Ice-cream, who doesn’t like them? From a toddler to an elderly person, ice-creams resonate extremely well because they taste good and makes you happy. The common perception however is different where ice-creams are always linked to causing weight-gain.

Hence, indulging in ice-cream can be bad for health if taken too much because of it is calorific and high on sugar. Besides that, it is addictive. So, we believe that being healthy need not mean that you should stop eating ice-creams altogether. What if we told you that there is a healthy way of enjoying and indulging in ice-cream. On top of that, you can do this yourself with only 3 ingredients?

What you need?

You will need to prepare the following ingredients:

  1. 5 to 6 tablespoons of starch (corn or tapioca will do)
  2. 1 and a half cups of high-fiber juice (can be fruits or vegetables)
  3. Half a cup of coconut milk

The process
First, take half of the coconut milk you have prepared and blend it with the starch. Stir it thoroughly until you see that the texture is smooth. Then, with the remaining half of the milk, heat it up with a small saucepan. Do this in low heat and stop when you start noticing bubble (almost boiling).

Then, you can pour the earlier set onto the pan and let it simmer to bubbly a bit before stirring lightly. When the texture is thicker, pour it out onto a bowl. With the juice you have prepared, add it in while topping with other fruits like banana, strawberry and apples. Let the mixture cool down and then put in the fridge for further chilling.

The benefits
This mixture is very good for your health because of the coconut which is a strong antioxidant your body needs. It helps to regulate blood pressure while its medium chain triglycerides (MCT) helps to produce ketones that channels energy for the brain thereby giving your body energy without raising your blood sugar level. The fruits and vegetables meanwhile provide your body with the fiber that it needs, helping to break down foods and such.
