Coconut Ice Cream

This is such a healthy delicious treat. Better yet, it's cheap, easy and super fun to get wild and creative with.  I've made all sorts of flavors and have lots of ideas for more. For sweetening, I have used it all depending on what I have in the pantry. You can use maple syrup or honey, but if you use sugar I heat the coconut milk to melt the sugar. I use very little though, and have been known to use bananas, blueberries or dates for sweetening too. As for flavors you can change it up with lemon, lime, fruits , berries, vanilla bean, almond, orange, raw cocoa, carob, chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, fresh peppermint (or extract), and don't forget spices and wild herbs! Dandelion is delicious and fun in everything.   There is so much to try! 

  • 1 can coconut milk, full fat
  • Vanilla pod or Vanilla Extract
  • Maple Syrup 

Blend up in Vitamix and then put into the freeze. If it's a while before you are going to eat this, place in refrigerator. Place in freezer an hour at least before you desire to eat.  Stir a few times in between. It may need a few more minutes depending on desired freeze. Its ready to eat when you say so, however if you leave in freezer to long it becomes more icey rather than creamy deliciousness. Thus, Best if eaten before fully frozen. If there is left overs place in fridge and repeat freezer process. You can also make these into creamy popsicles, which will need to be left in freezer. Happy Summer!
