Creamy 5-Ingredient Coconut Milk Ice Cream {egg-free & dairy-free!}

Perhaps it’s the creamy coldness that just melts in your mouth.

Maybe it’s the comforting feel of fat and sugar hitting the back of your throat.

For whatever reason, there’s just something about ice cream. Ice cream — especially coconut milk ice cream — is the comfort food of choice in our house.

Reading the list of ingredients on your average supermarket ice cream should give you pause. There can be up to 32 grams of sugar in a single serving! Yes, ice cream is supposed to be sweet but eating excessive amounts of sugar can cause many health problems. We use natural sweeteners in our homemade coconut ice cream recipe to make a healthier dessert.

Do you need another reason to avoid store-bought ice cream and embrace our healthy vegan coconut ice cream instead? OK, here it is. The ice cream industry has a dirty little secret.

It’s true. The secret is that if EVERYONE who manufactures ice cream puts this ingredient in their recipes, they do not have to reveal it.

What is that ingredient, you ask? When you find out, you will toss the ice cream in your freezer and start making our coconut milk ice cream instead!

What Does Your Radiator Have In Common With Your Ice Cream?

Propylene glycol.

Propylene glycol keeps the ice cream from freezing rock hard by absorbing the water molecules that would form ice crystals in your freezer. Propylene glycol makes ice cream scoopable straight from the freezer. Propylene glycol is also the same ingredient used in radiator fluid. Now, the FDA has decided that a small amount of this ingredient is safe for human consumption.

How much is a “small amount?” One serving a week? Two? What if you eat two or more servings daily? (Because ice cream isn’t the only food containing propylene glycol.)

At what point does this “generally recognized as safe” ingredient become toxic?
