Make This Now

Two posts in one day? Yep, couldn’t wait to share this one. Another Mae inspired dish…After reading her post today, I knew I had to try adding nutritional yeast to some protein ice-cream. However, I left out the protein and whipped up a bowl of fat-cream instead. 😉

Key Lime Cheesecake Ice-Cream


Into the Vita-Mix went:

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 avocado

juice from 1/2 lime (real lime…none of that concentrated stuff)

1/2 tsp vanilla

sweetener to taste (I used stevia)

1 tsp nutritional yeast

pinch of Celtic sea salt

1/4 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp guar gum

Blend until thick and creamy and then add 15 ice cubes and blend again.

Topping choices are endless, but unsweetened shredded coconut is a must! Mine received a few walnuts as well. I was in the mood for a little crunch.


I was bit nervous about adding nutritional yeast, but Mae was right. It added such a light cheesy flava…and besides, y’all know I’ll eat anything that sounds weird. Thanks for the idea Mae! Because of you, I am going to have to restock my nutritional yeast very soon. :)

Enjoy the rest of your evening my friends.
