Vanilla Sauce – refined sugar and dairy free

Homemade ice cream in the evening topped with chocolate sauce and freshly picked strawberries is just amazing. For variety, I have been tinkering with a vanilla sauce instead. I LOVE it. I used it today as a dip for our strawberries…yum. If you’re looking to get your 4 tablespoons of healing coconut oil, this is a simple and delicious way.  I use coconut oil not only for its amazing healing properties for post-partum, but also for the nutrient value I need while nursing and its nourishing effects on the thyroid to improve metabolism. Well, really, there are so many other great benefits to coconut oil, you could go and read one of the many books written about its amazing design.

Vanilla Sauce

makes about 1/3 cup sauce

Ingredients:

  • 4 TB coconut oil, melted
  • 1 heaping TB coconut milk powder
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 1 TB raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or small scoop of a vanilla bean caviar 

Method:

~ Just mix all ingredients well in a small bowl. If poured on something cold, it will harden like a shell; left out during the summer, it is still sauce like and can be used as a dip.

Enjoy!
