SCD Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

The weather has warmed up again and I am back at it....making ice cream! This recipe includes fresh vanilla beans and is very flavorful. The coconut flavor is there but not pronounced. It did get VERY hard in the freezer so I set it out a few minutes before dishing it up to serve.

SCD Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

1/3 c. very warm water
2 tsp. gelatin
1/4 c. honey
1/8 tsp. salt
2 cans full fat coconut milk, check for no added starches or sugars
1 T. vanilla
1/2 vanilla bean

Dissolve the gelatin in the water. If needed microwave it in 5 second intervals to keep it hot until gelatin dissolves. Combine coconut milk, vanilla, salt, honey, and gelatin mixture. Stir well. Chop the vanilla bean in a food processor and scrape out all the bits into the mixture, stir. Refrigerate 1 hour and freeze as directed in your ice cream freezer. I have this one by Cuisinart and it works great!
