Coconut Milk Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

2-400 ml cans coconut milk (Place your milk in the fridge overnight)

2 c. strawberries plus 1/2 c.

1/2 c.  honey (or desired sweetener)

2 tsp. vanilla

Puree all ingredients in food processor. Then blend mixture in frozen ice cream maker ** for twenty minutes. Just before time is up add an additional 1/2 c. of cup up fruit.Will be consistency of soft ice cream.  For convenience, I put into small individual containers and freeze. When you want to eat the ice cream, take a container out of the freezer for 10-15 minutes to soften. Why not top your ice cream with Whipped Coconut Cream


**If you don’t have an ice cream maker put bowl of mixture into the freezer and stir every thirty minutes for a few hours.
