Chocolate + Coconut = SMILE….


Hello Loves! The GF Gidget household has been decidedly dearth of desserts as of late. I honestly hadn’t noticed until GF Guy’s forlorn face emerged from our freezer. We were completely out of coconut milk ice cream, muffins, quick breads,…. You get the picture. (I also think he has become a bit spoiled! hahaha) To make up for my dessert provider fail, I decided to create a new coconut milk ice cream flavor for him.

GF Guy like his ice cream very frozen (not soft serve), so I woke up early to make it so it would be frozen by dinner time. The ice cream flavor du jour turned out to be delicious! GF Guy was happy and all is now right in the world!

Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Ingredients:
– 2 cans Coconut Milk, full fat
– 3/4 cup Sugar
– 2 teaspoons Peppermint Extract
– 1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
– 1/4 teaspoon Xanthum Gum
– 1/2 cup Enjoy Life, Dairy Free Chocolate Chips

Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a blender.
Place blender canister in the freezer for about 1 hour.
Re-blend about 30 seconds and pour into ice cream maker.
Process about 20 minutes.
Pour in chocolate chips.
Process 5 more minutes.
Pour ice cream into a freezer safe container and allow to harden to desired consistency.

In honor of my birthday I have decided to ask birthday questions this week.
Birthday Question “du jour”: What is the best birthday gift you have ever received?

The best one I can remember was getting my car detailed. I HATE, LOATHE, AND DESPISE cleaning my car. I was so happy to have someone else do it! hahaha

  4. Would one of you try this? I no longer have a working ice cream maker. I want someone to use HEMP milk and Coconut milk mixed together. Hemp is very creamy. I tried TEMPT ice cream and it is delicious.Please let me know how it turns out while I look for another maker.
