Health Benefits of These Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches
Protein To Support Your Connective Tissue
These ice cream sandwiches contain a secret ingredient that may be the key to keeping your connective tissue healthy and vibrant. The ingredient? Collagen.
Collagen makes up a vital aspect of your connective tissue, which provides support and structure throughout your body. Healthy connective tissue is crucial for the proper function of your joints, to keep your bones healthy, and to fend off signs of aging like wrinkling skin.
In fact, research shows that taking collagen supplements can help reverse signs of aging by increasing skin elasticity and improving hydration[*].
Rich in Antioxidants
The ingredients in this ice cream sandwich recipe are not only perfect tailored to keep your blood sugar low — but they’re also packed with nutrients. In fact, there are several sources of antioxidant compounds in these delicious treats. These include:
- Almonds — Almonds are rich in vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant that can protect your cell membranes from oxidative stress[*].
- Cocoa powder — Cocoa is a food that’s packed with flavonoid antioxidant compounds. The antioxidants in cocoa are particularly beneficial for heart health and the prevention of cardiovascular disease[*].
- Monk fruit — Monk fruit, an alternative sweetener used in both the cookies and ice cream, contains an antioxidant compound called mongroside. Research shows that mogroside not only contributes to blood sugar regulation but also combats oxidative stress at the same time[*].
