How-To Make Homemade Dairy-Free & Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream

Intimidated by homemade ice cream? Don’t be! We’ve included easy-to-follow recipes that don’t require an ice cream maker.

Ingredients:

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk, shaken
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour (or cornstarch)
  • ¼ cup creamy cashew butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 pint strawberries, washed and dried, hulled and quartered.
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar or coconut sugar

Instructions:

  1. Before you begin make sure your ice cream bowl is completely frozen, at least 12 hours, preferably 24 hours. Store it in the coldest part/back of the freezer.
  2. In a medium saucepan on medium heat, combine coconut milk and vanilla. Whisk together until warm, almost hot to touch. Sprinkle in tapioca starch one tablespoon at a time, whisking thoroughly. Continue whisking mixture on medium heat for 5 minutes, until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes.
  3. While the coconut milk is cooling, make strawberry sauce: mash the quartered strawberries in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a low boil then reduce heat and simmer; sprinkle over 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, mash strawberries and continue cooking for 5 minutes until thickened and juicy. Transfer to a heat proof bowl and cool in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  4. Add cooled coconut milk to the bowl of the food processor with cashew butter, maple syrup and 1/2 of the strawberry mixture; blend until smooth – scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  5. Churn ice cream according to manufacturer’s instructions. Once the ice cream gets to a soft-serve consistency, slowly add in the rest of the strawberry mixture, continuing to churn until strawberries are well incorporated.
  6. Transfer ice cream batter into a lined 5×7 loaf pan. Freeze an additional 4 hours, until ice cream is more solid. You can also enjoy more like a soft-serve right away, then freeze the rest for 4 hours. If freezing for longer than 24 hours, allow ice cream to sit on the counter for 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
