It’s getting to be that time of year where all I ever think about is ice cream. And being on the GAPS diet means that ice cream is pretty much completely off the menu.
Or so I thought…
Let me introduce you to my family’s newest favorite treat: this gorgeous, easy, healthy, completely GAPS-friendly (stage 6 and beyond that is) 2-ingredient Mango Nice Cream.
The end of ice cream?
Ever since going gluten-free after the birth of my son, ice cream was a struggle. By the time I took out everything I was intolerant to – gluten (so nothing cookie or brownie), corn (so nothing with corn syrup), and eggs (so nothing real) – I was left with the three basic options: chocolate, vanilla, and mint.
Not that I don’t love those three flavors, they happen to be amazing ones, they just got a little old after… years. And then I realized I couldn’t have sugar. Of any kind. Except honey. There went my three allowances!
A better choice.
So I decided to go into business making my own ice cream. Not really, though I suppose I could call feeding my family a business. 😉 I began whipping up yummy treats like my Honey Kiwi Soft Serve and my Mint Ice Cream with Fudge Swirl. And the natives rejoiced.
If you’re looking to enjoy a sweet treat this summer without sacrificing your health, please let me introduce you to this delicious nice cream. With only 2 ingredients, it’s an quick and easy treat. All you need are a couple mangoes and some coconut oil. Of course, you could always add in some vanilla, or a little honey if you want it sweeter, but it seriously doesn’t need any help being delicious.
