“This ice cream recipe uses a can of coconut milk. The use of eggs is optional so it can be vegan. It has a very low GI (glycemic index), so it is diabetic-friendly and ideal for anyone who is watching their weight. Please adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste. I used an ice cream maker, but it is possible to make it without it. For detailed instructions on making ice cream without an ice cream maker, please Google “How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.” For more gluten-free, low-GI, pesco-vegetarian recipes, please visit my blog,”
