THM Vanilla Ice Cream

Yep, it’s hard to resist a bowl of sugar-laden ice cream. Recently, I was visiting friends who served me a sugar and grain-free lemon meringue pie – WITH a scoop of ice cream. I enjoyed every last bite of my pie and ice cream. I secretly felt a little guilty eating the ice cream. I am a Trim Healthy Mama and I have a blog about THM and I kinda feel like when people are looking I should be doing the right thing.

BUT, the ice cream was so yummy and just right paired with the lemon meringue pie. I had two servings, shhhh! Don’t tell.

Now, my lovely hosts are also Trim healthy Mama’s and Papa’s and I thought maybe they were just being polite with the ice cream thing. Imagine my pure shock and delight when they revealed that the ice cream was Trim Healthy Mama Ice Cream! And easy to make with no fancy ingredients or footwork. After that discovery, I went back for thirds! It may have been a little bit of calorie abuse, but it was gooood.

This recipe is really easy: mix it, freeze it, eat it.

  1. I can’t use xylitol – what can I substitute?

     
    • Hi Jess, if you can not use xylitol you can use a stevia and erythritol blend. There are two that I use and stick in my shop. There is the THM brand and another Aussie brand. Try with 2 tablespoons and see if that is sweet enough.

    Hello! I am so thankful for your website! I just moved to the Perth area from America and I am trying to learn the new ingredients here etc – esp THM approved or equivalent products. Is there a list somewhere that has what brands etc we can use for protein powder, sweetener, collagen, etc? I am very lost. I am assuming you are busy- so if you can’t answer this I understand. But any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

     
    • Hello Katie, Welcome to Australia. Learning which products from the THM plan are available here and which ones aren’t is something all us Aussie Mamas have grappled with. We have a great THM Australia group on Facegroup were you will find files on what products we can use here for the plan and where to source them from. Our admins are also super knowledgeable about all things THM and will answer any of your questions within a few hours.
      Of course, I have researched some of the best options for the Australian Mamas and stock these in Aussie Mamas shop. You may also find this shopping list helpful: http://aussiemamas.com.au/trim-healthy-mama-shopping-list/
