With Veganuary coming to a close we want to show you our favorite Dairy free ice cream!

There are many ways to make delicious dairy-free ice cream at home, but one simple and proven approach to creating a healthy version of this cool, sweet treat begins with the following essential ingredients:

  • 3 cups dairy-free milk (coconut, almond, cashew, sesame, etc.)
  • 1/3 - 1/2  cup natural sweetener (maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey, etc.)*
  • Flavoring to taste (vanilla, cinnamon, cacao powder, maca, mint extract, etc.)
  • Add-ins of choice (berries, peaches, banana, cacao nibs, nuts or seeds, chocolate chunks, etc.)*

The type of *sweetener, flavoring and add-ins that you choose will affect the sugar content of the ice cream. Keep nutrition in balance by choosing wisely. The Academy of Culinary Nutrition https://www.culinarynutrition.com/20-best-dairy-free-ice-cream-recipes/  has a variety of recipes for you to choose from. Below is one of our favorites. Be sure to include your kids in the ice-cream making fun!

Dairy Free Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

  • 1 cup raw cashews (150g), soaked overnight, washed & drained
  • 1 cup coconut cream (250ml)
  • 1/3 cup coconut nectar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 tsp Spirulina
  • Few drops peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs (or raw chocolate grated)

Preparation
You don't necessarily need an ice cream maker. While these machines do whip air into your frozen desserts, producing a fluffier result, you could easily put your ice cream mixture directly into the freezer instead.

  • Blend cashews, coconut cream and coconut nectar in a blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Add coconut oil and blend until combined
  • Add peppermint oil (add more or less to liking) and spirulina and blend until combined.
  • Pour into metal loaf tin. Stir through cacao nibs.
  • Cover tin with foil and freeze overnight until set.
  • Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving to soften.
