Detox is a buzzword we hear everywhere these days, but few of us understand why our body needs to cleanse, and cleanse often. Detox is important for everyone, even for those who feel perfectly healthy. (And especially for those who are struggling with a health problem or are feeling sick.)
The Body Ecology Diet itself is a cleansing diet since it's designed to be gluten-free, sugar-free, and casein-free, just like this tasty ice cream recipe. Sometimes, cleansing can take more interactive forms, like moving through Stage 1 of The Body Ecology Diet or using home enemas. But many times, cleansing can be as simple as eating healthier foods and beverages each day to help your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Toxins can then be purged through your natural detoxification pathways, including skin, sweat, bowel movements, and urine.
Cleansing is the cornerstone of our Body Ecology Antiviral Protocol. If you can't kick a virus, find out more here.
Remember, this is what your body was designed to do. And with delicious and healing homemade recipes like our sugar-free and gluten-free mint ice cream, you're just helping it along in its ability to cleanse.
We have plenty more healthy and flavorful recipes where this came from. Check out our full recipe collection here.

Step 1: Add 12-16 ounces of filtered ice.
Step 2: Now add 5 heaping tablespoons non-denatured, raw whey protein to thicken. (Use Body Ecology Fermented Pea Protein if you are a vegan; or, skip and double tocotrienols and maca instead.)
Step 3: Scoop in 2 tablespoons Vitality SuperGreen for color and chlorophyll.
Step 4: Add 1 tablespoon of maca for energy, endurance, and vitality.
Step 5: Scoop in ½ teaspoon Super Spirulina Plus for dense nutrition.
Step 6: Add 2 tablespoons tocotrienols, or vitamin E, for a light, creamy texture.
Step 7: Sprinkle in 2 scoops EcoBloom, a chicory root inulin FOS, to feed the good bacteria in your gut.
Step 8: Break open and add 2 capsules of LivAmend, providing herbal digestive support and antioxidant protection for the liver.
Step 9: Pour in 1 packet of Kefir Starter (without making kefir) as an extra probiotic to eat up toxins and pathogens.
Step 10: Pick fresh, organic mint leaves to add to the top of the mixture in the blender, or add 1/2 teaspoon mint extract or 1 drop of mint essential oil if fresh mint is unavailable.
Step 11: Add 1 dropperful of Body Ecology unfiltered Stevia for natural sweetness, without an artificial taste.
Step 12: Add 1 tablespoon fresh, hand-pressed, organic flaxseed oil for a final touch of creaminess (balancing out the powders in the recipe).
Step 13: Blend on high, checking often to avoid over-blending, until mixture reaches ice cream texture. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cacao nibs on top and mix by hand. (Optional once on Stage 2 of the Body Ecology Diet.)
Step 14: Serve and enjoy this creamy treat that benefits your gut, vitality, and overall health! This detox-friendly dessert will satisfy your sweet tooth and build your body up as you cleanse.
