Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream

I am seriously obsessed with making Ice Cream. Normally, I make dairy free ice cream in my food processor with frozen bananas. Now, that I have a new ice cream maker, I am taking it up a notch with the consistency!

Strawberry Ice Cream

To make this Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream, I use Coconut Milk from the can and fresh strawberries.

You can also use frozen strawberries to make this ice cream as well.

Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients

1 Can Coconut Milk (not lite)

1 Cup Strawberries, cut in 1/2 or 1/4

10 drops stevia

5 drops monkfruit

You can use whatever alternative sugar or even just sugar into the ice cream. In fact, you can skip sweetener all together. For me, I like a little sweetness.

I chose to mix 2 different liquid sweeteners together to get the best possible flavor without being over powered by any specific sweetener flavor. You can use whatever you have for a sweetener.

Granulated Sweetener NOTE

If you only have a granulated sweetener, you will need to dissolve it in liquid before you make the ice cream otherwise it will be grainy and the texture will suffer.

Net Carbs – Keto Friendly Ice Cream

If you use stevia or monkfruit like we did in this recipe, the next carbs are 4 per serving making this ice cream Keto friendly

Canned Coconut Milk

The Best Canned Coconut Milk

The only way to get this ice cream right is by using canned coconut milk.

The best Paleo and Whole 30 Compliant Coconut Milk: Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk (available at Trader Joe’s), Whole Foods 360 Brand Coconut Milk (available at Whole Foods), Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk (available for purchase on Amazon), Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk (available for purchase on Amazon), and A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk (it can be found at various grocery stores).

Canned Coconut Milk is what you are looking for when you are making homemade ice cream in the food processor or blender. If you are the store trying to figure out what canned coconut milk to get, make sure to avoid sulfates. Avoid Potassium Metabisulfite.

It is a common ingredient in canned coconut milk and is not Whole30compliant. Don’t Be Afraid of Guar Guam. It is allowed on Whole30, but it is better if you can find a brand without any guar gum.

Canned coconut milk is extremely healthy. One cup of canned coconut milk has more than 10 percent of your daily value of iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

It’s also high in fat, but it contains a type of fat that provides health benefits. Learn more about Coconut Milk health benefits here on SF Gate site.
