<article itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Recipe"> <section itemprop="description"> <p>Nothing refreshes on a hot summer’s day quite like a bowl of ice cream. There are so many great flavors to choose from. Your taste buds will never get bored! But too many of those sweet treats are full of sugar or weird chemicals, offsetting the healthy fat of fresh dairy. Luckily, it’s easier than you think to make keto-friendly ice cream at home! You don’t even need a fancy ice cream maker—just some patience. The texture will be more airy than a store-bought pint, and the fully-loaded flavor will blow you away.</p> </section> <section> <header>Marvelous Mint</header> <p>Mint is one of those flavors that we’re all familiar with, but we rarely know how to make the best use of. Too often it’s relegated to a stick of gum or an after-dinner breath freshener. But muddle it into a drink or mix it into a dessert and you’ve got something magical! The menthol that gives mint its cooling taste is particularly good for your digestion. It increases bile production, helping your body break down food more efficiently. It also reduces bloating and inflammation in the gut. That makes this mint ice cream the perfect end to a delectable dinner!</p> </section> <section> <header>Whip It Up</header> <p>Heavy whipping cream is the most decadent part of raw milk. It’s high in saturated fat, which was long thought to be bad for your health. However, new research shows that getting the right kinds of fats—including the fat in heavy cream—may actually protect against heart disease. Heavy cream also contains significant amounts of choline, an essential nutrient for boosting your metabolism and supporting brain and nerve function.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">No-Churn Mint Chip Ice Cream</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Freezing Time: 4 hours</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 8</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">6 squares unsweetened 100% chocolate (try Baker’s, or use &frac14; cup Lily’s stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 cups heavy whipping cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon peppermint extract</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 tablespoons powdered monk fruit sweetener</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; teaspoon stevia</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3-4 drops green food coloring (optional)</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Use a sharp chef’s knife to shave the chocolate into fine pieces.
