Chocolate Ice Cream (That’s Good for You!)

Dive into this delicious healthy chocolate ice cream bowl in replacement of your Friday night connoisseur tub (we’ve all been there let’s not talk about it.) This bowl honestly tastes so delicious and has so many beautiful benefits to enrich your body – full of healthy fats and raw cacao which is a great superfood full of antioxidants ( so when you drizzle chocolate on top try and aim for something super dark!) Interestingly I recently listened to a podcast about how caffeine can impact the way your body absorbs iron so if you are having this as a dessert after a meal try and wait one hour before your cacao fix! Otherwise for brekkie or a snack it is also great. Top with your favourite goodies, try aim for something crunchy as the texture goes well with the thickness of the ice cream. Don’t forget to share your creations with me if you make it on insta! @scoopitup_

Method
