Candida-diet Sugar-free Ice Cream
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. 🙂
A healthy candida-diet
This diet harbors on being the-healthiest-in-the-world, is full of nutrient-rich 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.
Because let’s face it: you are what you eat. If you eat the foods candida loves, you’ll become a big mushy mass of candida fungus with legs.
Ice cream cravings
‘Okay, sure’, you say. But what happens when you’re sitting next to someone who’s eating a bowl of triple scoop ice cream drizzled in toppings, and those old food cravings start rearing their ugly heads?
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. . .
Good for you ice cream
If I could, I would call this: Candida-Diet Friendly, Sugar-Free, Healthy-Fat, Protein-Filled, Delicious, Filling, Good-For-You Ice Cream.
But you know. . .
This is a large recipe (altered from a recipe found at Healing Naturally by Bee) – because we eat it a lot. 🙂 You can easily cut the ingredients in half if you want to make less (or if you’re crazy ;)).
Alternately, if you have an ice cream maker and want a cookbook with over 20 candida-diet ice creams and treats, check out Candida on Ice.
I'm going to share with you one of my top secret, all-time favorite, late-night companions: Candida-Diet Sugar-Free Ice Cream.
- 12 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 pinch stevia (to taste)
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder (optional for layered ice cream)
Place eggs and vanilla in a blender.
Gently melt the coconut oil and butter and add to the blender. (Heat until just melted and let cool a bit or you'll cook the eggs.)
Blend it all up until it’s a nice, deep yellow.
Add stevia to taste. (Add just a bit - maybe 1/4 teaspoon - at a time. Blend and taste test before adding more. Too much stevia will taste bitter.)
Split the ice cream liquid into three separate bowls. Add the cacao powder to one of the bowls and mix with a fork. Now you have two vanilla bowls and one chocolate.
Pour one of the vanilla bowls into a tall, flat-bottomed bowl. Cover with a lid and place in the freezer until frozen (about 2 hours).
Cover vanilla bowl #2 and the chocolate bowl with lids and place them in the fridge. After the ice cream in the freezer has frozen, pour the bowl of chocolate over top and freeze again. Repeat with the last bowl of vanilla.
When the ice cream is completely frozen, warm the bottom of the bowl under warm water until you can turn it out. Run a knife under warm water to cut it.
Note: Alternately, you don't have to split the ice cream liquid into three parts. You can leave it in the blender and opt out of using the cacao powder to make vanilla-flavored ice cream.
For chocolate ice cream, add 3 Tablespoons cacao powder. This ice cream freezes very solidly so you can also pour it into a 9x13 pan and cut it into squares when you're ready to serve.
