This Dairy-Free Rocky Road Ice Cream is a decadent treat perfect for these hot summer months. With Sweet Apricity marshmallows, it’s a cinch to throw together, but it’s delicious even if you have to leave them out. To make a non-AIP version, or if you have coconut allergies and/or do fine with dairy, substitute the coconut milk for equal parts milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. The carob can also be replaced with bittersweet chocolate for those of you that have already reintroduced it and the amount of honey should be adjusted to taste. Whether you like it bitter or sweet, this treat is sure to satisfy!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
