With summer just around the corner, there is no better treat on a hot day than Ice Cream. Unfortunately, ice cream isn’t on the 21 day fix approved recipe list. However, there are amazing 21 day fix sorbet and ice cream alternative recipes you can indulge in. Best of all, you can make them using fruit and high protein foods like yogurt and cottage cheese. The recipes I am sharing do NOT count as a “treat” yellow container because there is no added sugar! You can make them using purple and red containers (fruits and proteins).
All you need to make this is frozen fruit, a protein source, sweetener and cinnamon (if you like!). I like using cinnamon with cottage cheese to help neutralize the flavor. However you MUST use a food processor for this sorbet recipe. A blender just won’t cut it unfortunately!
Feel free to make variations of this recipe. You can swap the frozen strawberries for other frozen fruit items including sliced bananas, raspberries, mango or blueberries! You can also add in other ingredients like all-natural cocoa to give it a chocolate flavor or pure vanilla extract. Experiment and have fun with it. Remember that dieting doesn’t have to be hard or restrictive. You just need to find delicious recipes that incorporate your favorite foods!
