You may be wondering right now what makes this ice cream stand out from all the other vegan ice creams out there. The secret is simply coconut milk, a very common and underrated milk substitute. It's true that there are multiple milk substitutes out there in the market but nothing compares to richness and smoothness of it.
To the coconut milk, we add to that a bit of cornstarch to give it that much needed thickness. We also include your favorite sweetener to the mix. The sweetener can be any sugar base, but agave creates the best results because it helps prevent those pesky ice crystals from forming and it keeps the ice cream nice and smooth. It all depends on your preference, you can use honey, maple syrup or even granulated sugar. You combine these 3 ingredients and cook it on a stove top until it turns thick to a point that it feel and looks like pudding. This is your simple yet satisfying ice cream base.
