I’m going to share with you one of my top secret, all-time favorite, late-night companion, go-to, I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-ice-cream recipes.
Don’t tell anyone. . .okay, tell everyone, because this one is just worth sharing.
If you’ve struggled with candida you know one of the best ways to get it under control is with diet. You are what you eat – and if you eat foods that candida loves, you’ll become a big mushy mass of candida fungus with legs.
Just being honest, here.
Eating a diet that helps eliminate candida is tough. It’s restrictive compared to the standard American diet, and it takes self-control to stick to it for the amount of time it takes to rid your body of your little fungus friend.
However, because a candida diet harbors on being the-healthiest-diet-in-the-world, is full of nutrient-rich, good for you food, helps you shed weight like melting butter on a hot day, and is one of the best ways to cure yourself of candida’s numerous health symptoms, I’d have to say it’s worth it.
But try telling yourself that when your sitting next to someone while they’re eating a bowl of triple scoop ice cream drizzled in toppings. It’s pretty easy for candida to roar it’s ugly head and start playing with your mind.
Just one bite. C’mon. You know you’ll love it. What’s one itsy, bitsy little bite going to hurt?
And that, my friends is when you whip out your bowl of candida diet, sugar-free ice cream and laugh out loud. If you can laugh when your mouth is full. . .
If I could, I would call this post: Lose Weight with Candida-Diet Friendly, Low-Carb, Sugar-Free, Healthy-Fat, Protein-Filled, Delicious, Filling, Good For You Vanilla Ice Cream.
But you know. . .
This is a large recipe – because we eat this a lot. You can easily cut the ingredients in half if you want to make less (or if your crazy).
Candida Diet, Sugar-Free Ice Cream (gluten-free, nut-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, anti-candida, low-carb)
recipe altered from Healing Naturally by Bee
1 1/2 c. coconut oil
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 c.) unsalted butter
1 T. vanilla extract
stevia to taste
1. Place eggs and vanilla in blender.
2. Melt the coconut oil and butter together and add to the blender. (Heat until just melted and let cool a bit or you’ll cook the eggs.)
3. Blend it all up until it’s a nice, deep yellow.
4. Add stevia to taste. There are so many brands and strengths of stevia that it’s really your preference. I sprinkle in about half of a teaspoon, blend it up, and taste test it. If it needs more, I sprinkle in some more. Add just a bit at a time; too much stevia will make it bitter.
5. Pour the ice cream into a 9×13 glass pan. Snap the lid down and place the pan on a flat surface in your freezer. Let freeze approximately 6 hours or more.
6. When your ice cream is frozen, take a knife and score the top into the size of pieces you want. This ice cream freezes very solid.
7. When you’re ready to taste this delicious concoction, take it out and let it sit on the counter for about 10-15 minutes. Once it has softened up you can take a spatula and cut along the lines you scored across the top. This will make it easier to remove pieces the next time you have that craving. (However, you’ll still want to let it sit out awhile each time you take it out of the freezer).
8. Now you can add any candida-diet friendly toppings you’d like. My favorite is a bit of cacao and a drop or two of mint extract.
9. Stir it up a bit with your spoon and prepare yourself for a rich, creamy treat that will knock your socks off.
P.S. Now wait, you say. How can you lose weight with a treat that’s full of fat? Read about healthy weight loss on our Weight Loss page.
