    12g coconut powder
    8g of sugar free fat free Jello Pudding Mix

    300g almond milk

  • Although 21g per day is far more guar gum than anyone would reasonably encounter in their diet, even small amounts could cause unpleasant symptoms in those with sensitive digestive systems, and I’ve had patients with gut issues improve after removing guar gum from their diet. With that in mind, I think it makes sense to avoid guar gum if you have gut issues, like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) or IBS, unless you’ve removed it and added it back in without noticing any harmful effects.
    (CHECK Chris Kresser website, quoted from)

  • Mine came out creamy, but icy. Just wondering did I do something wrong or is this the way it should be? Thank you for anyone who knows the answer. xo

  • And what if someone is allergic to coconut? What else can we use? Just wondering because my mom is allergic to it after years of actually eating coconut and Drinking the coconut water she became allergic:(

  • I Appreciate the Video! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about Loranzan Incredible Physique Builder (erm, check it on google should be there)? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my BF finally got great 6 pack abs and lost lots of fat with it.

  • Wow! Not only is this bad for heath, but REALLY BAD because it gives the illusion of health…which encourages frequent consumption. Yikes! Chemicals that kill.

  • I have never tried adding dried cranberries to my strawberry nicecream but it was sooo delicious!!!
    Thank you very much for these great ideas ♡♡♡

  • weight loss green store tea has really helped me get back to my grind. I am now more energetic, I think much quicker, and my mood is always bright. I incorporated eating healthier. I stopped eating junk food and drinking soda and I feel like I’m healthier than I have ever been when I was younger.

  • Dios!! que deliiiciaaa!!!������ quede encantada enserio jj.. y ya q aqui en Argentina estamos en verano me viene super estas ideas!! Muchas Gracias Ana!! ☺������

  • Hi. Mine turned out the consistency of a thick marshmallow. Did I add too much xanthum gum? I liked the flavor but the texture creeped me out.

  • im sure no one buys it because it has “health benefits”. im sure people buy it because the calories are low as fuckballs for the entire pint and you can eat it and still maintain your daily caloric intake.

  • Mmmm…..this looks really good. I’m definitely going to try it!…..this is the first time I’ve seen your channel and it looks pretty cool so far. Thanks!

  • I’m always afraid to eat raw eggwhites. It looks great! I used to blend frozen banana, frozen strawberries, soymilk, and dates for my ice cream. Alot more calories though…

  • I have been wanting to try banana ice cream. Except can’t you taste the banana? I have really enhanced taste buds and banana can have a strong flavor. ��

  • Why EGG WHITES… It is not good for Vegans… it is like eating Ovaries from a chicken.
    You only need Guar Gum + maybe a little powdered Irish Moss (light color) or even a little Organic virgin Coconut oil.

  • Interesting variation of Greg Doucette’s recipe. It really is amazing tho he uses Ryse Loaded Chocolate and PB protein powder and no jello. Looks great!

  • I’d love the coconut flavour in the ice cream, but I can’t eat raw coconut milk, I get so neasous by the taste… What can I have instead? A tsp of coconut oil? Grated coconut?

  • Yay! I am SO going to try to chocolate PB one! Would you mind adding in how many calories each thing you make is? I would love that!

  • I served this yesterday night to my family to show them that the vegan lifestyle is not bland and boring and they absolutely loved this. Thank u so much❤️

  • Great. Thanks for sharing. I could imagine frozen banana would be a nice twist?

    Btw.: its really easy (and cheap) to make your own almond milk.

  • Does it still work if the bananas aren’t frozen? I could add plain yoghurt for that cold factor but just wondering if the banas have to be frozen to make it a thick consistency.

  • u call this healthy?
    u just took out everything that was natural in ice cream like fruits and whipped cream and replaced it stuff that comes from bags and cardboards,this is all wrong to me!

  • What brand or model of blender do you use? I’ve been shopping for one and I like yours as it looks like its powerful and easy cleaning.

  • Hey guys, I recently penned a cookbook of Iow fat/fat free desserts that I’m trying to sell. If you have a minute, please check it out at: 

  • Hi I don’t want to be rude, but stevia in the raw or any commercial stevia product is a not fully stevia, it is mixed with maltodextrin, which is used in artificial sweeteners. ❤️ Thanks

  • thanks for sharing your recipe, i tried them all so far and want to ask if you can share your brand of coconut milk? i typically keep coconut milk on hand always but buy it in the carton (the sat fat content is a bit lower) but ordered organic unsweetened coconut milk in the can and it arrived but is just as liquid as my usual brand. in this video, your coconut “milk” looks more like coconut cream… could you or anyone here share their brand of coconut milk that isn’t in liquid form? thanks so much.

  • Hey, thank you so much for this video�� I am a huge ice cream fan and have been searching for a healthy and easy ice cream recipe for so long and all of the ones I have found required an ice cream stirring machine which I don’t have. I am so glad and surprised that coconut cream can make such a huge difference and give the ice cream consistency we want and how easy it is to make them! Can’t wait to try them out myself ��

  • Love it! Thank you so much for always thinking of your channel and subscribers. Your thoughts and messages mean so much to me and i am always so exited to see that tou have posted again. Another great video as always! Do you have any more breakfast/ dessert/ baking for under 100 calories, i would really really appreciate it (but please don’t feel pressured ☺️) i seriously strive to be more like you every single day and want to be as amazing, healthy, motivated and cheery as you when i am your age �� thank you so much x

  • This looks SOOO GOOOD:D!! Can you store it in the freezer? I’d like to make a lot, then store it, so that I don’t have to do the whole process every time (lazy bones). Thank you sooo much for the recipe!

  • When ever you eat an unhealthy food, you are substituting that food for a healthy food…So it’s a double whammy. No Fiber, no antioxidants, bad cholesterol and high in sugar.

  • The Harmful Side Effects of Guar Gum | LIVESTRONG.COM
    CHECK ABOVE OUT ALSO!  I only googled it due to not good taste I got from my folaffels!

  • Perfect for my pre-diabetic friend who drinks waayyy too many expensive frappacinos from Starbucks. I found the guar gum at Amazon where they have a lot of other low carb ingredients. Albertson’s Supermarket has a big selection but not guar gum. I used a regular egg white having no whites in a carton. I used a different brand of Stevia, but sparingly since a little of it goes a long way. Great result a fraction of the calories. Almond milk is great.  http://youtu.be/-ixVEpucVrw

  • I tried it once. Disgusting. That’s why Europeans laugh at us. We eat disgusting food and still manage to be fat. How is that possible.

  • Gotta try this. I love almond milk and love ice-cream but I was looking to find a low carb option because of my diabetes. this is perfect. The only calories in this item are coming from the almond milk and egg whites, and barely at all any from the coffee. Perfect.

  • This is an awesome recipe! I thought you were going to use bananas….I was like “noooo!”,lol! You could use bananas, but it really doesn’t taste like ice cream then. Thanks for posting!

  • What can i use instead of coconut milk?
    Last time I tried a recipe with just frozen bananas and coocoa powder.But it was liquid even after I froze it again after blending.This happened to me thrice.But for the recipe’s pictures were just like icecream.Any suggestions?
    And by the way I like recipes with less ingredients [as many ingredients arent easily available]
    Will try your recipe next time if i get the ingredients
    Thank you so much for your healthy recipes

  • I’d normally use half an ice cube tray for espresso, and the other half for cashew milk (less maintenance to make than almond milk, imho). Then I’d use a tablespoon or two of sugar-free Torani syrup of some sort for flavoring, along with around 1/2 cup of cashew milk… Having a Vitamix 6300, which has a preset for frozen desserts, I’ll take the tamper, and press all those ice cubes down, and boy, does that blend well, just as long as I can get the four mounds to form, and take without having to use the darn tamper the whole time.

  • Looks really good. Thanks for the recipe. One question though. Does the stevia leave any after taste in this recipe. I tried Stevia and Splenda in my coffee and both leave an awful aftertaste with each sip.

  • I just made the chocolate peanut butter one and I didn’t have a food processor and I have a blender but it cannot handle that lol so I had mixed it and it is so goood! I put it in the freezer to harden a bit and I feel I might make this again if I ever need a quick ice cream

  • No offence but I don’t think people really care that much about what you are cooking. They just wanna eat whatever made you look so good.

  • I finally got to try this one tonight. Not bad at all. The hard one to find was the guar gum, and I could not get the toffee extract so I substituted it with sugar-free chocolate. All and all not bad for those of us who like ice cream, but not the 1k calories and fat that come with it. Thx much =)

  • Can we mix all the ingredients first and then put them in the freezer? I had trouble blending the frozen banana.. it turned into a rock!

  • Man, this girl is trying to find a new flavor high above the “sweet” word on a dictionary…
    …50 percent of those ingredients are sweeteners!!!!
    Why mix all that?
    Try to eat stevia leaves and it will be way easier hehehehe…

    Just kidding…
    …great video and that’s a really smart recipe…

  • Definitely trying this recipe! Currently out of my protein powder atm but when I get more I will haha. I saw that you use 1UP for your protein-have you tried Ghost whey/some other flavor? Imo they have the best but I haven’t tried 1UP yet. Also pb2 is a favvvv of mine, the vanilla and chocolate pb2 versions are great. Can’t wait to try this recipe! Looking forward to more, keep it up Pernilla!

  • Hey guys. I make edits of celebrities, and it would mean a lot if you watched some of my videos. Subscribe, Comment Done and i will sub back ✨❤❤ i swear

  • Just made the mint chip… SO GOOD. The bananas I froze last night were a little overripe so I could definitely taste them but other than that it was so good. I would also recommend that people don’t blend for longer than necessary because the chips get smaller and smaller ��

    I also made mango ice cream by subbing it in your strawberry recipe!!��

  • I loved watching this video, thanks so much for sharing your life with the world and proving the a vegan diet can be amazing!
    I am a fellow vegan vlogger too!:)
    Happy new year, I hope you have a wonderful 2017, filled with friends, family and health <3

  • One does not need to be already diagnosed with diabetes to avoid sugar or choose a healthier option with an alternative sweetener such as stevia, monkfruit or erythritol. You also want to try to reduce your risk for developing metabolic syndrome and T2DM, not to mention slow the rate at which you age. So, you’re better off choosing the healthier options even if you don’t already have full blown diabetes — don’t listen to her. And suggesting conventional ice cream is healthy is ridiculous. Also, regular ice cream is extremely hyper-palatable, so I have no idea why she is claiming you’ll be less prone to cravings if you consume sugar-laden ice cream considering how insulinogenic and dopaminergic it is. You can make a healthier version to virtually anything, and ice cream is no exception. I have an MS in Nutrition and Metabolism, RDN, and BS in Nutrition/dietetics and biology in case anyone was wondering what my qualifications were to make a point.

  • If you don’t like her, then don’t watch her. It’s that simple people, no need to even comment. Just move along like an adult should ��������
