Sweet Black Cherry Coconut Ice Cream

>> Tuesday, March 15, 2011

This is a tasty alternative to traditional ice cream. It is dairy free, egg free, gluten free, sugar free, nut free, but definitely not flavor free!

Sweet Black Cherry Coconut Ice Cream

2 cans full fat coconut milk

2 cups of frozen sweet black cherries ( no added sugar)

1/2 cup of honey or agave

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 TBS unsweetened coconut ( optional)

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth and creamy. Immediately pour into your ice cream maker. I have the Cuisinart soft serve machine and it works great. Let the ice cream mix for about 20 minutes. I ate some at this stage, I was too anxious to wait. Place the remaining ice cream in the freezer and let it set up for about 1.5 hours.

Scoop and enjoy, guilt free!

I think I might try this again but sub the vanilla extract for almond. That just came to me as I was typing. Hmmm... so many ideas so little time. I am still working on a gluten free, sugar free vegan cupcake. you will be the first to know when I have mastered the challenge successfully!
