This recipe isn’t full of sugar, you dont need a machine and you and your kids will love it! If you are in Melbourne or somewhere else sunny this weekend enjoy these without the guilt… if you aren’t (as I know about half of you are in the northern hemisphere) either rug up and put a good movie on and enjoy anyway or…. save this recipe page for in 6 months time! I hope you enjoy…
You can mix and match by adding fruits to this… but start off as is and take it from there!
VANILLA COCONUT ICE CREAM
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 can coconut milk (or cream)
a vanilla pod or some vanilla essence or cacao nibs work well too (or choc chips – YUM!)
WHAT TO DO:
Freeze the coconut milk or cream over night or for most of the day (you can pop in freezer in the morning for a late arvo snack) – you want to do this in a thin layer so you can pop into ice cube trays or even on a thin layer of parchment on a baking tray – dont do it in a huge chunk or it will be impossible to blend (I have tried!)
When you are ready take it out of the freezer and blend til smooth in a food processor (you may need to scrape edges a few times to get it smooth)
Scrape in the vanilla seeds or other yummies you are putting in and blend a bit more
Serve. This is really yum with frozen berries, mango, banana blended in too.
