    Ice Cream

    Shop Now
    Before I went Primal, these raw, non dairy ice creams were one of my favourite treats (I've removed brand name etc as not sure on exact forum rules). I saw some in a shop today and thought that they seemed pretty much primal (despite sugar content - they are a treat after all).

    Chocolate - Water, Agave Syrup, Cashew Nuts, Cocoa Powder.
    Vanilla - Water, Agave Syrup, Cashew Nuts, Vanilla Oil.
    Coconut - Water, Agave Syrup, Cashew Nuts, Coconut.
    Ginger - Water, Agave Syrup, Cashew Nuts, Ginger Root.
    Maple Pecan - Water, Agave Syrup, Cashew Nuts, Maple Syrup, Pecan Nuts.

    Product (100ml) - Kcal - fat - carb - sugar - protein
    Chocolate - 153 - 7.8 - 17.3 - 14.3 - 3.5
    Vanilla - 160 - 8.3 - 18.2 - 15.8 - 3.0
    Coconut - 211 - 13.0 - 17.9 - 15.0 - 3.5
    Ginger - 164 - 8.4 - 18.8 - 16.1 - 3.2
    Maple Pecan - 164 - 9.6 - 16.7 - 13.4 - 3.1

    Would these constitute an acceptable primal treat?

    probably not the best things to eat, but definitely not the worst things either. i usually prefer homemade icecream, but these could do in a pinch.

    It sounds like the best thing. Delicious. Treat yourself, you earned it.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is HWC when it's at home?

    Another issue I have is that Stevia is illegal in the UK are there any suitable alternatives.

    That aside, I love the idea of making home-made cocunut milk ice cream; I must find the ice-cream maker at my parents house...

    'Heavy whipping cream'. Use UK double cream. (Jersey preferrable)

    Make an egg custard with it (French way) or just use it neat....freeze......add mashed berries or melted 85/90% choc. Eat. No need for sweet taste stuff; it's sweet enough! (But if desperate for more sweetness, use a little powdered glucose .)

    Thanks localad, is double cream relatively light on lactose?

    About 3% by weight. (for ref; butter about 1%) Are you lactose intolerant?

    You might be able to 'sour' it (ferment the lactose) with a spoonful of 'live' yogurt and a bit of warmth and a couple of days. Wow! 48% fat yogurt!

    I'd rather eat chocolate-avocado popsicles, too much cashew and my mouth gets raw (probably another allergy, knowing my luck.)

    Yeesh, what's up with this agave syrup crap? It's something like 90% pure fructose. It's the worst stuff out there. Seriously, give me HFCS any day. It's less poisonous. We need to make like Japan and start using stevia in everything. The fact that it's illegal in the UK is appalling. It's the ONLY good sweetener to use. If I absolutely had to use sugar, I'd stick to white death, maple syrup or honey. Stay away from that fake chemical crap, too.
