Balsamic Strawberry and Basil Dairy-Free Ice Cream {Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free}

So I mentioned the other day how I’ve been exploring recipes with roasted balsamic strawberries. So far I’ve shared a recipe for a balsamic strawberry vegan yogurt, and now I wanted to tell you how to make a dairy-free ice cream out of it. Homemade ice cream is one of the best desserts ever — sooo much better than most of the thousand ingredient-laden commercial dairy-free ice creams. The good news is that dairy-free ice cream is actually one of the easiest desserts to adapt for a vegan diet, and this no-fuss recipe is hard to mess up. As for the flavor, strawberries and basil may seem strange to some, but it’s actually a really incredible flavor combination. Make that balsamic strawberries, and it only gets better :).

Balsamic Strawberry & Basil Dairy-Free Ice Cream Recipe:


1 batch roasted balsamic strawberries (see recipe here)
2 cans full fat coconut milk (chilled overnight)
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 handfuls fresh basil leaves


Pour all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Pour into your ice cream maker bowl and make according to your machine’s instructions. Or alternatively pour into a freezer safe container and allow it to freeze naturally, stirring it every 30 minutes of so for the first few hours.

      Hi Miachel — thanks very much! It is a really simple recipe that’s become a winner around here :)

      On a separate note, I tried leaving a comment on your site but it kept giving me an error message for some reason, so just wanted to say that your asparagus tart is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for another idea of what to do with all the wild asparagus growing around here :)
