A healthier coke float

A healthier coke floatLast week I tried making popsicles for the very first time. This week I thought I will give a try on making an ice-cream float. I have never tried a soda float that I liked, but I definitely like the idea of it! I tried root beer float in the past and I hated it, maybe it's not my cup of tea (maybe root beer requires acquired taste). Anyhow I decided to go with coke this time and make it slightly healthier than usual recipes I have seen. Just because (I am not quite sure why I went with this challenge at all!)...

First I thought I will make diary free and low fat almond milk ice cream. I thought the taste of coke and almond would go well together, a bit like amaretto and coke! I froze some almond milk with a small amount of ground almond in the cups...A healthier coke float: attempt to make almond milk ice-creamBut when I whizzed it in the food processor (because I don't have ice-cream maker), it turned into something of sorbet consistency.  Not something I would put on top of the coke!A healthier coke float: attempt of making almond milk ice-creamNext I thought I will make the coconut milk ice-cream (something safer as many I heard tried and made this successfully). Not as low fat, but still on the healthy side ;-). Here is the recipe!

COCONUT COKE FLOAT

(for ice-cream)

  • 1 400ml can coconut milk (choose the creamiest brand like "Chaokoh")
  • 1 tsp stevia

(for soda)

  • coke life

1. First make the ice-cream, strain the coconut milk loosely so liquid separates from cream as much as it can. Mix the stevia into the cream and freeze the mixture for 3-5hours.A healthier coke float: making coconut milk ice-cream2. Once the cream is frozen (in shallow container preferably), break it up and whizz it in food processor. A healthier coke float: making coconut ice-cream3. The mixture will become chalk like, but don't worry! Once you start mixing it, the ice-cream should loosen up and gain cream texture (which is what we want! right?). A healthier coke float: making coconut milk ice-cream4. Finally, time to enjoy this ice-cream float! Pour the coke into the glass and then scoop the ice-cream on top. Alternativelly you can scoop the ice-cream first into the glass and then pour coke over it.A healthier coke floatEnjoy!
