  1. Could I replace this with coconut milk/cream? I’m lactose intolerant

      Hey Tiffany! We never tried, so not 100% sure but I think it might work. The consistency between the creams are similar and the whole idea of the mason jar ice cream is to aerate the cream to form the texture of ice cream. So I’d think they would aerate to similar textures! Hope it works out!

  2. So excited to try this!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Tammy! Awesome and hope it turns out well for you! Just a quick suggestion, it’s best after about 3-4 hours in the freezer. If you leave it overnight, it will get really hard and you’ll have to end up defrosting it.
