  • ice cream maker
  • blender is ideal but not necessary, may also be whisked together in a large bowl


  • 2 cans coconut milk full fat, Native Forest brand highly preferred and recommended
  • 2/3 cup sweetener I like to use agave nectar in this recipe, but you can also use AND for AIP: pure maple syrup or raw honey. GAPS: honey. Other diets: cane sugar OR for Keto: use allulose.
  • 1/2 cup lime juice fresh, from 3 limes, or 4 if they're small
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt depending on how salty your salt is; if you use a finishing salt, you can use the full ½ teaspoon.


  • Make sure coconut milk is not chilled or cold. (This will prevent the coconut cream on the top half of the can from puréeing as smoothly into the other ingredients.) It should be room temperature.
  • Before mixing the ingredients together, unless you plan to serve the ice cream as soon as it's frozen, place storage container in the freezer to chill.
  • Add all four ingredients to blender: creamy coconut milk, sweetener of choice, fresh lime juice and sea salt.
  • Purée until smooth and ingredients are all dissolved, about 25 seconds.
  • Begin ice cream maker, and pour in "mix". The bowl will be very full.
  • Churn about 25 minutes, until ice cream mixture has expanded and frozen.
  • Serve fresh soft serve, or pour into well chilled storage container.
