Coconut Honey Ice Cream

Coconut Honey Ice Cream

O.M.G. I think I just died and went to coconut heaven.

I think I am going to live in the container of this ice cream. Yeah, sure, it will be cold, but I’ll get over it. I’ll wear a parka.

This ice cream doesn’t contain any egg yolks or cream so I don’t know if it technically qualifies as ice cream since you don’t have to make a custard, but skipping that process makes this so much easier to prepare. It is so light and creamy with a touch of sweetness from the honey. It’s almost like frozen whipped cream. And it’s dairy-free!

Heaven.

I used one can of light coconut milk and a can of regular coconut milk to cut the fat down, but if you want it to be a thicker and creamier consistency, then use two cans of regular coconut milk. You can try using two cans of light coconut milk, but the ice cream might not be as creamy.
