Directions
In a high-powered blender \”crush\” almond milk ice cubes.

Add in coconut milk, stevia, and salt and process on high until incorporated and nearly smooth. Finally add in extract and any other add-ins, like fruit, nuts or chocolate and process one more time. Enjoy!

 

Recipe NotesThe VitaMix has a \”damper\” which allows you to push the ice cream down into the blade. If your blender does not have this, you may need to stop periodically while processing to do this with a spoon. Add in your optional ingredients like fruit, nuts, chocolate etc. once the ice cream has come together. There is a fine line with this recipe between \”icy\” and \”creamy\”. It\’s all in the ratio of almond milk cubes to coconut milk. If your ice cream is not creamy, add more coconut milk and take note for the next time to start with one less almond milk ice cube.

    What does the salt do?

    My ice cream keeps coming out in a liquid state. I use only a cup of ice cubes and 1/2 cup of coconut milk.

    Christie, I’m not sure what the salt does.

    Philana, maybe the combination cup of ice cubes and 1/2 cup of coconut milk is what makes it not turn out. It seems that the amount of coconut milk needs to be fairly small compared to the amount of ice cubes.

    Salt adds taste. Salt will bring out the flavor of tbings. With out the salt this will taste bland.
