  1. MAKE THE ICE CREAM: Place the coconut cream, milk, nut butter, sweetener and vanilla into a Vitamix or a high-speed blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds, or until smooth and the mixture is combined.

  2. ICE CREAM MAKER INSTRUCTIONS: If you have an ice cream maker, have it ready and the bowl chilled prior to starting. Pour the blended mixture directly from your blender into the ice cream maker while it is moving. Churn for 20-25 minutes until it becomes a firm ball or the ice cream maker stops rotating.

  3. WITHOUT AN ICE CREAM MAKER: If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into ice cube trays for 2 hours, or until frozen. Blend frozen ice cubes in a high-speed blender until smooth.

  4. TRANSFER TO ICE CREAM CONTAINER: Spoon the ice cream mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan or 2-quart ice cream container. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
