Made with golden turmeric, creamy coconut milk, and pure maple syrup from Canada, this vegan gelato is subtly sweet summer dessert with no refined sugar.

“As an added bonus, the turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, the cashews supply healthy fat and protein, and the pure maple syrup contain manganese, which may support muscle health,” says Natalie Rizzo, M.S., R.D., a nutrition consultant with Pure Maple Syrup from Canada.
