Most ice creams are made from diary. Not that there is anything wrong with dairy but some poor souls have issues with lactose and that means they get upset stomachs if they eat anything with milk in it. If that’s you, you either a) eat dairy ice cream and suffer or b) miss out on ice cream altogether.
With this creamy ice cream dessert, you don’t have to do either as it’s completely lactose free being made from coconut milk instead.
It tastes so good that your dairy eating friends may end up being converted from eating regular ice cream to this delicious dairy-free alternative!
