Last week Mike Dolce was on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast dropping knowledge like he always does. If you’re into hearing about what to eat and how to lose weight, then maybe it wasn’t that informative of a podcast appearance. The majority of the time was spent talking about mixed martial arts fighters and what they go through with the weight cutting process leading up to fight day. There was one interesting nugget mentioned in passing during the podcast that piqued my interest, and that was for Mike Dolce’s ice cream recipe.
First off, the Dolce Diet ice cream recipe is not actually ice cream. If you’re familiar with Mike Dolce, that shouldn’t surprise you. Ice cream isn’t exactly an earth grown nutrient, nor are (m)any of the ice creams on store shelves made with such ingredients. Still, the idea of a healthy Dolce-approved version of ice cream lead me to do a bit of digging.
I looked on his Dolce Diet website for the recipe but couldn’t find it. Searching for “dolce ice cream” brought up a lot of results for ice cream shops and brands that use the name “Dolce.” After a few minutes, I finally uncovered in a brief Instagram post what the mysterious Dolce ice cream was all about. And now, I share it with you:
The Dolce Diet Ice Cream Recipe
- plain organic greek yogurt
- frozen black cherries
- small handful of chia seeds
Add two cups of plain organic greek yogurt and two cups of frozen black cherries into your blender. Blend for 10 seconds. Scoop out with an ice cream scooper. Sprinkle chia seeds over the top. Enjoy!
Easy enough, right? And obviously you can tweak this to fit your tastes. I’d opt for blueberries over the black cherries and I suppose I can handle the chia seeds over the top, although I’d greatly prefer some sprinkles or gummi bears. Gummi bears count as earth grown nutrients, right?
