Luscious and Lickable

Leapin' Lemurs

The Inspiration:
We had friends visiting this day who could not eat diary or chocolate. I decided to go with a coconut-milk based mix, flavored with some fresh fruit I'd gotten.

The Recipe:

Summer Fruit Frost
(my own recipe, dairy-free)
Pint fresh raspberries
Four ripe nectarines
2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 can Chaokoh coconut milk

Simmer the fruit and sugar in the water until sugar dissolves and fruit is mushy (not long if you used ripe fruit). Press through a fine sieve and discard seeds and skins. Stir in lemon juice and coconut milk, chill for a few hours and process in your ice cream machine.

The Results:
This was a hit with our friends, so it's a winner! The kids all asked for seconds, and the remains were getting soft, so I decided to pile the goo into some popsicle molds. Worked great, and I will definitely use the coconut milk trick for non-dairy friends in the future.

Comments

Oh man, that sounds amazing.
I definitely thought of you when I made it! And if you use the fork-fluffing method, you don't need an ice cream maker, either (or just do popsicles).
