A few days ago, I discovered this ice cream recipe from Cheeseslave. It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! It’s sure to become a staple in our home this summer.

 

Here’s the original recipe:

1 can (14 oz) coconut milk
2 TBS organic cocoa powder
2 TBS raw honey
1 very ripe banana

Throw everything in a food processor or a blender and mix well. Transfer to ice cream maker and run for about 45 minutes.

 

I made 1.5 batches with one can of coconut milk and about 8oz of raw milk, three heaping TBS of cocoa 3TBS of honey, 1.5 bananas and a tsp. of vanilla. Next time I will add more vanilla.

It is so delicious and the texture is fantastic. Because coconut milk is solid when cold, it makes for a very creamy ice cream that has a lot more body than homemade ice cream made with milk and cream.

I’m looking forward to experimenting with different flavor combinations. Mixed berries to start.
