How to Make Vegan Ice Cream

Dairy free, vegan ice cream, a delicious treat for the summer days, and a winner with kids too!

Making your own ice cream might seem daunting, but if you have an ice cream maker it really is very easy. What’s more, you avoid damaging vegetable oils, additives, preservatives, colourings, sugars, etc.

This is a lovely recipe. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients in a blender and then churn in an ice cream maker for 20 minutes before freezing. If you don’t own an ice cream maker, you can blend all the ingredients and then put it in the fridge for several hours – taking it out and mixing it with a fork every now and then until frozen.

  • 2 (400ml) cans full of coconut milk (put in fridge before use)
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
