No one can argue that one of the best summer treats is a nice bowl of ice cream. While it’s okay to treat yourself once in a while, moderation is key. If you suffer from stomach issues, are lactose intolerant, or have IBS, ice cream can wreak havoc and bloat your system with milk, sugar, heavy cream and eggs.
For a healthier treat that’s packed with potassium and antioxidants, try this chocolate vegan ice cream, made with only a banana, natural nut butter, almond milk, cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Try adding some walnuts, cranberries, granola, or berries as toppings.
