Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Simple Paleo & Gluten Free Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Simple Paleo & Gluten Free Coconut Milk Ice Cream

My first attempt at coconut milk ice-cream failed. Well, more like the timing was off.  My mom was in town & I hosted dinner. I wanted to try out my ice-cream maker (still boxed up, unopened, since Christmas).  I went ahead and mixed up my ingredients. But when I pulled out the ice-cream maker a few hours before dinner I read the instructions and realized that the base needed to be frozen which takes up to 22 hours! While we had to make a last minute Whole Foods trip to buy coconut ice-cream for the dinner party, the ice-cream I did make was so yummy! Even if it was a day late….

Here's the recipe. Learn from my mistake and read the instructions for your ice-cream maker. You typically have to freeze the base for several hours (6-22). But the prep itself is soooo easy, you'll wonder why you ever buy the pre-made stuff. 

Coconut Milk Ice Cream

3 cans full fat coconut milk
~1/2c honey (increase for sweeter ice-cream) 
1T vanilla extract*

Whisk ingredients together and freeze according to ice-cream maker instructions. 

This is a great base recipe. I love it with fresh fruit on top. I plan to try adding cookie dough :). 

*Always read the ingredients on vanilla extract, it should only be alcohol & vanilla, avoid added sugars and caramel color.


Need an ice-cream maker? Here's the one I use (from Amazon). 

Don't have an ice cream maker? Try out my banana ice cream recipe (only equipment required is a blender).
