Vegan Lavender Ice Cream


Several years ago, Cathe Olson offered to share two recipes from her book, Lick It! Creamy Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love. I highlighted the recipes in a news feature, but they were never added to our recipe section. Last month I moved and featured her Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Recipe, and today I’m giving a permanent home to her Vegan Lavender Ice Cream Recipe. Both recipes are unbelievably easy and this one contains just four ingredients!

Vegan Lavender Ice Cream
Prep time
Total time
Lavender blossoms give this ice cream a unique, delicate flavor. I love it with a mild-flavored cake like pound cake. It’s also delicious topped with berries. This is one of my most-requested recipes. Please note that the Prep time does not include steeping, chilling, and churning, which are hands off times.
Serves: 1 quart
  • 1¼ cups soymilk or other dairy-free milk beverage
  • ¼ cup fresh lavender flowers and buds (about 8 large sprigs)
  • 1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup sugar or agave nectar
  1. Pour the milk beverage into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until it just begins to boil. Stir in the lavender flowers and buds. Cover and remove from the heat. Let steep for 20 minutes.
  2. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a medium bowl. Pour the milk beverage through the strainer into a large bowl to remove the lavender.
  3. Whisk the coconut milk and sugar into the lavender-infused milk beverage until smooth. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  4. Freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.
