Strawberry & White Chocolate “Ice Cream”

IMG_0471

My husband and I enjoy ice cream and sweets, and they were one of the hardest things to give up on the Plant Paradox Eating Plan. However, by not eating sugar or any of the artificial sweeteners, our cravings for sweets have disappeared. That being said, we still enjoy a nice cool treat occasionally. So here is the Strawberry & White Chocolate “Ice Cream” that I adapted from Dr. Gundry’s “Mint Chocolate Chip-Avocado “Ice Cream”:

Delicious Avocado Ice Cream Recipe (from The Plant … – Gundry MD

  • 2 droppers SweetLeaf Stevia

  • If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a metal loaf pan or a glass or ceramic casserole pan and place in the freezer. Stir every 1/2 hour to break up the ice crystals and keep stirring until desired consistency is reached.

Sugar-Free White Chocolate

Sugar-Free White Chocolate

I have a plan to create a white chocolate, strawberry ice cream. So I needed to find or create a sugar-free white chocolate candy bar. I did a search and found Maya Krampf’s “How To Make Sugar-Free White Chocolate” at https://www.wholesomeyum.com/?s=how+to+make+sugar-free+white+chocolate. I tweaked it a little bit and this is how it turned out.

Ingredients for Sugar-Free White Chocolate

  • 4 oz. Cocoa Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1 large egg yolk (beaten with a fork)
  • 1/4 cup Powdered erythritol (Swerve Confection)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Milk Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/16 tsp. Sea Salt

Instructions for Sugar-Free White Chocolate

  1. To prevent overheating the Cocoa Butter, break the discs into small pieces.
  2. Place the cocoa butter, coconut oil and beaten egg yolk into the top piece of a double boiler. Add water to the bottom part of the pan and put it on low heat. Place the top part on the double boiler and slowly melt the cocoa butter. Do not allow it to get too hot. Remove from the heat when it is all melted.
  3. Add the sweetener and stir until it is completely dissolved. Stir in the coconut milk powder, the vanilla and the sea salt.
  4. Pour into a parchment paper lined pan. Then refrigerate until hardened.
