Toasted Quinoa Salad With Grilled Halloumi, Fresh Herbs And Tahini Dressing (low FODMAP, low Fructose, Gluten-Free) // mit gegrilltem Halloumi, Kräutern und Tahini-Dressing (vegetarisch, gluten-frei, fructosearm) //

Naturally she was my first choice to review a new fructose friendly and refreshing treat for you: Coconut ice cream! Unfortunately this product is only available in Germany for now. We didn’t want to deprive you of these gorgeous images though. That’s why I’m sharing my translated version of her write-up with you here. Enjoy!
