Vegan Coconut Ice Cream - Conscious Cooking

Vegan Coconut Ice Cream

This vegan coconut ice cream is sooooo good. It’s super creamy, tasty, sweet, comforting and guilt-free. Why? It’s made with coconut milk and cream, vanilla extract, pink salt, and fresh dates to sweeten. No dairy, refined sugar, gums or additives in here. That’s what I call a guilt-free ice cream. Yum.

How is the ice cream made?

I used my ice cream maker but to be honest, I don’t think you need it. But what I did was that I blended all the ingredients until smooth. Then, I transferred the mixture to the ice cream maker and ran it for 20-25 minutes. You can then have a few bites as it will have frozen or you simply pour it into a container or loaf pan like I did and freeze it until set. Before scooping the ice cream out, you’ll need to let it at room temperature for about 5 minutes. Guys, it’s so good. Worth trying it. And if you make it without the ice cream machine please let me know how it turned out!

What kind of coconut milk do you use?

I use organic, full-fat (important!) canned coconut milk and cream.

For the milk, I usually use Organic Thai Kitchen or Cha’s Organics .

And for the cream, I use Let’s Do… Organic or Cha’s Organics.

How do I store it?

I freeze the mixture overnight in a loaf pan. You can keep it there if you will eat it quickly or transfer it to a freezer safe container. Up to you.

The ice cream is delicious and perfect for a hot summer day. Your kids should love it too.

Alright. Let’s jump to the recipe!

Prep Time10 minutes

  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk

If you don't have an ice cream maker, simply transfer the mixture to a clean loaf pan or container and freeze until set.
