I realized that in the midst of “Ice-cream Week!” I needed to tip the hat to those who can’t eat dairy. I mean the sorbet does that, sort of, but that’s not actually ice-cream, it’s sorbet, duh. So I decided to demonstrate just how easy it is to swap out the cow milk and make ice-cream with something else.
You can pick your favorite non-dairy beverage (Rice Milk, Soy Milk, Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, etc.) but I went with light coconut milk here because it’s so silky smooth, has some thickness to it, has some healthy fat to make the ice-cream rich, but it’s the light version so it doesn’t have too much fat. It worked out beautifully. My kids don’t like it because I used “dark chocolate” cocoa powder. If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate go with regular cocoa instead and you’ll have regular old chocolate ice-cream. Yum.
