  • NEW Chocolate Chip Almond Homemade Ice Cream

    Chocolate Chip Almond Homemade Ice Cream

    Homemade ice cream is the perfect way to make this very guilty pleasure into a healthy dessert great for the summer. In this episode of Clean Eating, Arielle Haspel shows you how to make an amazing chocolate chip almond homemade ice cream that you can enjoy completely guilt-free. First you are going to start off with the secret ingredient: frozen bananas. This is the key ingredient in making the blend really creamy, soft, and cold, and give it the right thickness for ice cream. Adding these into the blender, you will also add in 1 1/2 tablespoon of almond butter which will add texture and, most importantly, protein, into this mix. Almond butter is a great replacement for normal butter for this very reason (and of course the amazing nutty flavor that will complement the rest of the almond-y ingredients: the almond milk and the almond extract.) After adding in 1/4 cup of almond butter and a dollop of almond extract, you can add in some vanilla extract to make the ice cream even sweeter. Once you are done adding everything into the blender, you will start blending it at the slowest speed. If you see that this isn't doing much to blend in all the ingredients together, you can set it at a higher speed until it does. When you're checking if the blend is ready to be put into the freezer, make sure it looks thick and not too blended in as a smoothie would. You'll want this homemade ice cream to have the creamiest texture possible! Before freezing, you can top off this mixture with some cacao nibs, which come from the cocoa bean itself and have no added sugar, just pure antioxidants! Arielle also adds in some unsweetened shredded coconut to add to the flavor. Once ready, add this blend into the freezer for 20 minutes or even overnight and enjoy this healthy homemade ice cream full of flavor rather than guilt!

  • NEW Tomato Pico de Gallo

    Tomato Pico de Gallo

    Phoebe walks you through how to make pico de gallo in this video. Summer is the perfect opportunity to learn how to make pico de gallo because tomatoes are at their ripest peak during this time. This favorite seasonal treat is actually a general term used in Mexican cuisine for condiments that include jalapeno, onion, garlic, lime juice, and fresh cilantro. Phoebe's version uses orange and red cherry tomatoes that give this pico de gallo a cheery burst of color in addition to authentic Mexican flavor. As you prepare your ingredients, be sure to take out (and discard) the seeds and ribs of your jalapeno so you get the flavor but tone down the spiciness. Fresh lime juice is essential to this recipe to tie all of your flavors together. A helpful tip to get your lime extra juicy is to roll them on your cutting board as you apply pressure, which helps loosen up the juice. Once you know how to make pico de gallo, you'll have a colorful addition to top of any grilled meat or tacos you prepare. It even works wonderfully as an appetizer - just grab some chips and start dipping! Phoebe gives another great piece of advice on how to make pico de gallo. You can make it up to a day ahead of time to allow all of the flavors to marinate together for optimal yumminess. This is a dish you will want to add to your entertaining repertoire.
