NOTE: The Recipe Index has finally been updated.

When I put breakfast ice cream on our menus last week y’all jumped all over it. I can’t say that I blame you. Ice cream is my favorite food… so is peanut butter… and chocolate… and cream. But I digress.

My goal with this is to serve something really cold on a hot morning. This allows us to stay cool when we don’t have air conditioning and more importantly keeps the kitchen cool.

This dish is basically a super smoothie in soft-serve ice cream form. I pack as many nutrient dense foods full of protein and good fats as I possibly can. The possibilities are endless, but I will share with you the version that my family has been loving lately.

Oh and I have a low-carb, dairy-free, egg nog version of this that I am enjoying.

Very Berry Breakfast Ice Cream

Recipe Notes: I usually serve this alongside something else, especially for the men. Leftover oatmeal, buckwheat, or coconut flour pancakes keep the entire breakfast cook-free. This also makes a great dessert to a big salad on a hot night.

Ingredients

  • ~ 3 cups frozen berries
  • 1 cup raw walnuts, soaked overnight with a pinch of salt
  • 1-2 raw eggs or egg yolks
  • 1-1 1/2 cups whole milk yogurt or coconut milk
  • 1-2 T chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of stevia or 1-2 tablespoons raw honey

Directions

  1. Add frozen berries to food processor. Pulse a few times to break them up. Add all other ingredients and blend until desired consistency, 2-4 minutes.
  2. Adjust thickness by adding more fruit or yogurt/milk. Adjust sweetness to taste. Enjoy!

Do you have any no-cook breakfast ideas?
