Peachy Coconut and Tangerine Ice Cream
Ice Cream is one of my all time favourite foods. But when you are lactose intolerant and are staying away from sugary foods having ice cream becomes a thing of the past! Well, I'm proud to say my ice cream free days are over!!! By chance, I combined a few ingrediants together in my kitchen and came up with a delicious dairy and sugar free Ice Cream recipe! Hooray! The coconut cream makes this ice cream deliciously creamy and the tangerine essential oil and berries gives it a lovely summer kiss. And the peach chunks just make it yummmmmy! Perfect for hot afternoons (or even breakfast...which may or may not have happened today...).
COCONUT AND TANGERINE ICE CREAM
1 Can of Chilled Coconut Cream (I like to keep a few cans in my fridge for convenience!)
A handful of frozen berries (I used raspberries, strawberries and blueberries)
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste or vanilla essence
1-3 drops of Young Living Tangerine Essential Oil
1-2 tablespoons of sweetener (I used Stevia. Honey or Coconut Sugar would also work).
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Cut peach into small chunks. Add peach chunks to mixture and stir through. Pour mixture into ice cream molds and freeze overnight. ENJOY!
(P.S - This recipe is one where you can get a little creative! Not a fan of peaches or berries? No problem! Try adding cacao powder for a chocolate version, or avocado to make it extra creamy! You could even throw in mint leaves, nuts or different fruits. Your imagination is the limit!)

I am starting my journey with Essential Oils and have done my own research on the purity of oils. I am confident in using oils in my recipes because I only use Young Living. They are beyond organic and never use pesticides, herbicides or any harmful chemicals. Their soil has never been exposed to them as well. I don’t suggest ever using any other oil for ingestion because I don’t know of their purity. ***
