    I get my almond butter at costco - a 26 oz jar is like $6 - thats pretty good. Its about $9 at Fred Meyers (Krogers). If this high fat thing works I will stocking up!

    I'm trying to see if I can make ice cream with stevia.... I'm thinking I can - but it might not set up a firmly as it does with sugar. I could use honey - but that defeats the purpose. Honey is natural......... but its still lots of carbs!

    I am finding a lot of other good recipes though! Time to try something new I think.......... Chicken Pinwheels! Chicken, thinly sliced, wrapped with a slice of prosciutto ham and fried on a combo of EVOO and ghee. That sounds nummy!

    I've made ice cream with Splenda. It works but isn't as "creamy".. Slightly, more like ice milk.

    did you use heavy whipping cream and half & half?

    Here's my recipe:

    1 quart heavy cream
    1 quart half & half
    7 whole eggs
    2 cups sugar
    vanilla (to taste) - I use about a 1/4 cup cuz we like it RICH!


    Its basically egg nog made into ice cream! YUMMY!

    I figure without the sugar its all good! But I don't want to try it unless I am pretty sure its going to work.

    thanks! but something looks a bit off with that chart. If 1 cup sugar = 1 teaspoon stevia ........... then how could 1 TB sugar = 1/4 teaspoon stevia ???? That doesn't seem consistant........ I mean doesn't it seem logical if 1 cup = 1 tsp, then 1/4 cup = 1/4 tsp. RIGHT?

    I'm so confused!!!

    I've just read the ingredients of the Stevia in the Raw that I purchased......... It contains maltodextrin - wonderful. It also says "cup for cup - measures just like sugar" so I guess 2 cups of stevia would go in my ice cream mix.

    I had to hunt down my ice cream maker and recipe to be sure.

    Initial recipe-tweaks in parenthesis:
    2 cups heavy cream
    2 cups light cream (have used half & half)
    1 cup sugar (Splenda--might be better with less than a cup)
    1.5 tsp vanilla
    1/8 tsp salt

    Tomi, there are two kinds of stevia - the kind with maltodextrin, which is what you usually find in packets (because otherwise the amount of pure stevia in there would be too small to handle) and pure stevia, in powder form. You can also get it in liquid form, so the form you are using is going to make a huge difference. I would suggest making a mini-recipe of your ice cream and just add stevia till it tastes right.

    For home use, I buy the pure powdered stevia. It comes with a teeny-tiny spoon to approximate one teaspoon of sugar. I get the packets only to have some in my purse for coffee shop lattes. I don't like the taste as well as the pure stevia, but I'm not going to start carrying a bottle around in my purse.

    I think trying to go VLC will probably do you a world of good, especially if you stick to it for more than a couple of weeks or even months. That should get the sugar monkey off your back. I would suggest learning how to enjoy the foods you're eating for what they are, instead of looking for substitutes for your old eating habits. I am learning to drink herb teas for my "comfort" foods, instead of trying to eat sweets, even my beloved dried fruit. I have also tried to get away from the snacking habit as much as possible too. Why on earth do we need to eat between meals, while watching TV or movies, or in the car? My biggest problem there is impulse eating in the kitchen, and I combat that mainly by getting those foods out of sight. And by telling myself no. I mean, one of the points of eating primal was to get out of the sugar crashes and constant hunger, which means we can concentrate on other things in life besides constantly sticking something in our mouths. It's really rather liberating.
