Do you ever have those days where you spend the day doing random things and you don’t realize time went by SUPER fast?
Today flew by. I woke up late, I think it was 9:00am. Had pie and cucumbers for breakfast (not together).
Went for a fantastic 5.5 mile run.
Hung out with this lady
Basically we were ridiculous (as we usually are). We went by Six Mile Creek Vineyard for Sara to pick up some wine.
We also made ice cream (I’ll tell you about that one later in the week) but first let me tell you about this stuff I made at some point last week.
Honey Coconut White Chocolate Chip Ice “Cream”
2 cans of coconut milk**
1/2 cup honey*
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut
In a bowl mix together the honey and coconut milk. Chill for a few minutes in the freezer or in the fridge for a few hours. Pour into your ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions. In the last 5 minutes of turning, drop in the white chocolate chips and shredded coconut. Freeze for a few hours in a container before serving.
**I used one can of full fat coconut milk and one of light coconut milk. You can also use two cans of full fat, which will make it taste even more delicious and the texture will be creamier. I don’t suggest using two light cans. I tried that and it turned out too icey.
*To veganify use agave nectar instead and vegan white chocolate chips.
Lovely and (almost) Dairy Free!
It also happened to go perfectly with the champagne brownies I made a few days ago, which by the way turn into full on FUDGE once chilled.
All sorts of amazing.
I need to give Slick Rick back his ice cream maker, ASAP! There CANNOT be this much ice cream in my freezer!
What was the highlight of your weekend? I had a dinner party last night, super fun. Stay tuned for that!

That sounds yummy! What brand of white chocolate chips do you use that doesn’t have dairy in it?
That’s a good point. I forgot about the white chocolate chips. Those were not dairy free but I know Pangea makes some that are dairy free ( http://www.veganstore.com/809.html). I’ve also seen them in the bulk food section of my local grocery co-op.
You’re making me think I need an ice cream maker. I don’t, I don’t, I don’t! (maybe.)
Looks delicious, Karla – Love the flavors. I was trying to find a fun ice cream flavor at the store today and everything just seemed so inferior…I think this should have been in the aisle instead 😛
And blogging rut?! I always love reading what you have to say, so no worries there!!
Yum, I love making ice cream with coconut milk. I have a few recipes on my blog and have a couple more to come! Love it!
I have yet to make my own ice cream! I think I’m going to borrow my Mom’s – this sounds SO good and (kind of easy?)!
Definitely super easy to make!
