Avoid dairy, refined sugar, and trans fat by making this healthy and delicious Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice Cream.
Welcome back to ice cream week. Today I am sharing with you a dairy-free strawberry ice cream that happens to be refined sugar-free as well. You may think this recipe is not very flavorful by the title, but I guarantee it tastes as good as a real frozen dessert and a great option to avoid dairy, sugar and trans fat in your ice cream.
This dairy-free ice cream is vegan and a really big deal because it is very creamy. The coconut milk helps to create almost the same texture than a traditional ice cream. Now, I have to be honest. If you don’t like the flavor of the coconut, you may not like this recipe because you can really taste the coconut flavor in there. However, to reduce the coconut flavor you can add only one cup of coconut milk and another cup of water. You will dilute the coconut milk. But if you love coconut flavor like me, this is a perfect ice cream recipe for you.
I chose to use strawberries for this recipe because it makes a really yummy combo with the coconut milk. And if you have really sweet strawberries, you can reduce the amount of honey in this recipe. It will be very flavorful and a great snack for your kids. I made this strawberry ice cream recipe a few days ago and my 1 year and a half old nephew loves it and to be honest, it wasn’t only him who enjoyed this recipe. My entire family really like it. This strawberry icecream was gone in two days.
One last tip before you jump to the recipe. Since this isn’t a very fatty ice cream, it will need to be in a counter to soften for about 30 minutes before you serve it. I hope you enjoy it!
