Raw Milk Coconut Ice Recipe


Coconut Ice Milk with Toasted Coconut Garnish

Coconut Ice Milk with Raw Wildflower Honey

Recipe submitted by Guest Blogger, Victoria Cortes, Victoriacortes.com

Yield: 1 quart

For the Nourishing Traditions dinner party in honor of Dr. Joseph Mercola, I served a trio of icy confections, one of which was a coconut ice that I prepared with raw milk. This recipe yields deliciously impressive results with very little effort. I recommend pairing this ice milk with my almond flour shortbread- like I did at the Nourishing Traditions dinner.


1 ½ cups raw milk

1 ½ cups cream

1 cup unsweetened/ shredded coconut + ½ cup for garnish

2 tablespoons coconut oil

¾ cup raw wildflower honey

1 teaspoon vanilla


1.)    Whisk together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for two to twelve hours in order to allow the flavors to meld.

2.)    Pour the mixture into an ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacture’s instructions. Pour the ice milk into a freezer contain and freeze for at least 2 hours.

3.)    To toast coconut for garnish, spread the shredded coconut on a sheet pan and bake at 350 until golden brown, five to ten minutes.

  1. I am CRAVING this right now. Can’t wait to try it!

  2. Kim, you inspired me- ice cream is not just for summer. I ordered an ice cream machine just now and cant wait to try your recipe and come up with some of my own.

    Raw milk and raw cream are great ingredients to inspire creativity.
    I wonder how dried berries would work, maybe some of those goji or acai?



  3. I know, doesn’t this recipe look yummy?

    To use dried berries, I would rehydrate in a filtered water or spring water (just add enough to cover). Then they could be pureed and added to the batter. You could also leave some whole for extra texture!

  4. Leah, that is the ultimate compliment- that you’re craving this ice cream! Thanks! You make me feel lucky that I have some in my freezer.

  5. Oh, yum. I’m tasting that already! Once I am through the GAPS diet with my daughter, I’ll be making raw milk ice cream again. This recipe is a must! Thanks for posting it. I also love having dinner parties and just love ideas that are out of the ordinary or gourmet….and still stick with health eating as their base.
