You will need an ice cream maker for this one, which I think is a very wise investment for ice cream lovers who can’t have dairy or soy. Coconut milk ice cream is the best-tasting  non-dairy ice cream I have found and costs about $7 per pint in the store.  


1 can coconut milk

1/4 cup cane sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla or coconut extract

Optional: 1/4 vanilla bean, chopped finely


Dissolve the sugar in the coconut milk. Stir in the extract and chopped vanilla bean. Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Serves 4 (about 2 cups).
