Ice Cream Cleanse?

Ok, this is the sweetest cleanse all of us at The Green Yogi have ever heard about… Ice Cream and Yoga!

I love both yoga and ice cream, but this sounds too good to be true. Ice cream shop owner Kippy Miller of Kippy’s! in Venice, CA teamed up with a local yoga teacher to create an ice cream cleanse. According to Kippy by eating coconut based ice cream and practicing yoga for 4 days “your body, in the course of the cleanse will release heavy metals, plastics and other toxins, and the raw saturated fat will function as a carrier to rid your body of them for good.”

Like other cleanses this one isn’t cheap. 3 meals a day of the coconut plant based ice cream will run you $240 for the 4 days, which is $20 an ice cream! And the nutrition is a bit suspect too, per day you’d be consuming 1200 calories, 70 grams of fat, and 120 grams of sugar. I think if it were me, I’d rather take my $20 a meal and have a beautiful green salad with a lean protein and fruit for something sweet.

While participating in the cleanse yogis are provided a free week of Kundalini classes at the nearby Ra Ma Institute.

We shall see if this cleanse will just be a blip on the cleanse radar or if it’s here to stay, what do you think?

Be Inspired,

Kelly
