Healthy Ice Cream Bread

Hi there, all!! We are passed hump day and almost to the weekend! Do you have any fun plans? My brother and I are doing the amazing charity race (a play off of the show the Amazing Race). I’m not sure exaxtly what to expect, but it should be fun! I haven’t seen him in a long time so I’m excited about that!

So, as I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day, I saw this delightful looking recipe: ice cream bread. Um, what!?! It looked so tasty, and I though that maybe I could make a healthy version. I read somewhere not to use low fat or fat free ice cream, but I figured I would try it anyway. Well, lucky for me and all you healthy folks out there, that person was WRONG! I used Red Velvet Halo Top ice cream and it turned out perfect!! It definitely is a very subtle sweetness, but for me, I loved that! I added some honey to top mine off, but it would be even better with a scoop of ice cream on the side.  YUM!!! 

The original recipe calls for a pint of ice cream and self rising flour. I didn’t have self rising flour, but thanks to Google, I learned that baking powder and flour (I used white whole wheat) make it self rising. I love taking recipes and putting a healthy spin on them! This was SO easy and I hope you love it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pint of halo top ice cream (I used red velvet)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • A pinch of sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Spray a bread pan with cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray) and set aside
  • Mix dry ingredients 
  • Thoroughly mix ice cream with dry ingredients
  • Pour batter into bread pan
  • Bake 35 minutes 
  • Remove from oven and enjoy plain, topped with honey, or serve with ice cream



It was hard to stop eating!

I hope you enjoy!!! Have an awesome day!

With love, 

Carly
