Coconut milk has a fat content (the good fats, according to scientists) that gives coconut milk ice cream a mouth feel that is very similar to dairy ice cream.
The flavors other than vanilla or plain chocolate chip don’t taste coconuty. It is MUCH better than any commercial nondairy ice cream I have found. And sooo easy!
* 2 14oz cans coconut milk * 1 tsp vanilla * 1/4 tsp xanthan or guar gum * 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup cocoa * 1/4 cup instant coffee, add 1/4 cup sugar to a total of 1c sugar * 1/2-1 cup fruit - peaches work really well * 1/2 cup coconut * 1/2+ cup chocolate chips
Mix in blender, add to ice cream maker, follow directions. (for coconut or chocolate chips, add at end of ice cream maker mixing)
