"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


"Chaconut" Ice Cream!

 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!


This 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)



    First 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!


    1. Maybe try putting a few fresh cherries in to make Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream that most people love. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays Blog Hop. Will pin.

      1. Oh that would be good ~ Thanks Marla!

    2. Mmm chocolate real food. I really want an ice cream maker. Thanks for sharing. Hello from Real Food Fridays.

      1. :) Oh! You can totally make ice cream without an ice cream machine! I once actually won a contest at the fair for my ice cream recipe in a "kick the can" contest! That's another neat thing about Just Making Ice Cream ~ she explains 5 ways to make ice cream without an ice cream maker! Thanks for leaving a comment :)

      2. Here! Found a link for you Melissa! http://just-making-noise.blogspot.com/2014/04/5-ways-i-can-help-you-make-fast.html :D

    3. What a gorgeous, wholesome ice cream! It sounds absolutely scrumptious. Choconut is such a fantastic idea for a flavour! Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe with us at the Hearth and Soul hop. Will be pinning and sharing.

      1. :D Thanks! I can't take all the credit, since I was inspired by Just Making Ice Cream, but I LOVE it! THe blending everything together is what gives it its uniqueness and texture. :) Enjoy!!

    4. Looks so simple and delicious! Thank you so much for linking up at Tasty Tuesday! Your recipe has been pinned to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board! Please join us again this week!

    5. Delicious! I like the idea of the grounded chocolate bar for texture... I will have to give this a go :) Thanks for linking up with the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week. I do hope you join us again this week ;)

      1. :) It's so yummy! Also, using dried coconut gives it texture too! Just don't blend it too strongly or it'll turn into Whipped Nut Cream. ;) I keep running out of time/posts to link up, but it's a good encourager to keep posting. Thanks!
