3 Vegan Ice Cream Recipes

Ice cream, I scream, we all scream together!!! That exactly what I did when I discovered I could eat ice cream again! In recent years I have been suffering with my stomach and I have had digestive issues. Ice cream had not been a food I had wanted to eat until I discovered vegan ice cream. I started to make my own versions of ice creams I thought my little family, of course, and I would enjoy. These are easy to make and so tasty. Plus there is no cooking nor fancy ice cream machines involved. (Only if you want to use a fancy ice cream machine!) Over the year I have made a variety and I thought I would share our favourites with you.

Pineapple and Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream

My son Ted and I are not really big fans of mint products. I have never really liked mint sweets nor chocolate. Ted is the same. My homeopath Dawn Waterhouse suggested to Ted to eat more mint to help aid his digestion. Ted and I were repulsed by this suggestion.

Mint chocolate would not be our first choice but I decided to give this ice cream a go. Dawn suggested trying mint in an ice cream and I’m so pleased I did. I think adding the pineapple helped to sweeten this dessert beautifully and the mint made it very fresh tasting. Well worth a try.

Salted ‘Datey’ Caramel Ice Cream

When I was little I loved an ice cream treat, I would have eaten ice cream all day long if I was allowed. I think I would get so excited that most of the ice cream would end up round my mouth and not in my tummy.

Nowadays I tend not to eat ice cream from a local shop or stall anymore. Since giving up processed foods and sugars I like to experiment with making my own. There are quite a few ice cream recipes on my blog already but there is not one with dates in.

In the past I have made a lot of recipes using dates. It was Salted Datey Caramel everything during the Christmas period. I thought I had better leave making ice cream until the warmer months. So as the sun is shining here in the UK, I thought I better share this dish with you.

Peach and Date (Toffee) Coconut Ice Cream

On a hot summers day nothing beats a cold ice cream. Nowadays there are so many exotic flavours to choose from that it amazes me when we walk down the ice cream aisle at the supermarket. Sadly I cannot eat a lot of these new flavours. In recent years I have developed a gluten intolerance and I no longer eat processed foods and sugars.

So instead I enjoy making my own ice cream from scratch with healthier non-processed sugars. I have to be honest I was going to make this ice cream a slightly different way. I was actually going to make my Datey Caramel pieces which is quite hot to make, and with the weather being on the hotter side I decided against the idea.

Instead I decided to add dates as the toffee component. Personally, I think it works really well and I have to say it was a success in our house. I knew my husband would enjoy it as he loves anything with a bit of a chew to it. So this was right up his street. Also, it didn’t take much to persuade him to try it. As soon as I mentioned the date, toffee combo he was in there. If you love toffee or know someone who does then this is a recipe for you.

3 Vegan Ice Cream are always a hit in our house. My husband Howard, son Ted and I never say no to homemade vegan ice cream. So when I make these three flavours they are always eaten and enjoyed. Obviously, all the ingredients are freezable in these ice creams. I always remove our tub about 30 minutes to an hour before serving. Homemade ice cream isn’t as soft as normal ice cream but it’s just as delicious. However you decided to eat these ice creams, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
