    Question about So Delicious Ice Cream

    Primal Fuel
    Hi there,

    Since going primal i've always looked far and wide for healthier alternatives, even when eating outside of normal Paleo/Primal Parameters. Found this product the other day in Whole foods (So Delicious Coconut Ice Cream - no sugar added). I was hoping someone could provide some "opinions" on this product because from a nutritional value side, it looks great (4 grams of sugar for the whole thing, 20 grams of sugar alcohol, BUT 75grams of Carbs).

    I guess i'm trying to figure out what are those carbs are (if not sugar, or dietary fiber)...what effect it has on my primal eating...if this really is a better alternative....Any thoughts and ideas are appreciated. Link to product - So Delicious Dairy Free: Introducing So Delicious No Sugar Added Coconut Milk Ice Cream!

    Thanks

    I'm sure it has a boatload of thickeners and other additives and I'd imagine that's where most of your carbs are coming from. I can't see it really being that much of a healthy alternative besides the fact that there's no sugar added.

    Oh, and I've tried the So Delicious brand coconut milk. I can't say it lives up to its name; it's so watered down I might as well just go with water.

    Well first off I will say its really good ice cream. I have only had a few bites of it however and the reason is that for me sweets dont really don't hold any sway. I have never had a sugar tooth.

    For my wife on the other hand it is great. Every blue moon she will have a quarter of a pint and it hits that sweet spot for her. If you use something like this as a tool to help you stay Primal long term and not feel like your "being bad" for giving in to the sweet tooth then more power to it.

    I would rather my wife be 95% Primal with the occaisonal So Delicious Ice cream sandwich or quarter pint of Mint chocolate chip then say 'oh I can't be Primal, I won't give up Ice cream."

    Just my opinion.

    I used to eat this ice cream before going primal. It's tasty, but costly and has too many ingredients for my liking now. Instead, freeze a few tablespoons of heavy whipping cream with something sweet. Like, when I'm in the mood for an Oreo cookie ice cream, I'll nuke unsweetened chocolate in a glass bowl, then mix in the cream and a bit of sweetener (I use xylitol--not exactly primal, but it's my fav). When it freezes (takes about half an hour), the chocolate settles to the bottom and breaks up like cookies.
    I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.

    Talenti brand gelatos and sorbets are pretty good. Not really primal, but each product has about 5-6 easy to read ingredients.

    I really like the Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss brand, also at Whole Foods. The pineapple flavor is amazing.

    I'm going to be honest with you...all that stuff is fake IMO. I'm making a writeup as we speak on how to make your own ice cream. The one I'm making right now is kind of complicated - it's a cheesecake ice cream made with chunks of chocolate-covered almond meal crust with a combination of heavy cream, coconut milk, raw cow's milk and kefir...but it'll give you an idea on how to make exotic flavors. If you want, I can put together something about how to make a basic vanilla ice cream that's not only sugar free but has the best quality fats you can use.

    This ice cream maker has been an absolute Godsend to me.

    If you're really into ice cream, the only way to go is to make your own IMO.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    If you want good ice cream go for something that has as few ingredients as possible (and the most natural). Haagen Daas 5, Talenti Gelato, and homemade ice cream are the best you can get IMO

    I have been recently making smoothies for my husband and child with a bit of coconut milk, and they turn thick, pretty much like sorbet in the beginning, before I adjusted the recipe to be thinner because they like to drink them not eat with a spoon. IIRC it was:

    ~ 2 tbsp coconut milk + a few drops of coconut flavor if want more tropical kick
    1/2 cup egg whites
    1/2 cup crushed pinapple
    1/2 cup frozen mango slices
    ~ 2 tbsp frozen concentrate orange juice
    1/2 frozen banana chopped

    a bit of sweetener if not sweet enough. Zoop in the Magic Bullet.

    Myself, I just use about a cup and a half of frozen berries and about 1/2 cup egg whites and ~ 1 tbsp of coconut milk. And eat with a spoon

    What the hell is Monk fruit? It bothers me that nobody else seems to use "monk fruit extract".
