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.
- Split the vanilla beans down the center with a sharp knife. Scrape out the goodness.
- Put the vanilla beans, vanilla paste, honey, and coconut milk in a saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and let the mixture sit for several hours so the coconut milk is flavored with the vanilla.
- 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.
