Mocha Low Carb Coconut Milk Ice Cream, A Dairy Free Treat!

low carb mocha coconut milk ice cream

In South Florida we are already experiencing 90 degree days. Understand it’s not even officially Spring yet! I know that may come across like a complaint but it’s more of an observation. I love living in Miami, it really is a melting pot of cultures. However, the humidity factor can be a challenge as the temperature continues to rise. I guess I should be grateful that it’s great for my skin. This still does not mean that living in sweltering heat isn’t a challenge. We had like two days of winter! Okay maybe it was more like five but you get the picture.

So how do we cope? By indulging in delicious low carb ice cream treats! Time to give our ovens a much needed break. Don’t get me wrong I still bake low carb goodies during the warmer months but an easy treat that requires no heat makes perfect sense.

So here it is our fist low carb frozen treat of the season.

Ingredients:

4 cans of full fat coconut milk chilled overnight

1 cup of swerve or other sugar substitute equivalent

6 tablespoons of dark un-sweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons of finely ground coffee (you can substitute with instant coffee)

½ tsp. of sea salt

Directions:

In a mixer blend up all the ingredients until fully combined. Pour into two loaf pans or other similar container.

For a creamier version place in the freezer and every two hours stir the ice cream with a fork. This makes ½ gallon of ice cream. Enjoy in good health!

    I wish my tummy could handle Swerve, xylitol, etc. I ate well like this using the sugar subs…lost weight…but ended up having to have an endoscope on my stomach because it was always hurting. I stopped the substitutes…tummy better. I ended up putting on 10 lbs, which is ok. But I love to bake, so not sure what to do for a sweetener. Tx for your posts!

      Hi Donna, our doctors have personally told us that Splenda although frowned upon by many will never cause the harm that obesity brings. Stevia is a healthier choice but many people cannot handle the aftertaste. We use Splenda from time to time and have never had any issues. In the end it’s a personal decision and one you may want to ask your doctor. What we tell people is to stay away from Equal. Best wishes.

    I’ll have to try this. (I love my ice cream on Friday night but this is a healthier alternative.) I wanted to let you know that I got an invitation to speak at a local church next month to share my story and inspire others. I’ll try to get some video footage to you. I’ve also put blogging on hold for a little while to focus on promoting my book and I’ve launched a new podcast.
