It’s always so much fun to cook with your kids! Messy, but worth it! Our son was excited to help us make some home made chocolate ice cream, But seriously, kids LOVE to cook with you, even if its not dessert. Sal always tries to pull a chair up to the kitchen counter to help me make salad, mashed cauliflower and fruit smoothies. Not only does Sal want to help, he always has to sample everything as he helps out! Our son likes feeling like a “big boy” and I love some help in the kitchen every once and a while!
This is a Bulletproof recipe-they are simply awesome!! They require quality, healthy ingredients and everyone in my family loves to eat the food. All of the Bulletproof recipes I have made have been winners so far!
“Get Some” Ice Cream from The Bulletproof Exec
- 4 whole eggs (pastured of course)
- 4 yolks (in addition to the whole eggs above)
- 2 tsp vanilla (I use Bulletproof Vanilla)
- 1 gram vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or 10 drops apple cider vinegar or lime juice to taste.
- 100 grams (7 tbs) grass-fed butter
- 100 grams (7tbs) coconut oil (or substitute half Upgraded Cacao Butter for amazing taste)
- 50 grams (3tbs + 2tsp) MCT oil (important for consistency)
- 80 grams (5.5tbs) xylitol or erythritol (or more to taste – you can add up to 160 grams if you want)
- ~100 grams water or ice (just under 1/2 cup; add less than you think you need, then increase the amount).
- (optional) 1/4 to 1/2 cup of low-toxin Upgraded Chocolate powder
- Blend everything but the water/ice in blender. It takes a while to get the butter blended into perfect creaminess.
- Add water or ice and blend some more until well blended. Ideally, you want a yogurt-like consistency for creamy ice cream, or add more water for a firmer, icier texture
- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and turn it on.
This will make perfect consistency ice cream. Enjoy it, and share with your partner. Wait an hour.
The feeling of vibrance this brings most people (who can digest fat; if you give it to your vegan partner, you need to add lipase and betaine. If you don’t, their pancreas will panic from being forced to make real amounts of lipase for the first time in years…), along with a boost in hormones results in an intense wave of vitality…
Sal’s jobs while making the ice cream were to help measure and pour the ingredients in, mix them and taste test the coconut chocolate chips we added to our ice cream. Yum!! He could barely wait for the ice cream to freeze and was so excited to have some! He happily ate all of his food at dinnertime, just to have some chocolate ice cream. We were proud because he had two slider burgers (w/o the buns), avocado and some pickles for dinner. Sal even ate ALL of his salad. What a great motivator this recipe was for our little guy!! When we got home we all enjoyed the chocolate ice cream with home made chocolate chips as a treat together, and I think Sal appreciated this treat more because he got to help make it with mom and dad.
The take away? If you want your kids to try new foods that are healthier, get them to help you cook. You can make it fun for them and they will eat healthier versions of treats that have special time together mixed right in!
So, what are you going to make with your kids today?
