Lusciously Lime Dairy Free Ice Cream
Fresh-squeezed lime juice and zest is imperative for the best flavor! The bottled lime juice you can buy just isn't the same. // THM:S, low carb, sugar free, gluten/egg/dairy/nut free (make sure to use noncontaminated ingredients)
Serves: 4
  • 1 13.5-oz. can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or carton coconut milk for a nut free version)
  • 1 T vegetable glycerin*
  • 6 T fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½-1 tsp. fresh lime zest**
  • 7 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.)
  • ⅛ tsp. salt, slightly rounded
  • 1 drop green food coloring (optional)
  • 1 drop yellow food coloring (optional)
  • 1 tsp. glucomannan
  1. Blend all the ingredients together until smooth, then churn in an automatic ice cream churn according to manufacturer's directions. Serve immediately or freeze a little longer in your freezer to firm it up, if desired. Yields 4 generous servings.
  2. Leftovers will freeze hard in your freezer, but they'll soften right up to a great texture if you transfer them to your refrigerator 3 hours before serving. Alternately you can let the leftovers sit out on the counter for 20-30 minutes to soften up.
*I have not tried making this ice cream without vegetable glycerin, and I really recommend using the glycerin for best texture. The glycerin also helps keep the ice cream from sticking to the sides of the ice cream maker (ice cream made with coconut milk tends to do this even more than regular ice cream, I've found). I purchase vegetable glycerin off of Amazon (link below), or you can find it at some local cake decorating stores. Whole Foods carries NOW brand's food grade vegetable glycerin in its skincare section.
**Please use as much lime zest as you like. I prefer 1 tsp., but my mom thought it was "too zesty", so adjust to your personal preference.
Most people with nut allergies can handle coconut just fine, but check with your doctor first to make sure.
