Homemade Vegan Ice Cream Recipe – 3 Ways (1)

Chocolate, Vanilla or Cookies and Cream? According to this super-scintillating article I read about the most searched for ice cream flavors in the USA, those are the three most popular flavors of ice cream.

I honestly thought it was Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. Oh boy! Anyone else right there with me? Now I’m totally kicking myself for not creating a cookies and cream vegan ice cream flavor for you. Next year, perhaps? 😉

Meanwhile, has anyone figured out what Superman ice cream flavor is? Comment below and let me know, folks in Michigan! <– This is apparently your most searched for flavor. How extra. Lol.

Anywho, let’s get today’s show on the road, because: folks want vegan ice cream! And they want it, like, right now.

Homemade Vegan Ice Cream Recipe – 3 Ways

How will we learn how to make homemade vegan ice cream today? Let us count the ways:

  • Way #1: Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Way #2: Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Way #3: Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream

How to Make Vegan Ice Cream with an Ice Cream Maker? Without an Ice Cream Maker?

All of today’s vegan ice cream recipes call for an ice cream maker. But, they don’t require it. So why even use an ice cream maker? Because: ice cream is fluffier, lighter and creamier with a delicious texture when you use an ice cream maker. However, we’ve all been there: you want homemade vegan ice cream, but you don’t want to use an ice cream maker. So skip that step and simply pour your vegan ice cream mixture into a freezer-friendly container and chill until firm. That’s it!

Now, are you ready to count all the ways we can have vegan ice cream? (Or at least 3 of them?) Let’s do it! P.S. If you’re looking for keto low carb vegan ice cream, many are listed below the 3rd way for vegan ice cream. 🙂

Recommended Tools for the Best Vegan Ice Cream Recipe

  • Ice Cream Maker+Extra Freezer Bowls: I’ve been using the heck out of my ice cream maker! And tbh, I have several of them… 😉 These extra freezer bowls come in so handy–I can freeze multiples in advance and make several batches of vegan ice cream in a row without having to wait 24 hours for the first one to freeze.
  • My FavoriteFood Processor: this is literally my all-time favorite food processor. I use it for everything from making homemade nut butters, no bake recipes and for all of my ice cream recipes. It’s durable, easy to use and so friggin’ reliable.
  • Raw Cashew Butter: the #1 most important ingredient in this recipe. Yep, more important than coconut cream! (Even though you should not skip that lol.) It’s THE best ingredient for preventing icy texture in your homemade ice cream. Better than guar gum, better than vodka. Yes, I’ve tried it all! I prefer using raw over roasted because raw has a much subtler taste. Roasted cashew butter makes itself known. Ha! If you’ve got roasted cashew butter, try using that in myhomemade cashew coconut milk vegan ice creamrecipe.
