More Than Just Keto Ice Cream: ChocoMint


ChocoMint Keto Ice Cream

Summer is in full swing ! The weather really pampers us, we would like to say, the sun is exceptionally gracious this season. During the hot days, we are desperately looking for the best ideas to cool ourselves down. Like always BeLite is on alert and knows one trick that is really quite good. This will not only cool you down but also offers a great taste that will put a huge smile on your face. It will definitely make sure that your scorching concern will be a stranger to you now forever. 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.

Obesity History & Future


The modern diet has developed over the past 50 years to now consist of significant quantities of chemicals and poor quality carbohydrates. Two recent studies look at both the past and the upcoming projections at how obesity has and will continue to impact our lives. Americans are not getting smaller, and there are serious consequences on our human genetics because of this global trend.

The New York Times recently released an article that scientists project by the year 2030 fifty percent of American adults will by scientifically obese. While it may seem that health fads and exercise regiments have helped counter the obesity trend, this is true for only particular groups. As a whole the nation is becoming much unhealthier.

One major impact that this diet has had on our human genetics as a whole can be seen in the declining puberty rates in females since the 1970s. A European study published in The Independent details how over 38 research projects were compared with more than ten thousand girls from all over the world. Scientists suspect that obesity is a major contributing reason.
