Local gym and wellness center Fitness Revolution Roswell is holding a free public workshop Aug. 22 at 7:15 p.m. to demonstrate how to make ice cream in a healthy manner.

Andre and Deidre Coman, owners of the facility, will be producing the ice cream on site and instructing attendees on how to make their own healthy alternatives to their favorite ice cream.

The Comans believe that getting people to eat healthfully must start slowly. “People think that living a healthy lifestyle means getting rid of anything sweet or delicious. That’s not true. By substituting the bad fats in ice cream with good fats from coconut and almond, we are taking a big step in the right direction,” Coman said in a statement.

The ice cream made on site at the demonstration is protein-based, not cream-based, leading to a lower-calorie treat that can actually help build muscle. Unlike most ice creams in the supermarkets, what the facility is producing does not have any artificial ingredients, preservatives, or even any added sugar and it still tastes great.

“People are surprised by how good it tastes. It’s different from ice cream, certainly, but that’s the point — we can slowly wean ourselves off super-sweet, high-calorie indulgences and replace them with something much healthier,” Coman said in a statement.

Americans on average consume approximately six gallons of ice cream annually. Its consumption is discouraged by the USDA as excess sugar and calorie intake leads to obesity and diabetes.

However, the brand that is being cooked up at the facility is good for the waistline – and the muscles.

“Really the kicker is that the ice cream is made with protein, so that your metabolism and muscles are fueled optimally. We encourage our members to eat or drink protein immediately after exercising to help them build muscle and burn fat,” Coman said in a statement.

As if free fitness ice cream were not enough, the facilitywill be raffling away a new ice cream maker, Prograde products, and a free month of training for anyone new to the facility. All who come are eligible for the raffle.

Fitness Revolution Roswell is located at 1575 Old Alabama Road, Ste 105, Roswell.
