We lightened up this popular Bahamian treat by substituting yogurt for the cream that’s customarily used.

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce (400g) can reduced fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp powdered agar
  • 20 oz plain, nonfat yogurt or vanilla soy yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (omit if using vanilla soy yogurt)
  • 1 Tbs coconut rum (optional)
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut

Directions

  • Combine coconut milk, honey and agar in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat stirring frequently until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in yogurt, vanilla, rum and coconut. Refrigerate until well-chilled, at least 1 hour.
  • Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Let glacé ripen in freezer 1 hour before serving.
