Skinny Scoop Ice Cream
Skinny Scoop Ice cream has launched a first of its kind sugar-free protein ice cream. The heavenly creation unlocks a new way of living by combining the perfect combination of decadence and innocent indulgence.
The dark and desirable design along with the quirky flavour characters, Vanilla Camilla and Afterdark Cacao AKA Donatella, embodies their flare of not following the norm. The tempting treat contains only the highest quality natural ingredients, making the sexy and seductive tub design the only ‘naughty’ thing about this ice cream.
Skinny Scoop ice cream was born when Co-owners and Directors Jarred Plu’g and Gabriella Esposito discovered their common health and fitness interests. “We wanted to combine my expertise from personal training and Gabriella’s baking knowledge of the delectable world of dessert, to create a product that satisfies those late night and everyday cravings, but at the same time keeps you healthy and fit,” says Jarred.
Skinny Scoop ice cream retails at R34,99 for the 175ml tub and R89,99 for the 500ml tubs, and can be found at various retail outlets in and around Cape Town.
As we are enjoying the last summer days, there is still time to bake this delicious and easy Afterdark cacao tart. The best part of this recipe, it is 100% guilt free!
