Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream Recipe

This fresh-churned coconut milk ice cream is rich in wholesome fats, collagen replenishing copper plus manganese, phosphorous, iron, magnesium, selenium and more.

It has a soft-serve consistency that kids – and adults – love, so go ahead and indulge. Let your mind wander back to hot summer days by the pool, or lazy afternoons in the hammock with a soft breeze, sun-dappled light and a good book.

Oh and as a bonus your kids just might start introducing you to random strangers with the phrase “This is my mommy. She makes ICE CREAM!” So yeah, there’s that. 🙂

Although it’s delicious on its own, it’s also super yummy with homemade magic shell, dairy-free caramel sauce, or chocolate ganache and chopped nuts.
