Coconut Secret Ice Cream Review

Do you remember my post about Coconut Secret Products??  If you missed it you can catch up here!!  I just loved their products that I reviewed before, they were amazing!!

So, when I was contacted by a representative again to review a new product they are launching, I was ecstatic!!

They now make non dairy ice cream called Raw Coconut Cream.

“Raw” Coconut Cream non-dairy frozen desserts are sweetened with our very own low glycemic Coconut Nectar.  Available in four amazing flavors, these are the first ever made from fresh raw coconut cream (not pasteurized coconut milk) made fresh every single batch.  And, as with all of the Coconut Secret products, our Coconut Creams are Certified Organic, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Non-GMO, and Soy-Free.

It was shipped to me in a huge box of dry ice and it was still frozen when it arrived!!

Ummmm……disregard the one with bites already taken out of it….

My kids thought this was the coolest thing ever, to have ice cream delivered to their door!!

Lucky for them it arrived after lunch and they got to enjoy a bowl with a spoon of each flavor……Pina Colada, Berry Fusion, Caribbean Chocolate, and Madagascar Vanilla….delicious!!

This product is a must try!

A Visit By the Fairy Hobmother!!

Most of you know that we experienced a fire in our kitchen the day before Easter.

Thankfully, we were all safe and the fire did minimal damage in the grand scheme of things.

However, we have been in the process of gutting and redoing our entire kitchen!

We have pulled up the ceramic tile floor, ripped out all of the cabinets, and basically started with a clean slate.

Our new kitchen will have all new floors, cabinets, paint, and much more!!

Almost all of my small kitchen appliances, silverware, etc had smoke damage and some things even got totally ruined in the fire like my husband’s beloved lunch box-which we replaced right away!

During all of this I received an email from someone called the Fairy Hobmother……

All Natural Homemade Sweetener

Have you ever made your own homemade sweetener?

This recipe is super cool and it is a great thing to keep in your fridge for when you want to use an all natural sweetener!

This is called Date Paste!

It is made with DATES!!

These are medjool dates with the pits removed…make sure you are using pitless dates or REMOVE the pits prior to making!

First, soak about 1 cup of dates in some water for about an hour.

They will plump up pretty quickly!

Pour the soak water into another container.

Place dates into a food processor….

and process for 1-2 minutes.

Add in 1-2 tablespoons of the soak water and process for another 1-2 minutes…..

Additional soak water may be added to smooth out the date paste.  I ended up putting this mixture into my blender to really get a smooth consistency!

It looks and tastes like caramel!

Dip sliced apples right into the jar!!!

Dates are extremely rich source of dietary fiber, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B5, Vitamin C and Vitamin A.

They also contain magnesium, potassium and iron!

Date paste is not an “empty” sweetener- it is sweet, but it contains a lot of health benefits!

Use date paste to replace honey, agave, or sugar in your recipes…you can even bake with it!  Store it in your fridge for up to 10 days!

Stay tuned for a recipe using this date paste!!
