Diabetic Friendly Kesar Badam Kulfi

Updated: Oct 8, 2018

Healthy traditional saffron infused Indian ice-cream with almonds

This is a simple but delicious recipe for Kulfi (Indian Ice Cream) that we have adapted to make it healthy. Here we use greek yogurt/hung curd as the base instead of milk which makes its extra creamy. We have made this several times, and it always gets rave reviews - even the kids love it! For extra flavor, you could add a few drops of rose water or ground pistachios.
