Fermented Red Bean Ice Cream
Ice cream or popsicles with a hidden source of digestion support ....
At the beginning of every Future Doctors of America course, the students get to provide input on our menu when we cook together during week 8. And some of the requests have been a challenge. The first group of students to go thru Future Docs II: The Digestive System & Diabetes Prevention were no exception!
One of their requests was "anything with red beans". What creative license! Our menu theme for this cooking class was "fermented foods" so we added some extra coconut kefir for a tangy bit of beneficial bacteria.
It just might be a new favorite summer treat!
