Useful tips for Coconut ice cream

We used a 32-ounce container on our G-Series Vitamix (a Pro 750). If you’re using a full size, 64 ounce container, you’ll probably need to make a double (or triple batch).

Use frozen bananas so you don't have to dilute the flavor with ice.

If you don't have time to freeze the coconut milk. Use 1/2 cup in liquid form + 1 cup ice. Then place in a loaf pan to freeze after blending for an hour.
