    Coconut Milk Ice Cream

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone use the coconut ice cream recipe from the primal cookbook? Is it creamy? Do you use the maple syrup? If you have a 2 quart mixer do you just double all ingredients? Any suggestions before I jump into this?

    So nobody active online today has made this recipe from the cookbook? I have tried searching through the threads with no luck.

    Funny thing is-- I got an ice cream maker for mothers day & completely forgot about the recipe in the book.

    I've made ice cream with coconut milk, HWC, eggs, vanilla, and sea salt. Very tasty.
    Have not used the recipe in the book.

    If you want your ice cream to be scoopable, I wouldn't suggest skipping the maple syrup. But if you like it soft-serve, it might be ok to skip the maple syrup. Just when you freeze it, it'll be harder because the sugar acts like anti-freeze.

    I just bought an ice cream maker and I made my first batch with heavy whipping cream and coconut milk. Yes, it gets hard as a rock in the freezer, but there are ways around it. I'm set on using stevia instead of sugar, so that's a reason why. Next time, I'm just adding more alcohol instead. A website I read recommends 3 tablespoons of alcohol per pint of ice cream to act as antifreeze, so I'll use a mixture of rum and vodka until I get the science down. I just used vanilla extract and a teaspoon of rum last time and it wasn't nearly enough.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    We make our own ice cream, we use heavy cream, stevia, vanilla extract and cocoa powder. I think it tastes great, I tried doing it with coconut milk but it was gross so we use cream. We just mix it all in a bowl and put in freezer for 20 or so min, stir, another 20-40 min in the freezer and its ready to be eaten, the top is frozen but the center is still slightly not so when we mix it up it makes it back into soft serve. I have also put it in those little make your own Popsicle things and it comes out like a fudgesicle.

    I have ordered an ice cream maker and I guess I will just start experimenting. I know enough about myself to know ice cream will have to be limited to a weekend treat. But we need some treats, right?

    Well, I have never made primal ice cream, but am game to try. Used to make a lot of ice cream in the past, but now I can't do milk anymore so that is out. I think maple syrup is okay, but realize that the comment about alcohol is absolutely true. I don't add drinking alcohol to my ice cream, but I do add vanilla extract and raw eggs.....

    Let me know about the coconut ice cream, I am down to try some! Is this the newest cookbook the quick primal cookbook?
