When we met Carrie Gabriel of Steps2Nutrition recently in L.A., we instantly fell in love with the fact that she was a dietitian with a sweet tooth. How often do you hear those words together? We admire her realistic approach to health, recognizing that people aren’t going to stop eating sweets or celebrating holidays. To Carrie, what is more important is finding balance and seeking out the highest-quality, least-processed foods that deliver real food nutrition. We are honored that Carrie recognizes that ProYo can be that go-to choice for anyone that’s looking to get more from their ice cream.

Even more exciting, Carrie has combined ProYo Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with a seasonal fruit to create a go-to and protein-packed dessert – Roasted Fuyu Persimmons with ProYo Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Check out the recipe below and get ready to satisfy your sweet tooth in a guilt-free way!
