Paleo Coconut Ice Cream

I was craving something sweet, so I looked around for a recipe for paleo ice cream using coconut milk. I found a variety of things to try, but in the end I made this to use what I had at the house. (I also ran across some really interesting things I want to try creating sweet things with avocado.)

Freezer Paleo Coconut Ice Cream
1 can coconut milk (full fat), refrigerated
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1 t. vanilla (or more to taste)
1 pinch salt
1 T. coconut sugar, or other low glycemic sugar substitute (I actually tried this batch with only 1 t., since I don’t really like very sweet things)

Put everything in your Vitamix (or high powered blender) and blend until smooth. Put into a shallow dish or tupperware, cover, and freeze; stirring every hour or so. Should take 2-3 hours to firm up.
