That’s right, Quick Papaya Coconut No Churn Ice Cream! Guess what? This ice cream has no cream or eggs and you don’t need an ice cream maker! This is a quick and easy recipe that happens to be vegan!
It has been the hottest and most humid week here in New York. I had a papaya in the fridge that needed to be used and an abundance of coconut milk so I said why not make ice cream! I love ice cream, seriously love it but if I ate it every day, my waist would hate me and I’m trying to stay out of my fat pants! I also had a fantastic time eating some amazing BBQ last week so I wanted a lighter option to my ice cream and I really don’t want to break out those fat pants!
Oh my, this was a great choice for me! My family and I loved the flavor of the ice cream. So super easy and you don’t need an ice cream maker! I simply puree the papaya, combine the puree with light coconut milk, shredded coconut, and agave! Pop it in the freezer for about 2 hours then I blend the ice cream one more time to get out the ice that forms and smooth the ice cream. I toasted some almonds for a topping! I can only say its Yum!
