This quick and easy coconut ice cream is as simple as open, pour, stir, blend, chill, churn and devour. As long as you can use a can opener, you can be chowing down on fresh vegan coconut ice cream in a matter of hours.
Perfect for those of you who have written to me bemoaning the fact that you will never crack open a coconut! The only trouble with this ice cream is learning how to stop at one scoop! It is absolutely delicious.
-2 cans of organic full-fat coconut milk

How to make:
1. Chill the coconut milk cans in the fridge overnight.
