Dairy Free Ice Cream
If you’re looking for dairy-free ice cream recipes, I love using a coconut milk base, cashews, or hemp, rather than the usual heavy cream.
Vegan Ice Cream
For those of you wondering, what is vegan ice cream, it is a frozen treat made without dairy or eggs. Vegan ice cream recipes typically use coconut milk or nut milk as a base.
All of my ice cream recipes have a vegan option because so many people I know are on a Dairy-Free Diet.

If you’re wondering “is ice cream gluten free”, the answer is yes, it often is. But if you’re buying ice cream be sure to read labels to check the ingredients.
Rest assured, all of my ice cream recipes are gluten-free. You’ve come to the right place because all of the recipes in my three cookbooks and on this website are 100% gluten free.

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared this 2-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream in 2017.
I’m curious whether you’ve also tried this recipe in a high-powered blender (like vitamix)…how do you decide when to use a food processor vs blender? Thanks!
Michelle, thanks for your comment –I don’t think that would work. Blender is to process liquids and food processor is for solids. Ice cream is a solid –I don’t want liquid ice cream :-)

Patti, that sounds fantastic!
