Ice Cream Social: Part I | Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream! (Dairy-Free)

24 Jul

I love ice cream. It’s hands-down one of my favorite treats – be it summer or winter. I can handle dairy OK, but occasionally I need to lay off the cow, so I decided to try my hand at making vanilla coconut milk ice cream.

Why the Part I you ask? You’ll see! I’m working on something special and will all be part of my Ice Cream Social series 🙂 Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, try out the vanilla and let me know what you think! It’s creamy, soft-serve like texture right out of the ice cream maker is magical. And it’s not overly sweet!



2 cans full fat coconut milk

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

4 egg yolks

1/2 C coconut sugar

1 package (about 1 Tbsp) gelatin


In a saucepan over medium heat, heat coconut milk and vanilla. Don’t boil, but just heat – about 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks & coconut sugar.

Add egg + sugar mixture to coconut milk. Whisk to combine. Add gelatin and continue whisking until dissolved.

Turn off heat and allow mixture to cool before transferring to a separate bowl.

Cover & refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Set up ice cream maker and operate according to instructions. Allow ice cream to churn for at least 20-30 minutes or until it has a soft-serve consistency.

Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer-safe container & cover to serve later.  If moving to freezer, when serving remove from freezer & allow to soften for about 5 to be scoopable.

Top with your fav sauces, toppings, add ins & ENJOY!
