Something that can be slightly difficult for someone who doesn't handle dairy products well is the overcoming urge to have ice cream every now and again. I personally love "oh so delicious" brand of coconut milk (dairy free) ice cream. One night I was faced with the situation that my husband and I couldn't find it anywhere in our general area. This got me thinking it can't be that hard! After messing around a bit I came up with this recipe! Enjoy!
Start by opening up a can of organic full fat coconut milk. When you open it you want to pull out the top white part. This is the cream!
Mine took about half a can - and then it leaves the milky looking consistency thin is the coconut milk. Save this part it's great in smoothies!
Next add about a teaspoon of organic vanilla extract. This is the Healthy By Choice brand :)
Next add about a tablespoon of pure maple syrup.
Start to mix on about 2-3 speed
When you are done mixing out it in a glass bowl with a lid- put it in the freezer for about 2 hours and enjoy! Enjoy with some toasted coconut on top- yum!
If you let it sit overnight you will have to let it sit on the counter for about 20 minutes to let it thaw a little! It is amazing mixed with yogurt as well!
Leave me some comments & let me know what you think! I love hearing from you :)
