Can there be anything simpler than this three ingredients, gluten free, vegan, no churn Coconut Milk and Plum Ice Cream flavored with luscious, juicy, sweet and tangy plums. Well there can be; eating it (chuckles…). So we have been trying to eat healthy recently and you would know with the food blog eating healthy becomes little tricky. I itch to cook every thing in the world but you would agree not a lot of interesting recipes fall in very healthy category. It takes some thought, trials and errors to make regular recipes healthy.
That is how I made this very easy but no guilt ice cream. Made with just three ingredients, this ice cream is easy, healthy and no less the regular one. Coconut milk has been my recent love. I have realized how amazingly well it goes with everything. Sweet and creamy coconut milk is just incredible. So that is how I am using coconut milk for this ice cream.
Also, if you are making this ice cream quickly roast some plums and peaches with vanilla and mint and serve with it. And just like this this simple ice cream will become a crowd pleasing dessert. Wanna see how? see here ‘Roasted Peaches and Plums with Coconut Cream Ice Cream’.
I have used plums, you can use any other fruit that you like. I think banana, peaches or any other fruit will go good. I also like plums because it adds a little tanginess in this creamy ice cream. I prefer not to blend plums and add the lumpy paste in coconut milk so I get fruits in my ice cream bite.
So enjoy every scoop of this lush, creamy and tangy ice cream and shout out loud ‘Healthy’! Ain’t that colour so pretty. I will eat any dessert if it is pink ;). Well I said, it’s easy to make and I mean it. Check out for yourself.
- 3 cups coconut milk
- 1 cup chopped plums
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Chop the plums. Put them on low flame and add brown sugar. You can also replace sugar with honey.
- Once plums become soft, you can put them in blender to make a smooth paste or use just like that. I used the lumpy paste as I like fruit bites in my ice cream.
- Chill a mixing bowl in refrigerator, pour coconut milk into it. With the help of blender whip it until it becomes smooth and light.
- Add plum paste and vanilla extract. Blend some more.
- Transfer into a chilled, parchment lined container. Cover with cling film and put it in freezer to settle.
- I left it overnight and became nice and smooth in for morning.
- I served with some almonds.
