Dairy-Free Ice Cream

For those of you who are dairy free, Coconut Bliss Ice Cream made from coconut milk is the BEST by far!  I promise, you won’t know it’s not from a cow and neither will your kids.

Note:  Oftentimes, people see the words dairy-free/gluten free and think, it must be healthy so I’ll eat a ton.  Just because it has that on the label, doesn’t mean it’s healthy.  Don’t overdo it, it’s still sugar and will still make you just as fat as other ice creams.  It just won’t give you the bellyache after  🙂
