Healthy Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

What? Healthy ice cream? I know what you’re thinking— YEAH RIGHT! But this recipe is as close to healthy ice cream as I’ve ever seen.

Palm sugar is a sweetener that is made from the sap present in the flower buds of the coconut palm tree. One of the biggest reasons of the popularity of palm sugar is due to its low glycemic index, a method of measuring how carbohydrates impact blood glucose levels. A high GI means that the food is rapidly absorbed by the body thereby increasing the blood sugar level and causing the pancreas to release large amounts of insulin. A low GI indicates that the food is slowly absorbed, preventing the spike in insulin level. Researchers have found that the GI of palm sugar is 35, compared to honey at 55 and table sugar at 68.

1 cup almond milk
⅔ cup palm sugar
3 tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
