I’m extremely fond of ice cream. I mean it really doesn’t phase me whether it’s Summer, Fall, Spring, or Winter. I will happily sit in my living room with a bowl of ice cream as I watch the snowflakes fall to the ground. Rocky Road, Cotton Candy, Strawberry, Chocolate, Peanut butter, Pistachio.. you name it, i love it….give me all the flavors! Ice cream is always in season. So, today I’m sharing my Non-Dairy Coconut Cherry Ice Cream. It’s so easy! It only has two ingredients!
I’m using So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Creamer in French Vanilla as my base. This not only makes it a non-dairy ice cream but, it also eliminates the need for any other added ingredients (except for the fruit!) because it’s perfectly delicious, sweet, and creamy on its own!
So, I’ve been toying with the idea of making a non-dairy version for awhile now. This was my first time trying coconut milk creamer and I was blown away by how amazing the flavor is. It is so smooth. By adding the cherries as our fruit of choice, it’s the perfect addition of tart and sweet.
Cherries are one of the healthiest fruits you can consume. They’re full of antioxidants, which can help fight against ageing. They can help ward off diseases. Plus they are even a source of melatonin. So, you can actually feel good about eating a bowl of this sweet & tart, creamy “ice cream” right before bed!
Non-Dairy Coconut Cherry Ice Cream
To begin, I mixed one quart of Coconut Milk Creamer with a cup of cherries in the blender. I poured that right into a loaf pan.
Separately, I pureed another cup of the cherries. Then, I swirled that puree into the creamy coconut-cherry mixture already in the loaf pan. Finally, I added some chopped cherries as well. Covering it loosely I placed it into the freezer.
Usually, it freezes after about six hours. I ended up leaving it in overnight! It was the perfect consistency the next day. I honestly couldn’t believe how amazing it turned out. You can’t even tell that it’s dairy-free, the coconut helps keep it creamy!
Using the Vanilla Coconut Creamer as a base you can pretty much create whatever combination you want. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or peaches? You can use fresh fruits or frozen. Whatever you’re craving! It’s an easy, go to recipe!
