Oh boy am I ever excited!! I was able to make ice cream the other day using my Homemade Coconut Milk!! I found great recipes on The Nourishing Gourmet website except they use canned coconut milk. I’m willing to bet the texture would be even BETTER if you did use canned coconut milk, but because of the expense, I decided to try my homemade coconut milk in a recipe. The original recipe is here.
Vanilla Ice Cream (with Coconut Milk)
1 1/2 cups homemade coconut milk, chilled
2-4 Tbsp. honey (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1. Mix all ingredients together with a wire whisk or hand mixer. (It helps to put some “air” into it.)
2. Pour into ice cream maker and process according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. (I did mine on “low” for 20 minutes.)
3. Eat and enjoy or freeze in a container with a lid.
*Right out of the ice cream maker the texture was great, but did melt fairly quickly. After freezing in the freezer, it hardened up quite a bit, but we were still able to scoop it out (it wasn’t as hard as a rock).
*Serve by itself, with fruit and nuts or on top of Coconut Flour Brownies or Coconut Flour Brownies with Zucchini!
