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.

I have been wanting to make a sweet potato chaat (Shakarkandi Chaat) for some time now. It’s a savory and flavorful chaat, which also happens to be a very popular Delhi street food. I have tried to make this recipe many times but never quite perfected it! Last weekend I had the honor of being a guest judge for a cooking contest which was conducted virtually over Zoom! The contest was for the best air fryer recipe. The winner of this contest, Rashmi Sabjur, happened to make an eggplant chaat. While she was discussing her creative recipe, I got the idea of making a sweet potato chaat in the air fryer. Many people ask me how I am inspired to come up with new recipes…well the answer is people like Rashmi, and of course you all, my viewers! Traditionally, sweet potatoes are cooked over coal, cut into small pieces, and drizzled with lemon juice and spices to make it delicious and flavorful. This spicy chaat is also had a nice crunch. Try this recipe out soon! A special thank you to Rashmi for inspiring me to perfect sweet potato chaat!
