VEGGIE SUBSTITUTES: If you wan to make this vegan, just substitute the condensed milk for coconut cream and skip the eggwhites. It’ll be more of a sorbet, but still vey yummy! The substitute for egg whites is full of starches and baking soda and other things that have no place in a healthy dessert. If you do substitute for coconut cream, it won’t be fat free anymore. It comes up to about 2.6 grs of fat/ serving -not too much at all- but it is the most saturated kind of fat, so don’t have it too often!
