Candy Cane Ice Cream! I can’t wait to share one of my new favorite recipes with you! This candy cane ice cream recipe is a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream and a satisfying treat that reminds me of Christmas. While it may sound like a lot of effort, I assure you it’s super simple and totally worth it! Dairy free, tons of flavor, and no nasty unnecessary ingredients.
One can full fat organic coconut milk
2 egg yolks
1 Tbsp raw organic honey
1 tsp organic peppermint extract
1-2 crushed organic candy canes
Whisk together coconut milk, egg yolks, and honey in a saucepan on medium heat for a few minutes until it thickens slightly. Then add peppermint extract. Cool mixture in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Once cooled, add to your ice cream machine and follow instructions from the manufacturer for your specific machine.
Once ice cream begins to freeze, add the crushed candy cane until well incorporated. Store in your freezer and enjoy in moderation!
A word about ingredients: Please note that we always use the most pure organic ingredients as possible in our recipes and we recommend that you do the same. I was able to find organic candy canes without any dyes or artificial flavorings at our local Wegmans. You can always check online if they are not available where you live. Remember these are also seasonal items so stock up around Christmas time!
