Coconut Ice CreamThese ice cream (or what we like to call n'ice cream) and sorbet recipes have been designed specifically with the BioChef Atlas Power Blender and the BioChef Living Food Blender in mind however you can also use the BioChef High Performance Blender – simply blend on ‘medium’ or ‘high’ in place or using the ‘ice-cream’ setting.

Important: When using frozen fruit, make sure you allow your fruit to slightly defrost by taking it out of the freezer 10 minutes before putting it into the blender.

‘Milk’ in these recipes can be substituted depending on your dietary requirements. Coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk and dairy milks are all fine to use.
