Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice Cream is easy to make at home and is a healthy treat!
Heads up! This post was originally published in June 2013. We aren’t moving. 🙂 Photos were updated May 2018.
I’m sitting amid half-packed boxes getting ready for our big move this weekend. I can’t believe this week is finally here! (Remember this post when I announced we were moving? It’s been such a long, busy 9 months since then!) Even though I have a to-do list longer than I can handle, I wanted to do a quick post about this dairy-free strawberry ice cream.
A friend and I went strawberry picking a few weeks ago and I brought home eight quarts of delicious, organic strawberries. I’ve been in strawberry heaven!
I made this Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice Cream for Meghan when she was asking for ice cream. The best part is that she doesn’t seem to notice or care that the homemade ice cream is not like the kind we get when we take her to the ice cream shoppe. When I make “ice cream” at home, it’s always fruit based, non-dairy, and with much less sugar than regular ice cream.
Although the texture isn’t exactly like churned ice cream, not needing an ice cream maker makes up for it. This is such a simple recipe. I used full-fat coconut milk to mimic the creaminess of heavy cream used in traditional ice cream.
You can taste the coconut flavor, so if you don’t like it, try substituting another type of milk. It takes a while for the mixture to freeze into ice cream, at least 3 hours, but it’s worth the wait for this healthy treat!
