My Scientific Question:How do we make ice cream healthier?
What I did:We first looked at the nutririon facts of the original vanilla ice cream and tried to determain what was unhealthy about the ice cream like the calories,fat,suger,and among other things.One thing that we wanted to really change was the amount of sugar that was in the ice cream.It was 2/3 cups of sugar.So,we chose the flavors strawberry,coffee,and coconut.We chose these flavors because all are natural and they all act as a natural sugar and the coffee has no sugar at all.Than we made it and tried the different flavors to see how it tastes.We had to recalculate the nutrition facts to tell us how much healthier we made the ice cream.
What I found: I found out that by decreasing the amount of sugar for the 3 typs of ice creams we made the ice cream a lot healthier. I found that sugar has a lot of calories. By adding more natural flavors you can make the ice cream healthier, but still taste good.
