Vegan Ice Cream Recipe Tips

  • Believe it or not, but you don’t even need an ice cream maker to make homemade vegan ice cream. Instead, you can use the freezer method as I’ve detailed in this post on how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.
  • However, if you prefer to use a machine, then the ice cream maker that I use is this Cuisinart frozen yogurt-ice cream model that sells for less than $70 on Amazon.
  • In general, you’ll need about 2 cups of liquid to make the base of your ice cream recipe. You can simply use a 15-ounce can of full-fat coconut milk for most recipes.
  • But, if you want a lighter version without sacrificing too much in terms of texture and mouthfeel, you can always dilute the coconut milk by mixing it with almond milk or oat milk. 
  • Feel free to get creative, experiment with different flavors, and enjoy the results. Don’t miss these yummy gluten-free waffle cones either.

Now, onto the recipes!
