Have you ever been to an event with a bunch of folks who use that event to NOT watch what he/she eats? Anything goes because it’s a special occasion. You may be past this point, and wish you weren’t tempted. In this modern world, it makes sense to try to fit in once in a while. You don’t have to cheat; Fake It! The next time you want to celebrate an occasion, try non-dairy ice cream with coconut milk!
I’ve made great “ice cream” with frozen bananas with coconut milk blended in my awesome Ninja. But, if you have an ice cream maker sitting around, you may want to check out this recipe from Delicious Obsession. I’m betting you can modify some of the extra sugary ingredients.
Dairy-free Vanilla Ice Cream
4 pastured egg yolks
2 cans coconut milk (approx. 3 1/4 cups)
2 tbsp. fine cane sugar (you can whiz it up in a food processor to make it extra fine)
16 drops vanilla cream stevia
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients together with a hand mixer until thoroughly combined. Chill completely, at least 2-4 hours. Prepare according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.
