  5. I've made "ice cream" with coconut milk before, too! It was a super simple base of coconut milk & sugar (like you used) and then fresh chopped cherries blended in. I love coconut-berry combos.

  6. That's so funny. I JUST bought Trader Joe's light coconut milk for the first time. Usually I hate light coconut milk, but Trader Joe's is really good and doesn't taste watery.

    I vote for adding this to daiquiris. That is a brilliant idea!!!

    1. I usually don't buy light coconut milk, but that's the only one they have.

      Come on over for a daiquiri!

  8. My husband and I just got an ice cream maker and this is the first recipe we tried. We didn't have enough strawberries, so used frozen mixed berries instead and it is really delicious and refreshing! It was almost 100 degrees here yesterday, so the sorbet was such a treat. Thanks for the great recipe...I'll definitely be checking out your other ice cream recipes this summer!!

  9. Emily, do you think almond milk would work also?

    1. Hey Tiffany! You could definitely try using unsweetened almond milk. I think it would work. The texture wouldn't be quite the same though, since coconut milk is much thicker.
