Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe – Ray Peat Inspired

Who doesn’t love strawberry ice cream?

I’ve been meaning to try the 4 cups of fruit and 1 tin sweetened condensed milk ice cream idea for a long time. I’m always looking for ways to utilise lots of fruit in yummy dishes for our pro metabolic diet. This is perfect with Summer coming on here in Australia.

I happened to have an unused container of sour cream that was rapidly heading for it’s use by date, so I thought I would use it up at the same time and see what transpired. This is the Strawberry Ice Cream recipe…

Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

Strawberry and Mango delight, perfect for summer.
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Healthy
Keyword: Fruit based, Healthy
Servings: 8

Equipment

  • 1 Food processor
  • 1 sealable plastic container

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries (chopped fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups mango (chopped fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 410g tin Skim Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract optional

Instructions

  • Whack all into a food processor or blender.
  • Whizz for a few minutes until well combined.
  • Transfer to a shallow, air tight container and freeze overnight.

It scoops best if you leave it out of the freezer for say 10 minutes before using.

It tasted beautiful in terms of texture and sweetness, but I’m not a fan of the fattiness of the sour cream. When you look at the nutrition stats below, it’s not too bad in terms of overall fat content. But I think I am more attuned to less fat these days and prefer that clean, fresh taste rather than fatty, buttery taste.

When I make it next time, I think I will put either cottage cheese in it like my high protein ice cream or low fat Greek yogurt. At least then it will fit more in our protein & fruit combinations, so we can eat it for breakfast in summer and have all macros balanced.

Here are the nutrition stats for the recipe above:

Whole recipe

1896 calories

42g protein

339g carbs

43g fat

It makes 8 serves with the stats below for each serve…

237 calories

5 g protein

42g carbs

5g fat

I’m actually surprised that it has that much protein in it at all.

Anyway, at least I had a chance to try it and it was delicious. I will certainly do it again when I finish this batch.

Happy eating and experimenting.

Pro Metabolic Diet Start Here

If you’re new to a Pro Metabolic Diet, this page was created to point you to all the articles on this website to get you started.

What is a Pro Metabolic Diet & Lifestyle?

A Pro Metabolic Diet is one that provides easily digestible and bioavailable foods that your body needs for optimal cellular metabolism. This ensures your body has all the fuel and specific nutrients to function at optimal capacity, which increases your metabolic rate. Your body therefore efficiently burns fat while at rest. The cells efficiently create energy from the balanced diet we eat.

The feeling is high energy, amazing health with little effort required.

Your thyroid gland controls your metabolism and the thyroid needs sufficient carbohydrates to function properly. This is why so many of us, including me after 10 years on a Keto Diet, ended up with low body temperatures, feeling cold all the time, close to pre diabetes, putting weight on without eating any more. and metabolism grinding to nearly a halt!

We also follow a Pro Metabolic Lifestyle because certain activities can lower your metabolic rate.  These activities include intense cardio, fasting, low calories, exercising on an empty stomach, and more. We need to learn better metabolism supporting habits. These activities include eating enough calories, developing muscle tone and getting out in the sunshine, which all enhance our metabolic rate.

A fantastic place to start is the:
