Dairy Free Berry Ice Cream

It may look super healthy, topped with chia seeds and coconut, and although it is; I promise it's super tasty. It's also extremely easy to make, it's a bit like Nigella calling avocado toast a recipe, it's that easy. Plus, it's healthy food but with flavour, so your not going to give up on that "new year, new you", just yet. It's pretty easy to make ahead, just make a big batch, pop this into a container, and into the freezer, and take a scoop whenever you need it.

I like having it at breakfast, but is probably better as a dessert, in replace of ice cream. That's kind of why I have it at breakfast, because it's like ice cream, and there's no denying unconventional breakfasts are the best. If you wanted it more like a breakfast sprinkle granola on top, and add fresh fruit.

This recipe is super adaptable, swap the berries with whatever fruit you like (mango is another of my favourites). If your not that into fruit add a couple teaspoons of cocoa powder, would make a lovely chocolate "ice cream". If your latest internet craze, a smoothie bowl recipe; then just add more coconut milk to reach the desired consistency.
