Do you like Piña Colada...Ice Cream?

I'm always searching for healthy ways to make my favorite desserts, that is, without too much sugar and too much flour. I love ice-cream but one of the major ingredients in ice cream, to make it creamy and sweet, is condensed milk which contains a lot of sugar, about 54g per serving (100g). So I searched online for "healthy coconut ice cream" and I found the perfect recipe here: https://getinspiredeveryday.com/food/homemade-coconut-ice-cream/


Here are the ingredients:

2 cans (403 ml each or 13.66 oz each) coconut milk, refrigerated

1/2 – 1 cup Grade A amber maple syrup, start with a small amount and keep adding to your taste- You can also use honey or agave as substitutes like I did.

pinch of sea salt

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract


I decided to make the coconut milk from scratch to give it that rich amazing coconut taste. I had to get my hubby to break open the coconut from the husk to get to the actual nut inside. We then removed the jelly from the nut and blended it with some water. We used a cloth to strain out all the delicious coconut milk goodness; we got about 2 cups.


Since we don't have an ice cream machine, I froze the coconut milk into ice-cubes. I also froze some fresh pineapple chunks. When they were all frozen, I added to a Nutri Bullet blender with the rest of the ingredients and after about 2-3 minutes, voila - creamy Coconut Pineapple Ice cream or Piña Colada Ice Cream. The texture is like soft serve when you are done. You can use any toppings you like but we used bananas and some berry compote we made for pancakes that morning, which is basically mixed berries and agave. When you take out the freezer, leave it to thaw for a few minutes before serving.





Hope you try out this recipe soon and enjoy it as much as I did. From now on, you don't ever have to feel guilty when you're eating a big tub of ice-cream again. You're welcome ;).
