15-Minute Vegan Ice Cream

 

This was my little science experiment. Did you know you can freeze homemade ice cream in fifteen minutes with the help of some kitchen magic?

Salt lowers the freezing point of water, so that our ice cream mix chills solid at lightning speed and is ready to eat in less time that it would take to get to the supermarket and back!

Plus it's low fructose, and totally vegan! You can, of course, use the usual method to make ice cream on this recipe...but I think this way is a bit more fun!

PS although this is low fructose (I use rice malt syrup as a sweetener, which is mostly glucose), it may not be suitable for everyone on a low-FODMAP diet because of the coconut milk. Assess your own tolerance before deciding whether this recipe is for you. Keeping the fructose content low is due to concerns around excessive fructose-based sweeteners on weight management and metabolic function.


Choc-Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Slave to your sweet tooth? These protein-packed treats are a guilt-free addition to a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

Chocolate and peanut butter has got to be one of my all-time favourite flavour combos. I make a batch of these and keep them in the fridge as my post-workout treats for the week.


Enjoy!

Turmeric-Dusted Kale Chip Recipe

Food is medicine, and that doesn't get much easier (or tastier) than crunchy, crispy kale chippies.

This recipe combines nutrient-dense kale with the anti-inflammatory super spice turmeric to create a healthy snack to replace your bowl of corn chips. in fact, the crew (who are actually just our mates) gobbled these up within minutes as soon as we finished filming.

Enjoy!


All Natural Chamomile & Jasmine Skin Cream Recipe

What does a herb nerd use to keep his skin healthy? Chamomile!

Chamomile flower may sound more familiar as a humble herbal tea, but it boasts a little something called bisabolol that is soluble in oil and has gentle anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties.

In this video Reece Carter shows us how to extract it, plus a whole heap of other active compounds, into an infused sweet almond oil that can be used to create a thick, moisturising skin cream for daily use.
