Recipe Collection: Dairy-Free Ice Cream
**This post has been entered in Ultimate Recipe Swap at Life as Mom!**
This ice cream, in addition to being dairy-free, can be egg-free as well, is versatile, and is completely raw! It’s also full of a lot of very healthy fat.
2 15-oz. cans coconut milk (or 4 c. whole milk)
3 eggs (you can omit)
1/2 cup raw honey (or 1/4 c. organic sugar)
1/4 cup coconut oil (optional)
2 tsp. vanilla (you can try making your own)
Directions: Put all ingredients in a blender (you might not be able to get the second can of coconut milk in, but you can add that as you put it in your ice cream maker) and blend until smooth. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Enjoy! It’s really that simple.
Chocolate ice cream: Add 1/2 cup raw cacao powder and blend.
Mint chocolate chip: Reduce vanilla to 1 tsp., add 1 tsp. mint extract, and add about 1 cup chopped vegan chocolate chips. (I don’t recommend using green food coloring, because it contains propylene glycol — not something you want to consume!)
Chocolate chip: Add 1 cup chopped vegan chocolate chips.
Fruit ice cream: Blend 1 cup of your favorite fruit with the basic recipe (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, etc.).
I haven’t tried anything else but I’m sure you can imagine many other variations! If you think of any good ones, let me know!
