Watermelon Coconut Sherbet

Watermelon sherbet | Watermelon sorbet | Watermelon ice cream | Watermelon coconut ice creamSo I’m not really sure what to call this watermelon dessert creation. I don’t think it’s a watermelon sorbet, since it contains coconut milk. It’s not as creamy as most of my coconut milk ice creams, so it doesn’t seem quite right to call it watermelon ice cream. So I’m going with watermelon sherbet.

Regardless of what you call it, though, this recipe is delicious. It’s a slightly fancy way to enjoy in-season watermelon–but like all of my ice cream recipes, it’s super simple to pull together.

What if I Don’t Have an Ice Cream Maker?

I get this question from time to time.…

Cinnamon Coconut Ice Cream

Cinnamon Coconut Ice CreamSo Jesse and I have discovered a new ice cream obsession: cinnamon coconut ice cream.

I mixed up a recipe on a whim a couple of weeks ago, and we were both completely blown away by how delicious it was. Jesse declared that it would go great with pumpkin pie, so then I had to make another batch to take to Thanksgiving dinner–where it did, indeed, make a fantastic accompaniment to pumpkin pie.

We scarfed down that batch pretty fast, too, so it was only after I made it a third time that I finally got a chance to take any pictures.…

Chocolate Orange Ice Cream (dairy-free)

Chocolate Orange Ice Cream Dairy-free coconut ice cream sweetened with honey. Tastes like a chocolate orange!
Do you ever buy those chocolate oranges that are sold around Christmas time? I used to LOVE those, but due to various food restrictions I haven’t eaten one in several years. That flavor combination is one I still think of wistfully, however, so the other day I decided to come up with an ice cream version of a chocolate orange.

My efforts did not disappoint: this ice cream is awesome! I really think it tastes exactly like a chocolate orange in ice cream form (well, at least, what I remember a chocolate orange tasting like). If you like the chocolate plus orange flavor combo, you absolutely must try this ice cream.…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Ice Cream (Dairy-free)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream. Dairy-free, honey-sweetened, and full of delicious coconut milk!

I think peanut butter and chocolate is a fantastic flavor combination. Since I no longer eat Reese’s peanut butter cups, one of my favorite ways to enjoy the peanut butter and chocolate combo is in this chocolate peanut butter coconut ice cream recipe. It uses coconut cream (or milk) rather than cow’s cream, so it’s dairy-free and suitable for the GAPS and Paleo diets. Even if you don’t have any dairy restrictions, making coconut ice cream is a delicious and easy way to get more coconut oil into your diet.

I don’t think the coconut flavor is very noticeable in this recipe.…

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (Dairy-free)

This mint chocolate chip ice cream is dairy-free, honey-sweetened, and suitable for the GAPS and Paleo diets. Make this easy coconut ice cream today!

I’ve been making coconut milk ice cream for a long time now, but I didn’t know that you could make a coconut version of mint chocolate chip ice cream until I came across this recipe at the Nourishing Gourmet sometime last year. I’d assumed that coconut and mint wouldn’t be a good pairing, but I don’t know what I was thinking—they go together fantastically. I made the original recipe creamier, mintier, and more chocolaty. I make this recipe all the time—it’s one of our favorite ice creams. (Which is really saying something, because we love ice cream. :))

I think that the mint does a good job of toning down the coconut flavor in this ice cream.…
