Have you heard? It's National Ice Cream Month! That's right, we have a whole month dedicated to that creamy delicious treat! (Thanks President Reagan!) With that in mind, I'd like to introduce you to my favorite ice cream. It includes 3 of the most delicious things I can think of: chocolate, cream, and coconut!
InspirationsThis recipe was inspired by Marilly Beard. She has a recipe in her e-book Just Making Ice Cream called "Almond Joy." I bought her e-book after looking over a friend's copy; it's the best for homemade ice cream!
I took her recipe, adapted it to fit my ingredients and personal preference, and now I have my own ice cream recipe. The flavor of my creation is delicious, but the name Almond Joy just isn't quite right. Tastes more like "Chaconut". :]
My "Choconut ice cream" recipe:
- chocolate bar (blend into powder first for texture)
- 1 pint organic cream
- 1 pint raw milk
- 2 fresh eggs
- almond butter, to taste
- coconut, shredded
- vanilla extract (extracted into rum for the full flavor
- pink salt (or celtic sea salt would do-some sort of unrefined sea salt if you can)
InstructionsFirst blend everything together till combined.* Then put in Ice Cream maker, following the simple instructions for your machine. Remove and eat when ready!
*For Whipped Nut Cream: First blend the cream and egg whites. Then add in egg yolks and the rest, blending till smooth and creamy.
This ice cream only take me about 30 minutes total to make! It's totally a DIY summer project! :) Fast, easy, and so YUMMY!
Do you like my 3 favorite flavors combo?
