Healthy Coconut Mango Ice-Cream

Ever imagined what it would be like to chew on the clouds? well, today is your lucky day. This fitfam dessert is definitely what I imagine the fluff of the clouds will be like. Hooo… did I lose you at fitfam? are you thinking this might taste like high school punishment? think again. Think Ice-cream on a hot summer day that shrinks your waistline and gives you 6-pack abs. yes! this deliciousness has magical powers.

I honestly love the stuff. I even made it for Mum-in- law who is diabetic and she couldn’t believe how easy it was to eat her cake and have it too.

Oya, have I convinced you to try the recipe? I know you have banana, and you better have some coconut milk (cream). It is okay if you don’t have mango, substitute with whatever ripe delicious fruit you have, the recipe works with all sorts.

    This recipe is so easy and delicious. I had problems with dairy ice cream, in that I would eat far too much of it. Thank you so much for your healthy natural version. You are so talented.

      Yes, you can use any other fruit you prefer. Coconut milk is sold in thins in most local markets as well as supermarkets. You can also make your own using this recipe: Break apart a large coconut and remove the flesh. puree coconut with 2 cups of water. sieve resulting mixture to collect milk (discard chaff). Boil until reduced by half.
