Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

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.
