Super ice pops

August 2, 2015

Summer time is synonymous with delicious ice creams. Even better, they don’t have to be bad for you. These ice creams have too many benefits, you will literally scream for more. They do not contain any dairy, weird additives or unnecessary nonsense.  We have made these in cooperation with Supernature.

We have made three different types, all containing some sort of superfood. The rest of the ingredients are all simple stuff that you can get in any food store, so it will be easy for everyone try out the recipes. The three different ice pops are all made just like a smoothie, and then the “mass” is poured into ice cream molds together with pieces of different fruits. We bought the molds at “Ting” in Oslo, where they have these.

Mango & pinapple icy pops  (6 popsicles)

  • 2 mangos
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 passion fruit
  • 2 oranges pressed as juice (or fresh store bought orange juice
  • 2 tbs Rice Bran Solubles

Add all the ingredients except for the kiwis into a blender or food processor. Run until smooth. Pour the ice cream into molds, and add pieces of kiwi. Push the pieces to the sides of the mold if you want them to be visible at the sides of the ice cream. Let it freeze over night.

Chocolate & date creamy heaven

  • 9 dates
  • 4,5 frozen bananas (peeled and chopped)
  • 3 tbs oat milk (or similar)
  • 3 tbs Raw Cacao

Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor. Run until smooth. Pour the mass into the molds. Let it freeze over night.

Super green fresh 

Add all the ingredients except the passion fruit to a blender or food processor. Run until smooth. Pour some of the mass into the molds, and add the passion fruit in layers. Let it freeze over night.

THE SUPERFOOD:

Rice Brans Solubles 

Rice Bran is one of the lesser known superfoods, however it should not be underestimated just because it has a plane name. Rice brans solubles is a small powerhouse of nutrients that will make you pop (in a good way). It is a natural source to vitamin B, vitamin E and thus whole lot of antioxidants. Vitamin B6 helps the nervous system function properly and vitamin E protects the cells against stress.  Therefore, it is known to help balance your blod sugar, help the body to get rid of toxins, and reduce cholesterol. It does not have the same strong taste as Spirulina or Chlorella therefore it is a great superfood for the not-so-in-love-with-kale-enthusiasts.

Raw cacao 

This is one of our absolute favorite superfoods! Who said you can’t have chocolate everyday? Raw cacao is unprocessed cacao beans and offers loads of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. More precisely, it contains magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper and potassium to mention a few. The amount of fiber in the cacao supports your digestion, and in fact the many components of this superfood can even enhance physical and mental well-being! What’s not to love?

Spirulina 

Spirulina is a microalgae (alge) that has been eaten for centuries due to its health benefits. It’s called a “miracle from the sea” and is grown naturally in oceans and lakes in tropical climates. It contains many nutrients, some of which aren’t found in the average daily vitamins. Especially great is the large amount of protein, which actually makes up 70% of it’s weight! Spirulina also has large amounts of calcium, potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and iron.

Purely Greens Max

Purely Greens Max is recommended for people who work out. It gives you a large specter of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and protein. The powder consists of different types of superfoods, including algae, fruits, extracts from different greens and herbs. The supplement is perfect for you who wish for an extra energy boost during your day!

Bee Pollen 

Bee pollen contains 30% plant protein, and is therefore used a lot by active athletes and exercisers. The pollen is the male seed of flowers, and is the food of the young bee. It’s considered as one of natures most completely nourishing foods, containing nearly all nutrients required by humans! Among them are proteins, free amino acids and vitamins, including B-vitamin and folic acid. In Chinese medicine and different cultures around the world bee pollen is used for reducing cravings and addictions, aiding recovery from chronic illness, building new blood and preventing diseases such as the flu and cold (as it has antibiotic type properties).

Share the ice creams with your friends, neighboors, kids and grannies! Enjoy the rest of the summer 🙂
