People say that vegans are deprived of "good food", but how do they actually define what "good food" is? They always have that misconception that we are only consuming mainly fruits or vegetables, which is super ridiculous. We get to enjoy ice cream in the healthiest form too - free of preservatives, flavourings and colourings. And that's the best part ;) Adding on, who doesn't love chocolate? Vegans too, can enjoy chocolate without the added sugar or weird ingredients added into chocolate bars sold in stores.
I went onto trusty iherb the other day, and bought carob powder. Carob is a chocolate substitute that, unlike cocoa, carob contains no caffeine or theobromine. Compared with plain cocoa powder, plain carob powder is lower in fat. Additionally, carob boasts a significant amount of calcium—about three times as much as you’d get from cocoa. Therefore, if you're looking for a better alternative for chocolate to use for baking etc, try using carob powder! :)
As you can tell from the title, all you'll need for your very own chocoalate nana ice cream is 2 simple ingredients!
