Coconut Gelato

I bought an ice cream maker on sale at the start of the summer. You can't be a Mom of two and not have an ice cream maker...right? (Well, that's what I told myself as I was in line buying it anyway!) My Mom used to make home made ice cream every year for my birthday growing up. However this was a huge ordeal. There was rock salt, a lot of standing around and pouring layers of ice and salt while it churned. It was a lot of work, so we didn't do it often. But times have changed and ice cream makers have gotten much more user friendly. This recipe took no more than 5 minutes to put together, and about 40 minutes of churning before we had cold creamy coconut gelato! YUM!
This is dairy free, but FULL of all the creamy flavor of real ice cream. Only three ingredients, you can't go wrong!

Coconut Gelato
Recipe from www.weelicious.com
2 13 oz Cans Coconut Milk, unsweetened
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/3 Cup Agave

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine.
2. Pour the mixture into a ice cream maker and freeze (churn) according to manufacturer’s instructions.
3. Transfer to a container and freeze for 2-3 hours or until firm.
4. Serve.
* If you don’t own an ice cream machine, you can pour the mixture into Popsicle molds and freeze for 3-4 hours. Might be good to add crushed pineapple to the mixture as well.
