Stevia Sweetened Creamy Watermelon Ice Cream

Today over on The Chalkboard Mag {if you haven't checked out this magazine already, you're definitely missing out, it's great} you I'm sharing my Creamy Watermelon ice cream with chocolate swirls.

The best part about this ice cream is how healthy it is. There is absolutely NO sugar {unless you use agave to make chocolate, which is optional} what-so-ever and you'd NEVER ever know. 

For all of you who don't like the stevia flavor or the aftertaste, this recipe is for you!

I typically do not like the taste of stevia and when The Chalkboard Mag challenged me to to make a few recipes for them, sweetened with Sweet Leaf stevia, I jumped at the challenge. Not only for my own experimentation but I mainly did this because I know that I could change peoples' minds about this ingredient. It just takes the right recipes.

If you handed me a stevia packet for my coffee, I would turn it down! I don't like stevia in EVERYTHING but I wish I did because it has zero calories and is not made in a lab. It comes from a natural plant. It has been used in the past as a supplement to help control blood sugar of all things {go figure}! It's amazing. 

Concentrated sugar of all kinds {agave, honey, maple syrup, molasses, cane juice, etc.} are just not good for us. Sometimes we need the sugar rush {a long run or workout, etc.} but on a daily basis, it's best to go without sweeteners, if you can. But, I know, that's HARD. 

This recipe is wonderful because you'd never believe there wasn't any sugar in this ice cream. It's creamy and naturally sweet without the "diet" aftertaste or the chemicals.
