Sea salt caramel is no kiddie flavor (although more discerning children may love it). In fact, sea salt caramel may be one of the most nuanced and decadent ice cream varieties out there…. Something about the caramel flavor feels richer than other ice creams. Something about the sea salt offers a bite that satisfies beyond taste imagination. It’s where sweet meets depth. And with this recipe, it’s an indulgence you can still revel in—even while keto, thanks to the magic of Swerve.

Pro tip: pour Mark’s cold-brew coffee over a scoop for the ultimate cool taste combo.

Servings: 6 half-cup servings

Time In the Kitchen: 45 minutes

 Chill Time: 8 hours

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup Brown Swerve
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 2 cups heavy cream (room temperature)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (room temperature)
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • 6 large egg yolks (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)

Instructions:

In a medium pot over medium heat, melt 3/4 cup Brown Swerve sugar with 3 tablespoons water, swirling skillet frequently, until Swerve turns mahogany brown in color (it should be almost but not quite black). This should take around 10 minutes.

Add heavy cream, almond milk, 1/8 tsp salt, and simmer until cream mixture is completely smooth and warm. Remove pot from heat. In a separate bowl, whisk yolks. While whisking constantly, slowly pour about a third of the warm cream into the yolks, then whisk the yolk mixture back into the pot with the cream.

Return pot to medium-low heat and gently cook until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 170 degrees on an instant-read thermometer). This should take between 25-30 minutes. You want to avoid cooking ice cream mixture too fast because the egg could curdle.

Cool mixture to room temperature. Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight or for 8 hours.

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into ice cream machine. Churn in ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. Sprinkle flaky sea salt into base during the last 2 minutes of churning. Serve directly from the machine for soft serve, or store in freezer until needed. Enjoy!

Starting over is powerful and winning starts in the mind. Follow Chady Dunmore as she helps you discover what’s holding you back and how to be the best version of you that you can be!

There is a quote that reads, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” Sounds so easy, right? I know it’s hard. Getting started and taking that first step into the unknown can be challenging. Doubts, excuses and negative thoughts can quickly derail us from taking that first step. If that’s how you feel today, I want you to know I understand and I’ve been there. And right now, you are exactly where you are supposed to be. So please, take the first step in investing in a better you.

Starting Over Is a Way of Life

This may shock you, but starting over has actually become a way of life for me. I’m constantly starting over, and therefore I’m constantly evolving. If you’re not starting over, then you’re giving up. That’s how I see it. You see, there seems to be a stigma around starting over. Starting over must mean you’ve “failed,” and therefore you must hang your head down and start all over again. I’m here to tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth. Starting over takes guts! So let’s start over together!

What’s Holding You Back?

The definition of EMANCIPATION: “To free from restraint, control or the power of another especially: to free from bondage.” This is what I want you to experience in this program. You simply can’t move forward if something is holding you back, period! You can’t make the changes you desire if you are trapped in a mind of defeat. Trust me, I know. So what’s holding you back on becoming the best version of yourself? What’s holding you back from taking that first step to change? Is it your mindset? An unhealthy relationship? Self-doubt? Naysayers? Whatever it is, now is the time to level up and allow yourself to have the body and mindset you deserve.

Winning Starts in the Mind

You may see the highlight reels of my life and think winning is a constant, but trust me, it’s not. Again, I am always starting over. Yes, I have experienced amazing moments that mean the world to me, moments to be proud of, one of them is gracing the cover of Oxygen magazine. Truth is, I can’t tell you how many times I have “failed” before victory came to pass. I can’t tell you how many behind-the-scene losses I have encountered before I experienced a dream come to pass. Trust me when I tell you this, it was in my mind when I won my first title, it was in my mind when I first graced the cover of Oxygen. I was a winner within myself long before I was in the physical realm. And that’s what I want you to embrace today, a winning mindset. Before you lift a weight, believe in your success. Before you prep your healthy meals, believe in your outcome. The mind is the first place your victory begins. So, today, take the first step, start again and win! I believe in you!

Chady Dunmore takes you through her 80-pound weight-loss journey, opens up about her struggles and shares how she not only lost the weight but also took her power back (and how you can, too!).

My transformation, although physical, is much more than that. It’s mental, emotional and even spiritual. Yes, I transformed my body, but more important, I transformed my mind, and it took time, a lot of time. Little did I know, among the harsh and trying trials of my life, was the setup for my transformation and the realization of my strength. From being locked in a toxic relationship to feeling trapped in an overweight body, I was unaware that those trials were setting me up for greatness. That greatness would, later on, pour out into the lives of others, allowing them to see their greatness and allowing them to see that there is hope, that they can change and that they are worth it — and so are you.

My Vision Board, My Beginning

Bringing it back 12 years ago, I was 80 pounds overweight, a new mom and ashamed of the way I looked. Not only did I hate the way I looked on the outside, but also I hated how I felt on the inside. I lacked mental and physical power, or should I say I didn’t know I had it at that time. Maybe you can relate. One morning, I glanced in the mirror and was literally disgusted with what I saw. All I could think about was how I didn’t want my daughter to be embarrassed by her mom and how I didn’t even recognize the woman staring back at me. How did I get here? I knew I had to make a change.

I then created a vison board filled with images that inspired me and a picture of my face among magazine-clipped bodyparts that I longed for—abs, glutes, arms, you get it. I added motivational quotes and made sure I read them every single morning. I needed to remind myself each day that I could do this, that I could make the change. So I placed my vision board by my toothbrush in the bathroom where I would see it every single morning. More important, I pictured my daughter going to school and being proud of who her mom was—not just because of how I looked but because of how strong and healthy my whole entire lifestyle and mindset was.

Today Is the Day for You to Rebuild

I then went on to lose 80 pounds and a whole lot of self-doubt. Has everything been perfect? No and it never will be. But you can create the life and body that you want starting now. Starting with each rep, you can rebuild.

So whatever is holding you back at this moment, the time is now to release it and put everything you have into creating a better you. This program is more than just about working out, it’s more than reaching a weight-loss goal, this is about taking your power back, and for some, finding it!
