Summer Shakeology Ice Cream

There is nothing I love more than ice cream on hot summer nights, but truth be told ice cream and my stomach do not get along.  Honestly, too much dairy or sugar and I completely regret and almost hate ice cream.  But I'm a woman and occasionally my sweet tooth has a hankering, so I conjured up my own Summer Shakeology Ice Cream recipe to share with you.  In fact, this is one my whole family will eat too.

Summer Shakeology Ice Cream

- 1 scoop vegan vanilla Shakeology
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (or milk of choice)
- splash of water, to help it blend
- a pinch of Xanthum gum (you do not need much!)
- 3 drops stevia-based caramel extract
- lots of ice (I use two handfuls)
- stevia based chocolate sauce (optional)

- I combine all of these ingredients in my blender
- Blend on med-high for 45 seconds to 1 minute
- You may need to occasionally pause and open the blender and help the ice move

Serve ice cream in a dish.  Toppings are optional.  I couldn't help but drizzle a bit of chocolate sauce onto my ice cream to make it really feel like a summer treat though!
