Indulge in Guilt-Free Sweetness: Jaggery-based Ice Creams for a Healthier Diwali
Diwali, along with its lights and the festive season, is a time for happiness, family, and of course, sweets. But for those who are health-conscious, the customary sugar-filled mithais often come with a side of guilt. This Diwali, let us celebrate healthily, savoring the delicious world of ice creams made from jaggery, not sugar. In addition to being delicious, these frozen treats have several health advantages.
“The star of our healthier Diwali celebration, jaggery is an unrefined sugar with digestive and immunity-boosting qualities. Rich in vital minerals like calcium and iron, it is a healthy alternative to adding sweetness to our holiday confections,” says Shuchi Jain, Founder, Zimero.
With traditional Indian flavors like cardamom, saffron, and dry fruits, jaggery ice creams are expertly crafted, combining the earthy sweetness of jaggery with culinary arts. This fusion of old and new gives your palate a one-of-a-kind experience, allowing you to savor the essence of Diwali more healthily.
Jain adds, “These ice creams are incredibly versatile. Whether you prefer classic flavors like nut crunch or daring combinations like roasted almond and choco-chips, there is a jaggery ice cream to suit your palate. You can even consider inventive combinations inspired by traditional Indian sweets, such as jaggery and coconut or gulkand and rose. Like the tapestry of our culture, it is rich and varied.”
These treats are guilt-free, which is their best quality. With a lower glycemic index and fewer calories than traditional sugary sweets, jaggery-based ice creams are an excellent choice for those wanting a natural and healthier option.
“This festive season, opt for ice creams with jaggery, not sugar as an ingredient to enhance the taste and well-being of your celebrations. Have fun indulging without feeling guilty, and may this Diwali bring you health, happiness, and the comfort of memories. A prosperous and sweet Diwali to you,” signs off Jain.
