Chai Coconut Milk Ice Cream

This is our favorite go-to ice cream.  Simple ingredients, great flavor and super easy to make. We served this ice cream along side chocolate layer cake for Baby Brother's 1st Birthday and it was a big hit.  We also enjoy serving drowned in hot coffee or Crio Bru in the form of Affogato.  We can't wait to try with this chocolate ganache or this hard chocolate topping.  See below how great it is scooped on top of our favorite brownies.  But really, it's great on it's own!

What you need:
2, 14 ounce cans of full fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon each of ground nutmeg, cloves, and cardamom
a pinch or two of unrefined salt
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or combination of 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup raw honey.  
*for vegans, make with maple syrup or check first if honey is permitted

What to do:
Blend or whisk ingredients until smooth.  
Follow instructions of your ice cream maker to freeze until smooth.  We churned for about 25 minutes and packed two pints.
