Chocolate milkshake!

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I want one sooo bad. I crave chocolate ice cream like it's my job. It's my favorite thing, and since I started reading labels (ingredients labels, peeps, not the fat/calories part) I found that Haagen Daaz uses ONLY real cream, real milk, real egg yolks, and real sugar, plus whatever the flavor is: real coffee, real vanilla beans, real cocoa, real strawberries. No soybean oil, no hydrogenated anything, no preservatives, no thickeners/stabilizers.

By the way, what the hell are stabilizers and thickeners doing in ice cream? How do you justify adding things to ice cream to make it more ice cream-y? Is it because HFCS doesn't emulsify like it should? Whatever. Give me the real deal. I'll pay a premium for it.

I just want it all the time. I don't care how many Whole30s I do or how long I eat paleo. I crave chocolate ice cream. Nothing else, really. Not cinnamon rolls, cookies, pasta, or crackers. Those are passing thoughts. Just chocolate ice cream. I purposely don't eat it except as a treat after at least 3 weeks eating strictly low-carb.

What's that? "You shouldn't reward healthy eating with unhealthy food"?

Bite me. I do what I want.

    I just made a shake for the 1st time with milk, a frozen banana and dark chocolate PB and it was awesome! I felt like I was committing some kind of fraud crime! haha

    When I need it, I just mix in real cocoa with real cream and real cinnamon and stir.

    Haagen Daaz strawberry is my favorite! Until I learned how to make my own ice cream. I don't make it very often, but when I do, it is a real treat! There's a small batch of homemade raspberry sorbet in my freezer that I'll take a scoop of a couple times per week.

    I eat non low-carb foods...just not all the time. 3 servings of whole grains per day is insane. I had a slice of bread with butter last Saturday, and that has been my only grain serving since then. I'm not going for any low-carber of the year awards - just living my life. :)

    I like the coffee and the chocolate together. But the dark chocolate sounds yummy.

    Dude, Haagen Daazs Dark Chocolate. Check the ingredient list - nothing but cream, milk, sugar, egg yolks, and cocoa. And soooooo satisfying! It's the only ice cream that lasts in my freezer because it's THAT chocolate-y. A little goes a hella long way.

    Life's too short to forgo ice cream completely. Hells yeah for the good stuff!
