You can use full-fat Greek yogurt or any percentage of fat, however the more fat, the creamier the frozen yogurt will be.

Eat up! 🙂
Chia is a Superfood. These tiny little seeds are the highest combined plant source of omega-3, fibre and protein. They help support your body’s natural detoxification pathways, repair your cells, reduce inflammation and support a healthy digestive system. They are about 14% protein, which is high compared to most plants! A diet higher in protein has been shown to help reduce appetite, improve muscle repair, and even curb nighttime snacking by 50%, which makes them a great addition to your diet if you’re trying to maintain or lose weight.
Vanilla is an aphrodisiac food and good for your libido, but also at enhancing hormones in the body (oxytocin, dopamine) that are associated with love and happiness. These make you feel happy, lighthearted, and in love with all things in life. Vanilla adds a warming, sweet, and rounded flavor that compliments just about any sweet treat it’s added to.
Bananas, vanilla beans and chia seed are also rich in potassium. It’s needed for healthy blood pressure levels, and assists with water regulation in the body, proper heart contractions, and helps balance the body’s electrolytes. Good for your mood, it can help you to relax and reduces stress and tension.
One serving of Gorilla Gains Ice Cream has only 93,5 calories. Due to the fact that it provides 22% protein, feel free to enjoy it after your workout or simply when you feel like having sweet delicious ice cream!
Sending my love, Aya.
