This dairy-free and vegan Piña Colada Ice Cream recipe was an entry in one of our So Delicious Dairy Free Recipe Contests, submitted by Dione Schwarz. It blends the flavors of a piña colada into a rich, creamy treat. I’m massively updating this post today, since it’s National Piña Colada Day!

Dairy-Free Piña Colada Ice Cream Recipe - just like the drink, but a frozen dessert! Also vegan and soy-free.

Piña Colada Ice Cream is the Perfect Dairy-Free Way to Keep Your Cool

Diane keeps this drink-inspired dessert “virgin,” but you can add a little rum, if desired. I would blend it into the mixture before churning. Alcohol doesn’t freeze, so it also helps to create a creamier consistency.

Most ice cream recipes with alcohol added for consistency reasons only use 1 to 2 tablespoons. But since this is a Piña Colada flavor, you can add more rum for taste, if desired. We won’t judge!
