Vegan Strawberry Swirl Ice Creamhomemade ice cream

YES, it’s safe for vegans to eat and still very delicious! Indulge all you want with the natural sweetness and less guilt. BUT, it might be a bit more complicated, as you’ll need an ice cream machine for it.

Ingredients:
  • Two cans of coconut milk (full fat)
  • Half a cup of agave nectar
  • Quarter teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • Two tablespoons of cornstarch
  • A vanilla bean
  • Two cups of quartered strawberries
  • Quarter cup of natural cane sugar
Procedure

1. Set aside half a can of coconut milk before mixing the rest with agave and salt in a saucepan. Simmer it on the medium-low heat, until the ingredients are smooth and warm. It will take about two minutes.

2. Whisk the half can of coconut milk with cornstarch. Slowly add it to the hot mixture. Scrape the vanilla bean and add it (and the pod) to the mix, too. Cook over medium heat and let it thicken about eight minutes. Do NOT let the mixture boil!

3. Remove from the heat and let it cool on the counter for half an hour. Cover with a plastic wrap and let it chill for about five hours in the fridge.

4. You can make the strawberry sauce while waiting for the mixture to cool. Mash strawberries in a saucepan and add sugar. Let it simmer for five minutes, or when the fruits become juicy. Remove from heat and transfer it to the bowl, letting it cool for half an hour.

5. Blend the strawberry mixture until it has a thick consistency, then leave it first.

6. Using your ice cream machine, churn the coconut ice cream according to the instructions. Once it has the thickened consistency, add the strawberry sauce to your ice cream maker so both ice cream and sauce mix.

7. Once the ice cream is done, put it in a bowl or large pan and put it in the freezer. Leave it for about five hours or overnight, until the ice cream is firm and ready to serve!
