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. Jasmine Briones on

    I have recently became a vegan, and I love it so much!
    Coconut milk and soy milk ice creams have been my favorite homemade recipes so far. I have even gotten my family to change their views on traditional milk products, and we have all shifted to soy/coconut/almond milks! It has been such a blessing having their support on my journey to be animal free, and I would love to learn new ways to shift their views as well. Going completely dairy-free would really help my family support my cause, but it’s hard for me to find recipes that are delicious enough to convince them to make the change. I want this recipe book not only to support my views and diet, but to shift my family’s views, cause upon them new perspectives on my mission to become animal free, and help me spread the cause to even more people! πŸ™‚

  2. Why? Because I L.O.V.E. ice cream!!! And because my daughter is allergic to dairy, and cannot enjoy growing up with one of the pleasures I did (without spending an arm and a leg on store-bought ones). yum!

  3. I can’t have dairy, and I also can’t have the most popular substitutes for dairy in ice cream: soy or bananas, so I would be thrilled to have this book! πŸ˜€

  4. This book has my name all over it! Sadly, I’ve not been feeling inspired this summer to make ice cream and my ice cream maker hasn’t even been living in the freezer. I need some inspiration!!

    Because we are tired of coconut milk and vanilla. We need help! I am not very creative and need help in this area. We have learned we cannot of dairy and love, love ice cream!

  6. Three out of five of us here can’t have dairy (severe life-threatening allergies and also an intolerance). Plus I have a sensitivity to chicory, which is found in almost every dairy-free ice cream on the market. I’ve successfully made a few ice creams on my own, but I would love to explore new flavors and put this ice cream maker to better use (it’s only getting used once every few months, and my boys beg me for ice cream!). Thanks for the chance!

  7. I would love a copy of Kelly’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream book because there is such a lovely array of wonderful flavors that I would love to make and take to family gatherings and the upcoming fall holidays.

  8. This book would be a life-saver for me, as I’ve only recently discovered that my intolerance to dairy is “off the charts”, to quote my doctor. Having worked in ice-cream vans since my teens, I need ice cream to survive! This book would be a great help.

  9. My son and daughter would be thrilled if I won this! They both are allergic to milk and gluten and soy free, and I think Spunky Coconut’s recipes would be perfect for them, to enjoy ice cream once again!! It’s been a long time!

  10. My husband looooves ice cream and I cant tollerate it. Usually dairy free is too expensive to splurg on since I have to have other special dairy free items also. I am trying my best to learn how to make things on my own and I know a copy of this book would help! Then we could both have something yummy instead of me starring at him while he eats lol. Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

  11. I would love to try some ice cream! I have been dairy free for almost a year, and just gave up on having ice cream ever again. I would love to learn to make something that I could actually enjoy!

  12. I love creative recipes and don’t care much for all the heavy and condensed cream that so many ice cream recipes want.

  13. I would love to get a copy of this book to be able to make some treats for my son πŸ™‚ He has severe food allergies & we are very limited on what we can make!
