coconut milk ice cream or popsicles- scd compliant

Recipe by
Seattle, WA

So far this is my kid’s & my favorite SCD coconut ice-cream recipe, after trying things numerous ways. Great compliment to warm crustless peach cobbler or pumpkin pie! I’ve tried recipes with just egg yolks (you would need to double the recipe and use 3 yolks), but I find just using the whole egg just as tasty, and less fiddly. Note: I have not had as much luck using coconut cream instead of coconut milk. It needs the higher water ratio for it not to form clumps when being churned into ice-cream.

How To Make coconut milk ice cream or popsicles- scd compliant

  • 1
    Empty coconut milk into a saucepan. Add honey, then whisk in the egg. Once this is done, turn on the heat & warm while whisking. Once it is hot, but not boiling, remove from heat.

    Either pour in silicone ice cube molds for mini popsicles (we like star-shaped ones for fun), or churn mixture in an ice cream maker. Or, freeze half in ice cube molds and chill half in fridge, then blend together in a high powered blender, for a soft-serve consistency similar to what an ice-cream maker procuces. The popsicle route will have a creamy layer on top and a more ice-y layer on the bottom. When using an ice-cube sized mold, it’s easy for your bites to contain both layers, so we find it particularly appealing to use our star-shaped ice cube molds for this reason. In a rush, we have also just poured it straight into a shallow container to freeze, but then you need to let it sit on the counter a bit to be able to scoop/dig some out.
