a reward? What if, instead of turning to a brownie or ice cream drizzled in fudge when you’re craving sweets or feeling stressed or celebrating a great day at the office, you ate a low calorie candy bar?

That, the researchers suspect, is how the people with the lower BMIs use candy as a weight loss/management tool.

Eating Candy Is Possible for Weight Loss Not every candy qualifies as a weight-loss tool

Some candies are better for you than others—remember when researchers discovered that dark chocolate was good for your heart/brain/blood sugar? It was big, big news. 

Well since then, the “healthier” candy selection has grown by leaps and bounds. Organic gummy worms are made without high-fructose corn syrup are a healthier alternative. Chocolate pieces made with natural peanut butter provide muscle-building protein. And certain kinds of jelly beans can actually provide a day’s worth of Vitamin C.

Moderation is still the key

As with anything—whether it’s “good” or “bad” for you—moderation is the key. If you’re planning to mix healthier candy into your diet as a weight loss tool, don’t overdo it.

Try to limit yourself to one serving one time a day.
