The secret to getting a perfect texture is mixing the ice cream every 30 minutes, to avoid hard and flaky texture.

Vegan coconut lingonberry ice cream
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Total time: 3 hours
1 can coconut milk, chilled in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons Arctic Flavors wild lingonberry powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Scoop out the thick coconut cream that has formed at the top of the coconut milk can (about half of the can). Place the thick cream in a food mixer. Do not use the more liquid coconut water (left at the bottom half of the can) for the ice cream. Instead, you can mix this liquid in smoothies, yogurts, cooking, etc.
- Add rest of the ingredients (coconut oil, maple syrup, lingonberry powder, vanilla extract) in the mixer and mix until smooth.
- Place the mixture in a freezer-safe container with a lid. Freeze for at least 3 hours, mixing the ice cream vigorously every 30 minutes until serving, to ensure a smooth creamy texture.
- Serve as such or with any favorite toppings, like walnuts, fresh fruit or coconut flakes (or an extra hint of lingonberry powder!). Enjoy!
