My Las Vegas Jackpot Moment: Homemade Ice Cream

I hit the big one in Vegas, baby!!

I found a place that makes homemade ice cream while you wait. I'm not into gambling, so for me, indulging in a bowl of made-from-scratch mango ice cream while strolling down the Las Vegas strip was like hitting the jackpot.

During my random wanderings I stopped by a little shop in the Harrah's Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. If you're ever in the area, look up IcePan.

They custom make a variety of fruit-flavored ice creams. They also create classic chocolate and vanilla treats and whip up more exotic flavors including green tea and red bean.

I watched the ice cream artist chop a fresh mango, puree the fruit and combine it with soy milk. That's it! Two ingredients!

Then he poured the smoothie-type liquid onto a freezing cold platform and worked his magic. He used two paddles to scoop, fold and mash the mixture until it turned into ice cream.

So, how was it? Creamy. Rich. Decadent.

It was simply amazing. If I'm ever in Las Vegas again, I'll be back for round two, three and four of this healthy whole foods dessert!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!
