The Ice Cream That Gets You High

This heavenly rich and malty flavored ice cream doesn’t contain cannabis or THC, but it does contain an herb that around these parts we call Glow and is renowned for its anti-aging and gray hair reversing effects, among many other benefits.**

Glow (aliases: He Shou Wu, Fo-Ti, and Polygonum multiflorum) is an herb that is often put in first place (out of thousands of other herbs) by tonic herbalists as the most health transforming and nutrient dense tonic bang for your buck in Chinese Medicine. I was first introduced to it one night ten years ago by a well known nutrition teacher who emptied out several capsules of He Shou Wu into his raw ice cream from Cafe Gratitude. He got very blissed out yet was looking deeply calm, rejuvenated and sharp. His state of consciousness was sustainably enhanced. I was so envious because I didn’t get any of that ice cream and I wanted those benefits for myself in the form of an extra blissful and guiltless frozen dessert experience!

The Ice Cream That Gets You HighThat evening planted a seed in me to, after many years, launch my own extra powerful, consciously sourced, tasty and UNencapsulated He Shou Wu extract, now called GLOW.

Also in the time since, I’ve created about 500 ‘alternative’ (my body doesn’t like cream and sugar) ice cream recipes. Most of these contained heroic doses of tonic herbs: Frozen dessert nutrition therapy at its finest!

Today I present an ice cream with the hero’s dose of Glow He Shou Wu to get the eater high, motivated, euphoric, mentally and physically enhanced, youthenned, self reflective, socially lubricated yet crystal clear. Unlike most of my recipes, this is not a recipe for everyday use (unless you ease back the He Shou Wu dosage). In fact, if you eat this whole recipe (which I recommend you do slowly) don’t plan on driving or operating heavy machinery for a couple hours. Why? All good reasons. Don’t worry, this recipe makes the mind sharp as a tack and makes one fully physically and mentally functional with a smaller dose, but in a larger dose it can make dopamine levels extra high which can sometimes make driving a car overwhelming for such a happy brain.**

He Shou Wu is an MAO-B inhibitor, which naturally inhibits the body’s own rate of dopamine breakdown thus allowing dopamine levels to gently rise. An increase in breakdown and lower levels of dopamine and decrease in MAO-B inhibitor levels, typical of people 40 or 50 years of age and older, is associated with mental distress and rising rates of mental imbalance.**

The Ice Cream That Gets You HighThere is no habit forming or addiction associated with He Shou Wu. In fact for those dealing with addiction (drugs, porn, Facebook, gambling, sugar, bread, and other substances and activities that unsustainably reward your brain with dopamine but ultimately cause a tolerance and dopamine crash) He Shou Wu may be helpful in gently biohacking your brain to feel healthy, sharp, motivated, satisfied, stress resilient, nourished, happy, loving and less prone to impulsively engage in addictions.**

In larger doses He Shou Wu is a very mild laxative. If you’re constipated that’s usually great news. If it causes you loose stools, just ease up and stick to a normal dosage which is about 1 teaspoon (this ice cream recipe contains several teaspoons of He Shou Wu).

This recipe has many ingredient options in hopes that you can both more easily gather a minimal set of ingredients (many of them at natural foods stores, many on Amazon) and select which ingredients you think you’d prefer based on existing taste and dietary preferences and sensitivities.

The one ingredient that isn’t optional is the Glow He Shou Wu itself. Glow is a very taste-compliant (it’s slightly bitter by itself but when mixed and sweetened it takes on a pleasant malty nutty flavor – other He Shou Wu extracts tend to be terribly astringent which will ruin the ice cream for your tongue) and potent (it takes 16 pounds of prepared dried he shou wu roots to make just 1 pound of this Glow extract powder which contains about 8% stilbene glycosides – resveratrol-like antioxidants that make He Shou Wu so cell-protective and anti-aging. 8% stilbenes is a truly and significantly biologically active** amount and other He Shou Wu products are either half or a quarter this amount or they just don’t test for it at all and you don’t know what you’re getting.)

Recipe: The Healthful Ice Cream That Gets You High and Glowing!

Blend in blender for 30 seconds:

2 organic pasture-raised egg yolks (no whites) or 1-2 tablespoons of non-GMO lecithin

1/3 cup organic refined coconut oil or ghee or butter or cacao butter

1/3 cup sweet LUV (a sugar free sweetener) or any sweetener of choice (maple sugar, honey, etc.)

1/4 cup protein powder (collagen protein powder, colostrum powder, grass fed whey, plant based protein powders, etc.)

1/4 cup a different from above protein powder (collagen protein powder, colostrum powder, grass fed whey, plant based protein powders, etc.)

1-3 TABLESPOONS Longevity Power GLOW He Shou Wu (Beginner’s, use 1 tablespoon. He Shou Wu experienced, cautiously use more to insure the title of this recipe HIGHly lives up to its name.**)

2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

Just barely 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

3/4 cup warmed spring water

OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup organic cacao/cocoa powder
OPTIONAL: 1 pinch stevia extract, to taste, if using more Glow He Shou Wu

Pour into ice cream maker or pour into bowl and let set in refrigerator for 2 hours, then whisk to aerate and place in freezer for several hours. Eat as much as you’d like, but not all at once if you are new to such heroic doses (I’m serious about this, go easy, be gentle, be kind to your brain and you digestive system). Share with a lover, a friend or family members with whom you’d like to deepen your connection.

Hi. Christian Bates here, founder of Longevity Power. It’s time to show you my latest in superfood creations: My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream which features some ancient foods to help you succeed at your allergy free high nutrition living so that you can make your health and fitness goals come true!**

You’ll notice in the title that I did not say ‘Dairy Free.’ Keep an open mind as I explain. I’m about to introduce to you  something that is neither vegan, nor raw. Okay, it’s an all out cooked animal product.

I know, I know… you’re thinking “Christian…my bro… I’m into adding in more raw plant foods into my life, not more cooked animal foods. You must be trippin.’ ”

Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe (Casein Free, Sugar Free, Very Low Glycemic) + Ghee Explained

Let me explain. I’m into balance, not labeling myself (but I am into labels on food products and I am for labeling of GMOs!); I love adding in the very best from every tradition. I’m into the cleansing aspects of hardcore raw vegan approaches, but several years (yep, I was a raw vegan for that long) of avoiding animal products just starts to feel bad. The body aches for what it needs.

According to a several thousand year old vegetarian/mostly vegetarian tradition practiced by billions of people called Ayurveda, this cooked animal fat is considered life itself. Whoa! It’s called Ghee. And it’s what the Ayurvedic doctor ordered.

For all the people who aren’t ready to try ghee, I won’t be pushy. I’m going to give you strategic and tasty options to make this ice cream a vegan/dairy free one, but I also invite (gently persuade) you to try an amazing ingredient which is the only milk product I regularly ‘do’ at this time (or maybe will ever do because all other forms of dairy except this one give me a mucus reaction): Ghee.

Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe (Casein Free, Sugar Free, Very Low Glycemic) + Ghee Explained

Freshly made ghee in glass

Ghee is the traditional Ayurvedic clarified butter. It’s pure butter oil with nearly 100% of the casein, lactose, milk solids and water removed. It’s made from organic grass-fed cow butter. Butter is 80% oil, 20% milk. Ghee is 100% oil, 0% milk. It’s pure essential fats – like coconut oil or cacao butter, but it’s an animal product and is high in CLA (Conjugated linoleic acids), a category of fatty acids that has been shown to have anticancer properties, strengthen immune function, and help the human body healthfully burn fat and healthfully reduce body fat deposits.

And yet it’s not raw. Ghee is made by cooking butter just above 200*F to coax the milk solids to separate off, leaving the pure butter oil. This process gives ghee a most enjoyable butterscotch flavor (before artificial flavors, butterscotch flavor was literally made from scorching butter, or ‘butter-scorch’.)

So why is ghee so fabulously healthy even though it is cooked? Well it’s just like coconut oil, which is highly resistant to oxidation from heat. Perhaps you have heard that coconut oil is consider the healthiest oil with which to cook. Well, I put coconut oil in 2nd place. Ghee is the most healthful to cook with and has an even higher smoking temperature. It’s healthy saturated fat content protects it from oxidation during heat. But, like all oils, ghee should be kept in glass, away from plastic and away from direct sunlight and be used as fresh as possible for the most health benefits.

I recommend Ancient Organics Ghee. These guys rock, are local to me (as is the farm they get their butter from), and obey the Ayurvedic details when they make the ghee (like only making it during the full or waxing moons.)

 

My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe tastes like vanilla butterscotch carmel with a hint of foresty goodness from all the adrenal-restoring tonic herbs in it.

Feel free to double this recipe.

 

Blend in blender on medium-high for at least 1 minute until very warm (so that the fats emulsify):

2 1/2 tablespoon ghee (or warm coconut oil or melted cacao butter, but ghee will give it the best ice cream flavor and texture without the ice cream allergens)

1 1/2 tablespoon non-GMO lecithin powder

1/2 can (7 oz) BPA-free canned full-fat organic coconut milk (Native Forest Organic Classic Coconut Milk is great)

1 free-range organic egg yolk or additional 1 teaspoon non-GNO lecithin powder (if you choose egg yolk, you are deciding for yourself how to handle raw egg yolk so use your very best judgement)

 

Then add and blend on high for 20 seconds:

2 tablespoons non-GMO glycerin (this is really low glycemic amazing stuff!) or sweetener of choice (honey, etc.)

1 1/2 tablespoons spring water

1 teaspoon Maca Bliss

1 teaspoon Goji Joy

1 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1/2 teaspoon Prepared He Shou Wu extract powder

1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder (use less if you are sensitive to stevia, use a touch more if you love stevia!)

1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste

OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon Longevity Spirulina (best tasting spirulina!)

Pour into an ice cream maker, or into a bowl to set for a few hours in the freezer. Scoop into a small serving bowl and drizzle with Edible Goddess Chocolate Gold (best chocolate sauce ever!) or my very low glycemic butterscotch-caramel sauce:

 

Butterscotch-Caramel Sauce Recipe

Stir until smooth in a small bowl using a small silicon spatula. Feel free to double or triple recipe:

1 tablespoon non-GMO glycerin (the zero-glycemic option) or any wholesome liquid sweetener of choice

1/2 teaspoon ghee or warm coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1 pinch KAL stevia extract powder, to taste
