Conversation Heart Ice Cream

Thank you for sharing!

Are you planning that fantastic dinner date night since you have kids like me where you stay in and watch movies? Well, I have just the thing to pair with your steaks. Maybe your doing Chinese or chicken with vegetables. Either way I have the best Valentine’s Day ice cream you can serve up. This is great for a dinner date. It is also fantastic for Valentine’s fun for the entire family.

This ice cream is dairy free. It’s made with coconut milk. It must be made at least two days in advance. The coconut milk needs to sit overnight in the fridge in order for it to separate. Once it’s sat over night you can strain off the liquid. Just reserve all the white coconut goodness. A mixer like a Kitchen aid works best for this but even a handy old hand mixer can do the trick. It just might take a bit longer.

Then it’s just a freeze all day or overnight. I like to make it two days ahead just so I know it’s ready. I also keep my coconut milk in the fridge, because I buy it often for ice cream. Doesn’t hurt ya’ll to keep a can or two ready for ice cream.
