When I went “healthy,” my heart dropped when I learned that I had to give up my precious ice cream. Me and dairy have a lifelong love-hate relationship. My tastebuds LOVED my dairy sweet goodies, but the rest of my body HATED them! After discovering coconut milk ice cream, I thought I died and went to Heaven. Well, not really, but you know what I mean! 😉

If you’re trying to kick the dairy habit, then start with this recipe. You’ll love it!
