Vanilla Ice Cream

After our football season ended so tragically last weekend, The Man and I consoled ourselves with this vanilla ice cream. Granted, I had planned for this to be a celebration treat. But. So it goes.

Vanilla Ice Cream

1 can coconut milk

1/4 c honey

3 vanilla beans

Makes enough for four, or just two football-depressed people.

  1. Split the vanilla beans down the center with a sharp knife. Scrape out the goodness.
  2. Put the vanilla beans, vanilla paste, honey, and coconut milk in a saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and let the mixture sit for several hours so the coconut milk is flavored with the vanilla.
  4. Pour into the canister of your ice cream maker and process.

Note to self: This makes a really rich and coconut-y/vanilla-y ice cream that is awesome. In the past, I always put 1/3 c of honey in my coconut milk ice creams, but since I’ve been cutting back on honey, fruit, and carbs, 1/4 c of honey in this was just fine.
