Dairy free, paleo, gluten free, refined sugar free and super delicious! This is a full-flavored homemade ice cream that you can mix up in the blender and put in a bowl to freeze. No ice cream maker required!

1⃣In a blender add:
🔹1 can full fat coconut milk
🔹1/4c water
🔹2T honey
🔹1-2t peppermint extract (to taste)
***Optional add-ins:
🔹1t vanilla crème stevia (optional)
🔹1T arrowroot powder (optional but prevents ice crystals from forming while freezing, keeps it smooth and thickens it)
🔹1/4c hemp seeds (optional but add a nice boost of essential fatty acids and protein)
2⃣Blend until smooth then pour into freezer safe dish. Stir in 1/4c dark chocolate chips and place in freezer. Stir every hour until ready to eat! (Maybe 3 hours?)

Note-I saw a recipe for vanilla hemp seed ice cream online and decided to try them in this recipe, they really have a neutral flavor so they do not alter the taste at all. I liked the nutritional boost they give the ice cream and since I have a package to use up will definitely be adding them to all my ice cream recipes 😊

Here they are…perfect, sweet, delicious and nutritious elderberry muffins. YUM. Paleo and gluten-free as well! These had the perfect texture and subtle sweetness that will go perfectly warmed up and spread with some grass-fed butter…ahh.
