I know it seems crazy to be making ice cream when it is snowing outside. But every once in a while our family wants some ice cream even when the numbers on the thermometer are down fairly low. We have been buying So Delicious Coconut Milk Icecream and we love it! Here is a nice recipe if you don’t want to purchase pre-made ice cream. I also like that you can add other ingredients and vary the flavors when you make your own desserts.Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream
