WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM?
What is the nutritional value of Keto Low-Carb Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream? Coconut milk is dairy-free. In fact, it isn’t milk at all. Its heavenly rich liquid comes from inside mature coconuts stored within the “meat.” When cracked open, the coconut’s liquid is watery (coconut water). When this water is blended with the coconut meat and strained, the substance becomes thicker and is referred to as coconut milk.
Younger coconuts are higher in water and contain more natural sugar and certain electrolytes, while mature ones are higher in the ‘meat’, thus higher in healthy saturated fatty acids (from the oil) and calories.
Coconut milk contains beneficial fat called lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid easily absorbed and utilized by the body. Lauric acid is antibacterial and antiviral, hence a great ingredient to be consumed in cold and flu season.
Coconuts’ fatty acids are also believed to be “good-for-you” saturated fat that reduces inflammation of the body and brain, improves circulation, and keeps blood vessels flexible and free from plaque buildup. This, in turn, helps to lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure, and potentially prevent heart attacks and strokes. Due to its healthy fats, this drupe improves digestion and relieves constipation, thus improving gut health as well.
Its fat content is believed to aid in slowing the rate at which sugar is released into the bloodstream, thereby controlling insulin levels and preventing a sugar high.
Rich and delicious coconut milk makes for the most scrumptious frozen desserts. I absolutely love this refined sugar-free, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free ice cream.
IS COCONUT MILK KETO FRIENDLY?
Coconut milk is a great option for those following a ketogenic diet. It is low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, making it a perfect addition to your keto meal plan. Coconut milk is made from the flesh of mature coconuts, which are high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), a type of healthy fat that can help you stay in ketosis. MCTs are metabolized differently than other types of fats, as they are quickly converted into ketones by the liver, which your body can use for energy. Additionally, coconut milk is a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and iron. However, it is important to note that some brands of coconut milk may contain added sugars or thickeners, which can increase the carb count. It is best to choose unsweetened coconut milk and check the nutrition label to ensure it fits within your daily carb limit.
