I admit that, while I like ice cream, I don’t eat it much. It’s an unnecessary expense and I have problems processing dairy, so ice cream may taste great but it comes with the nightmare of borderline lactose intolerance. But, I also love to cook and started experimenting in the kitchen, and I came up with this great-tasting dairy-free ice cream made with almond milk!

Okay, so technically it’s more of an ‘ice milk‘, but that’s only if you make it the ‘easy way’. But I’ll get to that in a moment.

The first thing you should know about this post is that it’s the first of my healthy living posts, and it’s not only dairy free but can also be vegan and gluten free, as well. It all depends on you and your preferences and dietary needs.

This particular version of the recipe is raw, gluten & dairy free as well as being vegan (and tasty!) – so, what’s the easy way? Well, I’m about to show you!

Quick and easy vegan, dairy-free & gluten-free strawberry ice milk!

  • 1 C Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 C Almond Milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • Scant 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Liquid Stevia (to taste)
  • Plastic freezer container or ice cube tray
  • Blender, vitamix, magic bullet, food processor.
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat all ingredients until bubbles start to form. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the almond milk is pink and tastes like strawberries. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Pour cooled mixture into a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and store it in your freezer for 8 hours. Alternatively, you can pour the mixture into ice cube trays and cover with plastic wrap.
  3. Once the mixture is frozen, break it up into smaller pieces and blend it in a vitamix or blender until smooth. For a more ice cream-like texture, you can skip the blender and pour the mixture into your ice cream maker.

You can mix this recipe up – make it with agave, white table sugar, maple syrup, or any other sweetener that’s too your liking. It works with all sorts of fruit, and all sorts of dairy-free milk. And it’s so delicious!
