Admittedly, I’m new to all this, but OMG! Ice cream before bedtime helps you sleep better and lose weight? Totally counterintuitive isn’t it?
Well, I’ve learned to make my own ice cream from pure heavy cream and various sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol. (I don’t like most store bought ice cream) The recipe is simple if you want to try it (and the Cuisinart electric ice cream maker is the BOMB!) and I’ll be glad to share if anyone asks.
Basically a little cream cheese, xanthan gum, heavy cream and flavoring or fruit puree. It is divine. But of course I’ve been eating one tiny scoop at a time afraid of the calorie content. Maybe I’ll have to rethink that.
