Salted Claire's Goodness Almond Butter Ice Cream
This oh so creamy coconut milk ice cream has the perfect balance of salty and sweet from Claire’s Goodness sprouted almond butter. A lot of natural sweetness shines through in this recipe so it requires very little added sugar, which is always a bonus!
It is definitely not a low fat recipe, but the fats in it are all healthy medium chain fatty acids from the coconut and healthy monounsaturated fats from the Claire's Goodness almond butter.
I honestly prefer my desserts higher in fat, as long as it is from healthy sources of fat (insert link to healthy fat blog). Why? With more fat you get more flavor and don’t need to use as much sugar. Less fat, and you need a whole lot more sugar to compensate.
Desserts higher in fat are much richer and more filling, where high sugar desserts leave us craving more and more without feeling satisfied. Healthy fats help control our blood sugar to prevent spikes that we get when we eat foods high in sugar and carbohydrates.
So for all those reasons, please enjoy this full bodied ice cream with no guilt ;) It is full of only natural, nourishing ingredients for your body and quick to whip up when you need a little frozen comfort.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Churn Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 5 servings
Gluten Free, Paleo, Dairy Free, Raw
- 1 14oz Can Full Fat Coconut Cream
- 2-3 Tbsp Raw Honey (can sub Maple Syrup for vegan)
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- ¼ Tsp Sea Salt
Blend all ingredients in blender on high until smooth – I recommend starting with 2 tbsp honey and tasting it, then you can add an extra tbsp if you want it sweeter.
Start ice cream maker and pour ingredients into it while it is moving. Churn 20-25 minutes. Ice cream will not be hard but should form soft serve consistency. Enjoy as is or freeze an additional 30-60 minutes for harder consistency. Drizzling extra Claire's Goodness almond butter on top is never frowned on ;)
**NOTE Since this ice cream has no filler ingredients, it will get rock hard when stored in the freezer. Keep this in mind if you plan on eating it the next day – you will want to set it out about 20-30 minutes ahead of time to let it soften up.
