Who is in for a frozen breakfast?!
What a healthy treat! Ice cream doesn`t necessarily mean tons of sugar and fat.
If you are an ice cream lover (like me), and really feel guilty every time when you finish a big pot of ice cream (like me), you will get my intention to invent this healthy, sugar-free, low fat, high in fibres ice cream. You don`t need an ice cream maker to prepare it. It takes 10 minutes of work and a couple of hours of patience. It`s perfect for breakfast because it`s high in nutrients. So if you want to break the classic, and have a fancy healthy treat instead, this recipe is for you! We hope you`ll enjoy it! 🙂
Oatmeal Buttermilk Ice Cream
Oatmeal buttermilk ice cream. Healthy, sugar-free, low fat, high in fibres.
- 200 ml Fresh orange juice
- 10 tbsp Rolled oats
- 150 g Buttermilk
- 1/2 Avocado
- 100 g Dried mango chunks
- 1-2 tbsp Pure honey (This is optional. We don`t put any because the mango is sweet enough for our taste.)
- 50 g Raw almonds
- 1 tbsp Chia seeds
1. Soak the oats in the orange juice for about 5 minutes, or until they get soft.
2. Using a chopper or another food processor, blend the buttermilk, avocado, honey (optional), and dried mango chunks together (leave some mango for garnish).
3. Add the orange oats and stir well until it gets homogeneous.
4. Garnish with the rest of the mango, almonds, and chia seeds.
5. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours.
Some tips from us:
– Improvise with the garnish. This time I used some dark chocolate, dried apricots, coconut flakes and some extra chia seeds. However, the garnish is 100% up to you. You could use some fresh fruits, grains, nuts, or anything else by your choice.
– Instead of dried mango chunks, you could use frozen mango. It will reduce the sweetness, so in this case, don`t sacrifice the honey.
– The avocado in the recipe is to make the ice cream smooth and creamy by using a natural fat. Avocado is rich in Omega 3, so it`s much better than using a single or double cream. However, if you are not a fan of avocado, you can stick to the cream option. Not so healthy though…
– You can use the Oatmeal Buttermilk Ice cream to surprise your party guests with a healthy dessert. Just grab some mini ice cream wafers (mini wafer shells for example), fill them with a scoop of oatmeal ice cream and garnish as desire.
– If you are inpatient to wait two hours for your ice cream to freeze, you can place it in the freezer for just 10 minutes, and simply serve as a healthy creamy dessert.
– Do NOT store the oatmeal ice cream in the freezer! Once it`s frozen, move it to the fridge and store for up to three days.
We hope you enjoyed my healthy ice cream recipe. We are planning to use it as a base of other delicious treats, so stay updated.
Very best wishes,
