Coconut Ice-Cream

low fodmap for lifeMy son is dairy intolerant, so if I am making ice-cream I often make it with quality coconut milk. The recipe is similar to my lactose-free Vanilla Ice-Cream, except that I usually add a little dairy-free milk as the coconut is very rich on its own.

Coconut Ice-Cream

1/2 cup rice malt syrup

800ml coconut milk (2 cans of full fat coconut milk)

100ml dairy-free milk (almond or rice milk are good options)

1-2  teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Combine all the ingredients in a jug or bowl with a spout. Using electric beaters, beat the coconut mixture until the rice malt syrup completely dissolves, about 3 minutes.

2. Pour the coconut mixture into an ice-cream maker and allow it churn until the ice-cream is thick and creamy – my machine takes about 30 minutes. Pour into an air-tight container and store in the freezer. The ice-cream can freeze quite hard, so I try to make it a couple of hours before I intend to use it so that it is still soft enough to serve easily.

This ice-cream is delicious on its own or with your favourite toppings. I also serve it with home-made gluten-free brownies and orange and almond cake.

Enjoy!

    • Hi Ingrid,
      About 100ml would be one scoop, so you could try this to see if this upsets you. Otherwise I could suggest substituting some of the almond milk for coconut milk. It won’t be as creamy but it would still be delicious!

        If i want to substitute some of the coconut milk for almond milk, how much almond milk would you recommend to use, so it won’t be too floating, but still better for the stomach ?

    • Hi Ingrid,
      Sorry for taking so long to get back to you! You could try up to half almond, half coconut milk, but note that the more almond milk the more “icy” it will be, but if you eat it fresh I am sure it will still be delicious.

    • Hi Cindy,
      Sugar (which is made of of half sucrose, half fructose) is OK for fodmaps. It is when fructose is in excess of sucrose that we have issues, which is why a lot of fruits are high fodmaps. I personally do my best to limit sugar for health reasons!
