VEGAN COCONUT ICE CREAM
The only thing that changes in the recipe is heavy cream which can be substituted with coconut cream or by almond paste can be used for more nutritious and flavored coconut ice cream. I prefer adding almond paste which really enhances the coconut ice cream better than than the original recipe.
Even adding cashew paste which really gives more flavor and the texture.
Just boil the almonds for 20 minutes and grind it into a fine paste by adding little water and maple syrup or brown sugar.
