When you need a frosty treat, there’s nothing guilty about this dessert. It’s hydrating (thanks to the sneaky cucumber), packed with potassium AND tastes delish. You can make it choc-chip by stirring in cacao nibs too, if you’re partial to cookie dough ice-cream (who isn’t?!). Spirulina is a rich vegetable protein, and is used widely to boost the immune system thanks to its plethora of vitamins and minerals. It is also said to detox the body of heavy metals – now that’s one hard-working dessert!
