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.

    I am so disappointed, that I didn’t find this website until today (8/28/12), after the give away deadline. My stepson has a life threatening dairy allergy. He is allergic to 7 different parts of milk, not just milk itself. Because of that we have to watch everything he eats (there are lots of food items that have preservatives in them like Raviolis that have an allergen from milk in it and will cause him to have a severe reaction) He just started the 5th grade. Every year, within the first couple of months after school starts, the school has to call an ambulance for him because he forgets how bad his reactions are and eats something with dairy in it (Usually Ice cream or cookies), because all of his friends are eating these items at lunch and he LOVES the taste of them, and at 10 years old it is hard not to be able to eat things he loves when his friends are eating them all the time and they don’t understand why he can’t have it. I have tried for the past couple of years to find dairy free items for him, so he can enjoy these items too. He doesn’t like the dairy-free ice cream from the store, because the chocolate is super strong and I agree. Plus we can’t afford it, with all the medications he takes, money is really tight. It would mean the world to me if I could give him some dairy-free ice cream that he would enjoy. Thank you so much for making this cookbook. I really hope I can save up the money to get it. Making him dairy free ice cream means everything to me. πŸ™‚

    I would love a copy of this as my mum’s just found out she’s dairy intolerant. Along with me being intolerant to milk protein and her being Celiac, my family’s fairly limited in food choices! I’d love to be able to have some nice, tasty ice cream!

    I would absolutely love this book!
    I’m gluten free, and love icecream πŸ™‚ but the doctor told me last week that I need to stop eating dairy too πŸ™ , so far the dairy free options are lacking. Would love to try out the recipes in this book!

  5. I am a huge ice cream fanatic! I probably have ice cream a few nights a week. I just had my second baby 5 weeks ago and discovered that I need to eliminate dairy from my diet. This has been really hard on me and I luckily discovered your website which has been so much help for me!! I’m really missing my ice cream though…this would be so awesome to have!!
