Coconut Milk Ice Cream in the ice cream maker
Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Mix together 5 cups coconut milk (I use 3 cans), 2 cups other milk (I use original rice milk), 2 cups sugar & 2 tsp vanilla extract. Mix together and refrigerate overnight. Use this mixture and follow your ice cream maker's instructions. In mine, I pour the mixture into the well and then layer ice & rock salt around the outside. Plug it in and leave it until it stops about 45 minutes later. (my dad got me an ice cream maker for $10 on clearance at walmart one time - thanks dad!).
Variations: for chocolate chip, add in chips after mixing in ice cream maker. For mint, substitute approved mint flavoring for vanilla.
Note: I tried using all So Delicious coconut milk from the carton and it was too thin. The canned coconut milk is thicker and gives the ice cream a better consistency. It doesn't taste too much like coconut. You could also mix in frozen fruit or crushed oreo-like cookies at this point I guess, but I've never tried it.
