We are having a 10th birthday party today for A. with 9 little friends. We started out having 3 boys over from a friends’ family. Their sister is getting married this Saturday and their family has so much wedding stuff to do that we thought we’d have the little guys over. So they came… along with their 6 cousins who are in town for the same wedding. No complaints here; we love friends!
Strawberry Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream (non-dairy)
A. requested strawberry ice cream to go with the chocolate cake. I took 3 cups of partially thawed strawberries and lightly chopped them up in the food processor. I transferred them to a bowl and drizzled 2 tablespoons of agave over that and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I added 1/3 of the fruit into the mix for Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream (non-dairy) and put that into the ice cream maker. When the ice cream was all done, I folded in the rest of the fruit using a spatula. Now it is in the freezer to harden for an hour before serving.
The kids keeping coming in and asking me when it will be ready. Soon, soon… 😀

I told my GFCF son that you had posted some coconut milk ice cream recipes — you should have seen his expression! You’ve inspired me!! Later this week, I think I’ll make some.
How long does the ice cream keep in the freezer?
It takes a couple hours to harden completely. We have had some left in the freezer for a week and it is still good. Are you asking about when it gets freezer burn? I’m not sure we’ve had any last that long!
Non-dairy ice creams get quite hard when frozen, so it is best to let them sit out for about 10 minutes before attempting to scoop it into bowls.
Hope this is helpful!
