It truly is blissful!

Giving up sugar December 2006 meant giving up ice cream. The only sugar free ice creams out there are made from artificial sweeteners that are harmful to your body like Splenda and NutraSweet (and both those artificial sweeteners stimulate insulin just like sugar does). I can still find pies and cakes sweetened with fruit juice or honey, so I still get to eat those. And there is candy made with maltitol, a sweetener derived from alcohol that does not stimulate insulin production. So I can have candy. But no naturally sweetened ice creams out there. It's been awful going without ice cream.

Until now. While I was in the Bay Area, Jai introduced me to this brand:

All their products are made with coconut milk and sweetened with agave nectar. It's expensive, but worth every penny. Check out the all natural ingredients in one of the flavors:

Ingredients: organic coconut milk, organic agave syrup, organic fair trade cocoa, organic vanilla extract

It doesn't taste sugar free, it tastes just like ice cream. For those of you that can't have dairy or also want to avoid sugar, I highly recommend this brand! Seattle folks can find it at PCC and Whole Foods.
