Chocolate Mint Ice Cream (dairy free)

Hi all. Did you think I dropped off of the face of the earth? It's been a rough spring with sick kids, so I haven't had much time to think about blogging. Thankfully we're all healthy and we're on to summer.

It's been really hot the last week or so here, so I decided to try to make some dairy free ice cream to cool us off a bit. Sure, you can buy some really good dairy free ice cream at the store....Coconut Bliss is a favorite around here. But there's something about homemade ice cream. This ice cream was super easy to make, very refreshing and good! Trust me, you won't be thinking that it's a dairy free's just a good chocolate treat! :)

Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

2 teaspoons kosher gelatin

1/4 cup peppermint tea, room temperature

1/4 cup honey

3-1/4 cups chocolate almond milk

1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over apple juice. Let sit, stirring occasionally, until gelatin is dissolved and softened, about 10 minutes.

2. In a medium saucepan, whisk together honey and 2 cups almond milk. Cook until just hot, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Add softened gelatin to hot milk mixture, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in remaining almond milk; let cool, cover, and refrigerate until very well-chilled ( I chilled it for about 8 hrs)

3. Spoon chilled mixture into the canister of an ice cream maker and make the ice cream per the manufacturers directions.

Makes about 1 quart.
