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
