When it is hot out it is always nice to let the kids cool off with some ice cream, but who wants to give them all that sugar, artificial flavour and thickeners found in conventional products. Here is a nice, easy and healthy fat version of a summer treat.
2 cans coconut milk
3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
This is a great treat for kids.
Freeze the two cans for 24 hours. Open the cans and allow any remaining liquid to drain out. Keep the creamy part and add to a stainless steel bowl. Add the maple syrup and vanilla. Whip on high for at least 10 minutes to thicken. Serve with berries. If you have any left over, freeze in glass in the freezer.
If you like this dessert, feel free to play around with the flavors by adding lemon juice, nuts, cocoa powder or cinnamon.
