Salted Caramel Ice Cream With Rosemary Essential Oils
What do you think about when someone mentions rosemary? If you’re anything like me your mind automatically goes to one thing – savoury, delicious food! Holy goodness, rosemary is one serious herb packing a powerful punch in the flavour department. And isn’t it wonderful how it compliments so many dishes?
But guess what? It gets a heck of a lot cooler than that! When we take a look at all of the awesomeness rosemary has to offer we definitely don’t leave disappointed. Rosemary brings a good supply of calcium, fiber and iron to the table. And we also have vitamin A, C, folate, magnesium, manganese, and even a little Omega 3 Fatty Acid hanging out in there too.
And if that wasn’t already enough goodness, this adorable little herb can help to reduce inflammation and fight off free radicals thanks to some potent antioxidants (source). It may even help to prevent or reduce the severity of asthma attacks, increase sperm mobility, lower your risk of peptic ulcers and cataracts and so much more (source). How freaking cool is that?!
If you’re feeling a little brain fog, rosemary is by your side; it’s been shown to increase blood flow to the brain, making it a little easier to focus and even improving your mood (source). Super bonus – you can tap into this benefit by simply enjoying the wonderful aroma that rosemary has to offer (where are my essential oils at, am I right?!)
My favourite part – it is so easy to tap into a lot of these benefits on the regular when you keep rosemary essential oils on hand. And since oils are so concentrated you really only need a drop or two to tap into major flavour! Which means that a single bottle is going to last you a long flipping time.
And since dessert is, in my opinion, one of the best places to start I figured we could begin our rosemary essential oil journey with a Salted Caramel Ice Cream with Rosemary Essential Oils. Care to join me?
If you’re staring at the screen wondering how we went from talking about health benefits and getting all excited about nutrients to ice cream don’t you worry! Healthifying dessert happens to be one of my specialties. This ice cream is vegan and gluten free and while it tastes totally sinful it’s definitely not. Because dessert should never be something you have to feel guilty about.
I hope that you enjoy this delectable dessert as much as I do!
Health and love,
