Vanilla Coconut Ice

It’s been hot. I haven’t been baking. Except those darn coco-meal cookies that I can’t get quite right even after 5 batches.

My food has been boring. Some might even say vanilla.

Except sometimes vanilla is good.

    This looks amazing Deanna! A perfect treat to share with my vegan friends. =D

  2. I’m all about vegan ice cream! I love that it’s so easy to make and you can adjust it after mixing and before freezing. :-) This recipe sounds terrific, Deanna!

    Reblogged this on threechickstalkingaboutfood and commented:
    I’m really tempted to make this. Not only is it vegan but also has a low glycemic index value. I don’t think I would use stevia though; I’ll probably use sucanat, turbinado or agave due to their flavor profiles. This recipe would also make a great base for all sorts of more gourmet ice cream flavor combinations.
