Smooth and Peachy Coconut Milk Ice Cream

When Spring is getting close and the days are lengthening, I start craving fresh fruity flavors. The beauty of freeze dried fruit is the flavor is intensified, because it is concentrated. So, it is easy to make a fruit forward ice cream or cookie off season. I really like Karen’s Naturals freeze dried fruit. They are organic and contain just fruit, no additives or preservatives. This is a pretty straight forward recipe using just a few quality ingredients to make a smooth and peachy, dairy free, ice cream that tastes fresh, even when peaches are not in season!

This recipe makes enough for four generous servings of ice cream. It is dairy free, gluten free and honey sweetened. The squeeze of fresh lemon juice brightens the ice cream and gives it the perfect tang.

Smooth and Peachy Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Ingredients:

2 Cups of Full Fat Coconut Milk

1 Bag of Just Organic Freeze Dried Peaches (here)

1/2 Cup of Quality Honey (I use local)

2 Tablespoons of Pure Vanilla Extract (use 1/2 teaspoon of  vanilla powder for AIP)

1 Tablespoon of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

1/8 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

Directions: In a high speed blender, puree all the ingredients. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Churn in an ice cream maker. I use this one.

Enjoy! You can store leftover ice cream in the freezer. It is easy to scoop straight from the freezer because of the higher vanilla content. Have a blast of peach before peach season to celebrate the coming of Spring!

A Calorie Is Not Just a Calorie to Your Cells

what-you-fuel-your-body-with-matters

Wishing you all a very healthy New Year! Make a commitment this year to eat more food that will increase your health, and kick the processed foods and food that your body doesn’t thrive on to the curb! Resolve to listen to your body, and if it is achy, lethargic, anxious, tired, sleep deprived, overweight, has brain fog, poor digestion, muscle loss, or skin issues,  make a decision to change that this year. Food feeds your cells which turn over at an incredible rate. What you eat becomes your blood and cells. Once you begin a really good and healthful eating program for the purpose of lifestyle change (not a diet!), poor quality and processed food will no longer taste good to you. It takes times for your taste buds to change, so stick with it longer than a few weeks. I promise you will begin to crave delicious, real food all the time, love it and never look back!

You are so worth it! 🙂
