Anyone who’s familiar with my blog (or indeed, my book) knows how obsessed I am with vegan ice cream. I particularly love coconut milk ice cream which is the base for most of these recipes.
I’ve chosen the most gorgeous ice creams from some of the best vegan bloggers to share with you (and thrown in a few of my own, for good measure!)
Making these ice creams without an ice cream maker
After looking at these photos, you will be dying to make your own but don’t worry if you don’t have an ice cream maker – many of these recipes are no churn or are easy to make without one.
The general rule is to either freeze a stand mixer bowl and use the paddle attachment to “churn” the ice cream or to whip it as much as you can with a whisk or blender, before freezing.
As long as you get lot’s of air into it, it should be alright.
Anyway, onto the recipes… Enjoy!
