Tonight I finally got around to making the “Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream” from Growing Up Paleo. Here is the Link: http://www.growinguppaleo.com/2011/05/coconut-milk-chocolate-ice-cream/
Three simple ingredients. Coconut milk, chocolate bar, vanilla. I used some leftover dark chocolate bunny from Easter. Used the Cuisinart ice cream maker I use about three times a year. All of the girls loved it and so did my husband Mike. Emma said “Will you make this again, Mommy?” Super easy, if you have remembered to keep the ice cream maker vessel in the freezer so it is frozen when you need it.
I melted the chocolate in the microwave, used about 2-3 ozs. of that. The can of coconut milk held 14 ozs (250 calories total). I am guessing that the recipe made about 2-3 cups of ice cream…enough for 6 normal servings.
There were lots of good ideas for spicing up the chips on the smitten kitchen comments sections…cumin, smoked paprika, vinegar. I was thinking maybe pickle juice for a dill pickle flavored kale chip. hmm….mmm. When we finish the chips, we will have to use the crumbs to flavor homemade popcorn.
