An Ice Cream maker is a great investment. You don’t even need to purchase a top of the line model either for great results. I own the basic $50 Cuisinart Model – it works like a charm.

If you already own one- you know just how simple ice cream is to make. The combination of possible ingredients is endless- and the satisfaction and fresh flavor of REAL ice cream takes the fun over the top. AND if you are a health conscious individual its simple to nix out refined sugar and its quite easy to avoid just about any food allergy.

You may have noticed that I have a fondness for Kiwi’s. Why? I think they are overlooked and frequently unused. Their bright green color and fresh crisp taste have a hold of my heart. I LOVE finding new ways to use them.

My -Raw Kiwi & Lime Cheesecake (Naturally Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Rice/Egg/Corn Free) was a blast to put together and it provided the inspiration for this fun easy ice cream recipe.

Ice cream is a flexible dessert- you can use a variety of different milks or sugars. For example in this recipe if you are a dairy consumer you could quite simply use Organic heavy cream instead of heavy Coconut Milk.  Whatever suits your fancy. Also The Fresh Coconut is not essential- the ice cream will work with or without it. And the Agave nectar- feel free to use honey or coconut nectar instead!


1 Cup Soaked Cashews
1 Cup Fresh Shredded Coconut (optional)
1 Can Full Fat (Heavy) Coconut Milk
1/3 Cup Raw Agave Nectar (Or more or less to taste)
6 Ripe Peeled and chopped Kiwi’s
2 1/2 TBS Lime Juice


The Directions are simple- combine all ingredients in a food processor or Blender and then pour into your ice cream maker and churn for 30 minutes or until firm.

I LOVE finding new ways with kiwi–for so many years, all I did was eat them plain! (which isn't bad. . . just looking for something else). I love the sound of this and it will definitely be on my "to-make" list this summer. :D Thanks for the recipe!

This looks absolutely fantastic, Brittany! I wish my kitchen had room for an ice cream maker as I would totally make this all the time. Yum!

I wish your kitchen had room too! An Ice cream maker is so much fun to have! I keep mine stored way out the way and just bring it out as needed :)
