Lauren wrote: So Delicious Dairy Free make some ice creams that are sugar free, dairy free, and gluten free that is made from coconut milk. There a few different flavors (mint, butter pecan, chocolate, vanilla, toasted almond, fudge bars and vanilla bars.)Even though it is sugar free there is still 1 gram of sugar in a serving ( I am guessing this occurs naturally in the products). The thing I am most worried about is the vanilla extract and chicory extract found it because I am sure there is some alcohol in it (it does not say alcohol free). I am not saying this product is prefect for the diet. However if you have a birthday and really feel like you need something this would be a better choice because the lack of sugar and milk. I am a ice cream eater. It is one of the thing I miss most about the diet. I will continue looking for a ice cream that will be even better. I am not saying this is good for everyday consumptions but I know many people may want to cheat on their birthday and for me ice cream is my achilles heel.
Lots of love,
Just wanted to let you know I make my own ice cream. I use a can of coconut milk, leaving most of the liquid out. Then I add a pinch of salt, vanilla bean and xylitol to taste. You can freeze it like this stiring every 30 minutes or you can do what I did and purchase a single serving soft serve ice cream make. Works great!
