The Best Coconut Ice Cream

When life gets busy like mine has been lately, it’s so important to allow yourself time to live schedule free and do things that bring you joy, and that’s exactly what I did this weekend and it was Marvelous.

It’s been super hot and I have been craving ice cream lately, but being lactose intolerant means I can’t eat regular ice cream.  Over the past month or so I have been searching for a good dairy free ice cream recipe, I have tried a few with no luck in any having big flavor, but this weekend I put together a recipe that turned out to be absolutely delicious.

Full fat coconut milk and unsweetened almond was the answer, along with using coconut sugar and agave nectar as sweeteners the result was ice cream with a rich smooth cappuccino taste.

Sweet Coconut Ice Cream

After having the best polenta I have ever tasted at Coronado Springs Resort, I wanted to see if I could make a tasty polenta dish. I used a very fine grain polenta and it was Marvelous.

Polenta with Mushrooms and Kale

I hope you had fun this weekend and I hope you are being Marvelous in your Monday.

My Marvelous Week In Photos

Leave a comment

MiMM Marvelous was my experience last week, in the Magical World of Disney at Coronado Springs Resort.  I am sharing my Marvelous week with photos from my trip, which was an amazing work event.

I was on a very early flight Monday morning, so I had breakfast from Einstein Bagels at the airport, it was a tasty egg, spinach, mushroom and swiss bagel sandwich and a Blue Machine Naked.
