My Mind-Blowing Summer Treat Creation: Baruka Butter Chocolate Creamsicle
Last weekend, for a popsicle party I hosted, I invented this melt-in-your-mouth (literally!) good Baruka Butter Chocolate Creamsicle recipe. Its primary star is….you guessed it: Barùkas® nuts.
What are they? Barùkas® nuts are packed with protein, fiber, and antioxidant power, with fewer fat calories than any other nut and taste like an addictively amazing combination of cashew and peanut.
One tiny handful of these nuts includes:
- High-quality protein, with all the essential amino acids
- More fiber than any other nut
- Generous amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, and zinc
- More antioxidant power than blueberries
For more info on these tasty nuts, go listen to my podcast with superfood hunter Darin Olien, and get your own bag at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/barukas (15% discount automatically applied at checkout).
So how do you make the mind-blowingly good creamsicles?
Step 1: For 8 popsicles in average size popsicle molds, mix into a blender the following and blend on medium-high for 60 seconds:
- 4 tablespoons Barùkas® nut butter
- 1 can coconut milk
- 8 dropperfuls Omica Organics Vanilla Stevia
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 ripe banana
Step 2: Freeze in popsicle molds for an hour.
Step 3: Pulverize a cup of Barùkas® nut into small chunks in a blender or mortar-and-pestle.
Step 4: Either melt Lily’s stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips to form a thin sauce OR stir together 1 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder, 1 tbsp melted coconut oil, and 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup or agave to form a chocolate sauce. Take one frozen creamsicle from the freezer, and dip it in the sauce.
Step 5: Sprinkle with the nut chunks or dip into the nut chunks to coat, then place the creamsicle on a sheet of wax paper and re-freeze. Repeat for remaining creamsicles.
Step 6: Bon appetit!
The Anti-Aging, Longevity-Enhancing, NAD/Caffeine/CBD Gum I've Been Waiting For
I've been wanting NAD+ gum to exist for a long time…
…and now it finally does.
My friend Craig Koniver, MD, who has been on my podcast, is the founder of Koniver Wellness and a pioneer in the field of innovative health supplements and treatments. All of Koniver Wellness’s products are developed through extensive research and feature potent ingredients and advanced delivery methods.
That being said, I'm not surprised that Craig was the one to develop PEAK gum.
The gum is comprised of 3 main ingredients—NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), caffeine, and CBD—which all work seamlessly together to help you feel more concentrated and energized, with an improved mood and lower stress. While caffeine and CBD are commonly known and available, with plenty of gums on the market, PEAK is the first to incorporate NAD+. I've talked extensively about the health benefits of NAD+ (check out my podcasts “The Next Big Anti-Aging Drug: Everything You Need To Know About “NAD”. and “The New Darling Supplement Of The Anti-Aging Industry (& The Truth About Whether It Actually Works”) and this article: “How To Keep Your NAD Levels Elevated (Without IVs) For Staving Off Aging, Cellular Health, Full Body Repair & Much More.”), and I've been injecting myself with this anti-aging coenzyme for a while now.
PEAK gum is a quick, effective way to microdose NAD+ on a daily basis—no needle necessary. I'm hooked!
