Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, the Guilt Free Desert

By 0

Testing quick ice-cream recipes using healthy ingredients is my favorite activity ever since we came back from our summer holiday in Sardinia (the ice-cream heaven!).

The one of vibrant colors, splashes of ice cold water, dancing shades of tree leaves, one of inconstant flashes of beauty as Jep Gambardella used to say in my favorite movie, La Grande Belezza.
