At Home Coconut Ice Cream
Ingredients
2 cans (13.5 ounce) full fat coconut milk ( I used only 1 can!)
½ cup raw sugar or honey (Try 1/4 cup xylitol or monk fruit sweetener and taste)
1 vanilla bean ( I only had vanilla extract is okay!)
I also added 1 tbsp of potato vodka (other vodka is made from grains, so if you can tolerate grains go ahead!)

Instructions
Pour the coconut milk and sugar into a medium bowl.
With a sharp knife, split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into milk. Add the vanilla pod also.
Stir well to dissolve the sweetener.
Refrigerate the mixture for 3 hours to overnight to let the flavours develop.
Remove the vanilla pod form the mix or if using vanilla extract no need!
Whisk the mixture to evenly distribute the vanilla, and to add some air to the mixture.
Pour into a large loaf pan and place into the freezer, I covered it with a wax rubber and added a rubber band to hold it on.
After about an hour, stir the mixture.
Return it to the freezer until frozen solid.
AND EAT!
Using an ice cream scoop is the best for this.

    I always thought that maple syrup and honey were ‘better’ for you than white sugar because they were a monosaccharide not a polysaccharide. I have often tried to substitute these 2 liquids (when I could) instead of white sugar thinking they were the lesser of 2 evils.
    However in some of your literature you say these products are no different than white sugar – indicating at one point that maple syrup is highly processed because it is boiled for hours. Then in the recipes above fudgsicles/ice cream alternatives you interchange these 2 products with stevia as a sweetener. Could you clarify all of this for me?
    Thanks so much.

    Maple syrup and honey can still raise blood sugar but have some more nutrients than white sugar but many people tolerate it a bit better. If someone has unbalanced blood sugar any of the more earth based sweeteners like maple syrup can affect them sadly.
    It depends on the individual, so if someone is struggling with sugar cravings slowly working to reduce all sweetener sand trying something like monk fruit or stevia will help them with the intense cravings. Eating a lot of whole food on those days will also help if they eat something sugary as it’s not the only food they eat!
    I hope that clarifies things for you!
