So summer is here and the sun is out (for the moment). So get outside and top up your vitamin D! We also want to enjoy fabulous summer treats like ice cream. However shop bought ice cream can be full of nasties like refined sugar and chemicals. So why not make your own, it is really quick and easy. For a delicious coconut ice cream you need:



2 Cans coconut milk (stored in the fridge overnight)

Some unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey (optional)

Flaked Almonds



To make:



Take your refrigerated coconut milk and scoop out the creamy layer (Refrigeration causes the cream and milk to separate so remove the watery milk - you can use the milk in smoothies or other recipes so you don't waste it)



Add your coconut flakes and maple syrup/honey to the creamy coconut and mix together.



If you have an ice cream maker then add your mix and leave for 25 minutes (or follow instructions for your machine), if you don't then blend and freeze, stirring frequently or reblend after freezing to remove ice crystals.



Toast some almond flakes (with a little maple or honey if you like) and sprinkle on top and serve!
