Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream


Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream  
After reading Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit's recipe for Strawberry Ice Cream, I fully intended to make a nice, normal strawberry ice cream.  Then I spotted those pretzels and rekindled my romance with sweet + salty.  I was 5 seconds away from adding pepper too, but I refrained.  Next time.
 
This Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream was fantastic.  The pretzels were perfect in it.  Even if you don't add them - *gasp* - do use a shake or two of salt to bring out the strawberry sweetness.

You could use any sort of extract. Not sure about the coconut milk. You can use heavy cream, but that makes it a bit less "healthy." However, I have an O negative blood type and I eat these foods just fine!

Looks yummy! I have a Q: Can I substitute the coconut milk and vanilla extract for something else? Blood type O's can't have those two ingredients. Just wondering. Thanks & Blessings!
