There are a lot of folks out there who love ice-cream but not the effects the dairy content can have on them. This dairy free coconut and almond ice-cream is the answer to that dessert dilemma.
Dairy Free Coconut and Almond Ice-cream
This is the perfect summer dessert for those who just can’t go the whole milk/cream route, are cutting back on refined sugar but still want their fix of summer time ice-cream. It is so tasty even those who aren’t on any sort of food restriction will love it.
Dairy free ice-cream
Your flavour here in this dairy free coconut and almond ice-cream lies in the toasting of the coconut and flaked almonds. This brings out their flavour and gives this ice-cream it’s delightfully nutty flavour.
Sugar free too
There is no refined sugar in this recipe, the sweetness comes from the medjool dates and banana with a bit of sweetness from the coconut milk.
Adding in the spiciness of cinnamon and vanilla and a pinch of sea salt really ramps up those flavours and makes this a delightful summer time treat that is not too naughty at all!
