Looking for a refreshing, healthy dessert? Believe it or not, you don’t have to dive into a tub of sugary, store bought ice cream! Make your own creamy, soft-serve style ice cream using just three ingredients: coconut milk, frozen fruit, and honey.
With a texture like cream, no additives or refined ingredients, coconut milk is the perfect alternative to heavy creams. If you want to lower the quantity of fat in your ice cream, choose a low fat coconut milk. Add honey to sweeten the dish without resorting to highly processed and refined sugars. Add mango, or any other antioxidant-rich fruit, and you’ve dosed your ice cream with phytonutrients, fibre, vitamins, and minerals not found in traditionally made frozen desserts.
The only thing that could top this delicious ice cream is a homemade Raw Raspberry-Chia Sauce and a little drizzle of fresh passion fruit!
1 cup canned Coconut Milk (full-fat recommended)
3 cups organic diced mango, frozen
3 tablespoons honey
Optional RASPBERRY SAUCE:
1/3 cup raspberries
3 tablespoons honey, optional pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon chia
In a hi-speed blender or large food processor, blend together coconut milk, frozen mango, and honey until the texture of soft-serve ice cream. Scoop ice cream into serving dishes.
Optional Sauce: Puree ingredients for the raspberry sauce in a small food processor.
Tip: If using a hi-speed blender, use the tamper that comes with it for a creamier consistency.
