Sugar-Free Amazonian Jungle Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe (Keto, Paleo & Vegan) with Nootropics!

– Hi, I’m Sage.
Welcome back to the
Addictive Wellness channel.
Today, we’re gonna delve
into one of my favorite
ice cream creations.
We all have our favorite food memories
from when we were kids,
and often we associate these
as things that were amazing,
but now that we’ve embarked
upon this health journey,
maybe we’re never gonna have again
or maybe we’ll indulge on a cheat day
or on a birthday or something.
But it’s never something we could have
as our regular food, but it is possible.
If you’re gonna be clever and creative,
you can have anything in a
way that’s incredibly healthy
and just as good, if not better,
than what you may have
had when you were younger.
So, today we’re gonna go down the road
of peanut butter ice cream.
And of course we’re gonna put
some chocolate in afterwards
to bring back memories of
your favorite candy bar.
So the way we’re gonna do
this is starting out with ice.
We’ve got our purified ice cubes.
And instead of using conventional peanuts,
we are gonna use Amazonian jungle peanuts.
Conventional peanuts have a
big problem with aflotoxins.
This is a kind of mold that
has a serious negative effect
on your mitochondria, on your gut health,
on your brain health, it’s
just bad news all around.
But Amazonian jungle peanuts,
not only do they have these
amazing tiger stripes on them,
this is an heirloom peanut grown
in the jungle of the Amazon
by indigenous people.
But they are between zero
to one part per billion,
of aflotoxin, so much much lower
to potentially no aflotoxins at all
compared to what you would
get with normal peanuts.
So you’re gonna put about
three or four ounces in there
and that’s gonna give us
this delicious peanut flavor.
But there’s a trick.
If you, for whatever reason,
don’t like having any legumes
or nuts in what we’re making here,
there’s an alternative
and we’re gonna add that
in just a few minutes.
So next is gonna be hemp seeds.
This is also gonna contribute
to the really delicious
nutty flavor we’re creating,
and it’s gonna help to cream it up
and start to give it a
nice texture and hemp seeds
are a complete protein
and have a good amount
of plant based omega-3, 6, and 9 in them.
And they have a globular
protein called edestin,
which is great for the immune system.
Next we’re adding in lucuma.
This is kind of a superfood sidekick.
It’s not as crazy in terms
of the vitamins and minerals
and beneficial properties like something
like cacao would be, but
it’s pretty impressive.
It’s a good source of trace
minerals and B vitamins
and adds a nice caramel sweet flavor
without really having
a lot of carbohydrates
and sugar in it.
So in that goes.
Next is sunflower lecithin,
and this isn’t just
any sunflower lecithin.
Now of course going back a few years,
we didn’t have sunflower lecithin,
it was all soy lecithin
which had some beneficial
nutritional properties
but it’s coming from soy
which is almost all genetically modified
so it was never really
easy to get a clean source.
Now we have it from sunflower lecithin,
but there’s still some problems often
because most sunflower
lecithin is still processed
using hexane as a solvent,
so that is something that
they try to clear it out
and evaporate it off and remove it,
but there’s still gonna be
some hexane residues left
in most sunflower lecithin products,
so this is a special kind
that’s organic and cold pressed,
and that means it’s not
processed with solvents
so it’s gonna be hexane-free,
which is really great.
Now lecithin is high in choline,
which is an essential
nutrient that is really vital
for brain health and brain health
is something we’re gonna
focus on a lot here
because if you lose
your cognitive function,
if that starts to go downhill,
your entire life experience
starts to go downhill
so we really wanna guard against anything
that could be damaging your brains
and always be consuming the best nutrients
to support healthy cognitive function.
Now we’re gonna get into our tonic herbs.
So to continue on that same message
of the compounds that are
really great for the brain,
we’re putting in lion’s mane mushroom.
This is a mushroom that grows on trees
and it is great at promoting production
of NGF, which is a kind of a growth factor
that helps you regrow and
health your neural net.
So it’s making you smarter
and it’s also helping you
prevent long-term problems
that we can run into
like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Next up, cordyceps,
another medicinal mushroom
and it’s essentially a
synergistic family of fungi
that are able to improve
your oxygen utilization.
So from the air you’re breathing in,
more is actually making
it, more of that oxygen
is actually gonna make it to
your blood and to your brain.
And cordyceps in the
traditional Chinese system
is a Jing herb, it’s supporting that core
kidney adrenal and reserve
energy and it’s a Qi herb.
It’s supporting the
moment to moment energy.
So I love cordyceps
because it’s a great herb
to get people excited
about it and turn them on
to this amazing world
of Chinese tonic herbs
because they’re gonna get excited about it
’cause it’s gonna give them
a really great energy boost
and improve their endurance.
It’s like it’s putting more money
in their energy checking account
for them to use right away
but at the same time it’s
also working on a deeper level
and putting more money into
their energy savings account
and helping to build their core
deep vitality and life force.
So cordyceps is an amazing herb
that you can get just
about anybody excited about
and get them excited to
feel the immediate benefits
but then sneakily it’s also working
on really transforming their life force.
Next is astragalus, another
Qi tonic that is gonna improve
the moment to moment
cognitive function, vitality,
immune system function,
moment to moment energy
and it’s also really good
for the immune system.
A lot of these herbs have
these long chain sugars
called long chain
polysaccharides or beta-glucans
that attach to your white blood cells
and essentially give them
an operating system upgrade.
They’re teaching them how
to do their job better.
Now all that’s left is to add our oil
and we’re gonna use pumpkin seed oil,
Styrian pumpkin seed oil
and I told you there’s a way
that you can make this taste
like a peanut ice cream
without even using any kind of peanuts,
not even the jungle peanuts.
So you could have eliminated those
and just put in an ounce of
this Styrian pumpkin seed oil
and it has such an amazing flavor
that it’s gonna give you
the perfect peanut butter
ice cream flavor without even
putting any nuts in here,
it’s really incredible.
And so the Styrian pumpkin
seed is grown in Austria
and they grow it not even for its husk,
the kind of meat of the
pumpkin is not really edible.
That part is just used for other purposes
but the seeds are amazing.
They’re incredibly nutritious,
they’re like the elite pumpkin seed.
They’re like the SEAL
Team Six of pumpkin seeds
and when they make it into a oil
you’ll see in a second
when we pour it out,
it’s so dark green it’s
actually one of the highest
antioxidant oils, more
antioxidants than you would get
with just about any other
oil you’re gonna use.
And really high in zinc and
great for prostate health.
Okay, now the last step
here is we’re gonna add
our sweetener, it’s gonna
be stevia sweetened.
So this is gonna have great sweet flavor
without any kind of
impact on our blood sugar
and we’re not gonna have anything in there
that’s gonna be feeding
opportunistic organisms,
bacteria, parasites,
and these kinda things
that thrive on sugar, so we’re
not gonna feed those guys.
Okay, time to blend it up.
Okay, now that’s all
ready to go and of course
we’re gonna add some
fun toppings into here.
We’re gonna get our Addictive
Wellness Focus Chocolate
going in there with some of
the best brain herbs, too.
And we’re gonna have some bee pollen
and a couple more of these
Amazonian jungle peanuts,
and this is just gonna be a real treat,
I hope you guys enjoyed it.
