Posts Tagged ‘Strawberry Ice Cream’

This is my first new recipe for dairy free ice cream this spring, but it probably won’t be my last.  I tried to make a strawberry flavor last year, but the coconut milk seemed to overpower the strawberry.  This recipe seems to be much more strawberry-er (not a word, I know) than the last one.  I think the addition of the strawberry preserves really help.

I found this recipe by doing a Google search and it is from chiliving.com.

2 cans coconut milk

2-3 cups strawberries (I used frozen and just let them thaw before using.)

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup strawberry fruit spread (unsweetened)

Put all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.  Pour most of the mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and process according to the directions of the ice cream maker.  I had about a cup of the mixture left over.

Since dairy free ice creams freeze to an extremely hard texture, it can be difficult to scoop out of the container.  I decided to try a trick I saw on Pinterest of scooping the ice cream into cupcake liners and freezing them that way.  It worked!  Now I have several scoops of ice cream in the freezer ready to eat at a moment’s notice.  Love it!

Around here, we love strawberries!  In fact, I can’t seem to get our little patch big enough.  Every year, I add a few more plants and we just keep on eating every one we can get our hands on.  C had requested that I try to make strawberry ice cream and it just so happened that the vegan ice cream book, “Lick It”, that I received as a birthday present last year, has a recipe.

C thought it turned out a little too sweet, so next time I will cut down on the sweetener, but it was so good and had such a strong strawberry flavor that I will definitely be making this again.

2 1/2 cups halved strawberries

14 oz. can coconut milk

1/2 cup granulated sugar or equivalent of agave syrup

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Note: I was out of vanilla.  I know…the horror!  Don’t worry though because I have since rectified the vanilla situation.
