Author Notes: The science behind this ice cream recipe is simple. Take a creamy-fatty base (the coconut milk), add a super rich, decadent yogurt (vegan, if accessible), and sweeten with the natural sugars found in honey and dates. Whip these ingredients together for a super rich ice cream that never curdles, ices, or lets you down. Slightly acidic and delicately sweet, this ice cream is a perfect harmony. Kind to the belly, delicious for the soul.Tasty Plan
