Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

We have this great soft serve ice cream maker that we bought for Kenley's 2nd birthday party and sadly it has remained in the box for far too long! 


This week I decided that we needed some homemade ice cream in our lives! Healthier ice cream that I can feel good about letting the girls eat! 


I think they liked it! 

{This is actually Claire looking pretty clean... by the time she was finished there was no way that I could even carry her to the tub without becoming a sticky mess myself} 



Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of full-fat coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • scant 2/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions:
  1. Blend ingredients together (in a blender) until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps. 
  2. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and make per ice cream maker instructions (mine took about 20 minutes) 
  3. Enjoy!
*Our ice cream maker is "soft serve" so the ice cream is consumed right after it is done churning, I froze the leftover ice cream and it came out really hard. Nothing a little time sitting on the counter can't fix but just a heads up! 
 
My mind is rolling with more homemade dairy-free ice cream ideas! Next up.. Toasted Marshmallow and then probably Blackberry!
