Raspberry, Blackberry, Mango Smoothie


Raspberry Blackberry Mango Smoothie

Are you ready for a super delicious, berry infused, smoothie to jump start your day?

This smoothie has your daily allowance of selenium with the addition of just two Brazil nuts! Brazil nuts are a rich source of selenium. Selenium is one of the nutrients that helps regulate thyroid function, as well as boost immunity, and so much more. Learn  more here from Dr. Axe on the benefits of selenium. Other good food sources of selenium are liver, eggs, grass fed beef, yellowfin tuna, cooked halibut, sardines, turkey, and spinach.

The berries in this smoothie are fantastic sources of Vitamin C, Magnesium and Fiber. Mango is great for the skin and digestion, as well as a good source of Vitamin C and Fiber. I added almond butter for healthy fat and some protein, and ground flax. There is an option to add in Grass Fed Collagen (I have it every day in my smoothies no matter what kind I make for my hair, skin, nails and gut health. It is tasteless, and also is a source of protein.) The lime juice gives the smoothie an extra zip like a sweet tart, and coconut water is very hydrating. I just love the flavor and color of this health promoting smoothie!

Honeyed Vanilla Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream


The weather is getting warmer, and I am craving ice cream.  Yummy, missing nothing ice cream.  This recipe is dairy free, SCD, Low FodMap and Paleo.  It is really pretty to look at,  and the swirls of raspberry add just the right amount of flavor burst in your mouth.

Cold & Creamy Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream!

Cold & Creamy Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream!

The recipe uses pastured egg yolks for a custardy creaminess and nutrition.  Yolks have fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K2) and those important Omega 3’s.  It is churned in an ice cream maker.  If you happen to have any left over, you can freeze it and let is set on the counter for 5 or 10 minutes until it softens enough to scoop.  

There are a few steps, but it is worth it, and you can do it ahead!  So, if you are having company,  you can refrigerate the mix up to 24 hours, then just before you set down to dinner, put it in your ice cream freezer.  It is done in 30 minutes while you eat your main course.

Ingredients:

——————————————————-

Swirl:

  • 10 oz. frozen Raspberries
  • 1 Tablespoon Clear Honey

Mix Egg Yolks and 6 Tablespoons Clear Honey in a stand mixer or use a hand mixer.  Beat until thick and light.  Scald the coconut milk in a saucepan over medium heat.  Then, slowly pour hot coconut milk into egg mixture while beating on low.  Place the mixture over a hot water bath (double broiler) and heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.  Stir in Vanilla Extract. Chill until cool and up to 24 hours.

To Make Raspberry Swirl: Heat the frozen raspberries with the honey until they thaw and simmer.  Press the mixture through a mesh strainer to extract the seeds.  Refrigerate this separately.

When ready to make the ice cream.  Freeze the vanilla ice cream in an ice cream freezer.  After the vanilla is finished, swirl in the raspberry sauce, but do not mix completely, leave it swirled.

Makes: 4 generous or 6 moderate servings
