I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! (especially me for coconut ice cream!) I love using coconut cream powder as opposed to canned coconut milk. The ingredients are: natural coconut. It's not full of preservatives like the canned milk, and I think it has a fresher taste. I like how easily you can make milk or cream- depending on the powder to water ratio. You could of course, use canned coconut milk in this recipe if you want to, and of course fresh would be great! Note: Cooking time does not include freezing time since that might vary.
