    Coconut and Mango Ice Cream

    Post by Jan1 on Mon Jun 29 2015, 13:54


    Well, we are back after a lovely few days away... and with a heatwave predicted for parts of the UK later this week, I thought this recipe idea may come in handy.

    For all those of you who love ice cream, but would rather it be lower in carbohydrates than your usual ice cream, may just want to give this super recipe idea a try. "It has a clean fresh taste,and with no sugar, preservatives or colourings," ... it's a hit ... why not give it a try and see what you think !

    COCONUT AND MANGO ICE CREAM - LOW CARB, DAIRY FREE

    PREP TIME
    10 mins
    COOK TIME
    5 mins
    TOTAL TIME
    15 mins

    A fresh low carb, dairy free ice cream for the summer. The sweetness of the mango and the rich coconut cream makes for a beautiful combination. Perhaps you wouldn't usually have mango's because they are higher in sugars than most fruit, but this is 50/50 with coconut cream so the carb count isn't too high.

    Serves: 4-6

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 mango sliced and frozen
    1 400ml can coconut cream frozen into ice cube trays

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Take the frozen mango and coconut cream out of the freezer, and allow to slightly defrost for 10 minutes.
    I use my Yonanas machine to churn them alternately through the chute and turn it into frozen 'ice cream'.
    If you don't have a Yonanas machine, you can place the frozen mango and frozen coconut cream into a food processor with the blade attachment and pulse unit it resembles ice cream consistency.
    Serve immediately.

    NOTES:
    A higher carb dessert, but dairy free, no added sugar, unprocessed and packed with vitamins A and C.
    Sprinkle with dark chocolate chips and coconut flakes.

    NUTRITION INFORMATION:
    Serving size: 1 serve Fat: 14.4g Carbohydrates: 13.4g Sugar: 11.5g

    This is a very nice recipe idea from Libby, some words and pictures are hers. As she points out it has a slightly higher carb content than some desserts, please bear this in mind and always test your blood sugar readings.
