Triple Berry Ice Cream Recipe

1 (14-ounce) can full-fat coconut milk

1 cup sliced strawberries

1 cup blueberries

1 cup raspberries

2/3 cup granulated sugar or agave syrup

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Then freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.

If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, you can still make ice cream by putting the mixture into a freezer-proof bowl or deep baking dish in the freezer. After 45 mins, check to see if it is starting to freeze around the edges.  Use a stick-blender or hand-held mixer to break up the ice and blend it smooth, or just really beat it hard with a whisk or spatula.

Return it to the freezer and repeat blending or beating it every 30 mins until it’s frozen solid. After 2-3 hours you will have a delicious ice cream.
