Back a few weeks ago I was unable to eat all forms of sweets: sugar, brown sugar, fructose, honey, agave syrup, milk, and even fruit. Luckily, those terrible4 weeks are over. You have no idea how sweet coconut milk tastes when you haven’t had one sweet piece of food for 4 weeks!
Anyways, it was a really hot summer day and I was craving ice cream. Unable to drink milk at the time, I took a nice thick and tasty coconut milk that I get here out of Thailand called Aroy-D and mixed it with rice milk to make a nice and “sweet” ice cream for myself. I made it on 2 occasions, once with cocoa powder and once without. I prefer the chocolate-free version. Ideally, it would taste better with sugar, so add to your liking if you are not on a restricted diet such as a candida diet. This is also a great base for a vegetarian or vegan ice cream.
1 Cup Aroy-D Coconut Milk
1 Cup Rice Milk
1 teaspoon Almond extract (use an all natural sugar free kind – available at Central Market)
1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder (optional)
Chill all ingredients. Mix together in a bowl or measuring cup and then pour into an ice cream maker and churn. When done, remove and store in the freezer.
Makes 2-4 servings.
