Strawberry & Coconut Milk Ice Cream


one of the things that i've noticed about myself lately is that i've been careless. i am careless with my appearance, i rarely blow dry my hair (or even comb it!) and for a stretch of time, didn't bother with make up; not even for work and social outings. and my relationships? i fear that i've been careless in that aspect, too. i am not present when i am speaking with friends, my responses more like afterthoughts, than well-meaning and heartfelt; robotic and obligatory. i am curt and tho i've always been direct, lately, it's been a little too direct, a little too mean-tongued. this is awful of me. i shouldn't be so careless with other people's feelings, of their time or of their investment in me. i really should label these past hot months as the Summer of Carelessness -- where i abandoned decorum, appearances and essentially ran the risk of being abandoned.


this ice cream flavor is more traditional than the flavors i've played with this summer, and in line with my tummy restrictions, i used coconut milk. and as usual, i was careless with the exact measurements, and in fact, this is not custard based. i was feeling lazy, i had a container of overly ripe strawberries and damnit, the summer is ending (and along with it, my carelessness, hopefully) and i'm not ready to put away my ice cream maker.

Strawberry & Coconut Milk Ice Cream

1 can of coconut milk
container of strawberries, rough chopped, i like it chunky
organic sugar, i did not measure but if i had to hazard a guess, i'd say it was about 2 heaping TBL

mix everything in a bowl. leave in fridge until well chilled. throw into ice cream machine and make according to machine specs.

that's it.

hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.

recently finished: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larrson (it only took me 4 months!)


  1. this looks amazing! I love strawberry ice cream, but like how you added a twist!

  2. I finally put makeup on for the first time in a long time today ... fall is in the air and it's making me pay attention to my personal appearance. :-p

  3. claire,
    you know, i wasn't always a fan of strawberry ice cream as a kid but now? i'm all about it! the coconut milk is a lovely background to it all and a great alternative to using cream or milk. thanks for stopping by!

    oh autumn... but i do enjoy the fiery oranges and red and browns the season brings!
