Whenever you crave some frozen treat, make this incredibly simple coconut milk ice cream recipe, which is dairy-free, and requires just 4 ingredients. Its preparation doesn’t even require an ice cream maker, but just the ingredients and little time.

Unlike many other homemade ice cream recipes which demand all kinds of sugary mixtures, this one includes healthy ingredients.

One such ingredient is coconut milk or coconut cream which can be easily found at most health food and grocery stores, as well as online.

Why Coconut?

The reason why people are constantly using coconuts in nearly everything they make is due to their immense health benefits. Coconut milk is made by grating and heating the coconut flesh, and the cream that rises to the top is actually coconut cream.

Coconut contains high amounts of vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6, C, E, dietary fiber, and minerals. Lactose intolerant people can use coconut milk as a substitute that will provide you with the same goodness without causing an upset stomach.

Coconuts are high in fats and calories, but these are good saturated fats (short and medium-chain fatty acids), just like most nuts are. These fatty acids contain compounds that protect our bodies from all sorts of infections and viruses.

That’s why coconut milk is an ideal base for a healthy treat that replaces regular ice cream.

The coconut flavor is prevalent throughout this homemade ice cream, so coconut lovers will definitely love it.
