Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sunday


I have a simple ice cream recipe for your ice cream machine.
 This is the machine I have http://www.cuisinart.com/products/ice_cream/ice-21.html

VANILLA ICE CREAM ( for the ice cream maker)
   2 cans full fat coconut milk
   1/4 cup honey
   1 tsp vanilla bean powder (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
blend all the ingredients in the blender until fully incorporated.  Pour into your ice cream machine while the machine is on and mixing otherwise the ice cream will freeze to the side right away.  This only takes about 10 min or less.  When it looks really creamy.....it's done!
TOTAL CARB COUNT = 70g

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM ( for the ice cream maker)
  2 cans full fat coconut milk
   1/4 cup honey
   1/4 cup cocoa powder
   1 tsp vanilla bean powder (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
blend all the ingredients in the blender until fully incorporated.  Pour into your ice cream machine while the machine is on and mixing otherwise the ice cream will freeze to the side right away.  This only takes about 10 min or less.  When it looks really creamy.....it's done!
 TOTAL CARB COUNT = 82g

I have done some posts in the past on ice cream.  These recipes don't need an ice cream maker.  Here are some links to the recipes:
low-carbohydrate vanilla ice cream



dairy-free chocolate banana ice cream



fruit ice cream / sorbet
Grandma was talking about ice cream sundays and the kids were wondering what that was all about.So I whipped up my own healthy version of the ice cream sunday.

You could probably melt some dairy-free chocolate chips and pour that over the sunday for a "hard shell" chocolate topping. There are any number of ice cream flavor combinations.  You could make an all fruit melody.
 I simply made all the ice creams and stashed them in the freezer for about an hour so they firmed up pretty well.  If they stay in the freezer too long you will have to thaw the ice cream out on the counter for awhile. I have here the strawberry yogurt ice cream made of just frozen strawberries and some coconut yogurt.  Next I have the coconut vanilla ice cream made in the ice cream maker.  Last I have the chocolate banana ice cream made mostly of frozen bananas and cocoa powder.   Pretty healthy stuff!

SUCCESS! They are eating fruit, pro-biotic enriched yogurt, coconut milk and some chocolate.  Have some more I say..........
How about making layer upon layer in a GF ice cream cone?


You can even make creamsicles with layered flavors!  The homemade ice cream is pretty soft and that makes it easy to pack into the popsicle mold.
