Best sugar free ice cream EVER!!

We used our normal sugar free vanilla ice cream recipe (which is like the best sugar free ice cream recipe in the world!) and then added…wait for it…




OK. Seriously… My dad who always only likes vanilla ice cream (with a passion), said this was EVEN BETTER than vanilla. Say whaaat?! And my mom said it was the best ice cream she’d ever tasted…OK, enough bragging, haha, let’s get to the recipe! 😉

We used our normal sugar free vanilla ice cream recipe (which is like the best sugar free ice cream recipe in the world!) and then added…wait for it…cardamom and licorice powder!! If you don’t like licorice at all you can skip it since cardamom ice cream is heavenly by itself, but the combination of vanilla, cardamom, and licorice in this ice cream was BEYOND AMAZING, so I dare you to try it!

We always sweeten our ice cream with xylitol and real undiluted stevia extract. You can sweeten only with xylitol if you’d like, but we choose the combo of both xylitol and stevia extract because they work together to create a perfect sweetness, without any sugar! I’ve provided you with both options in the recipe.

(Disclaimer about measurements: If you’re in the States where metric measurements are not common, then use google to convert the measurements for you. That’s what I always have to do when I use American recipes. A tip is to buy a set of measuring cups that also show ml.)

3 egg yolks
300 ml cream
200 ml milk
50 ml xylitol and a pinch of stevia extract
OR 75 ml of xylitol
½ tsp Bourbon vanilla powder (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp licorice root powder

How to:
1. Pour milk, xylitol (or xylitol & stevia extract), egg yolks, cardamom, licorice, and vanilla into a pot. Whisk while heating up the mixture for approx 5 min on medium temperature. The mixture should thicken like a curd but is not allowed to come to a boil!

2. Take the pot away from the heat and put in a cold water bath to cool. Stir occasionally so the mixture doesn’t start to clump.

3. Pour the heavy cream into the cooled mixture and stir.

4. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the instructions for the specific ice cream machine you have.

5. Put the ice cream into a bowl and either serve right away or store in freezer for a few hours before serving. If the ice cream has been in the freezer over night it needs to sit for about 10-15 min in room temperature before serving.

Enjoy!! 🙂

Who are You?

Everyone has a story. Our stories are what color in the details of who we are and how we show up to the world around us, and how we engage with it/them: relationships, jobs, schools, etc. We were all intentionally and intelligently designed to be unique individuals.  When we discover who we are, where we came from, and what we were designed for in this lifetime, we find the freedom in seeing ourselves in our truest identity.  It is in this freedom, our personal story can be expressed organically and experienced by others.

The messages of our stories are often communicated and translated through the ways we impact and interact with the people we are privileged to have in our lives— whether for a short while, or for a lifetime. When we discover who we are and the purpose we were uniquely designed to fulfill, we begin to not only value ourselves, we also begin to value others around us at the same capacity of which we value ourselves. Our intentions, interactions, and impact become more authentic, vulnerable, and hold a greater potential to add life changing value to the lives we are privileged to be a part of.

So how do we begin to discover who we are at our core and what we were designed to live for? Awareness is the first step. Taking an inventory of our character, our morals, our values, our tendencies, patterns, feelings, passions, attitudes, relationships can be key to self discovery. These are the fruit from seeds that have been planted in the soil of our young minds from the moment we were even conceived– unconsciously. Taking a brave trip down memory lane to take a good look at where we’ve historically come from, is another key factor to self discovery. These impactful experiences, whether big or small, manifest in our idiosyncrasies. Some of which would be ideal to change, because we and others around us, deserve them to be changed.

We as humans will inevitably share similarities. The genetic and neurological composition of our individual beings however, are uniquely different. When we take a good look at who we are at our core there is a lot to discover about how intentionally and intelligently we were uniquely designed to be, and the life we were destined to uniquely live; serving the world around us at different capacities and various ways.

Here are some questions to ask yourself…
1. Who are you?
2. Where did you come from?
3. What were your designed for here on earth?
4. How were you created to impact the world around you?
5. What does your unique design have, to solve a problem that exists in the community that surrounds your life?
6. When are you going to venture out into a courageous journey of fully living at your greatest potential and impacting at your optimal?
7. What or who do you need in your life, to make this happen? (I call this, resourcing up!)

Sometimes, we need someone in our corner coming alongside us through the journey of self discovery. For those interested in discovering their truest identity and the possibility of unlocking their greatest potential, connect with me! I’d be happy to be a part of that journey and see you thrive as the best version of yourself!
