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.
I realize the variations are endless when it comes to ice cream. I am only throwing out there the ones I have personally made and devoured. I am confident that ice cream lovers everywhere will chime in with their favorite flavors.
