Avocado Mango Nice Cream (Healthy Ice Cream)

Print

Ever wanted to know how your favorite Instagrammers create those beautiful, icy smoothies piled high in their Mason jars? I’ve finally figured out the perfect recipe, and it’s just as delicious as it looks (with an added boost of my favorite superfood-collagen)! Further Food Collagen has a multitude of nutritional benefits- some of the most famous being strengthening your hair, skin, and nails, and providing support for your bones and joints.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe features great superfoods, particularly avocados. Avocados are a rich source of folate, vitamin A and potassium. Avocados should be served raw and has useful amounts of protein, iron, magnesium and vitamins C, E, and B6. Collagen, the most abundant protein in the body, is part of the connective tissue for bones, muscles, blood cells, cartilage, arteries, and organs. When you consume collagen powder, your digestive system breaks down the proteins into amino acids. Amino acids are used as building blocks that support collagen production throughout the body.

I’m thrilled to welcome you to Further Food.
I started Further Food because I believe in the power of food - to nourish, to prevent disease. But... what happens when we get sick with a chronic illness? Or when someone we love gets diagnosed? How can food and diet changes help the healing process? Help better manage symptoms - naturally?
These were the questions I was struggling with when I started Further Food.
Last year, my father was diagnosed with diabetes II. We were shocked because my mother cooks very healthfully. But my dad sneaks in a lot of processed, unhealthy foods while he was on the road, which is much of the time.  Sound familiar?
Around the same time, one of my best friends was struggling with IBS and another was going through a bad Ulcerative Colitis flare. I wanted to help, but didn't know how. So I turned to the internet to do research. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and often depressing.  I got sucked into these forums, but couldn't easily find the information I was looking for. And that's when I thought  - there must be a better way to help people discover how to use food to combat various aliments...in an easy-to-use, beautiful, and fun way!
And that's how Further Food was born. In my research, I have helped my dad change his diet. He is now 15 lbs lighter, has cut back on processed foods, and decreased his total daily carbs. The journey isn't over, but he's doing so much better! #winningdad. I've showed him Tiffany's inspiring story of how she reversed her diabetes and shared her "Phase I" meal plan with him.  My friend has changed her diet to dramatically to reduce her IBS symptoms, and I have recently introduced her to the FODMAP diet - one that I discovered from the contributors on Further Food!  With my urging, my other friend with Ulcerative Colitis, tried going gluten-free and found that his 'pain-level' dramatically reduced within a week of making the dietary changes!
These powerful experiences, along with the stories I hear daily from Further Food's Health Heroes, inspire me to keep going further.  I am so deeply honored to be spear-heading this important work of using crowd-sourced data to find food-based solutions for a variety of health conditions. I believe in the wisdom of your stories, the strength of our community, and in the power of celebrating food as we get healthy together.
Help us spread the word about what we're doing, because we're just getting started!
 
Bio: I have dedicated my career to building and funding mission driven companies, specifically in the health and wellness space. Further Food is the culmination of my experiences, and reflects my belief that companies should do well and do good. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and love to surf, run, tango, travel and cook. My BA is from Brown University and my MPP from Harvard University.
