Three Ingredient Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream

This almost doesn’t even qualify as a recipe. I mean really. It’s that easy, you guys. But I’m into easy when it comes to food sometimes. And by sometimes I mean 99.9% of the time. And I think you probably are, too, especially when ice cream is involved.

Can we talk for a minute about my #tallgirlproblems? Almost every day that I’ve been in my new gym (aka a normal gym since I took a rest from CrossFit), I have been approached by at least one dude asking me where I played volleyball and/or basketball in college. I don’t even get a “Hi, nice to meet you!” anymore. Nope, just straight to the point. Because that’s just how the male brain works. And then I have to break the news to them that I, in fact, did not play in college. And they look at me with a very puzzled and confused face. Sorry to disappoint, guys.

Tall girl problem number two: jeans. Ohhhh jeans. The struggle is real everyone. Not only is it a struggle to find jeans long enough, because God forbid any store actually carry Long IN THE STORE. But the waist to thigh ratio is pretty much impossible to perfect with CrossFit quads. IMPOSSIBLE. I saw Juli from PaleOMG post about a pair of Vigoss jeans she bought and recommended and a lot of people commented saying they loved them, too, so I ordered a pair yesterday and am praying that they fit. Mostly because I realized after I ordered them that you can only return them for store credit. Ugh. That rule should be illegal.

Have you guys seen all of the stories this week about dogs being adorable? Like the pitbull that saved the chihuahuas life and they are now inseparable? I died. I can’t handle things like that. I never used to peg myself as an emotional crier, but sometimes it happens. Especially with adorable dog stories. Ugh. I miss my puppy.

P.s. You should absolutely pair this ice cream with a cookie or brownie from Paleo Bakehouse. It is divine. And you will thank me. And you will also thank me for giving you this coupon code for 10% off your orders on Just type in TAYLOR when you check out! For awhile now I’ve been thinking the Freckled Almond was my all time favorite, but after pairing it with this ice cream, the brownie has now taken the lead, friends.

    I don’t really have the tall girl problems (I’m relatively tall but my legs are short) but I totally feel you on the thigh to waist ratio. Somebody needs to start making jeans for girls with quads! And I love the simplicity of this. Sometimes I’m feeling fancy and will do the whole custard with egg yolks into ice cream thing but typically this is how I do it too. So simple and yet so tasty!
