Cone to Cream: How to make low calorie vegan Ice Cream

While the last year slowed down many commercial practices, it gave many of us the time to ideate strategies to adapt to the new normal, work on setting up new food businesses and tap into our creative reserves. With the easing of restrictions worldwide, the food industry is picking up pace and now is a good time to unleash all that’s been going on behind the scenes in our kitchens, and finally getting down to winning over new and existing customers. And the ongoing National Ice Cream Month is ideal occasion to make it a sweet new beginning.

  

The instant mood enhancer and solution to midnight cravings, the faithful ice cream has been there for us all along. But we know that indulgence comes with a lingering sense of guilt and at the cost of our wellbeing. This is why we’ve prepared the perfect ice cream recipe that’s sugar-free, lactose-friendly and vegan.

Our recipe uses the goodness of coconut meat and coconut nectar to make healthy ice creams and help pastry chefs and home cooks create a practical dessert.

High in good fats and fibre, low in carbs and sugar – coconut meat is said to aid weight loss and stabilise blood sugar. Coconut nectar, on the other hand, is one of the most sought-after natural sweeteners with a relatively lower glycemic index as compared to its counterparts.

 From the cream to the cone, here’s our answer to all ice cream-makers looking to boost their business and add to their list of ice cream recipes that work:

 

Vegan Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream

What you need 

 

Step by step

  1. Start by simply opening one packet of hand-scooped Copra Coconut Meat (It is much easier than cracking open a mature coconut, removing the water and scooping out the coconut meat.)
  2. Blend the cashews and Copra's coconut meat at high speed, adding a little amount of Copra coconut water to smoothen it.
  3. Once you have a creamy mixture, add in the rest of the ingredients except for the cacao. Blend it all again.
  4. Pour half of the mixture into a glass bowl.
  5. Now, add the cacao to the remaining mixture and blend.
  6. Pour the chocolate ice creams into another glass bowl.
  7. Cover your chocolate and coconut ice cream bowls and let is set in the freezer.
  8. Stir the ice cream once every hour so that it does not freeze into a solid block.
  9. Your ice cream will be ready within 6 to 8 hours.
