When I was younger my mom and aunt would make homemade raspberry ice cream every 4th of July. I loved having that tradition in my family. Luckily for me, I can make homemade ice cream whenever I want to now, instead of only on the 4th of July.
Making ice cream is pretty easy nowadays with the ice cream makers that you can purchase. You do have to wait a while for the ice cream to freeze, but it’s definitely worth the wait.
There are SO many different flavors of ice cream that you can make. In my list I have tried to include a variety of different flavored dairy-free coconut milk ice cream recipes. I’m sure one of these options will suit your taste.
There are many different brands/types of coconut milk that you can purchase. Our favorite brand is Natural Value because it doesn’t have additives. You can read reviews about it here.

Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Ice Cream Recipes
1. Caramelized Banana Pecan Ice Cream – My Natural Family
This ice cream is made without any added sugar and it only has four ingredients so that means it’s pretty easy to make. I adore ice cream but my waistline sure doesn’t like it. But I can eat all I want of this because there is no sugar in it. If you’ve never tried brown butter before, you really should try it on this recipe. It gives it a deep nutty flavor; you could almost say it tastes caramelized.
2. Strawberry Rhubarb Swirl Ice Cream – My Natural Family
Strawberries – Bananas – Rhubarb – Coconut Milk
This ice cream is made with coconut milk which makes it really creamy plus it’s dairy-free. The bananas and strawberries make it sweet and flavorful and the rhubarb gives it a little tangy kick. Five ingredients that are all good and natural makes it’s both easy to make and healthy. If you really don’t like rhubarb you could substitute another fruit that you think would be good. I would consider raspberries or peaches or extra strawberries.
3. Wendy’s Copycat Frosty – My Natural Family
Banana – Ice Cubes – Cacao Powder – Coconut Milk
Everyone loves Wendy’s Frostys, right? Well everyone I know does. The problem is that they definitely are NOT Paleo. All that processed STUFF. So I set out to make my own homemade copycat frosty recipe. These are yum yum yummy and easy to make. They are also great for anyone on a dairy-free diet.
4. Maple Pumpkin Ice Cream – Baked By Rachel
My brothers and sisters in their teenage years worked at Arctic Circle. It’s a fast food place to eat that is visited most for their shakes. In the fall they always have pumpkin shakes around Halloween and Thanksgiving time. They are actually really good. This recipe reminds me of those pumpkin shakes. I bet it’s just as good and might actually even taste better since it’s made with real ingredients. It sure is a heck of a lot healthier, I’m sure of that.
5. Pistachio Chocolate Chip Coconut Ice Cream – Cook Eat Paleo
I didn’t realize that pistachios are so naturally green like they are in this ice cream. I guess we learn something every day. At least every once in a while. I’m going to have to try this ice cream since I’m even allergic to almond milk. I can eat coconut milk and cashew milk. I love the eat pistachio nuts so I’m sure I’d love this.
6. Strawberry Coconut Milk Ice Cream – Baked By Rachel
Coconut Milk – Sugar – Vanilla – Egg Yolks – Strawberries
This is a really simple ice cream recipe. You know how I tell? There are only six ingredients. The less things you have to find and measure and clean up means less work. I prefer the simple flavor of strawberries anyway. What about you? Do you like simple flavors or do you prefer a whole lot of ingredients mixed together?
7. Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream – 24 Carrot Kitchen
This is a really really simple ice cream recipe. It only has three ingredients to find measure and mix. It’s sure to be a favorite. I am who doesn’t like chocolate ice cream? I know, the answer to that, my dad. Yup he doesn’t like chocolate ice cream, and yes sometimes I think that’s pretty weird. It’s a good thing we all aren’t the same or this life would be pretty darn boring. If we all only ate chocolate ice cream we wouldn’t know what strawberry or peach or vanilla tasted like. Boring
8. Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream – Two Peas And Their Pod
Coconut Milk – Sugar – Cocoa Powder – Oreo Cookies
I was wondering how you make this without the Oreo cookies getting soggy and gross. She says to add the cookies for the last 5 minutes of churning. Now, that wouldn’t work in my ice cream maker. I’m sure there are some that it would work for though. My ice cream maker is like this: Nostalgia ICMP400WD 4-Quart Electric Wood Bucket Ice Cream Maker I bet it would work to make it in one like this though: Cuisinart ICE-21R Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker.
9. No-Churn Chocolate Ice Cream – Minimalist Baker
You don’t need an ice cream maker to make this! The whipped coconut cream mixed with the dates to sweeten it make good things happen. It makes the base so creamy that you don’t need to churn it. When you add the cocoa you end up with a chocolate mousse base that is fluffy and freezes up beautifully. You can’t go wrong with just 5 ingredients and 30 minutes prep time.
