Looking for the perfect Paleo Ice Cream recipe? This Dairy-free Strawberry Ice Cream is a sweet dream and is vegan to boot!

Summer is here and I have only so many days to eat as much ice cream as possible.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who binges on the sweet, creamy stuff every time the temperature hits 70 degrees (that’s hot as Africa in Portland).

It had to be kismet that I got a copy of Kelly, of the Spunky Coconut‘s, new book Dairy-Free Ice Cream.  Inside are 75 delicious recipes for sweet treats and just a few gems that caught my eye are the Fried Banana Ice Cream, Salted Caramel Ice Cream, Rocky Road Ice Cream, Brownie Batter Ice Cream, Chocolate Whoopie Pie Cakes, and Honey Marshmallow Fluff.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, this book needs to be in your cookbook library now.  Thank the Universe you can’t gain weight from just looking at delicious sweets because I would have had to break out my stretchy pants after drooling all over this book for a solid day.

Now that I’ve told you how lovely this cookbook is, you can try out the divine Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe for this book.

What you’ll need for this Recipe:

How to Make  Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

Add the dates, almond, cashew, or hemp milk, lemon juice, vanilla extract.

Puree until smooth.

Freeze for about an hour or refrigerate until cold.

Pour into the ice cream machine and churn per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Eat right away or freeze until hard for pretty scoops.

    We love strawberry icecream….actually any type of icecream lol but strawberry is one of our family favorites. I’ve tried making it in the icecream maker before but that was before Paleo with sugar and so on….I’d love to try this with the almond milk and dates.

    Since giving up dairy for health reasons six months ago, I have remained dairy free and not even tried to incorporate a dairy free substitute and have avoided any recipe that would remind me of what I was missing and get me back to the two things I love the most, ice cream and cheese. I am at a point now where I think I can start substituting for the things I miss the most and make things dairy free. These recipes sound awesome. I would like to add to my new collection of healthy cookbooks.

    This would be great! My son (3 years old) was recently diagnosed with Crohns and it seems dairy is one of his triggers for flare-ups so I have been experimenting with dairy free ice cream. This book would help me a lot. Also, I see in the strawberry ice cream recipe above that there is no refined sugar added and I am always looking for a way to sweeten food with as little sugar as possible. Also, I have to slip veggies into my kids diet and ice cream (believe it or not) is a way to hide greens and other veggies.5 stars

  • June 11, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    I need to look into getting this book – our daughter needs to really watch how much dairy she eats and ice cream is a big trigger for her. It would be nice to make some at home for her, rather than buying the really pricey non-dairy pints at the store.

    I love strawberry ice cream but it is surprisingly hard to find a vegan one in the store. The recipe looks easy and delicious, cannot wait to try it.

    I just recently made some strawberry mint ice cream and that got me on a total ice cream kick!

    Is there a substitute for the full fat coconut milk other than condensed milk(not a fan of coconuts at all).
