All-natural dairy-free ice cream recipes that are rich and dreamy. The entire cookbook is also gluten-free, grain-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan-friendly.

Alisa Fleming ~ Another dairy-free ice cream recipe book – what an amazing summer! Every book is different though, and this one is no exception. Kelly Brozyna, the author of Dairy-Free Ice Cream, focuses on creamy and healthy. She uses rich ingredients like cashews, coconut (naturally), and hempseeds to make luxurious and completely dairy-free ice cream. For sweetening, Kelly sticks to coconut sugar, medjool dates, apple juice, and honey or agave.

This is seriously my kind of dairy-free ice cream recipe book. I never loved dairy cream, but do adore the rich flavors and textures of cashews and coconut, especially when combined with natural sweeteners and frozen to create dreamy bliss. In fact, many of the recipes look like ones that could have come out of my own kitchen!

Here is a random sampling of the recipes you will find in Dairy-Free Ice Cream:

  • Pecan Praline Ice Cream
  • Sunbutter Fudge Ripple Ice Cream
  • Spiced Apple Tea Ice Cream
  • Frozen Coffee or Tea Lattes (pictured below)
  • Brownie Batter Ice Cream
  • Carrot Cake Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies (for ice cream sandwiches!)
  • Orange Cream Frozen Yogurt
  • Almond and Chocolate Protein Pudding Pops
  • Strawberry Rhubarb Sherbet (pictured …)

Another thing that I love about this cookbook is the simplicity. There is an intro that covers ingredients and tips, but then Kelly goes straight into the recipes. Her recipe writing is also all about flow. You won’t see complicated lists of instructions, but rather quick instructions placed within the ingredients to keep you moving in the kitchen and done prepping the ice cream within minutes.

In terms of diets, Dairy-Free Ice Cream is also gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, peanut-free, and vegan-friendly. Most of the recipes even boarder on (or could be called) paleo.

Dairy-Free Ice Cream is available on Amazon, but Kelly also sells her entire cookbook collection direct on The Spunky Coconut.

  1. I would love to have this book! I’ve been eyeing it all summer. What can be better than healthy, dairy free ice cream!

  2. We have had to make the shift to dairy free in our house and have been hunting for some great ice cream recipes. This would be a welcome addition to our new dairy free kitchen!

  3. I have always loved ice cream and was very disappointed when I developed a dairy allergy about 10 years ago. Fast forward to soy and coconut ice cream made today and i am in heaven. My husband is a chef. He loves to experiment and me being dairy free is a good challenge for him. I would love this book so he can make homemade ice cream for me. πŸ™‚

  4. I would love to have a copy of your book. I like ice cream!! I’m lactose intolerant since a year and don’t find a good ice cream. Would love to have a good recipe to make my own.

    I would like this book simply because I need it. My Daughter, which is 10, just recently found out that she is allergic to soy, sesame, corn products and peanuts. We had to change her diet basically over night and have had a hard time finding other things she could eat, let’s be honest, soy and corn products are in just about everything. So needless to say she was happy she could still have dairy…she loves cheeses and ice cream πŸ™‚ Well, just a couple months ago, she started having stabbing pains in her tummy and I noticed it was after she ate dairy foods. Testing has confirmed, she is lactose intolerant πŸ™ No cheese, no ice cream, no milk. I have been having such a hard time trying to find things she could now and I am at a loss. So to be able to have reciepe book of ice cream would be amazing. I have 2 other daughters and so it is hard for me to say you can , you can’t have, you can have. I just want my daughter to be happy again. Thank you, God bless

  6. My son and husband love ice cream – bot have a dairy allergy! I’d love the book to make them something they love!

  7. I am so excited to see that a book like this exists, and would love to have a copy for our kitchen! My children and I are allergic to dairy, gluten and eggs so almost everything we eat needs to be made at home. As the kids get older, its been challenging to find alternatives that will allow them to experience the same pleasures (like ice cream) as their friends. I would love to be able to make these recipes with them!

  8. I would LOVE to have this book so I can make and enjoy (and share) all those wonderful, *safe* ice cream recipes!! Being, Dairy, Gluten, Soy and Refined Sugar Free makes it challenging to find safe and great tasting foods and treats! Sharing this on my FB Wall! πŸ˜€

  9. I would love to have this cookbook, because even though I can’t have dairy or soy, every so often I really want some ice cream. The grocery doesn’t always carry a brand I can eat. i love coconuts and cashews and hemp seeds, so why not make my own ice cream? Then I can have whatever I want whenever I want, and I know what’s in the ice cream!

  10. I really need a cookbook that I can make something sweet. But if it calls for eggs I can not use it,for I’m allergic to dairy and eggs.Thanks

  11. This book looks great – I have a severe lactose intollerance and love ice cream!! I would love to have this for me and to share with my family!

  12. I’d LOVE a copy of this – I’ll be hosting some veg potlucks in the near future and think non-dairy ice creams and desserts would be a wonderful segway into compassionate eating for those who attend! πŸ™‚

    I would like this cookbook because I enjoy baking and I have so far found only one ice cream recipe. And even that was mediocre. Maybe I’m just not looking hard enough. But, I enjoy baking and I wish for more dairy-free baking options. My family has recently converted to coconut milk. So, any thing helps with a further transition into dairy-free. It’s been a little bit a of a struggle for us. So, if we have even a dessert cookbook, that would help greatly.

    Also, I have shared the link on my facebook page.

  14. Charles Herring on

    I would love to have this book and be able to eat sweets. Also I will be able to eat healthy and not worry about my dairy allergy.

  15. I would love a copy of this because I grew up with ice cream being an integral part of family functions, and of life! Being soy and dairy-free makes ice cream eating an unhappy experience (especially because I don’t like coconut, the only “base” I’ve been able to find in stores). I would love to be able to make my own, knowing where ingredients come from, and being an active participant in making the ice cream, not just eating it! πŸ™‚ Thank you for the hope to once again have tasty ice cream!
