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. One thing I noticed about this recipe is that it falls into a Whole30 Dessert recipe. Ok, now, you’re probably thinking “What desserts can I have on Whole30?” Now, Whole30 guidelines are pretty strict about not eating dessert. I personally would prefer to eat a real food dessert than break down and eat a box of krispy kremes. Ok, enough about that!
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:
- Fresh or frozen strawberries
- Full-fat coconut milk
- Medjool dates
- Almond milk, cashew or hemp milk
- Lemon juice
- Pure vanilla extract
How to Make Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe
Put the strawberries and coconut milk in a blender and puree until smooth.
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.
I love Kelly’s recipes!
Excellent recipe! I’ve never tried dates in an ice cream recipe before, but it sounds fantastic!
Ice cream means summer for sure!

I love exploring creative new ways to make “ice cream” without the dairy. It’s 109 here in the desert today, and summer has barely started! I’d sure love a copy of that book. 🙂
Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Ooooh! This looks very yummy. I just got a ton of strawberries out of my mom’s garden. Now I know what to do with them all. Any ideas, though, on what I can use instead of the dates? Because of a yeast allergy i can’t have any dried fruits.
My friend is lactose intolerant and I promised to make her a dairy-free ice cream cake for her birthday. This would make it so much easier! 😀
I LOVE the Spunky Coconut! Thanks for sharing this recipe, would absolutely love to have this book.
Most dairy free recipes seem overwhelming with so many steps. This sounds doable and delicious!
Wow!! This strawberry icecream looks delish! Can’t wait to try.
Need to learn to make these gluten free and dairy free! This looks amazing!
Looks so yummy! I really need an ice cream maker.
I would love to win this for my stepdaughter!
The one thing I miss the most about being dairy free is ice cream. I can’t wait to get this book!
Yummy! I ski cannot wait to eat this!
I have slowly been taking dairy out of my diet, but homemade ice cream did not sound promising. This sounds great!
This recipe looks divine as does the Spunky Coconut cookbook!
Thank you for sharing this recipe! I love ice cream and what could be better than fresh strawberry ice cream during the hot summer months? I also appreciate that it’s fruit-sweetened!
I LOVE ice cream and would love using these recipes!
Looks so good! I love ice cream but it hates my tummy so I clearly need this book!
This looks delicious! Can’t wait to try with fresh local strawberries! Thanks for sharing!
This looks so yummy! I absolutely love ice-cream! I might even try making it with blueberries, since I have them on hand! Thanks for the recipe!
This will be excellent for those hot summer days in California!
Sounds interesting. I am new to paleo in a sense. I am gluten intolerant and that lends itself nicely to paleo. I love to bake but it is a bother for GF stuff, soo much of it to put together so I mostly do veggies and protien. TY for recipe.
My family loves ice cream! (Who doesn’t, really.) I got an ice cream maker for a wedding gift 6 years ago and never used it once. I think my husband might have sold it at a garage sale…. I’m seriously considering getting a new one just to make this ice cream 🙂
NEED THIS BOOK! This looks amazing.
Looks delicious and easy. Must try it
Strawberries have been amazing already this year. Would love to make this! =)
would love to win this since i have cut out diary for the first time EVA! I’m struggling a bit especially when it comes to ice cream. i desperately miss the creamy richness of ice cream.

Love ice cream and miss it since going paleo. can’t wait until I can enjoy it again with this cookbook
Just made my first dairy free ice cream last night and it was amazing! I’d love to keep the recipes flowing….and the ice cream maker churning!
This book looks awesome!!
Going strawberry picking next week! Can’t wait to try this!
My ice cream maker arrived in the mail last week, and I am so excited to try every recipe in this book!
I loved the first version
Kelly is very creative with her recipes. The photographs always look so inviting.
Thank you for this opportunity.
What is Breve? (breve addict)
Breve is espresso with heavy whipping cream 🙂
Yum!! I can’t wait to try this!!
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.
I can’t wait to try this recipe! I would love to win the book!
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.
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.
Oh wow I have to get my hands on this book!
Everything on hand and ready to make this! WOOOO Thanks for doing this giveaway. LOVE your site!
:DROOL: I don’t know if this would be safe in my possession! Too dangerous! But I want it anyways!!!
Hope you are having a lovely day and thank you so much for the opportunity to win this book! With so many books I feel I need it would be nice to be able to get one for free. hahah plus, strawberry ice cream is my son’s FAVORITE!
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!
I would love some new dairy free ice cream ideas!
Is there a substitute for the full fat coconut milk other than condensed milk(not a fan of coconuts at all).
Heavy whipping cream would work.
