This is an adults-only treat!
If you are a fan of the Irish Cream served as a liqueur or splashed over ice cream or other desserts, this is how you make a healthy version rich with all the flavor but with none of the sugar. I provide the dairy-free version here. Replace the coconut milk with an equivalent quantity of cream or half-and-half for a dairy version. And, to keep costs low and avoid the nasty bitter aftertaste of stevia, use Wheat-Free Market’s Virtue Sweetener, the natural sweetener created for the Wheat Belly lifestyle.
I’ve made this many times and presented as a gift in a decorative glass bottle, perfect for the holidays. Optionally, top with shaved dark chocolate or a stick of cinnamon. For an alcohol-free version, leave out the rum.
Makes approximately 2 cups
1 14-ounce can coconut milk

Sweetener equivalent to ½ cup sugar, e.g., 1 tablespoon Virtue Sweetener
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unflavored rum
In blender, combine eggs, coconut milk, cocoa powder, sweetener, coffee granules, cinnamon, rum and blend until well combined.
Store in airtight bottle or jar in refrigerator.
