  • 1/2 TBSP pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt 

Basil Simple Syrup 

  • 2 TBSP chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup water 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


Basil Simple Syrup

Strawberry Basil Ice Cream 

  1. To a high powered blender add coconut milk ice cubes and frozen strawberries. Blend until the ice cubes break down and the mixture resembles granita, scraping down the sides as necessary. 
  2. Next, add coconut milk, vanilla, basil simple syrup or maple syrup and pinch of salt. Blend until combined, scraping down sides as necessary. Mixture should be thick and resemble the texture of soft serve. 
  3. Serve as is or place in freezer for 30 minutes until the ice cream has frozen further.
