Healthy Coconut Dessert:
I know it’s not exactly sunny but technically it is summer and let’s face it, sometimes you just want a treat so it’s no surprise I have ice cream on my mind.
But like most people trying to live a healthy lifestyle, I like my treats but I want healthy treats that will satisfy my sweet tooth and still be light in calories, and have some health benefits.
A few weeks ago, I shared and reviewed the benefits of WheyHey protein ice cream and this week, I bring you ZenZen coconut ice cream – a healthy non-diary ice cream alternative.
I had a brief chat with Jonathan Cole, the man behind the brand who was kind enough to give some samples (vanilla and coconut milk & mango) flavours to try.
Knowing the many health benefits of coconut, Jonathan decided to produce this low sugar, low calorie but tasty coconut ice cream alternative as a healthy treat . It is completely guilt free, delicious and a healthy alternative to all the other sugar laden ice creams currently on the market.

I had the opportunity to try vanilla as well as coconut milk & mango flavours, ZenZen is very creamy with the consistency of regular ice cream and sorbet. It also has a very distinctive taste – coconut milk with vanilla or mango, imagine the burst of flavours; it’s delicious with an exotic twist. ZenZen is a delightful, milky dessert – definitely worth a try.
If you are health conscious, then ZenZen will be right up your street; its unrefined natural coconut fats are a healthy option with many benefits from aiding in weight loss to boosting the immune system.
ZenZen also uses Sweet Freedom, a healthy natural sugar syrup product made from fruit with low GI so there are no artificial sugars.
