I hope you know that just because you’ve gone vegan, this doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the deliciousness of a creamy cone of ice cream! There are lots of vegan ice cream brands out there, but my honest advice would be to try and make your own! The ingredients are accessible and the entire process is super easy!
You may have heard that the creamiest and most delicious ice cream is made with an ice cream maker. While this is true, it doesn’t mean you can’t still make some pretty amazing homemade ice creams and sorbets at home without any churning! Just pick your favorite base (coconut milk, banana or cashews are just some examples), your favorite flavor (be it any type of fruit, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla – the sky is the limit) and the toppings, if you want to!
In case you are using an ice cream maker, you just need to add your composition and the machine will take care of the rest. If you don’t own an ice cream maker – don’t worry! You can still throw everything in a high-speed blender and you’ll end up with a delicious sorbet ready in less than 5 minutes! Who would’ve thought that making your own vegan ice cream is so easy?
But you don’t need to trust me – just try and make your own! And because I want to get you inspired to try some delicious vegan ice cream recipes, here are 10 vegan ice cream recipes that are literally perfect for the hot summer days. From chocolate to coconut and raspberry, I’m sure you’ll find ice cream recipes for every taste! All of the recipes on my list are super delicious and, most importantly, super easy to make!
