Frequently asked questions
While unsweetened almond milk is recommended as a low-carb option, you can experiment with other unsweetened nut milks like coconut and cashew, or traditional milks to suit your preferences.
No, the sugar-free white chocolate pudding mix, along with the other ingredients, provides sufficient sweetness. However, you can taste the mixture before freezing and adjust sweetness to your preference by adding a sugar-free sweetener like monk fruit, allulose, stevia or erythritol if desired.
