Coconut Almond Sorbet

As soon as the weather gets hot, I start making frozen desserts. Inspired by a friend who can’t have dairy, I made this coconut sorbet. I started with a can of coconut milk, added some almond milk, sweetened it and added vanilla for a little added flavor. So simple and really tasty. It has a lot of the creaminess of a dairy based dessert.  In fact, if you didn’t know, you would probably think there is some milk or cream in this sorbet, even though there isn’t. Looking forward to making some for my vegan niece the next time she comes to town.

Coconut Almond Sorbet

1 can (13.5 oz.) coconut milk

1 c. almond milk

¼ c. sugar- or to taste

2 t. vanilla

 

Combine all ingredients in bowl and stir until sugar is dissolved. Place in an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Makes 1 quart.

Note: If you don’t have an ice cream machine, you can freeze the sorbet in a shallow tray. Once frozen, remove from freezer and let it soften a few minutes. Break into chunks and process in a food processor to soften. Return to freezer until ready to eat.
