Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Vegan Berry Ice Cream

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

This recipe for homemade berry ice cream is so simple and so delicious! It is a great alternative for those who are not able to (or choose not to) consume dairy. It is also suitable for those who are soy free and/or gluten free. It only takes 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes to make. Plus you don’t need a fancy ice cream maker; just a food processor. Additionally you can easily make your berry ice cream organic by using organic ingredients. Chances are once you try this recipe you’ll forever say goodbye to that overpriced organic vegan ice cream at the store and its long list of ingredients!

Ingredients:

2 cups of mixed berries (any combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) washed and stems removed

1 can of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream

8-10 dates, pitted (you can substitute sweetener of choice if you don’t like dates, but may need to play with the ratios)

Directions:

Combine berries and coconut milk in a container. Cover and place in freezer for about 3 hours. Place berries and milk mixture in food processor along with dates. Process for about 3 minutes or until it doubles in size. Be sure to process it long enough for it to be light and fluffy. Enjoy!

Tip: Try mixing in other frozen fruits to create your own flavors. Mango ice cream is another one of our favorites!
