Did someone say ice-cream without added sugar?
Yes, we did! Its true, and its awesome. Its ice-cream that is sweetened with Xylitol. Hmmm, there is no aftertaste, there is no aspartame, THERE IS guilt free satisfaction. It is simply divine. Creamy, rich and full of flavour and the perfect texture. It just melts on the tongue. Euphoria for your taste buds.
I don’t own and ice-cream machine but I was eager to try it anyway. So I did some research and experimented a bit until I developed a recipe that works wonders. It is actually pretty simple and doesn’t require a machine. I was thrilled with the results and so were my ‘guinea pigs’. And in the chocolate ice-cream I used our No added sugar Dark Belgian chocolate. Pure chocolate, pure satisfaction. With the vanilla I threw in some almonds for a crunch, nutty texture and flavour. It worked well.
For now we will be selling our ice cream at the Ballito Foodies Market on the first Saturday of every month, from 8am-12pm.
