Coconut Milk Ice Cream


This coconut milk ice cream will change the way you think about summer dessert. Simple, delicious, and 100% customizable, this dairy-free, date-sweetened treat is my new favorite ice cream. I created this recipe starting with two simple ingredients: a can of coconut milk, and 100% pure, organic vanilla bean powder (you could also use a vanilla bean). To make the ice cream just a little sweet, I added some soaked dates and then enhanced the flavor with a splash of vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt. Just 5 ingredients and there you have it– the best coconut milk ice cream ever!

A couple serving suggestions…

  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend on high until completely smooth.
  2. Place the mixture in your ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer´s directions.
  3. If you do not have an ice cream maker, you could transfer the blended mixture in a freezer-safe air tight container and freeze until solid!
