Makes 12 Servings.

  • Make sure you use a creamy coconut milk like Silk, as a water-based coconut milk will make the nice cream crystallize.
  • You don’t need to wait the full 10 – 20 minutes to serve, but doing so allows the nice cream to thaw a little, so it’s easier to cut.
  • Double down on the tropical flavour—try our Gluten-free Tropical Nice Cream Sandwiches with our Sweet Hawaiian Wide Slice bread!
