Pimp your ice cream and don’t look back

Ice creams are for the summer ... or not? That creamy invention that was born as a combination of dairy, eggs and an extra added flavor in the form of vanilla, chocolate or fruit -among many other things-, shakes while the whole is frozen, can give us a lot of play if we accompany it with other preparations or garnish it with other interesting ingredients. Here are several ideas to raise a simple ice cream to another level, which with them can do much more than put a couple of solitary balls in a bowl. No problem. As an accompaniment to other sweets Using ice cream to accompany a cake is something that we can import from the American continent; Americans are very fond of putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream, among other flavors, on top of succulent tartcakes that are still warm so tha...

Scientists Rediscover a Rare, Wild Species That Could Save Coffee From Climate Change

As the climate crisis causes havoc in temperature and rainfall patterns around the world, one of the many crops under threat is humanity's precious coffee. Now scientists have identified a coffee-making plant that could be more robust against the rigors of the shifting seasons.  The plant is stenophylla coffee or Coffea stenophylla, a wild and relatively rare species found in Upper West Africa. Compared with the more commonly used coffee plants, it's better equipped to handle climate shifts.What's more, it has a similar flavor to high-quality Arabica coffee made from the arabica (C. arabica) plant, so it should keep connoisseurs of the hot beverage satisfied as well. Arabica - currently dominating 75 percent of the market - is one of the varieties particularly under threat from climate ch...

Does Coffee Really Stunt Children's Growth? Here's The Science

One reason coffee isn't usually given to kids may be the widely held belief that the caffeinated beverage can stunt children's growth. But is there any truth to this idea?The answer is a resounding "no": There's no evidence that coffee or caffeine stunts childhood growth and development.   Instead, a person's height is largely governed by other factors. For example, hundreds of genes so far identified are thought to be responsible for approximately 16 percent of a person's adult height.  A child's general health also plays a role. For example, repeated infection during infancy can slow nutritional uptake and bone growth, as shown by a number of different studies.Moreover, whether a child has access to important dietary needs, such as milk, during their early years also influences height, ...

Drinking Coffee Before Exercise Can Do Something Pretty Awesome to Your Body

If you're looking to maximize the amount of fat burned in your next workout, think about having a coffee half an hour before you get started – as a new study suggests it can make a significant difference to fat burning, especially later on in the day.  Researchers found that 3 milligrams of caffeine per kilogram of body weight – about half a single dose of caffeine, commonly held to be about 6 mg/kg – can boost the rate of fat burning during aerobic exercise, based on results gathered from 15 male volunteers.The coffee dose was shown to increase maximal fat oxidation rate (MFO, a measure of how efficiently the body burns off fat) by an average of 10.7 percent in the morning and 29 percent in the afternoon.It adds to what we already know about MFO: that it's lower in the morning than the a...

Even a Little Coffee in Pregnancy May Impact Newborn's Weight

"This reduction in birth weight is within the range we see in reductions of birth weight among women who smoke during pregnancy," Gleason said, noting that smokers tend to deliver babies an average 1.8 to 7 ounces lighter than those of nonsmokers. The findings were published online March 25 in JAMA Network Open. But while these results are concerning, pregnant women shouldn't rush to throw out all their coffee beans, tea bags and diet colas, said Dr. Jill Berkin, an assistant professor of maternal-fetal medicine with the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. The results of this study conflict with prior research, which found no significant link between caffeine and fetal growth, Berkin said. Further, the effects of caffeine on birth size and weight...
