Tahini Honey Ice Cream, Dairy Free, SCD Low FodMap

Ahhh, ice cream! It is so creamy and delicious. It a delectable treat! The problem is when it doesn’t love us back. This Tahini Honey Ice Cream is gut friendly, dairy free, with healthful ingredients like raw honey (at a low fodmap serving size of under two tablespoons per serving.) It is lovely and sweet with just one tablespoon of clover honey per 1/2 cup. Egg yolks in ice cream give it the classic custardy, creamy mouthfeel, and the tahini and honey go together so well with a little vanilla extract and creamy, dairy free coconut milk.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, no worries, this is churn free!

I love a good tahini. I can eat it right from the spoon. My current favorite is Soom roasted tahini which I get at Thrive Market and has no sugar added.

Tahini Honey Ice Cream

Ingredients:

1 Can of Full Fat Coconut Milk with no additives 1 1/2 Cups

1/4 Cup of Good Tasting Tahini with no sugar added

1/4 Cup of Clover Honey (clover honey is low fodmap up to a 2 tablespoon serving. See Dr. Siebecker’s SCD, Low FodMap SIBO Specific Food Guide on my homepage. It’s downloadable!)

2 Egg Yolks

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

a pinch of salt

Directions: Whisk all the ingredients together with a wire whisk in a medium saucepan.

Cook over medium high heat whisking constantly until the mixture reaches 160 degrees F. Do not boil. It should coat the back of a spoon. This takes about 5 minutes or so.

Pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan, and place it in the freezer. Stir the ice cream every hour for 4 hours, or until its a nice ice cream consistency. At this point you can eat it, or put it into a freezer safe container for later. When serving from the freezer, let it set on the counter for about ten minutes to soften.

It is a delicious and healthy treat. I hope this helps you enjoy ice cream again in a healthful way. Delicious whether you are following a SCD Low FodMap diet or just looking to eat healthier treats!

*The low fodmap serving size is 1/2 cup.

*Tahini is SCD legal after 3 months of no symptoms. This is also delicious with Almond Butter.

Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Ice Cream.jpg

I have this slight obsession with toasted coconut ice cream with chocolate bits. There is this extraordinary ice cream shop where we vacation every Summer, and they have the Best ice cream……..Toasted Coconut is my favorite. It’s been around for years, but since becoming dairy intolerant, I haven’t chosen to partake. It is their #2 best seller. Of course, the ice cream has dairy (It is gluten free) which totally does not agree with me, and I don’t want to spend my vacay time with a belly ache and bloating because I couldn’t resist.

So, I was thinking “Dang Girl, aren’t you a food blogger and recipe developer?” Me to self, “Well, Ya”…… So, I made my own, getting as close as possible. This is a recipe to replicate my favorite Vacay Ice Cream without the refined sugar and dairy. It’s delicious, it’s got some crunch, and a whole lot of yum factor!

Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate Dairy Free Ice Cream Gluten Free

Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

1 Cup of Dang Coconut Chips (this kind, already toasted for you)

1/3 Cup of Dark Chocolate Chips (I used Enjoy Life)

1 Can of Full Fat Coconut Milk, chilled

1/4 Cup of Pure Honey (local tastes best)

1/4 Cup of Coconut Butter, Softened

1 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

1 Tablespoon of White Rum (I used Bacardi it’s Gluten Free)

1 Tablespoon of Grass Fed Collagen

1/8 teaspoon of Sea Salt

Directions:

In a mini food processor, process your coconut chips until they are fine in texture. Lay them out in a single layer on a parchment lined sheet. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips for 30 seconds at a time until smooth and creamy. Stir them with a fork in between 30 second increments until they are completely melted and creamy. Drizzle the melted chips over the coconut. Toss the coconut and chocolate with forks on the sheet to coat about 75 percent of the coconut. Let sit for a couple hours at room temperature until it has solidifying and can be broken into bits with your hands.

Once your coconut chocolate bits are ready, you can make your ice cream.

In a blender, blend the coconut milk, honey, coconut butter, vanilla, collagen, salt and white rum. The rum makes the ice cream softer. Add it to an electric ice cream maker and churn. At the end of churning time, add the coconut chocolate bits. This will be the last few minutes. Let the machine incorporate the chocolate coconut bits.

Serve!
