Here is a wonderful recipe that I found on a great website, "Tropical Traditions." I have mentioned this site before, because they feature coconut, a massively healthy ingredient. I only made tiny changes, but essentially the recipe below is directly from Tropical Traditions: 

  • 27 oz full fat coconut milk (In Canada, that's just under two cans, but I used two full cans. . .you can never have too much coconut milk)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 droppers full of liquid stevia.  You can use powdered stevia.  You are going for a sweetness factor equal to approximately 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar. 
  • 2 tablespoons melted grass fed butter, (if you can not get grass-fed, organic is the next best option) 
  • 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract - check the label to ensure there is no sugar in the ingredients
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  Pour the blended mixture into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's directions.  I have an older ice cream maker, so I turned it on and added the mixture about 5 to 10 minutes before we sat down for dinner.  By the time we were ready for dessert, dessert was ready!
