Snowman Coconut Ladoo

User Submitted Recipes, , , ,

I made this beautiful delicious snowman coconut ladoos for last year Christmas party and it was a top hit. As soon as I placed them on the table, all I heard was “WOW!” and that’s it. They got vanished in a glimpse of a second and of course, they were generous enough to leave me with a plate at least. This was the talk for a while among my family and friends. I had so much fun decorating them and that’s the time I got the idea of recreating this with my baby nephew. He was as thrilled as I was and we had an awesome aunt-nephew time together which is ineffable. Let your precious moment begins with your little ones as well!

Sugar free Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream using Coconut Milk

User Submitted Recipes, , ,

In my every day cooking I use a lot of coconut and coconut oil. But haven’t really tried them in making ice creams, until I saw a Coconut Milk Ice cream in one of the health food stores and also came across lot of recipes when I searched in internet on Coconut Milk ice cream. Most of the recipes either used sugar, agave, honey or maple. Even though the latter sweeteners are much better alternate than sugar in terms of dental health, they are high in fructose. So if you are watching your carb and sugars these are not for you. I finally nailed down a recipe using Xylitol and this was absolutely delicious. So try it out and let me know what you think. This recipe is so simple and you don’t need an Ice Cream maker for this.
