One of my favourite parts about summer is definitely the endless amounts of ice cream. I have very fond memories of the ice cream truck driving through my neighbourhood as a child. For some reason he went very quickly, so you kind of had to be posed by the door, listening out for him around the same time every Thursday.  Then there’s the time I had gelato three times in one day while in Venice. Needless to say, I love ice cream. So I knew that I needed to make some more homemade ice cream this summer. I decided to use one of my favourite all time ingredients (spoiler alert: strawberries) to make this Vegan Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream, and I am so happy that I did.

This vegan strawberry coconut ice cream is one of my favourites yet. The coconut cream makes it incredibly creamy, the strawberry flavour is really prevalent in it and the maple syrup adds a delicious sweetness to it. I love that it isn’t over sweet, but just right to stay refreshing for the summer. The vanilla bean actually ties it all in. It added a huge amount of flavour to it and these beautiful specks of vanilla.

I made this ice cream a no churn recipe because I don’t think you should need to have an ice cream maker to indulge in such deliciousness! It’s so easy to make, and as long as you remember to whisk it, it won’t be icy. Now go forth, and make ALL the ice cream!

Ingredients
  • 4 cups frozen strawberries
  • 28 oz coconut cream from cans of coconut milk* see notes below on how to make coconut cream from coconut milk (two 13.4 ounce cans)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, split and seeded
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
Instructions

Instructions

  • Add the coconut cream to a food processor or blender and blend for a minute or two.
  • Add the frozen strawberries, coconut cream, vanilla extract, and maple syrup into a food processor or blender and mix together until thick and creamy and combined.

Ice Cream Machine

  • Place the ice cream base into a freezer-safe container in the refrigerator for 2 hours to set up before freezing.
  • Freeze the ice cream according to the manufacturer's instructions for your machine.

No Machine/No Churn

  • Place all ice cream base into a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer and allow to freeze for 1 hour. Ensure it is covered.
  • Whisk slightly every 20 minutes to avoid it getting too icy for 3-4 hours. It should be getting thicker after each whisking, until it's firm enough to scoop.
  • To eat: serve immediately or when you are ready for it (after it's been in the freezer), thaw for 5-10 minutes and scoop with an ice cream scoop.
NOTES
  1. This recipe is vegan,  gluten free.
  2. HOW TO STORE
    Store this ice cream in a freeze safe container. For the best taste and texture it is advised that you store it no longer than 2 weeks.
  3. A FEW NOTES
    1. You can buy coconut cream or make it from full fat coconut milk. Place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Remove, turn upside down, open and pour off the liquid coconut water on top (you can drink it or use it in a smoothie). Then use the thick coconut cream that is left in the recipe.

    Hi Jessica!
    I tried the recipe but my coconut cream curdled after I blended the strawberries in. Would you know why and how I can avoid it?

    Thanks!!

    • Hi Smrithi,

      Let me try and help! Was your food processor hot by chance? There’s also a chance it was the brand of coconut milk – which brand did you use?

        Thank you for responding!
        I used a regular blender which wasn’t hot. Also, my coconut cream was bought from Trader Joe’s.

        • Hi!

          Of course! Sadly I’ve heard this complaint a lot from Trader Joe’s coconut cream across several blogs, so it was definitely their coconut milk that caused that. I would recommend trying another brand (like Thai Kitchen) and trying it again!
