Maple Syrup Sweet Potato Ice Cream
This recipe is decadent especially if you are following the Detox 4 Women diet since it uses maple syrup and coconut milk but here it goes anyway! (I did try a friendlier version, but without the syrup and milk it tasted like really cold mashed sweet potatoes).
1 lb roasted sweet potato, mashed
2 cups coconut milk
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp pumpkin spice
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can freeze your mashed sweet potato. Use an ice cube tray so it’s not one big frozen lug that you have to stab with a knife to break up (I learned my lesson, ouch!) Add all ingredients in a blender. I like to add chopped up pieces of the unsulphured ginger in cane sugar that they sell in the health food stores for an extra kick! Mix it in manually at the end. More liquid and it’s more of a pudding.
