Ice cream could possibly be the world’s most favorite dessert. Having said that, it often comes prepared and packed with many ingredients that do the body no good, such as artificial colors, saturated fats, excess sugars and others.
However, there are many ways in which you can turn your ice cream into a healthy treat that will both taste and feel good.
Turmeric represents a curry spice that has a very specific taste. Aside from its taste, turmeric is beyond healthy for the human organism, with experts using it on daily basis to the best of its advantage.
Turmeric is packed with antioxidants and possesses a great amount of anti-inflammatory properties. Also, turmeric has been proven successful in the treatment against cancer.
Turmeric’s main component is curcumin, which is the source of everything beneficial about this spice.

Coconut is packed with electrolytes and antioxidants, and stimulates the heart performance, while regulating the cholesterol levels in the body.
