Coconut Ice Cream with Blackberry Coulis

This creamy, dairy-free alternative to ice cream is rich in antibacterial and antiviral coconut. The berries in the coulis-a traditional fruit sauce-are high in fiber and healing antioxidants. You can use any type of berry you prefer, or substitute cherries and vanilla for the blackberries and mint.



This is a great way to use leftover sweet potatoes and black beans. Black beans add lots of protein and fiber.
