Tangerine Frozen Yoghurt (Vegan and AIP)

I love experimenting with coconut milk based ice creams with my ice cream maker. Making them with homemade coconut milk kefir gives the ice cream a slight pleasant tanginess and a nice dose of probiotics too. The coconut milk kefir based ice creams seem to turn out best if there is some fruit or fruit juice in the mix. Plain vanilla kefir ice cream I tried once wasn't as good.

Probiotic Tangerine Frozen Yoghurt

2 organic tangerines (organic as you'll use the peel too)
Juice of half an orange (for instance the one you have left over from your orange ginger salmon)
3/4 cup coconut milk kefir
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
An inch or two of vanilla bean
Just a small slice of fresh ginger

Grate the peel of the tangerines and squeeze the juice of them. Scrape the vanilla from the vanilla bean. Add all ingredients except the grated peel to a blender. Blend and last add the peel. Put in an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy!

PS. IF I ate chocolate, I bet this would be delicious with some home made chocolate syrup...


  1. This looks delicious! Have you tried lime? I bet the combination of coconut and lime would be really good too.

    1. Oooooh. I have not but I will! I will try it in a few days, I don't allow myself treats like this more than once a week :) More affordable like that too.

  2. Now I want to make some too! I might try making my own coconut milk, I can't find any locally without additives.

    1. I just made my own, it was easy. I will post the recipe right away! :) It is cheap too. And for fruit ice creams like this you don't need a lot of coconut so it is cheaper. Consider getting the milk grains too to ferment it, it is super easy and delicious too. Instructions on this blog too, just search for kefir.
