  1. I’m interested in making this for my boyfriend, but he is lactose intolerant. What substitutes do you suggest?

    1. Hi Jacqueline,

      I have not made coconut ice cream with anything other than the ingredients I have listed in this recipe. But, I would suggest you have a look at this vegan coconut ice cream recipe and see if it might be one you’d like to try. It’s made with full fat coconut milk and sounds like it could be a winner – https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-vegan-ice-cream-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-204755

      Hope this helps and I’m sure your boyfriend will love it.
