Strawberry Almond Ice Cream (SCD Friendly)

Strawberries are now in abundance at my local Coop.  And they are just gorgeous – so juicy, so sweet!  Strawberry ice cream was in order this weekendbut some for mommy too please.  So an SCD ice cream was created.  My darling daughter informed me that this ice cream recipe tastes like strawberry gelato.  Since I haven’t had gelato is years, I can’t confirm this comparison, but Scott agreed, so hey, I’ll take it.  
I hope you love it too.   

-2 cans coconut milk (this brand is SCD friendly) 
-1 lb. fresh organic strawberries 
-1/3 cup of honey*
-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
-1/2 teaspoon almond extract (or to taste)

How To
1.  Blend all ingredients together until incorporated.
2.  Immediately transfer to ice cream maker and allow to churn until thick.
3.  Remove ice cream and transfer to glass storage.  Store in freezer and remove 20 minutes before serving. 
4.  Optional: top with fresh strawberries, chopped almonds and shredded coconut.


*Vegan option: use 1/3 cup agave, maple syrup, or stevia to taste. 
*This ice cream would be amazing with Vicky’s SCD friendly spounge cake!
*I often get an extra 1/2 pound of strawberries and blend them with the mixture just until they are chunky, then churn.  I love the little fresh strawberry chunks in the ice cream
*You could add 1 cup finely chopped nuts or finely chopped fresh strawberries to the final few minutes in the ice cream maker.   
*This recipe makes too much for my ice cream maker, so I threw some ice in with what remained in my blender and made a smoothie.
