Bitter Chocolate Yogurt Ice Cream



Last weekend, physically, I was not feeling very well. Nothing seemed to taste good so I decided to create an ice cream which would have a strong taste.  The original recipe did not include honey, but since the ice cream really tasted bitter I decided to add a tablespoon of honey to give it a more balanced flavor.

I was quite pleased with the result. The only “negative” aspect of this recipe is that if you keep it in the freezer over night, it becomes hard and you have to microwave it for 20 seconds before you serve it.

    It's amazing how your mind controls or is in sync with your behaviour. Look at how she was feeling unwell (physically) and decided to try something new. I guess in the end it made her feel better after she conditioned the desert to suit to her taste. She also gained more energy when she created the desert. So if you are feeling unwell, physically and mentally, do something fun or creative, that should boost your morale and your enhance your energy drive. You will definitely feel better about everything else and yourself. That's how I relate this to Psychology.

  24. Your dessert recipe looks terrific and decadent (even though the yogurt makes it healthier). I agree with Glenna above. Sometimes you have to "pull yourself up" by trying something new or different (like creating a new recipe) to refresh your mind and regenerate your body. Sometimes going outside your "comfort zone" can change your perspective and you can better cope with problems in your life. But sometimes folks will do things that are self-destructive and do bad things to deal with the problems they have in their lives; that just leads to even more problems!! So we should find ways to add a little "honey" (figuratively) to our lives. ~Michelle M.

  25. Looks yummy,can't wait to try it. Dark chocolate is heathly comparing to other things. Yogurt sounds really good with dark chocolate. Its crazy how when we not feeling really good physically, one thing we go for is chocolate. But the truth is that chocolate has this certain chemical stuff that stimulate that brain which help reduce stress.
