A Hot Weather Favourite: GAPS Friendly Maple Walnut Frozen Dessert!

For those hot summer days I've developed a dairy free GAPS friendly recipe for a frozen dessert. It really hits the spot!

But you can eat it anytime.

Ingredients for a double recipe enough for 6-8 servings:

2 cup coconut milk free of sulfites, carrageenan and starches like guar gum.
1 1/2 cup maple syrup (less maple syrup may suit your taste)
Two pinches of sea salt
10 tsp coconut flour
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 cups organic coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups walnut pieces

In a medium saucepan, heat coconut milk, maple syrup and salt, simmer for 30 minutes until thick like table cream.
In a small bowl, combine coconut flour and water to form a smooth paste.
Pour smooth paste into saucepan. 
Whisk the contents of saucepan vigorously and bring to a boil, briefly.
Remove pot from heat and gradually blend in coconut oil
Blend in vanilla
Place pot in freezer for 30-40 minutes, until dessert solidifies and turns white. 
Remove from freezer and blend again, until fluffy, then stir in walnuts

To make a smaller amount, just halve the amounts.

Enjoy your maple walnut frozen dessert.

To Your Health,
Dr. Barbara
