Valentine’s Day Ice Cream

This luxurious ice cream is perfect for a Valentine’s Day meal. It’s incredibly indulgent and can be enjoyed without having to deviate from your paleo and ketogenic diet.

I adapted this recipe from Dave Asprey’s ‘Get Some’ Ice Cream, aptly titled for its ability to boost-hormones, notably sex hormones, creating ‘an intense wave of vitality’. As fats regulate the production of sex hormones, serving a deliciously creamy bowl of high-fat ice cream is sure to enhance your power of seduction!

Makes 6 servings

Nutrition per serving: 497kcal / 51g fat / 34.8g saturated fat / 4g total carbs / 0.6g fibre / 3.4g net carbs / 5.6g protein.

This is a high fat and, therefore, high calorie dessert but I will always opt for this ice cream on special occasions as it is loaded with nutrients and devoid of artificial sugars, preservatives, and flavourings.

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. Blitz the eggs (including yolks), MCT oil, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, and water in a food processor until well-combined.
  2. Using a bain-marie, gently melt the ghee, coconut oil, and 30 grams of dark chocolate. Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in the maca.
  3. Ensure that the fats are melted but not so warm as to scramble the egg. Gradually add the fats to the food processor and blitz until well-combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker (I use the Cuisinart ICE30BCU) and follow its instructions. You can transfer the mixture to a bowl, place in the freezer, and stir at 20-30 minute intervals until set, but the consistency is not as smooth.
  5. Whilst the ice cream is churning, chop most of the remaining chocolate into small chunks, leaving a small amount to grate on top before serving.
  6. Add the chocolate chunks to the ice cream 5 minutes before it’s ready.
  7. Indulge and allow nature to take its course!
