Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream (Dairy Free)


Several years ago I followed a diet called The PH Miracle Diet for Weight Loss. It was a very restrictive diet that was difficult to follow. The diet is dairy-free, sugar-free, mostly vegan with a huge focus on green foods. I was able to follow the diet for 7 months and lost 58 pounds (even thought I cheated every single day and ate my coconut milk ice cream)! I was new to real food and I didn’t know about the metabolism boosting effects of Coconut oil at the time. The Cherry Armaretto Ice Cream from Coconut Bliss was my daily comfort and the only way I was able to follow such a restrictive diet.

Even though I currently eat dairy (I love my raw dairy) I still enjoy eating coconut milk ice cream. I was able to create my own Cherry Amaretto Ice Cream sweetened with raw honey (I’m not a fan of agave) with BPA free/additive free coconut milk. This ice cream is heavenly!

    Do you use the entire cans or just the cream from the coconut milk?
    Also, can I use frozen cherries?

    Can I substitute another extract if I can’t use almond extract?

    I’m a reformed agave user, too. I’m currently following the anti-inflammatory Abascal Plan, which allows absolutely no sweeteners, including stevia, in its elimination phase (during which I’ve lost 10 lbs. and reduced swelling in my hands, feet and legs by more than 75%). Most people seem to stick with that phase for at least a year or so. I’m experimenting with the nightshades at the moment, but think I’ll have to stay on the strictest part of this plan for some time. I would adapt your recipe to substitute a mashed banana for the honey, switch out the cherries for raspberries (in season at the moment) and add some chopped unsweetened chocolate. Thanks for sharing.

    We have agave nectar at home, would I still use a cup?

      Please tell me you’re not feeding that agave nectar to children. 🙁 It’s even higher fructose level than HFCS, even more heavily processed than HFCS, and in a petrie dish, pancreatic cancer cells PROLIFERATE in its presence. One of the biggest scams of modern times. Local raw honey better for you.
