Description

This creamy treat was made in honor of World Autism Awareness Day. Many of these amazing children are on gluten- and dairy-free diets. The promoters of the awareness movement urged everyone to wear blue on April 2nd. Blueberries seemed like the obvious tribute.

Ingredients

  • 2-½ cups Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 3 cups Coconut Milk (full-fat Version), Well Stirred
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

In a medium saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, and salt. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil, mashing the blueberries with the back of a fork. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

In a blender, combine coconut milk, the blueberry mixture, and vanilla extract. Cover and chill the mixture until cold, about 2 hours.

Pour the mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer for several hours, or until ice cream hardens. The ice cream can be stored in the freezer for up to 1 week.

After making this and loving the fruit combination, I added fresh pineapple and blended in a blender to make a smoothie. It’s great!

My family loved this one…especially my son who has a milk allergy.

Absolutely amazing! My daughter is severely lactose intolerant so I could not wait to try this recipe. It is the creamiest ice cream I have ever made, so delicious. I can’t wait to try it with other frozen fruits. Thank you so much!

Allison, my kids and husband absolutely loved this. It’s a nice spin on traditional ice cream.

This is one of our favorites! Our son is allergic to all dairy products, so finding alternatives that don’t have crazy artificial ingredients can be hard. This recipe rocks, and is super easy!

This is a tasty sorbet. I also decreased the sugar and made it with peaches instead of blueberries, because that’s what I had on hand. Delicious!

I’m always looking for dairy-free ice cream since my son has a milk allergy. We enjoyed this. Will not put as much sugar in next time though.

Creamy sorbet! I slightly decreased the sugar, too, and still found it plenty sweet enough. The coconut milk sort of has a strange aftertaste to me, but it’s still a delightful dairy-free treat that’s super simple to prepare.

Easy and delicious! My husband doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth, but he LOVED this ice “cream.” It was my first time making anything like ice cream, and I don’t have an ice cream maker, but I still managed. Next time I will try it with a little bit less sugar since blueberries are pretty sweet on their own. The coconut flavor wasn’t too strong for someone who isn’t crazy about coconut, either.
