Katie’s Healthy “Haagen Dazs” Ice Cream

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”

Burn more calories if you scoop it into a bowl instead of eating from the carton.

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.

Katie’s Healthy “Haagen Dazs” Ice Cream Recipe

  • 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.

*Judy-tip: Zap it in the microwave for 10 seconds to make it creamy.

  1. My human says “healthy chocolate ice cream is something called an oxymoron.” She also said have everything you want in moderation (yeah, I don’t believe in that at all.) As for someone being mad at you? Hmm. surprising. Did you ask her permission? Some people are like that, they don’t have an open heart and spirit like you.
