Anyone tried this new line from so delicious? ingredients look pretty legit. How is the taste?
i made a reDONKulus coconut ice cream with lime zest. amazing. i sort of like that its a pain to make because its a bit of a deterrent to eating it every day. its dangerous that there is paleo ice cream so available! hopefully not anywhere near me, or i will balloon to 400 pounds in no time. i also prefer to cheat with the real stuff. this is a bit too easy to justify eating more frequently than one probably should.
Even though it does include the holy coconut (all bow down- Yum!) and there's no dairy, some of the other ingredients seem a bit more dodgy to me.
I've tried the brand, hoping for a reasonably paleo-approved treat, but ended up having a bad reaction to the Guar Gum in it. More details here: http://paleohacks.com/questions/4077/do-i-need-to-worry-about-the-guar-gum-in-my-coconut-milk/38227#38227 If you've been staying away from processed food for a while, you might be more susceptible to it.
Also, I'm not too wild about the idea of carrageenan which has been linked with cancer.
Also see this discussion on Paleohacks:
If you don't react physically to the food, in the end it's your decision where to draw the line.
Sometimes I definitely miss ice cream and its hard to find one that's Paleo friendly- i'm actually considering buying my own ice cream maker!
Hope this helps. :)
We just scored a $5 cuisinart ice cream maker from a friends' yard sale, and I blended up coconut milk, vanilla, two egg yolks and added whole rasberries...it was pretty good, but I'm thinking I'll add a little stevia next time, and maybe a sweeter berry...mmmmm....blueberry season is only a month away! Every once in a while, I'll "cheat" with Larry and Luna's Coconut Bliss, but obviously, homemade is the way to go for the occasional indulgence! Superior nutrition and taste...
I've been experimenting with adding sweet potato to these kind of recipes to up the sweet factor in the final product. The Japanese sweet potatoes (satsumas) are pale in color and taste a bit like roasted chestnuts.The Okinawan sweet potatoes are also very sweet, but they are purple.They don't seem to have as much stringy fiber either. This makes them easy to incorporate. Try it!
Ive been thinking of picking up a cheap ice cream maker, since I figured something like this would be fairly simple to make, but I would have control over all the ingredients so I could not only do flavors I would enjoy, but make sure no industrial stabilizers or other franken foods got in there.
I love being paleo and really never get cravings for anything that I have given up, except for the occasional ice cream, especially now that its warming up.
