Creamy Dreamy Dairy Free Ice Cream


There is just something nostalgic about making your own ice cream.

I say that this is even  a recipe that requires no ice cream maker.
I have chosen to make strawberry ice cream and peach ice cream.
This ice cream is over the top!
Even if you are not on a restricted diet you will love this creamy ice cream.
The flavor is second to none.
I don’t like bland food.  No bland here  🙂
This ice cream is not only dairy free, it’s egg free and refined sugar free as well.
It’s Paleo diet friendly for all my Paleo peeps out there 🙂
This is a favorite to make all summer long, but quite honestly we love ice cream year round.
I am learning time and again that even people on restricted diets can still feel
like they are indulging while eating healthy alternatives.
In fact, your non health nut peeps are going to be jealous
when they see you sit on the porch with your feet kicked up while you gulp down a whole dish…………..or two.  Little do they know that you are eating super foods like coconut, bananas, peaches, and strawberries.
They will think you are eating a “naughty ” dish of cream because
it looks as good as the real deal and in my opinion tastes even better.
But..you don’t have to take my word for it.
What are you waiting for?
Let’s get in the kitchen and make some Creamy Dreamy Dairy Free Ice Cream!

Ingredients:

4  sliced frozen bananas
( after peeling bananas, slice them and put them in a ziplock bag and put in freezer until they are frozen )

3/4 cup  frozen strawberries  OR  3/4  cup frozen peach slices
(Try to use peaches and strawberries that are very ripe for a richer taste)

1 cup of canned  coconut milk

1 Tablespoon. vanilla extract

5-6 squirts Sweetleaf strawberry kiwi flavored water drops
( if making strawberry ) OR 5-6 squirts of the peach mango drops ( if making peach )

Instructions:

  1. For best results you will want to use a food processor.  Put the frozen bananas into the processor.
  2. Add the frozen strawberries OR the frozen peaches
  3. Add the 1 cup of  coconut milk
  4. Add the vanilla
  5. Blend until smooth for about 3-4 minutes
  6. Scoop out of food processor and put into an 8  1/2  X  4  1/2  metal bread pan that is lined with parchment paper
  7.  Cover ice cream pan with parchment paper and foil and put ice cream into freezer for about 2-3 hours. I like it best when frozen for about 2 hours because it’s a tad bit firmer than soft serve ice cream and super easy to scoop.
    IMPORTANT ******* If you want this ice cream to be CREAMY, then eat about 2-3  hours after putting it in the freezer.
    So…………….if you have some special guests over and want to WOW them with this ice cream, plan accordingly.
    I promise you, they won’t be disappointed!

~~ I like to serve this delicious creamy dairy free ice cream in a wine glass, it looks so elegant.
If you end up freezing for longer than 3 hours, take the ice cream out ahead of time,
maybe 30-45 minutes or so to make it softer for scooping easier.
This is a popular treat in my house.
I have had people who don’t want nothing to do with eating healthy be instantly WOWED when they ate the first bite.
They loved it!  I try to always keep a bag of 4 sliced frozen bananas in the freezer so I am ready to make ice cream any time 🙂  You can also enjoy some gluten free cake to go with this ice cream too!  🙂

Enjoy!  Please drop a comment and let me know what you think after indulging in a bowl!
