Dairy free, sugar free, vegan, paleo, clean eating, <insert current dietary trend> etc
At the start of the year, I challenged myself and everyone else to eliminate sugar for 7 days. If you haven’t done it, give it a go! I felt so good that I continued it, and now it’s March and I still haven’t had any sugar! Of course, when the weather’s warm or I head to the beach, I do feel like an ice cream would be nice, so finally I came up with something that meets my criteria and is dead simple too.
270mL Coconut Cream
½ cup Apple & Blackcurrant Juice
¼ cup Cocoa Powder
Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir so well combined.
Pour into ice cream maker and make ice cream as per instruction manual.
Done! Could it get any easier??! Well, to make it even easier, I kept my coconut cream in the fridge so it was already cool. This meant the whole ice cream making process only took 10 minutes! Not to mention, 270mL is conveniently the size of the Ayam brand tin. This is the only brand I use as it is one of the few brands that is 100% coconut with no additives, and it has a good texture too.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can blend it up in a bowl, stick it in the freezer until it starts to freeze, then blend again. Do this a couple of times until you get the ice cream texture you like.
You can alter the quantities of juice and cocoa powder to taste. You might also like to use orange juice for a jaffa ice cream, or chuck in a bit of cinnamon or chilli. Just make sure the juice is 100% natural with no additives, otherwise you may as well buy your ice cream from the shops
