Non-Dairy Nutty Ceylon Sonata Chai-ce Cream
This non-dairy "ice cream" is a mixture of Ceylon Sonata, spices, coconut milk, and almond. This is not the average ice cream. It is lighter, and the tea provides a well balanced playground for the rest of the ingredients. It could even be considered a healthy dessert! Prep time: 20 min. Chill time: overnight Total time varies by appliance.20 m 2
