Easy Dairy Free Coconut Ice Cream (no ice cream maker)

Ok technically this isn’t ice cream as it contains no cream at all but I promise you this super easy treat is amazing. If you are familiar with using coconut milk you will understand this is not a low fat dessert.  However, it is full of “good” fat.  It also uses very little sugar (or almost none if you use Splenda like I do).

One note – don’t complete the last step until you are ready to serve because it melts much quicker than regular ice cream.

Ingredients:

Directions:

I recommend putting your can of coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours or over night.  This isn’t essential but it will speed up the freezing process.

Pour the coconut milk, vanilla and sugar into a mixing bowl.  Stir until combined.

Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet that is lined with a baking mat or parchment or waxed paper. Spread on the cookie sheet.

Place in the freezer for a couple of hours until completely frozen.

Remove from freezer, break the frozen coconut mixture into pieces and place in a blender or small food processor.

Blend until smooth.  This will not get “ice cream” smooth but more like a nice thick slush.

Serve immediately.

    Yes. I just used a hashtag in my comment. This looks delish!!  Let's add some pineapple and make it a pina colada ice cream! Drooling now.

    I think that I'd just eat the frozen coconut pieces and call it a day. I wonder if you could drizzle them in dark chocolate. Yum!
