Homemade Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

Every Wednesday night at 7:30 PM EST we have a Nutrition/Weight Loss Class here at our house. This class is also broadcast LIVE over the internet through our website. The attendees vary from 6 to 20 in our living room, sometimes it's standing room only. The website hosts anywhere from 20-50 people. The class also gets recorded for those who have other commitments on Wednesday nights.



Each week after class, the LIVE attendees always have a special treat from the Test Kitchen. We are constantly trying out new low glycemic recipes to keep our program exciting and do-able. This week we did something a little different after class. I demonstrated how to make Homemade Magic Shell, which is VERY easy- so easy in fact that I didn't hand out a recipe for it and basically just wing it every time.


Here are some guidelines when making Magic Shell:

Begin by melting about 1/4 cup of coconut oil in a saucepan, being careful to remove from the burner as soon as it is clear. Whisk in about 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa, 2 tablespoons of agave and 1/2 teaspoon or so of vanilla.Last night we had homemade vanilla coconut milk ice cream and topped it with the Magic Shell - everyone loved it! The coconut oil makes the mixture harden as soon as it hits the cold ice cream.


Give this chemical free ice cream topping a try, it's so easy.
