Super Bowl Sundae

My kids love when I make them fruity homemade ice cream in the Vitamix. For our pre-game Super Bowl party, we made Super Bowl Sundaes. I threw 2 cups of frozen mixed berries into my blender with 1 cup of zero percent vanilla Greek yogurt. I just discovered hemp hearts, a versatile superfood seed rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, so I added 1 Tbsp into the mix. (It was undetectable!). I blended the three ingredients on the “ice cream” setting for about 55 seconds, or until until it became one consistency. I used the tamper to push all the fruit down into the blades. Scoop this treat into bowls quickly or it begins to soften and melt. Tonight, I gave my kids free reign with the toppings. I put out bowls of blueberries (another superfood), 70 percent dark chocolate chips, and something new we’re trying: dark chocolate almond butter, which I melted in the microwave for about 20 seconds so they could drizzle it on like chocolate sauce. It was a touchdown!

Tip: Do you have frozen strawberries or blueberries? Or plain yogurt instead of Greek? This is a recipe you can’t mess up, though your kids can get quite messy! Any frozen fruit will work, and if you’re using plain yogurt, try adding a tablespoon of raw honey to counter the plainness of the yogurt. Top with more fruit or even granola for a fun breakfast idea.
