I Went On A Kanye Themed Ice Cream Diet And Lived To Tell The Tale


If you follow a lot of foodies on social media, there's a good chance your Insta feed was flooded with all sorts of insane treats inspired by the almighty Kanye West.

Last week was Kanye's 39th birthday, so First We Feast teamed up with Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream in New York City to celebrate the special occasion by whipping up a bunch of tasty Ye approved treats and bringing back SZN 2 of #KanyeIceCreamWeek.

Now, if there's one thing I love just as much as Kanye loves Kanye, it's stuffing my face with ice cream.

So when First We Feast asked me to go on another one of my crazy eating endeavors and do a 48-hour Kanye Ice Cream Diet, it was a no-brainer.

I mean, let's be real, binge-eating ice cream sounds a lot more fun than being on a diet that involves choking down shitty kale smoothies three times a day.

That's right. In honor of Yeezy's birthday, I ate nothing besides Kanye-themed confections for two whole days and I have to say, this diet might be even better than the six-day taco cleanse and the nacho diet combined.

Over the course of this epic eating experiment, I tried all sorts of heavenly hip-hop themed treats that ranged from bougie banana splits and ice cream sandwiches to Henny-infused milkshakes that were certainly worthy of a mic drop.

By the end of day two, I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed every damn second of this decadent diet and luckily my waistline didn't seem to suffer any ice-cream induced consequences.

That being said, I'm not sure if there are any real health benefits associated with eating ice cream for two days straight, but I can confirm that this glorious Kanye Ice Cream Diet will make you happy AF, not to mention high as a kite on sugar (or slightly drunk on Henny).

Unfortunately, #KanyeICeCreamWeek came to a close yesterday, so if you want to get in on the diet you'll have to wait until Szn 3 makes its return next year.

But, hey, at least you can tide yourself over by living vicariously through my ice cream adventures until then.

Kanye and ice cream are two things that occupy a truly special place in my heart.

So, obviously, I was pretty excited when First We Feast asked me to go on a 48-hour #KanyeIceCreamWeek Diet in honor of Ye's bday.

That's right. For two days straight, I made my way down to Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream in NYC and managed to stuff my face with almost every Kanye-inspired snack on the menu.

I kicked off my ice cream challenge by eating a Panda ice cream cone as an afternoon snack.

It's not hard to see that this adorable coconut-flavored cone was almost too cute to eat.

Later, I demolished a trio of Kanye-inspired scoops that included flavors like Paparazzi Pineapple, Positive Vibes Pistachio and Father Stracciatella My Hands Pt. 1.

Next up was a bougie Bound 2 Banana Split Sundae, which featured agave ice cream, banana whipped cream and banana fudge...

...plus some edible gold for good measure.

The Beautiful Morning Milkshake was an obvious choice for breakfast the next day...

Because it transformed coffee and cornflakes...

...into a tasty AF treat.

Then I crossed the You Left The Fridge Open ice cream sandwich off my list...

...as well as an I Am A God ice cream croissant sandwich that was too lit for words.

I managed to polish off another Panda cone and jam out to some Yeezy tunes before calling it quits for the day.

The next morning I turned up at 9 am with Henny-infused Young Metro Milkshake...

Before finally celebrating the end of my Yeezy diet with a victory banana split.

Despite being hyped up on sugar and hip-hop for 48 hours straight, I felt pretty damn great and would definitely say that my Kanye Ice Cream Diet was a success. Thanks, Ye.
