Honey Coconut Ice Cream

I hope y’all had a fabulous and safe 4th of July weekend! Now that 4th of July is behind us, its full steam ahead into summer. And ya know what that means….yep, Christmas is just around the corner. That’s right, I said it, Christmas. It will be here before ya know it.

Seeing its summertime and the best thing about summer is cold, frozen sweets, I have a yummy ice cream recipe to share with you today, Honey Coconut ice cream. I made this for 4th of July and added some blue and red sprinkles to make it festive and it was a hit!

I was planning on making my coconut ice cream when all of a sudden it hit me, why don’t we try honey instead of powdered sugar for a more healthy ice cream. Yea, I just said healthy ice cream….kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it? Healthy and ice cream in the same sentence.

Anywho, I used honey to sweeten this ice cream and it turned out so delicious that I just had to share it with y’all so you can see for yourself. It really has a different taste than the coconut ice cream  I made a few weeks ago. This ice cream has a sweet honey taste that reminds you of everything summer!

And the sprinkles add some fun, making it a win-win for everybody! Moms will love it for the natural ingredients and kids will love it for the sprinkles and the sweet honey coconut flavor, not to mention because its ice cream! And who doesn’t love ice cream?
