In Pursuit of Optimal Digestive Health

Maqui Berry & Basil Ice Cream

Where my dairy-free, ice cream-lovers at?!

Swaps for conventional products (like ice cream!), that have nourishing, health-building and anti-inflammatory ingredients instead, is a quick-and-easy way to keep unnecessary inflammation and gut disruption at bay.

If you've been following my nutritional + lifestyle content for some period of time now, you know I'm ALL ABOUT:

  • Knowing what's in your food (reading the ingredient list)
  • Building your health via anti-inflammatory ingredients, and
  • Having fun in your own kitchen with pantry/fridge staples that you build up over time!


A lot of things in life are pretty darn easy to make from scratch, and an oh-so-satisfying, dairy-free ice cream with super-fresh ingredients is one of them!

Like all of my recipes, each carefully-selected ingredient serves a purpose and contributes to SATISFACTION.

Most unfortunately, conventional ice creams are laden with:

  • Refined sugars
  • Artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners
  • Chemical additives, preservatives and emulsifiers, and
  • Heavily refined/processed dairy

...among the rest of the laundry list of ingredients on those packages. They're long!


But, I've got you...like I always do!

Have you heard of Canadian small business SMOOV™?

Their organic, Superfood Blends, Superfood PowdersAll-In-One Blends, and Bulk Ingredients, including several freeze-dried ingredients, are highly anti-inflammatory ingredients and nutrient-DENSE!

Maqui Berry is an exotic, deep-purple fruit that grows wild in South America. SMOOV™'s (organic) Maqui Berry powder is sustainably sourced from Chile – freeze-dried to lock in and preserve the nutrients…and the flavour!

Like other berries, and because it’s so darkly pigmented, it’s a powerful source of a group of antioxidants, called Anthocyanins.

These berries are highly anti-inflammatory, not overly sweet and have a bit of a tart taste.
