Rich, velvety, creamy, and decadent… what more could you ask for in ice cream??

I guess a little side of “healthy” wouldn’t hurt, right?

WAIT. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute. You’re telling me that this ice cream is… good for me?!?

Ohhhhh YES!

And it’s made with a secret ingredient too. A secret healthy ingredient.

Okay, I can’t keep the secret any longer. The secret ingredient is a VEGETABLE…

Any guesses?

BEETS!

Yep, this 85-calorie Red Velvet Ice Cream contains A VEGETABLE.
But don’t worry, you can’t taste it. Trust me, I despise beets but I love this ice cream. I could marry this ice cream, that’s how delicious it is. I’ve made it five times already. It’s the only reason I’ve been buying beets lately.

This is the perfect recipe for when you are in need of some (guilt-free) indulgence! It’s smooth and creamy, and totally delicious.

This easy, homemade ice cream is like red velvet cheesecake in ice cream form… but with a little healthy oomph!

For a nutrition label comparison, here are the nutrition facts for Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Ice Cream.

WOW. Really? A half-cup serving of ice cream with 250 calories, 8g of saturated fat and 23g of sugar?? No thanks. I’ll take my healthified version. Their ice cream has a pretty unhealthy ingredient list and nutrition label.

My recipe has ⅓ the calories of Ben & Jerry’s, so you can help yourself to another serving (or two), guilt-free! My recipe not only saves you calories, but it saves you fat, saturated fat, carbs, and sugar too. Yeah, let’s avoid the store-bought ice creams that are packed with refined white sugar, hormone-filled heavy cream, artificial flavorings, and artificial food dyes.

I mean, c’mon, my ice cream has a vegetable in it. That means an extra scoop for you! And an extra scoop for me too 😉
