15 Dairy Free Ice Cream Recipes You’ll Love

By Neesha Gill

Ask anyone around the world how they like to cool off in the summer heat, and chances are they’ll answer one of two ways: swimming, or ice cream. But what to do if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant? Or, just find dairy kind of gross?

Luckily, we’ve found a great variety of dairy free ice cream recipes, ranging from refreshing sorbets to decadent, creamy indulgences, so you can still enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures, but without the guilt.

9.  Vegan Snickers Ice Cream

This is pure decadence at its finest, perfect for those of you with a sweet tooth. You can be as generous as you want with the caramel and chocolate, but personally, I think it’s best when it’s just a little bit salty…

Healthy chocolate ice cream you say? We never thought that was possible until we stumbled across Jessica Hylton’s chocolate avocado ice cream recipe. Whilst the two may not seem like a typical combination, this wonderful creation really works.

13. Refreshing Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This ice cream is made creamy by coconut milk. And for anyone who says ‘aw, but it’s so high in fat’ – just remember it’s a heck of a lot better than dairy cream! It’s also got highly antioxidant cocoa pips, and is the perfect ending to a garlicky meal.
