This smooth ice cream is a cool indulgence for special occasions. Passion fruit grows on pretty vines at The ranch. The pulp boasts significant amounts of beta-carotene, vitamin c, and fiber, and a tart, floral flavor that’s a winning contrast to the sweet coconut. if you can’t get your hands on a passion fruit, the ice cream is good layered with banana, kiwi, and mango slices to create a tropical banana split, or simply top with fresh berries.
Makes about 1 pint
1 (13.5-ounce) can organic coconut milk
6 tablespoons raw agave nectar
3 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
