Vegan ice cream is ice cream that is made without any kind of dairy products. But don’t worry, it’s still possible to enjoy creamy and delicious ice cream without milk. The secret ingredient is coconut milk! In most cases, vegan ice cream is healthier than regular ice cream because many vegan ice cream recipes call for sugar substitutions like maple syrup or coconut sugar. These desserts are so rich, you won’t even notice the dairy is gone. Here we go!
Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream
Just add a few spoonfuls of cacao and get a rich creamy chocolate ice cream. Bravo, avocado! Taste, and add sweetener or more cacao if desired. Serve straight away or transfer to a freezer-safe container, cover and freeze until ready to be served. Let the ice cream thaw for 10-15 minutes before serving. Scoop into bowls, serve, and enjoy!
This pink berry delight is super easy, fresh, and so creamy. The recipe works perfectly with other berries and fruits as well! Combine the banana, raspberries, almond butter, and syrup in a blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture, scraping down the sides of the blender a few times if necessary. Add the almond milk, if needed, to achieve the desired texture. Scoop into a bowl, serve, and enjoy!
Banana Ice Cream
For quick and easy ice cream, just throw some frozen bananas into a blender, whip them up, and enjoy. Combine the bananas (and other fruit) in a blender and pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as necessary. If the mixture is too thick, add the almond milk to achieve the desired consistency. Add flavoring and sweetener, if using, and blend until combined. Scoop into a bowl, serve, and enjoy!
Mint Chocolate Chip Sundae
Need a mint fix but don’t want to wait too long? This beauty is ready in minutes! When you make this ice cream, taste and add more sweetener or mint if desired. Add about two-thirds of the raw cacao nibs and stir gently with a spoon. Scoop into bowls, sprinkle the remaining raw cacao nibs generously on top, and enjoy!
Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream
Cinnamon buns are like a big warm hug from the inside. There is no better comfort food than this ice cream when you are in need of some extra care and tenderness. Scoop the ice cream into a bowl. Stir in some of the cinnamon paste. Divide the ice cream between the serving bowl and top with chunks of the flaky cinnamon crumbs. Serve and enjoy!
Sweet Potato Gingerbread Ice Cream
It may sound odd, but sweet potato serves as a terrific base for ice cream. We love to combine it with warm notes of gingerbread spice for an autumnal flair– but sweet potato would also work as a base for rich chocolate ice creams. Enjoy as a soft serve or freeze for one to two hours before serving.
But keep in mind that vegan ice cream is still a sweet treat that you don’t enjoy every day. And it’s totally fine once in a while! It’s not like you’re eating ice cream for breakfast! You still can keep dietary restrictions from diving into dairy-loaded sweets than vegan ice cream is something you need to discover.
