Notes

Stevia or Coconut Sugar: I used stevia for this recipe because I like the taste. However, if you do not like stevia, or aren’t living sugar-free, you can use coconut sugar in this recipe. Another sugar-free option would be xylitol. If Xylitol is used, you could try 2 tablespoons, ground before adding to the recipe.

Rum: if you don’t like rum at all, don’t add it! You could replace it with water, some vanilla extract or your favorite coconut milk.
