    Looks great! I am far from vegan, but milk doesn’t agree with me so this is a great alternative! I have missed ice cream so much and buying a pint of coconut ice cream at the store is often $5!! What broke grad student can afford that??!?! lol This whole recipe costs half that. Thanks!

      Oh my gosh YES those little pints of coconut ice cream are SOOO expensive! I love to stock up on cans of coconut milk when they’re on sale – even more affordable! Hope you enjoy the recipe 🙂

    I’d love to see more non-dairy ice creams recipes with something other than coconut milk. A little more complicated is OK – my grandson is allergic to milk and SO wants to eat ice cream, but two other family members don’t like coconut!

      Thanks for the feedback! Can your grandson have eggs?

    Love the recipe – great for my friends who love coconut however my husband and I don’t really enjoy it that much. Would love to see more non-dairy ice cream recipes also.

      Hi! Please see under Quick Tips in the post: “Although I completely prefer to use an ice cream machine (this one or this KitchenAid attachment), If you don’t have one you can still make this recipe. Pour the blended mixture into a freezer-safe container, cover, freeze, and whisk vigorously every hour or so to aerate. Repeat until the desired consistency is achieved.”

    Sounds wonderful, I’m currently “curing” a bottle of vanilla bean infused vodka for home made vanilla extract. Do you think using it would give the creamier texture you mentioned? Thanks!

      Absolutely! That would work wonderfully.

    I have many dietary restrictions and hate the taste of coconut! Is there any chance of other alternative milks that aren’t soy such as almond milk? I would love to see a recipe like that! 🙂

      Thanks for your feedback! So far I haven’t had much luck with almond milk because it is pretty low-fat but I’ll keep trying for something without coconut.

    Is it still possible to use add-ins if I make it without an ice cream machine?

    Could you look at doing vegan chocolate chip cookies please? I’ve tried a couple of normal eggless recipes with vegan friendly butter instead but it’s not going so well =/
