Coconut Ice Cream Recipe

My family loves the flavor of traditional coconut ice cream but they aren’t always open to trying a healthier version of their favorite recipes, especially when it comes to ice cream. They usually follow the rule of if it’s a healthy version compared to the original, it can’t be that good but I was able to change their minds with this recipe.

I was pretty happy to see them enjoying a dessert that isn’t full of sugar and additives. Usually, when I want to make an SCD recipe for the family, it requires more preparation and time than traditional recipes but this Coconut Ice Cream Recipe is one of the easiest things I have ever made.

I have always followed the rule of, if you can make a healthier version that tastes just as good, go for it. Lucky for us all, I found a healthier version that is super easy to make and tastes better than the original in my opinion!

All you need to make this recipe is a can of coconut milkhoney, an ice cream maker, and some vanilla extract. This recipe is the perfect base recipe for any ice cream if you just add in things like chocolate, vanilla bean, pumpkin or any your favorite flavors.

*Make sure you add in the flavors before freezing! This step should be done when mixing the rest of the ingredients for the best results.
