Last night I ate a carton (only 16 oz.) of my new favorite HEALTHY chocolate ice cream from Trader Joe’s. Ok, truth in advertising – “non-dairy frozen dessert”
Sooooooooo creamy* and sooooooooo healthy cuz it’s made with coconut milk – everyone knows how healthy coconut milk is. AND there are only 180 calories per serving and ONLY 4 servings in the 16 oz. I figure I actually consumed even lower calories because I ate it for dinner (or instead of dinner, depending on your point of view).
However, there are 16 grams of sugar per serving. So I went to my favorite blog Chocolate Covered Katie to see if she had a recipe that was even more delicious with less sugar. This is what Katie made.
- 1 cup raw cashew or macadamia halves (120g)
- 1 1/3 cups milk of choice (320g)
- 3 tbsp xylitol or sugar of choice (30g)
- 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
- 1/16 tsp pure stevia, or 2 extra tbsp sugar of choice
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
You will have to click on her link to see HOW she made it cuz I got a rather scathing rebuke from another recipe blog (not my Katie) when I posted her entire recipe. Even though I put up her link she didn’t like that.
When you make it let me know if it’s as delicious as Katie says. In the meantime I have 2 more cartons of Trader Joe’s Chocolate Coconut frozen dessert in the freezer for dinner tonight and breakfast in the morning.
