3 Ingredient Coconut Milk Ice Cream

My mom, sister, and I all like to hang out.  And, in the summer, hanging out would often involve a bowl of ice cream.  The only trouble is, as the years have worn on, regular ice cream doesn't agree with all of us anymore.  So when I learned that you can make ice cream out of coconut milk instead, I was all about it.

Three ingredients.  That is all it takes to make cool, creamy, dairy free ice cream.  There are about a thousand ways you can make this coconut milk ice cream your own.  Add in brown sugar and pineapple for a bit of a piña colada flavor.  Or maybe some roasted strawberries are more your style.  No matter which way you churn it, your belly will thank you.

Coconut Milk Ice Cream

  • 3 cups Coconut Cream (you can use full fat coconut milk if you can't find coconut cream)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, stir together 1 1/2 cups coconut cream and granulated sugar until sugar is fully dissolved.  

Remove from heat.  Pour hot sugar/cream mixture into a medium bowl.  Add in remaining coconut cream and vanilla extract.  Refrigerate 4-5 hours or overnight.

The next day, churn according to your ice cream makers directions.  Freeze for 2-3 hours until solid.  Enjoy.
