What do pirates and fairies have in common? They are often a part of my kid’s world of imaginative play, complete with pretend swords, fairy wings and silly stories. When I heard about the new Disney DVD coming out called The Pirate Fairy, I was pretty sure my kids would love it. Today I’m sharing this recipe inspired by the movie adorned with Blue Pixie Dust. Did you know fairies can’t fly without Blue Pixie Dust? 

Our own all-natural vegetable colored blue pixie dust is decorating Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s a diary-free ice cream, which is great for so many people who are lactose-intolerant. It’s great to have a couple of recipe ideas for when you have guests over that dietary restrictions, which is often the case when we have play dates these days. It’s also vegan friendly.

Easy Coconut Ice Cream. Just three ingredients needed!

The Pirate Fairy DVD/Blu-Ray will be available for purchase at Walmart on April 1st, so the recipe I created includes ingredients that can also be found there. It’s simple with only three ingredients needed. Decorate your own ice cream with some blue pixie dust! Plus, there is also an exclusive Pixie Hollow Bake-Off DVD at Walmart, and my favorite chef Giada de Laurentiis plays the head baking fairy Gelata.

Coconut milk is the star ingredient in this recipe. Sometime you can find one that is “low-fat” and I would choose that one as it’s easier to work with. The one here from Walmart worked perfectly as the whole thing was liquid, even though it wasn’t specifically call low-fat. Cane sugar is often sold as Sugar In The Raw. The recipe was developed for use in an ice cream maker. (We use the Breville one.)
