Apple Cinnamon Toast Ice Cream (dairy free) in 7 ingredients or less.

What you need...

  • 2 13.5 ounce cans full fat coconut mile (roughly 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 tsp quality vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon sugar
  • 1 piece of toast, grated or scraped with a knife (vegan variety)

  3. Transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate until cooled.  (6-8 hours, covered with plastic wrap after steam was cooled)
  4. Once the mixture is thoroughly chilled, transfer it into a bowl of your ice cream machine and mix according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Once the ice cream is nearly done - 35-40 min - sprinkle in half of the cinnamon sugar and toast flecks.
  6. When the ice cream machine stops, transfer to a freezer-safe container and sprinkle in the rest of the cinnamon sugar and toast flecks, swirling with a knife to slightly incorporate.
  7. You can eat it as is, creamy or place in freezer to harden.  (can keep for 1 week)  
  8. Thaw 10-15 minutes before serving.
  9. Sprinkle fresh cut apples on top of your ice cream.
