Four Ingredient Ice Cream

healthy ice cream

Smooth.

Creamy.

Sweet, drippy ice cream, cascading into a delicious pool of vanilla.

Yeah, it’s winter. But I can’t keep this dreamy recipe to myself for the next four months. And actually, I really like eating ice cream in the winter.

healthy vanilla ice cream

One of my favorite memories is of a Christmas my family spent with relatives in Italy. The weather was bitter cold and rainy, and yet we knew it’d be a sin to leave without sampling the famed Italian gelato. Therefore—decked in hats, scarves, and heavy coats—we sat in a little gelateria, clumsily using gloved hands to spoon the rich, creamy dessert into our mouths. I’ve never tasted ice cream as delectable as on that blustery December day.

Perhaps this memory is what prompted me to pull out my ice cream maker a few days ago, in the ugliest weather we’ve experienced so far this year. The frustrating thing about ice cream makers is that you can really only make one batch per day, since the base needs to be completely frozen for optimum performance.

And I am not a patient person! If a recipe experiment doesn’t come out perfectly the first time, I immediately want to try again. My first attempt at making a healthy ice cream was awful. Loosely following a recipe from The New York Times, I mixed cornstarch in with my almond milk. The result was not an ice cream; it was a paste! In my second attempt, I reduced the amount of cornstarch, but it was still pasty. So, on day three, I omitted the cornstarch altogether…

Perfect!!

Feel free to customize this basic recipe any way you want! Add cocoa powder for healthy chocolate ice cream, berries for a sherbet, or even crushed candy canes and peppermint extract for a Christmas treat.

Four Ingredient Ice Cream

(Can be any flavor!)

  • 2 cups milk of choice or nondairy creamer or coconut milk (see note below)
  • 1/4 cup sweetener of choice: such as pure maple syrup, brown sugar, or xylitol for sugar-free
  • pinch stevia or 1 extra tbsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional ingredients for whatever flavor you desire

Mix all ingredients (except optional ingredients, if they are chunky) in a dish. If you have an ice-cream maker: simply transfer to your ice cream maker and watch the magic! (I have a Cuisinart, and it took 12-14 minutes to turn the liquid into ice cream. Warning: Make sure your ice cream maker’s base is completely frozen before use, or it will NOT work!!) You can eat it straight from the machine, or freeze a few hours for firmer texture. Homemade ice cream is best the day it’s made, but you can technically thaw it out and it will keep for a few weeks. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, see nutrition link below:

A word about the milk: This tastes delicious if you use only almond milk, but the texture is more foam-y (in a good way, if that makes sense!) than creamy. If you use only nondairy creamer or full-fat canned coconut milk, the texture is more like ice cream. (Brand ideas include: Silk creamer, So Delicious creamer, or Good Karma.) If not serving right away, be sure to thaw a little if your freezer is super-cold. (Also, I’d probably stay away from fat-free milks, such as ricemilk.)

Edit: If you are using all almond milk and still want it creamy (not foamy), you can freeze the ice cream and then re-blend it in a Vita-Mix for Vita-mix ice cream. The end result is incredibly creamy, without the fat and calories of using the coconut milk or creamer.

Do you have a favorite ice cream flavor?

Mine’s always been mint-chocolate chip. But plain chocolate is a close second. Coconut’s good, too! And cookie dough, peanut butter, cookies-n-cream… probably the only flavors I’m not big on are sorbets or sherbets.

    My favorite ice cream flavor has to be java chip or mocha almond fudge! Coffee ice cream is the best:) Except late at night… haha.

    1. Diamond says:

      Coffee is a very good flavour but I think mocha is better!:-)

  2. I think mine has to be mango or vanilla with morello cherries…yum!

  3. alex says:

    bluebell – which is made in Texas – is AMAZING! They have a Christmas Cookies ice cream flavor. It is fabulous. I really enjoy the old school Homemade Vanilla thought. Yum!

    1. Ooh I saw that in the grocery store the other day! It gave me a fun idea, too :).

    2. Lori says:

      Blue Bell is the BEST! I feel sorry for the rest of the country that can’t get it! :) Our favorite it Butter Crunch, with Butterfinger-type candy all in it. We also just tried the Red Velvet Cake. It’s yummy, too!

      1. Vonnie says:

        Gosh, is there any place in the U.S. that doesn’t get Blue Bell? I grew up in Texas and was disappointed when I moved to the Carolinas, but it’s been here about 10 years now. Also, my parents in Phoenix are able to get it.

        Not that it matters. I recently bought an ice cream maker to avoid the junk like carageenan and artificial sweeteners. This recipe is perfect! It’s so easy and delicious. To me, it tastes like Dairy Queen’s soft serve and who knows what’s in that stuff! I also mixed in some fresh strawberries that I had puréed and frozen, and that was also amazing!

        This one’s a keeper! :)

  4. mmmm ice cream in december! I love vanilla bean, with specks of real vanilla. With apple pie of course. Ice cream is big for me in the summer but I practically forget about it in the winter!

  5. Demelza says:

    I haven’t eaten ice cream in a long while, but my favorite used to be Baskin Robbins’ bubblegum flavor. I’d often beg my parents to take me after gymnastics practice. :]

  6. 4 ingredients, sounds awesome! you have some amazing ice creams katie! I love classic vanilla and cookies and cream. but all ice cream is delicious! thanks for sharing!

    1. Save me says:

      I love all ice cream flavours especially ones with a bit of crunch.;-)

    2. Save me says:

      I love all ice cream flavours especially ones with a bit of crunch. Katie your recipes are the best!!!

  7. Amanda says:

    I also like eating ice cream no matter the weather. Mint chocolate chip is a favorite, but I also really like pistachio. There aren’t too many flavors I don’t like. :)

    Love the addition of the rainbow sprinkles!

  8. I fell in love with mint oreo and then it was discontinued. I was broken-hearted because it was SO fantastic!

    You can’t beat regular vanilla with fresh raspberries over the top in the summer. I’m also a fan of caramel cashew frozen custard.

    Then again… never met an ice cream I haven’t really liked. :)

  9. Barb says:

    thank you thank you thank you!!! my boyfriend just got me a cuisinart ice cream maker, but all of the recipes in the recipe book are super fattening and I have been wanted to try a lighter version! this is JUST what I was looking for! you could not have had better timing :)

    I’m crushing up candy canes and putting them in mine for a peppermint ice cream tonight :)

    1. Just make absolutely sure it’s 100% frozen before you start, or it won’t work! Oh, and be sure to put the turner in before the liquid… that’s another issue I ran into! 😉

  10. My only preference with ice cream is that it have chunks of anything! Preferably chocolate though of course :) This looks super delish.

  11. How delicious! The sprinkles make it that much better! I’m not patient either, so this is perfect!

  12. Carissa says:

    That ice cream looks fantastic. I’m a chocolate girl but the vanilla even looks amazing. I usually get Blue Diamond almond milk, but you made me curious – why do you say not to use Silk?

    1. LOL I tried it… I’m not sure what happened, but it was awful (both in taste and texture)!

  13. Christa says:

    Can you imagine how good this would be if you used Silk’s “Nog” flavor and added candied (or uncandied…) pecans! Yummy yummy!

    1. Oh wow, I never thought about using flavored milks… what about their chocolate-peppermint flavor?!

      1. Ilana says:

        I just bought some So Delicious nog and it’s DEFINITELY getting used with this recipe…I’m thinking like 1/2 nog 1/2 full fat coconut milk, and maybe almonds or maple sugar candy (!!) spun in at the end. I still haven’t actually tasted the nog yet so I don’t know how much sweetener I’ll need to add.

  14. wow thats brilliant! & looks yummy.

  15. Salted caramel banana soft-serve or peanut butter chocolate HAVE to be the best “ice creams” I’ve ever had. Just wondering – could you make this in a vita with frozen milk?

      1. mrsluckypants says:

        Brilliant! I loved your post about ice cream and it got me thinking. I’ve had family asking what they can get me for Christmas and I’m running out of ideas so your post was wonderful and gave me a great idea, the cuisinart ice cream maker! How fun would that be to make ice cream with the kids? We are dairy free so I’m thinking we could make ice cream cheaper than we can buy it. Would you agree? Also, just read the comment about using the vita-mix for ice cream and I already have one of those, can you tell me how the texture is in the vitamix vs the ice cream maker? Do you freeze the leftovers and if so, do they turn out ok consistency wise? Thanks so much for your help.

        I love pralines and cream from Baskin Robbins but it is full of milk so I don’t get to have it much anymore.

      2. Hmmm… I’ve actually not re-frozen the vita-mix one.
        The texture really does depend, though, on what milks you use. I’d recommend ones with a higher fat content… unless you want the spongey texture, which some people like too!

  16. Coffee! Green tea! Chai! Summer’s here all year round so I’ll be trying it! 😀

  17. I’d always loved chocolate chip cookie dough, but there’s also something to be said about a classic high quality plain vanilla or chocolate

  18. I still haven’t tried making my own ice cream! I really want to now. My favourite is, and always will be, cookie dough :)

  19. Erin says:

    Do you think this would work for one of those Cuisinart soft serve ice cream machines??

    1. I’m not sure. I’ve never seen one of those… I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker.
      But if you do try it, I’d love to hear how it goes.

  20. Jennie says:

    THIS is the exact reason why I have an ice cream maker. Thanks Katie – putting my base in the freezer now!!!

  21. Amanda says:

    I crave ice cream more in the cold months than I do in the summer!! I cant wait to try your ice cream your mint chocolate chip is on my long to do list.

  22. I love vanilla with things mixed in it, or just strawberry plain! Strawberry was always my go-to growing up! Sooo good.

  23. Making nondairy ice cream AND making it in a blender rather than an ice cream maker (which is me)…is definitely an art rather than a science I’ve found. So many kinds of milks/mylks, sugars, i.e. maple, white, agave, etc…and so it’s so hard to get it to the right consistency and texture…bravo to you for keeping on with the experiments. And yes, I would have ruled out cornstarch too! Can’t believe the NYT used that?

  24. My favorite is mint-chocolate chip, too! That is why your chocolate-mint milkshake has saved me!!!!

  25. Megan says:

    I absolutely love gelato! My favorite flavors have been gelato: amaretto chocolate chip, amarena black cherry, nutella swirl, and sea salt caramel. If only I could emulate them at home! What model of Cuisinart do you have? I have wanted an ice cream maker but did not know which brand is best.

    1. Hmmm… I don’t know. It doesn’t actually say! It just says “Cuisinart frozen yogurt, ice cream, and sorbet maker.” It’s a few years old.

  26. Ohh I was having such an ice cream craving last night so I had some So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream.. but I’d wish I’d had a homemade one! Turning it into a peppermint one sounds fab– chocolate with peppermint perhaps?? But my all time favorite ice cream flavor is jamoca almond fudge- I grew up ordering it at Baskin Robbins and it kind of stuck!

  27. Melissa says:

    Katie, try making fro yo!

    I just take a big container of Whole Soy unsweetened yogurt, add about 3-4 tbs of Stevia baking blend (it has gums in it that help the texture once frozen. Amazing.) and then whatever extracts I want. I’ve done vanilla, peppermint and pumpkin so far! I loooove it. It’s rich and creamy and tangy. You could easily use a different sweetener or just use the sweetened Whole Soy and not add any extra. Both are so good and so easy.

    I’ve used the Wildwood unsweetened, too, but Whole Soy is my favorite!

    When I make ice cream, I use arrowroot powder and a mix of coconut milk and almond milk. One of my ice cream recipe books (yes, I have more than one!) calls for arrowroot and it works very well with no chalky taste like you can get with other starches. I think it’s Vegan Scoop that I have that calls for arrowroot. Awesome book!

    Vice Cream is the other book I have and that’s more nut based ice creams. I make cashew ice cream like they do in Vice Cream. I blend two cups of raw cashews with two cups of water in my vitamix. Add extracts and sweetener to taste and then process in my ice cream machine once the base mix is chilled. Katie, TRY THIS. It makes the most creamy, rich ice cream ever! 😀

    1. Oh wow, Melissa, thanks for sharing! I’ve always been interested in cashew-based ice cream, but I never had a recipe. Bookmarking your idea!

  28. MANDEE says:

    what kind of milk did you use for the ice cream in your pictures? i see that you have a couple of workable options listed. thanks!

    1. Definitely the all-creamer version :).

  29. Amber K says:

    Well it used to be cookies and cream, but I can’t have it anymore (stupid gluten!) Now I’m more likely to just stick to fro-yo in which case I love peanut butter, mint, or just plain vanilla. Although they had pumpkin recently and it was awesome!

  30. I love chocolate chip cookie dough soft serve ice-cream! & I have a question, did you use the sweetened almond milk or unsweetened? I usually get the Unsweetened Vanilla Blue Diamond. (& I just made-up some homemade chocolate ice-cream Monday using leftover chocolate pudding so I’m with ya on the winter ice-cream cravings!)

    Can’t wait to try this now, everybody has so many good ideas!

    1. Unsweetened, like you. Chocolate pudding ice cream??? That sounds SO good!

      1. Awesomeness thanks! We took the leftover chocolate pudding & turned it into more of a ‘mousse’ & then put it in our icecream maker. Probably not the healthiest dessert but it was good lol.

        I can’t wait to try this out!

  31. Katie says:

    I ALWAYS crave ice cream, so this is perfect! 😛 So regular coconut milk (not the full-fat kind in cans, but Silk Coconut Milk) would work? I’ll have to test this out…

    1. I haven’t actually tried that one, but if you do I would love to know if it works!

  32. dara says:

    What is the base then??

    1. Sorry, I’m confused. The base for what?

      1. I think they mean the base that you keep mentioning needs to be “completely frozen”!

        “Warning: Make sure your base is completely frozen before use, or it will NOT work!!”

      2. Ooooh ooh I see! Sorry, I meant the ice cream maker’s base (the metal bowl in which you put the liquid). I fixed the post.

      3. dara says:

        so so sorry, I mis-read your instructions on this. Disregard my question.

  33. Ellen says:

    I’ll have to give the nondairy creamer a try! Cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, and peanut butter probaboly tie as my faces:)

    1. Ellen says:

      Oops, I meant my faves, but I am sure they end up on my face, too;)

  34. Looks delicious! I’m all about eating ice cream in the winter as well, mostly just because I love it so so much. Do you have any techniques to make ice cream without an ice cream maker?!

  35. wow this looks really awesome, and my favorite flavor of ice cream is mint chocolate chip too.

  36. Sarah says:

    Why do you do this to me? Do you always have to tempt my weak self? Do always have to make me lick the screen… which never tastes that good? And then everyone laughs at me! as if they never licked a screen! Well, since they dont read CCK, they probably have no reason to :) Ok, so here is the current scenario. I just finished Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar for 10th grade literature ( not that you care) and am in the middle of a book report on this EXTREMELY boring dude. So i take a break to check CCK, and man oh man was it worth it! Some computer is gonna have ice cream drips all over it real soon…….
    That is all :) Have a chocolate covered day Katie!
    questions for YOU: did you like shakespeare? And on a disconnected note, do you favor vanilla or chocolate?
    My answers: NOT ON YOUR LIFE! and chocolate by far

    1. Well, it depends on the work! For example, I really liked Macbeth… Othello made me cry… Hamlet was way too depressing!
      And do you really not know my answer to the chocolate question? Hint: check my blog title ;).

      1. Sarah says:

        Well, i had a feeling but was wondering why you didnt post a pic of chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla, that’s all :)

  37. Val says:

    I love your ice cream posts. I really need to get an ice cream maker!

  38. Looks awesome! I love peppermint, pumpkin, and strawberry.

  39. Sophie says:

    Love this! It already makes me think of the ways to be creative with this and adding things :)

    My favorite icecream is the sodelicious coconutmilk ones sweetened with stevia. Yum!!

  40. Ooh yum I need an ice cream maker! 😀

    You actually made me crave ice cream in the winter, which is usually something I only want in hot weather…!

  41. Jane says:

    Do you think Dream Almond soy milk is good for this? And does it taste good in general? (I tend to only drink unsweetened soy milk but want to try something different)

    1. Sorry, I’ve never had Dream almond soy milk. I don’t think I’ve even seen it before.

  42. Ida says:

    Lecithin is magic in ice cream (or homemade chocolate), it makes everything creamy and also gives a slightly thicker consistency. I love it!

  43. Kim says:

    Just curious about your choice of almond milk. I always drank the Blue Diamond 40 calorie unsweetened milk but my fiance bought me Silk unsweetened almond milk and I noticed it had 5 less calories per cup so I’ve been buying that lately. What’s your opinion? I saw you suggested using Blue Diamond instead of Silk in the ice cream recipe (which I will also be making soon!) I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker, also, and tried making a coconut ice cream in the summer and it never came together even though my insert was completely solid. Excited to try yours!

    1. I think the Silk one is thicker, so I like it better if I’m actually drinking the almond milk straight up. But for baking, I like almond breeze better. Plus it can be shelf-stable, which is always a plus!

    2. Asian Chick says:

      Just reduce your gum consumption by 1 stick. It has 5 calories, so you’ll be fine with Blue Diamond.

  44. This is PERFECT for the icky weather we’ve been having. Seriously though, where are the crisp, beautiful december days I’m used to?

    This icecream looks so delicious though. I mean, mouth watering delicious. I bet it would be good with a spoonful of peanut butter or some of your cookie dough mixed in :)

  45. Kit-Kat says:

    I love all flavors!!! The only exception is probably nut-infested flavors…. especially those containing pistachios or walnuts. I’ll have them on occasion, but it’s not a top pic
    My absolute favorite is Baskin Robins 31 Flavors Daiqurie ices (original, watermelon, and raspberry). Other than that, I love cookie dough, peanut butter kinds, brownie or chocolate kinds, cookie crumb kinds, coffee, caramel and toffee….. the list goes on and on!
    Do you like pistachio ice cream??? I only like it in spamoni.

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever tried it! I love pistachios, though!

  46. You’ve tried it with almond milk and it didnt work?

    1. Silk almondmilk doesn’t work.

  47. vogelstar says:

    I grew up on peanut butter chocolate, but I also love rocky road. I love everything with marshmallows. I wonder if you have ever posted or will ever post a smores based recipe. MMM

  48. Probably one of my favorite recipes you’ve done yet. You are a rockstar :-)

  49. Candace says:

    Hm…..how can someone even choose a favorite flavor? i really like coffee or turtle or cappuccino or mint or banana or peanut butter. the list doesn’t end! i really want to try this recipe but don’t have an ice cream maker. is there another way to make it? please say yes.

    1. Try any of these recipes if you don’t have an ice-cream maker. (They do need a vita-mix, though.)
      http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/chocolate-covered-recipes/ice-cream-and-frozen-treats/

      1. Candace says:

        bummer. I haven’t got a vita-mix either:( i guess i know what to ask for for Christmas, though.

  50. So easy, so tasty! I have a Cuisinart too and have only used it once. Shame on me! I love those sprinkles, they make me happy to look at. :)

  51. Liz J says:

    anything with gooey fudgey peanut buttery cookie dough chunkiness goodness!

  52. I love gelato! I’m so jealous of you for your trip to Italy! :) When it gets warm again I must make this for my family because we are one big pack of ice cream lovers. Ooh by the way, your photography is AMAZING. I wish I could photograph food like that!

    1. Oh no, I have so much to learn! I always feel like taking good photos is a struggle for me :-?. Photoshop is my crutch, fixing everything from dark photos to overexposure! 😉

  53. Kate says:

    Have you tried making ice cream with frozen bananas as the base? I guess you would have to like bananas for the recipe to be worthwhile, but it is healthy and delicious! I sometimes add peanut butter.

    1. Oh yes, definitely! I always add peanut butter!! And sometimes a little cinnamon :).

  54. My favorite is definitely moose tracks…peanut butter cups, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate chunks and fudge swirls. mmmm.

  55. I will eat ice cream even if it’s cold and snowing (as long as I have my electric blanket!).
    My favorite flavor is mint chocolate chip, but as long as it doesn’t have blueberries, pineapple, or coffee- I’m good. Add a brownie to the bowl of ice cream…oh yum!

  56. Aja says:

    Vanilla. Does that make me lame?
    I wish I had an ice cream maker.

    1. Haha no, there’s no way you could ever be lame ;).

  57. Mint chocolate chip is a favorite of mine. Those sprinkles make the ice cream cone look so festive!

  58. Amy says:

    we have an old fashioned (but with motor) White Mountain ice cream machine. You fill the metal container, pour ice and rock salt around it, plug it in and let it churn til frozen. Do you think your recipe would work in it the same way? No pre-freezing of anything is required and I soooo miss ice cream!

    1. I’ve only tried it with my Cuisinart, so I can’t say for sure. I’d HOPE that all ice cream makers would work! If you do try it, I really hope it works for you! :)

  59. Kathy says:

    For me, it would have to be…hm…okay, honestly, I’ll eat anything you place in front of me (unless it’s cockroaches, or rats, or something out of the norm (although, I did eat bear meat once; tasted like pork).
    But, ultimately, I’d have to say cookies n cream!

  60. rach. says:

    THIS SOUNDS SO GOOD. oh my goodness, coconut milk? YUM.
    LOVE the blog girl. just thought i’d let ya know. 😉

    love, rach.

  61. Meredith says:

    This would be great with soy/rice “egg nog”!

  62. how many servings does this recipe make? i totally love love love ice cream, though every time i try to make it i’m always less than satisfied… any suggestions?

    1. It depends on how big you want your serving lol. Also, if you use the full creamer version, you’ll probably be satisfied with a smaller serving because it’s richer.

  63. cj says:

    my absolute fave ice cream is tiger tiger lol (the brite orange and black stripes mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good ) finding it tuff to make raw tho lol hahaha

  64. Caryn says:

    Hey Chocolate Katie, have you heard about Cookie butter from Trader Joe’s? This reminds me of one of your recipes, though I’m sure you’d make it better and healthier. Time for a knock off?

    http://blisstree.com/eat/trader-joes-cookie-butter-not-healthy-snack-928/

    1. LOL I can’t try it! I don’t have a TJ’s here :(. Is it kinda like my gingerbread butter? Maybe with some coconut flour added in for buttery-ness? From what I saw in your link, it’s gingersnaps combined with nuts? In any case, it sounds fun!

  65. esmemerrie says:

    who cares that it’s winter! did you know the state that eats the most ice cream is Alaska? ya weird huh? I love chocolate chip cookie dough or brownie chunks in my ice cream! I also like to add some almond butter when I make your recipes :)

    1. So weird! I also read that ice cream sales go up in winter months. Maybe because, like another commenter mentioned, more people are eating pie… and ice cream goes so well with pie!

    2. Grizzly says:

      I told my graeomdthnr how you helped. She said, “bake them a cake!”

  66. Tara says:

    I may have spent my allowance on an ice-cream maker today…may your ice-cream-in-the-winter-lovin heart be blessed forever! I can’t wait to try it :D.

  67. I’m almost embarassed to say because it’s probably one of THE. WORST things for you, but Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked. It’s the best of everything: chocolate AND vanilla ice cream. Cookie dough AND brownie pieces. Pure “eat your feelings” heaven

  68. T says:

    Yum yum yum, looks amazing!!!

  69. Yummy! I love cookie dough ice cream and I could eat ice cream anytime of year. I asked for an ice cream maker for Christmas. Here’s hoping I get one so I can make this!

  70. We’ve had good success with rice milk, although it does come out more like sorbet than ice cream, and we’ve had many many compliments on how yummy it was!

    We can ONLY use rice milk as our littlest one is allergic every single other kind of milk….even flax seed milk! Makes life very challenging but I’m up for it!

    1. Ooh good to know! I was afraid ricemilk wouldn’t work because of its low fat content.

  71. Delicious. I have an ice cream maker thanks to the boyfriend! I’ll have to give it a try. I used to be a chocolate-only girl, but I love anything with peanut butter mixed in!

  72. Maya says:

    Be glad you don’t eat meat- arsenic in Chicken!!!!

  73. JGodbolt says:

    That breakfast looks delicious and you made me want to start eating different types of breakfast other than cereal that I eat all the time.

  74. JGodbolt says:

    I love ice cream! dessert can be both delicious and healthy for you!!

  75. Maria says:

    I just finished making this ice cream – SO. GOOD. But I found mine to taste alot more coconutty than vanilla (I just used a regular tin of coconut milk). It still tasted GLORIOUS, but maybe upping the vanilla extract a bit more might achieve a more basic vanilla ice cream.

    1. Yeah, the coconut milk definitely will have a coconut flavor (less so if you make chocolate ice cream). You could always try nondairy creamer instead, for a more plain vanilla.

      1. Maria says:

        Chocolate, now THERE’s an idea 😉

        I’m pretty sure the only nondairy creamers I’ve seen where I live are in those tiny little portable packets, and even then I have to travel to a remote location to get them :/ Still think I’ll try though, haha.

  76. Ilana says:

    ok inspired by you, i just dumped a few cups of SSo Delicious Coconut nog into the ice cream maker and let it run, and wow. Literally just the nog, I didn’t think I needed to add anything because the sweeteners and the thickeners are already in the formula. Yeah, it’s 35 degrees out and I’m facefirst in a bowl of this stuff.

  77. I would add chocolate chunks! Or peanut butter! Or whipped cream!

    Or all 3.

    And I really want an ice cream maker!! :-)

  90. Sara says:

    I have lots of ideas for customizing this basic recipe…Mint chip with peppermint extract and some dark chocolate; pumpkin pie with some pureed pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger; coffee; chocolate almond with almond extra and dark chocolate. Also I might make one of your delicious cookie recipes to crumble over the plain vanilla. Oh yummmm :)

  91. YES YES YES. I would make a faux butterfinger ice cream by using pulverized Chic-O-Sticks! Oh I wish I had an ice cream maker.

  92. Kerryne says:

    My favorite ice cream is peanut butter and chocolate… or pistachio, I think I would have to add those in to this one! Yummy!

  93. I would most definitely add some coconut flakes and coconut milk to this recipe. YUMMMMMM!!!!!!

  100. Amelia says:

    I would customize this so many ways! Adding little pieces of vegan cookie dough bites would be amazing, or chocolate-peanut butter with banana. And maybe some instant coffee with mint and chocolate chips… mocha mint chip… mmmmm. And also a pumpkin spice ice cream! YES. The possibilities are endless. :)

  101. Just saw a recipe for banana bread ice cream I am dying to try!

  102. lucy says:

    I would deffinitly add some dried passion fruit and some lemon juice to this recipie :)

  103. Kristin says:

    I would try it with chocolate almond milk

  104. Liz says:

    I would add coffee granules…or crushes chocolate cookies. or both, definitely both.

  105. Amelia says:

    Also I’m a fan on FB :)

  106. Kim says:

    I would add peanut butter! Lots and lots. I think I’m Peanut Butter Covered Kim.

  107. Kristin says:

    I get your recipes via email

  108. Crystal says:

    Mmmmm Ice cream!! There are soooo many flavor combinations it is hard to narrow it down! However I have been on an almond and coconut kick lately, so I would probably make “Almond Joy” ice cream. I would add coconut and almond extract, cocoa powder and chocolate pieces, maybe some almond butter for richness and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut!! MMMM!

    Another option since I just made a TON of pralines for christmas gifts I might add some butter extract and some candied pecans and make Pecan praline or butter pecan ice cream … MMM! Ok now I want ice cream for breakfast!! 😉

  109. Kim says:

    Oh, and I’m a facebook fan.

  110. Lindsey says:

    add peanut butter!!!

  111. Kristin says:

    I follow you on twitter

  112. Vanessa says:

    Oh goodness, I’ve been dreaming about this recipe since you posted! I would love to win an ice cream maker so I could test it out :o) To personalize, I would keep it simple by adding some vegan chocolate chip cookie dough balls, and maybe a little drizzle of melted peanut butter.

  113. Kristin says:

    I like you on facebook

  114. lucy says:

    Facebook is also how I roll

  115. Sara says:

  126. Megan says:

    Katie. You just made my day!!!! I had just asked a few days ago what kind of ice cream maker you used, so the chance to win one gets me so excited! By the way, I already follow you on pinterest and facebook (extra points!). How would I customize your ice cream? Well, here a few ideas:
    1.) Use Silk holiday mint chocolate milk, add to it crushed peppermint pieces, peppermint extract, and swirl it with dark chocolate almond butter
    2.) Classic vanilla almond milk + cinnamon, add to it YOUR pieces of raw gingerbread men and coconut whipped cream!
    3.) Puree raspberries and add to ice cream made with chocolate soy/almond milk, add in cocoa nibs, and swirl with dark chocolate almond butter/artisana
    Hows that for customization 😉

  127. Leah says:

    An ice cream maker! What a great giveaway.

    To personalize this recipe, I would love to make little cookie dough chunks and mix them in. Not super original, but I’ve never loved another type of ice cream nearly as much as I love cookie dough ice cream! Orrr maybe I’d figure out a way to give it a little cake batter taste…Yum!

  128. Liz says:

    I subscribed to your email feed!

  129. Aly says:

    Woo! I want to win the ice cream maker! How I would customize the recipe…four words: green tea ice cream.

  130. Brittany Rogers says:

    I would customize this by of course, adding chocolate!!

  131. Audrey says:

    I would love it with a caramel swirl and candied pecans OR fudge swirl and mini pb cups!

  132. I would add in peanut butter and chocolate chips! :)

  133. Leah says:

    I think it might need a little nut butter :)

  134. Gabby says:

    I would somehow incorporate this cookie butter i just got from trader joes!

  135. Jennifer says:

    I’d add almond extract, almond bits, and white chocolate chips. YUM!

  136. Katie says:

    I liked you FB page!

  137. Megan says:

    I would love to try lemon-blueberry ice cream, maybe with pieces of pie crust or graham crackers crumbled in.

  138. kaity says:

    omgg! this is amazing i been searching for one for xmas bc ur icecreams make me go crazy! and all the normal price ones are always out of stock except the $500 ones, no thanks! lol and id just go with peanut butter with ur awesome brownie bites!

  139. calla says:

    I would add orange zest and cardamon seeds!

  140. Katie says:

    I would crush pb cups on and sprinkle them on top!

  141. Trieste says:

    I’m into peanut butter ANYTHING these days, so I’d make caramel-peanut butter ice cream. And last night I made a sweet potato smoothie that I think would make fabulous ice cream. I haven’t tried working with flavored Stevia yet but I want to give that a shot as well… I’ve been wanting an ice cream maker for a long time!

  142. Jennifer G. says:

    Hmm I bet it would be good with the Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream.. Or maybe frozen strawberries with some simple syrup for a strawberry taste.. the possibilities are endless!

    1. Jennifer G. says:

      Oops, meant coconut vanilla milk*

  143. Eileen says:

    I LOVE icecream! In fact, you could call me “icecream-covered- eileen”! Being a health provider, nutritiona dn fitness lover, I am alsways lookignf or healthy and yummy icecream! Can’t wait to try your recipes! I would “make it my own” by adding in pumpkin, or chocolate, or ganola, or fresh fruit or…. anything! YUM!

    1. Eileen says:

      don’t mind my mis-typings… I entered this at work in between patients! Wanted to get my entry in ASAP :)

  144. I would try swapping in frozen bananas for the milk! Frozen bananas make INCREDIBLE ice cream! :)

  145. kaity says:

    like you on fbk!

  146. Jaclyn says:

    I immediately stopped working when I saw the contest email come through!!
    I would add almond extract and fresh raspberries to this recipe!

  147. Katie says:

    I retweeted you!

  148. Rebecca says:

    i would add dark chocolate chips and coconut flakes!! yummmm

  149. Sarah says:

    Thanks for offering the giveaway Katie! There are a bunch of ice cream flavors I would love to try – I would probably start by adding some mango puree to your recipe :)

  150. Connie says:

    I would customize this by adding 1/2 cup pumpkin puree and a bit of pumpkin pie spice for some fall-flavored ice cream. I also think it would be interesting to try adding 2 tbl of chia seeds; I’ve never seen somebody do that before.

  151. Aimee Miller says:

    I’d add Guava preserves…the acidity with the creaminess would be spectacular!

  152. Kim Brown says:

    I love ice cream ALL year round!!! I think I’ll try this with vanilla and Chocolate Chips! YUM

  153. Lauren says:

    I like to get crazy with ice cream concoctions. If I had a SUHWEET cuisinart ice cream maker right this moment – I would be all about christmas flavors.

    Creamy Peppermint Candy = a little peppermint extract, peppermint candy bits, and dark chocolate pieces (+beet juice for red color)

    Gingerbread Snap = + a few tablespoons molasses, cinnamon, and of course gluten-free gingerbread cookie crumbles.

    But let’s be honest, the possibilities are ENDLESS. Hot cocoa ice cream, pretzel chocolate peanut butter, sweet pistachio, yum yum YUM.

  154. Sarah says:

    And I already like you on FB!

  155. Gerri says:

    I would add some of your cookie dough at the end

  156. Danielle says:

    strawberries + basil. yum!

  157. Audrey says:

    I tweeted and follow you (just_audrey)

  158. Lauren B. says:

    I would customize by adding in small chunks of cookie dough balls and a swirl of chocolate ganache!

  159. Taya says:

    I’d have to go with either mint or coffee! Or…I could just make them both and have EXTRA ice cream 😉

  160. Bekah says:

    Pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice! Mmmm

  161. Dee says:

    Hmmm so many possibilities! I would probably do peanut butter in there as well as try a pumpkin variety. Coconut maybe:). I grew up eating ice cream and making it the old fashioned way with my grandparents, I sure miss both:)

  162. Amy says:

    I already get your healthy recipes by email (one of the emails I look forward!) and follow you on twitter. Thank you.

  163. Audrey says:

  164. kaity says:

  165. Sandra says:

    I love chocolate ice cream, there is nothing like a rich smooth chocolate on the tougue. I would add some almonds and coconut to make a almond joy type ice cream. I love ice cream all year round.
    It is an easy dessert but, I gave my daughter my ice cream maker…..so winning a new one would be heavenly!!!

  166. Jennifer says:

    Icecream is the one thing that I love but have always wondered if there was a simpler way to make it & make it a little healthier…you’ve come to the rescue! Being that it is a little healthier a few naughty indulgences every now and again are acceptable. My sister in law has dragged me into her love of everything pumpkin so a pumpkin pie flavor would be my spin.

  167. Joanne says:

    I know the ingredients in this would probably undo all of the goodness in this ice cream but I would modify it by adding Nutella…I had Nutella gelato in Italy and it was AMAZING!!

  168. Allie says:

    Yum! I would add pumpkin puree, pumpkin spices, and butterscotch chips!

  169. Taya says:

    I like you on fb!

  170. Vanessa says:

    I would customize it by adding in some raw cookie dough crumbles!

  171. melanie says:

    i think i would stir in some dried cherries and cacao nibs! yum!

  172. Rachel says:

    This recipe sounds awesome!!! And I love that you don’t have to cook the ingredients first!

    I would add MALT!!!! I don’t know why, but I LOOOOVE malt in ice cream…even mint ice cream!

    I’ve always wanted an ice cream maker….that would be great to be able to make healthy, non-chemical-y ice creams. I stopped eating the regular packaged ice creams after reading the labels….it’s really scary what they put into it!

    Thanks so much…love your blog! :))))

  173. Michelle says:

    I would add caramel to it

  174. Yvonne says:

    My favorite ice cream come from using spring and summer fruits–fresh peach, fresh strawberry with chocolate, and blackberry. Yum!

  175. Korby says:

    I LOVE coconut in my ice cream…would love to be able to make it at home:o)

  176. Kim says:

    I retweeted (and follow) you! (I really want to make some vegan ice cream!)

  177. Taya says:

    I subscribe to your e-mails!

  178. Michelle says:

    I like you on fb

  179. I would add cocoa nibs! They’re not too sweet and so healthy!

  180. April says:

    As someone who is gluten, dairy, and cane sugar intolerant, I would adore making my own ice cream! One of my favorite mixtures of flavors is banana and peanut butter. Banana is so naturally sweet but adding a bit of extra honey doesn’t hurt. :-)

  181. Andrea says:

    I’d add shredded ginger, vegan caramel, cinnamon, and shortbread pieces spiked with nutmeg and clove.

  182. Julia says:

    I would use peppermint extract and chocolate chunks to make it mint chocolate chip!

  183. Leah says:

    I get your emails

  184. robin says:

    Hmmmmm….I think a chai ice cream or a gingerbread for the season would be awesome…..mmmmm maybe a little coconut to simulate snow…..OH…..the possibilities!!!! Ho Ho Ho……

  185. Hannie says:

    I’d really love an ice-cream maker!

    There’s so much I would love to try – for starters, Kaya ice-cream. Kaya’s an amazing coconut jam we eat a lot of back home, and can be easily made. And I’d combine it with my favourite recipes of yours – lightly blending in your brownie bites/ larabars would make this amazing :)

    1. BAnu says:

      Hi
      Are you from Malaysia? I am from Malaysia and love kaya.

  187. Jenny says:

    If I had the ice cream maker necessary to make this? I would customize it by making it into chocolate raspberry ice cream! Defeats the whole “four-ingredient” aspect but… 😉 I’d add cocoa powder and frozen raspberries, and maybe some cacao nibs or actual melted chocolate for an extra decadent treat!

  188. I would add cacao nibs! They’re healthy but delicious!

  189. Leah says:

  195. I would add lots of chocolate and a big spoonful of peanut butter!

  200. Suzy says:

    What about soaking some raisins in rum, draining them off and making rum raison ice cream for Christmas?

  201. kelly ronca says:

    I would love chocolate peppermint! YUM YUM!! Thanks for offering such a great giveaway

  202. H says:

    I love the idea of using coconut milk for this! I can’t wait to try it with home-made peppermint bark chips! I like to make the bark with a ganache in the center of the two layers of white chocolate and crushed candy canes. Softer on the teeth and a great creamy surprise…. yum 😉
    I layer Melted white chocolate on top of wax-paper lined baking sheet, sprinkle crushed candy canes and chill.
    Then, melt semi-sweet nestles chips over double boiler and add liquor of your choice (I like Kahlua or peppermint schnaps) and some heavy cream (or dairy-free substitute of your choice) to make ganache. Pour over the chilled white chocolate layer and re-place into fridge.
    Finally, I repeat white chocolate layer (more crushed candy canes) and chill till set. Break up into pieces and add to Ice-cream!!!!

  203. Yin says:

    I would add some dark chocolate chips and add some espresso/coffee!

  204. Erin says:

    I would definitely add some kind of chocolate!!

  222. M says:

  229. Ashley says:

    Since I am a chocolate lover too, I would add some chunks of my healthy chocolate brownie bites to it and for my husband I would add some strawberry and banana chunks!! So many options to make this even more delicous!!

  230. Jenn says:

    Ohh man. There’s ENDLESS possibilities to customize this ice cream! I think I’d first stick with the healthier options… such as add raspberries. Although, adding chocolate and peanut butter is awfully tempting. :)

    I already like your page on facebook! :)

  231. Jessica says:

    I would make fresh strawberry ice cream, mmm….

  232. Jessie says:

    And in the interest of winning an epic-awesome ice cream maker –

    I also ‘like’ your facebook page – – –

  236. jeanna says:

    I would probably add some nutella :)

  237. Connie says:

    Right now I would crush candy canes and add. The rest of the year I would probably add mocha powder or straight coffee.

  238. Kira says:

    I would love to make a candy cane version of this! I would crush up a few organic vegan candy canes and maybe add some peppermint extract!
    And of course I would add some chocolate!! YUMM

  239. Fun giveaway!! Thank you, thank you for this chance! I’ve always wanted one. :)

    I’d definitely have to make Snicker’s ice cream as best I could. That stuff is heaven.

  240. Dakota says:

    I would (and probably will) make as many flavors as possible in the summer. Chocolate coconut almond? Cherry chocolate chunk? Apple-pie? Or just Vanilla with chocolate sauce (childhood FAVE). I’d love to win the give-away, but now I’m mostly just excited about all the ice cream I’m going to make this summer.

  241. Tiffany A. says:

  243. Kaycee says:

    Mmm ice cream- my two favorite words! I would definitely make a mocha flavored ice cream- some coffee and chocolate flavor thrown in. Also I would do key lime pie flavor and even throw in some spinach for some nutrition and color ;p. OH and a nutella flavored one (a mix of hazelnut and chocolate) would also be glorious. Goodness the endless possibilities are mind boggling 😀

  244. Dakota says:

    Oh my gosh, this ice cream maker is on my Christmas wish list! We just tried an easy 3 ingredient recipe at my cousins house (they got one for their wedding, which is why I added it to my wish list)! Sweetened condensed milk, half and half, and vanilla. Of course to make it 4 ingredients you’d add something in like Oreo’s! Healthy goes out the window though, lol!

  250. Lena says:

    After trying everything you mentioned already, I would probably try some sort of Kinder Bueno form of ice cream, with hazelnut and chocolate (and probably peanut butter, since I add peanut butter to everything) 😀

  265. Tiffany says:

    I LOVE your blog!

    With your recipie I would make my favorite Ice cream of all time- Almond Joy Ice Cream :-)

  273. Ruthiey says:

    I would make peanut butter icecream with chocolate chunks in it. :)

  274. Jess says:

    Mm… I think I’d try it with a swirl of honey. I’m moving out soon and have way too much kicking around to use up completely 😉

  275. Deneigh says:

    I just “liked” you on Facebook!

  276. caiti says:

    I’d make it with coconut milk and add coconut, dark chocolate chips, and almonds:)

  277. Maddie says:

    Well this isn’t my favorite flavor (because honestly I’m not sure if it exists) but it’d be so yummy to add a splash of rum,bourbon,and nutmeg and then mix in spiced molasses ribbons to make Eggnog Molasses Swirl ice cream! 😀

  278. Renee Allen says:

    Mint Chocolate is my favorite too, but I also love chocolate peanut butter ice cream (like Purely Decadent Peanut Butter Zig Zag). If you could come up with a way to make that, I’d be swooning!

  279. Meredith says:

    I follow you on Twitter and retweeted about this as @TheVeganKitchen.

  280. Lisa Broadley says:

    What about your Canadian fans? Are we not eligible??? I like you on FB as well. BTW mint chocolate is my favourite…I would love to try your recipe! And maybe if I don’t win one, then I’ll buy it!! Being lactose intolerant this would come in handy!!

  281. Shannon says:

    I would try chocolate chips in the recipe.

  292. Shaunna Ulrick says:

    I get your emails! :)

  293. Shannon says:

    I tweeted.

  294. Cassie says:

    I think I would add peanut butter to the ice cream and then perhaps roll the cookie dough dip (without the soy milk so it is firmer) into little bites to create a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter ice cream option. Mmmm.

  295. I would add ground almonds and dark chocolate chunks!

  296. Stephanie says:

    I also follow you on Twitter and re-tweeted.

  297. Amanda says:

    My favorite ice cream is without a doubt Starbuck’s Java Chip. Instead of REAL chocolate I would substitute carob chips; a slightly healthier alternative, but just as yummy!

  298. Faith Halverson says:

    I love coconut so I’m going to try this with toasted shredded coconut and coconut milk!

  299. Ida Marie says:

    And I like you on Facebook!

  301. Chia says:

    Wow a Cuisinart ice-cream maker giveaway- thanks CCK! How would I customize your recipe? Hmm… it might sound strange, but I would try chopping up some fresh herbs (like basil) and adding that into the mix before putting it into the machine. OR, I’d add some organic powdered ginger… the possibilities… yum!

  302. Lauren says:

    I’d add peppermint for a holiday flavor!

  303. Bev Nicholas says:

    i would add chocolate, caramel ( or Dulche de leche) and pecans.
    Turtle ice cream would not last long in my house.

  304. Lauren says:

    I get your recipes in my emails.

  305. I think I would throw in some candy canes for a wintery treat to have with some warm pie! mmmmm

  306. Dalai Lina says:

  307. Ida Marie says:

    I would add cocoa powder, swirls of agave caramel syrup and pieces of fudge babies. Yum!

  308. Rebecca Jack says:

    my favorite dark chocolate right now is a peppermint flavor by endangered species. Peppermint ice cream with peppermint dark chocolate chunks would hit the spot this holiday season :) yumm

  309. Faith Halverson says:

    I get your emails!

  310. Ashley says:

    Mine would be coffee flavored…. with candy cane topping. Yumz

  311. Tanya says:

    I subscribe to your emails…and LOVE them!

  312. I would put some mochi and chocolate chips in my ice cream! I love adding them to fro-yo, but I bet in ice cream, it would be even better!

  313. Emily says:

    I’d love an ice cream maker to make this recipe!

  314. Cadry says:

    I would add amaretto and maraschino cherries to coconut milk. This ice cream maker has been on my wish list for eons!! Here’s hoping!

  315. Danielle says:

    I would throw in dark chocolate pomegranate seeds, chocolate fudge, and pistachios :)

  316. courtney says:

    I would like to try making a red velvet cake ice cream or a cake batter flavor since I finally found butter extract! Yum yum yum, thanks for the chance to win :)

  317. J says:

    i would absolutely love this ice cream maker!!

    s’mores – using the graham crackers from your recipe and dark chocolate/cocoa powder and vegan marshmallows yum! : )

  318. Amanda says:

    I am subscribed to your emails and I “liked” your facebook page. Please keep the recipes coming!

  319. Sarah says:

    I would make cake-batter ice cream! Yum! I don’t usually like commercial ice cream because I don’t like dairy- making my own from almond or coconut milk would be awesome!

  320. Anne says:

    Cookie dough ice cream is my fav!! Yum!

  321. Danielle says:

    I already like you on FB!

  322. J says:

    I also subscribed to your e-mails!

  323. Jane says:

    I’d add a few tablespoons of pistachio paste and 2 tablespoons of crushed pistachios to make pistachio ice cream!

  324. Lori Finch says:

    Thanks for such a great healthy recipe! I would love to win a ice cream maker!!! I would try to add chopped pecans and caramel sauce….yummy!

  325. Sarah says:

    I subscribe to your emails!

  326. Stephanie says:

    I would love to try this with bits of raspberry, dark chocolate and salty Brazil nuts. Sweet, salty and chocolate, my favorite combination!

  327. claire says:

    I think I would add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter! I am addicted to the stuff, so that’s what I would do :) (and extra chocolate chips!!)

  328. Xina says:

    Customize this, eh? Mmmm. I’d probably add peppermint extract and some mini chocolate chips. Yum!

  329. Lori Finch says:

    Thanks for such a great healthy recipe! I would love to win a ice cream maker!!! I would try to add chopped pecans and caramel sauce….yummy! Adding you to my facebook friends!

  331. J says:

    I also like you on Facebook

  332. Heidi says:

    I would love to try to customizing this ice cream. I love chai lattes, and I think that would be a great, fall flavor!

  333. Lisa Kline says:

    Hmmm, how would I customize the recipe…
    Well, for one, I’d LOVE to do a frozen YOGURT instead of ice cream!
    I’m thinking of trying to do a tart frozen yogurt sweetened with honey, add vanilla, and add granola as a mix in

    I also would love to do a GINGERBREAD ice cream or frozen yogurt using gingerbread spices and even some candied ginger in the ice cream (I looooove ginger).

    Lastly – PEPPERMINT ice cream or frozen yogurt using crushed up peppermint candies and some peppermint extract! Peppermint ice cream is one of my favorites :)

  334. Sarah Spann says:

    well since I love pumpkin,I would make it pumpkin-chocolate flavor by adding pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract..and then add in some crushed cinnamon graham crackers and chocolate chips!

  335. caiti says:

    i liked your page on facebook :)

  336. caiti says:

    and i follow on email :)

  337. Becky says:

    I’m going to have to ask Santa for an ice cream maker (if i can’t win one). I want to try this with my fresh-made almond milk. And I’m thinking pumpkin spice would be yummy.

  338. Chelsea says:

    Ever since reading about your icecream endeavors, I’ve been making it in my vitamix! I love icecream, but have a dairy allergy, so you’ve made me one happy girl. :-)

    In response to your giveaway, my favorite add-ins are rum soaked raisins and freshly grated nutmeg. Ahhh, like eggnog! I also like to throw in a huge handful of dates for a caramel-like flavor.

    Thanks, Katie!

  339. Sarah Spann says:

  342. Becky says:

    And now I’m email subscribed.

  343. Michelle S says:

    Yay for an awesome non-dairy ice cream recipe! Giving up ice cream was the hardest part of going dairy-free for me. I keep trying to convince my friends and family that non-dairy alternatives can be just as good, and I think this may be the key to doing so! I’m a Louisiana girl so pecans toasted in brown sugar are a favorite mix-in (a la pralines!) but I can never say no to cookie dough (easy PB cookie recipe, I’m looking at you!)

  344. Danielle says:

    I already subscribe to your chocolatey goodness feeds :)

  345. Ambika S. says:

    i’d add cookie dough! or mint extract/chocolate chips :)

  346. Chelsea says:

  347. Kendra says:

    An ice cream maker would be amazing to win!! I would probably customize the recipe by adding cherry chunks, cocoa powder, and almond butter:) Cherry chocolate almond ice cream–yum!

  348. Christina DeMott says:

    Yum! I would definitely add some crushed Oreos and Andes Chocolate mints. Mint Cookie Crumble is my absolute favorite! 😀

  349. Rose says:

    Cashews and blueberries :)

  350. Rose says:

    I already like you on Facebook.

  351. Victoria says:

    I would add coconut flakes and coffee to your recipe. I love the two flavors mixed together!! Additionally I’m already a FB follower & email subscriber. Merriest of
    holidays to you and yours!!!

  352. Cindy Paigen says:

    4 ingredients are AWESOME!!!

    Since Agave and me are not friends I would probably use one of the SF Torani syrups (Mmmmmmmm Almond Roca syrup) and add some vanilla protein powder for a little bit of fullness. I have to whip some up now..(well, not right now. I think after work will suffice)

    Cindy

  353. Jessica says:

    I’d add some peanut butter coconut oil and chocolate chips!

  354. Katherine says:

    I would add strawberries!

  355. Rose says:

    And I subscribe to your emails!

  356. Andrew Smith says:

    This is such a great sounding recpie. I just wish I had an ice cream maker to get creative with it. I would probably add cocoa nibs and roasted brazil nuts and chunks of dark chocolate to the base recipe for my first variation. But the possibilities are endless. Great post

  357. Meghan says:

    I would add Oreo’s to this recipe, cookies and cream is my favorite!!!

  358. Missy says:

    Crushed up Candy Canes and a touch of peppermint extract!

  359. Meghan says:

    I get your recipes via email :)

  360. KellyO says:

    I would make vegan peanut butter cup ice cream. Or make your cookie dough (which I am addicted to btw) and swirl it around in vanilla ice cream. Or vegan egg nog ice cream! In short I would pretty much eat nothing but ice cream for quite a while. How many times can I say ice cream in one comment? 😛

  361. Jen says:

    I would add some of your peanut butter cookie dough to make PB Cookie Dough Ice cream!

  362. Christine Rodriguez says:

    I love pistachio ice cream so I would add a little pistachio butter and a few chopped nuts.

  363. Jen says:

    I get your emails!

  364. Mmm this looks great!! I would try some butter pecan version!

  365. Tammy says:

  372. PECAN PRALINE. Every day, all day. If only I had an ice cream maker!

  373. Amy says:

    I really like my ice cream with chunks of cookie dough or peanut butter. I’d love to try adding in some peanut butter cookie dough into this ice cream recipe!

  374. Tammy says:

    I am now following you on twitter!

  375. hipveganchic says:

    i would love to add some chai mix. that would be delectable.

  376. Erin says:

    I would love to win the ice cream maker! I would make some ice cream by using coconut milk and adding cocoa powder. Or I would add espresso and chocolate! Yummy! :)

  377. KellyJ says:

    OOOh, so many ideas to customize with! (If I won of course)
    I would definitely try with coconut milk and then I would try with pure maple syrup and extra maple flavor and maybe add chopped pecans and then maybe cherries and chocolate chips and then….

  378. Lauren says:

    I would definitely be making some GF edible, “raw” cookie dough to put in there! And some peanuts for crunch!

  379. Laura says:

    Tesco direct is part of one the biggest supermarket chains in the UK! I would customise my ice cream by adding leftover broken up christmas pudding into a brandy ice cream base, or maybe a deconstructed mince pie one with ingredients such as- mincemeat (I think you’ll know what this is given you’ve lived in Britain?), maybe some mince pie crust and marzipan swirled in…. or pumpkin and cranberry?! I’d love to be able to make the variety of flavours that exist for dairy ice creams but sadly not for the extremely limited range of vegan ones we have over here ;(

  380. I get your recipe emails already!

  381. Sarah Spann says:

    i subscribed to you through email!

  382. Amy C says:

    I would have to make mine with coconut milk, shredded coconut, chocolate chunks and almonds! Yum yum!!

  383. evan says:

    i would adapt for chocolate peanut butter…my favourite ice cream

  384. i would add peanut butter to it! everything is better with peanut butter. :)

  385. abi says:

    I customised this with gingersnap biscuits and honeycomb. YUM!

  386. Amy says:

    I started following you on Twitter today! Looking forward to some delicious updates :)

  387. Katie Yahara says:

    I might add in basil and lime to a vanilla ice cream. :-) Basil-Lime Vanilla Ice Cream – sophisticated!

  388. Shadia says:

    I would add chopped pecans and caramel sauce for a knock off butter pecan!

  389. i would add some peanut butter chips :)

  390. Shiona says:

    Peanut butter is a MUST as an addition :)

  391. Amy says:

    I liked your page on Facebook!!!

  392. I would swirl peanut butter and dark choco chips!

  393. PECAN PRALINE! All day, every day. If only I had an ice cream maker!

  394. Amy says:

    Bam!! I started getting your healthy recipe emails. Can’t wait for those creative emails to start coming’ my way!!

  395. Jessica says:

    I would customize your ice cream recipe by adding cocoa powder, banana, and peanut butter!

    Side note: For those without an ice cream maker (like myself), you can freeze bananas and turn them into ice cream! First, slice the bananas, then freeze them in tupperware. After they are frozen solid, place them in a food processor. They will start out chunky but will eventually turn into a nice, fluffy banana mixture that you can add anything to!

  396. Anonymous says:

    Yum! Might try adding some espresso, I love a coffee flavor!

  397. Kianni says:

    What would I’d add..hmm….I’d probably make it chocolate adding cocoa powder and sweetener! or maybe even some of the Ovaltine powder I have!

  398. Amy says:

    I liked you on Facebook!!

  399. Shadia says:

    I would add chopped pecans and homemade caramel for a knock off butter pecan!

  400. Shiona says:

    …and I already like you on FB!

  401. Grati says:

    I’d love to make it taste like caramel somehow,but my knowledge as far as “cooking” goes is so bad I have no idea how to do that….so i’d probably just add cocoa or some fruit….But I’d love to make my own ice cream because we don’t have any vegan options around here,nor lighter version….so i must say no to ice cream altogheter:(

    Btw,I liked your facebook page and followed you on twitter,i was already subscibed by email….wow,i feel like an obsessed fan saying this:)))

  402. sarah m says:

    mmm…adding cinnamon and maybe biscoff spread might make it taste like snickerdoodles? Using pumpkin spice soy creamer sounds good too!!

    would love to win this ice cream maker…the kids have been asking for one :)

  403. Jennifer says:

    I’m obsessed with mint brownie ice cream. So I’m thinking I’d add mint extract and some of your yummy vegan brownies in there!

  404. Shiona says:

    I also get email updates!

  405. I’d probably add some cinnamon… Yummmm,cinnamon ice cream–it’s been so long! 😛

  406. Flavor combos with this are needless customizing and tweaking recipes is my favorite thing to do..

    White Chocolate Raspberry (fresh) or Coconut Raspberry (fresh) is one of my favorite flavor combos..
    Smash the raspberries really well and mix them in with the base and freeze.. delicious!

    Or maybe a spicy chocolate adding a little bit of chipotle and cayenne pepper powder to the ice cream with a dark chocolate base.. make a cream cheese topping of some sort.. I’m drooling!!!

  407. sarah m says:

    I already like you on FB! :)

  408. Claire says:

    I’d add some pumpkin pie spice, and stir in some mini cinnamon chips! Gotta have those warm spices if I’m going to eat ice cream in the winter! :-) Thanks for the giveaway

  409. Jill says:

    I would add strawberries and drizzle in melted chocolate to make chocolate covered strawberry ice cream!

  410. Mariesa says:

    I would customize this recipe by adding frozen (or fresh!) strawberries and chocolate sauce. Yumo! Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  411. Brittany R says:

    If I had an ice cream maker, I would have to make a coffee flavored ice-cream and cover it in chocolate syrup! Oddly enough, I don’t actually like to drink coffee, but as ice-cream…it’s the best! Also, eggnog ice-cream is amazing, too :)

  412. I would swirl peanut butter and dark choco chips in!

  413. Jodi says:

    I would have to go with chocolate and coffe. My two favorite flavors! Then there would have to be peanut butter and coconut for the hubby! Yummm!

  414. Tiffany says:

    I would add coconut extract, cinnmon, nutmeg, and some rum or rum extract to make an ice cream version of Coquito.!

  415. Kristyan says:

    My ice cream addition would definitely be lime essential oil- maybe with a little extra lime juice thrown in. YUM!

  416. Kristine says:

    HI Katie
    I just came across your site and love it. I have one teenage girl that is gluten intolerant and I used this recipe by mixing half almond milk and have milk. Also, the gluten free chocolate chip cookies I make for her crumble easy and then she doesn’t know what to do with all the pieces. They were perfect to add to this recipe and make her favorite kind of ice cream. Thank you for all the great ideas.

  417. Frances says:

    Hmm, it’s so hard to choose a flavour! But I think I’d have to go with raspberries and white chocolate, which is simply amazing 😀

  418. Tyffany says:

    I’d add pecans toasted in a little oil and brown sugar. Sort of a praline or butter pecan type thing.

  419. Frances says:

    Oh! and I subscribe to your emails, too (just saw that bit, haha).

  420. I would add butter extract and pecans for butter pecan!

  436. pam says:

    I like the idea of the coconut milk. I’ve been wanting one of those ice cream makers, so I hope I get picked.

  437. Olivia says:

    I would customize this with pieces of the deep dish cookie pie! or brownies :)

  438. Melissa says:

    I think I would probably add coffee or maybe a nut butter and hot fudge. It’s always a toss up. I also love german chocolate cake, so maybe some nuts, chocolate and coconut. Yum!

  439. Kilee says:

    I have always wanted an ice cream maker but worried that I might overindulge in ice cream if I had one :) With your recipe, I don’t think it would matter! I would love to add toasted coconut and chopped macadamia nuts. They remind me of Hawaii!

  440. I’d add pieces of peanut butter cookies, of course!

  441. Lauren says:

    I already liked you on Facebook

  442. Brandi says:

    I would add it to coffee. Mmm.

  443. Andrea M says:

    Oh my word, my husband just asked me if i wanted an ice cream maker and since we are beginning the process of adopting a baby i didn’t want to say yes because we can’t afford it – i would just dream of making little ice cream cones with the new babes!! And I would peanut butter and graham crackers crumbs to your awesome ice cream base! 😀 yum!

  444. A.B. says:

    Mmmm… Vanilla coconut ice cream with chocolate almond butter swirls…. I must make some — immediately! 😀

  445. Cassidy Wooldridge says:

    I would add real vanilla bean specks from the Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans that I purchased from Trader Joe’s. In addition, I would top Katie’s ice cream creation with frozen banana slices and fresh raspberries to make it super indulgent.

    – I already “liked” and follow your blog on Facebook.

    Holy moly I would love an nice cream maker! I would definitely want to try adding pumpkin and spice (like cinnamon, ginger, clov, etc.) to make a yummy fall themed treat, and maybe adding chocolate chips and small pieces of peppermint to make a christmas-y one!

  451. eiren says:

    I think i would have to add something with bananas, peanut butter and chocolate chips! a combo most people can love! 😛

  452. Nicole says:

    I would make a choc choc chip flavor :) yummy

  453. Jenn says:

    I’d add pumpkin!!!

  454. Jill says:

    My internet said my comment didn’t go through, so I think this is my first one to post. If it’s a repeat…sorry!!
    I would add strawberries and drizzle in melted chocolate to make chocolate covered strawberry ice cream!

  455. Moni'sMeals says:

    Wow, would this make me happy! Like you said….*Super-happy face*

  456. Colleen says:

    I would add peanut butter!!! Yum!!!

  457. Heather B. says:

    First, I love your icecream, the first time I saw it I was super excited to make it because of how simple and easy it was. Then I was even more excited because it’s super delicious.

    So, to customize, when it comes to icecream, like any icecream, I can be a peanut butter freak and just want to add copious amounts on top, swirled in, frozen in chunks and crumbled on top, and even just on the spoon so I’ll get a little each bite. However, because of this, ice cream treats can sometimes rack up the calories (even though pb is delicious source of fat and protein ;)) so to make this addiction of mine a little bit healthier, I would keep the original recipe and modify it by adding about 3-4 TBSP peanut butter powder (like PB2) to the mix before putting it in the machine. Then, while its churning, I would put in crushed peanut butter puffins (to give it some texture) and mini chocolate chips (because adding chocolate always makes everything better). I would call it Peanut butter pie ice cream :)

  469. Danielle says:

    Sounds delicious! I would customize it by adding fruit: pineapple, banana or strawberry!

    I would also love a mint version :)

  470. megan says:

    I would try an almond joy ice cream – half almond milk, half coconut milk, add in shredded coconut, crushed almonds and chocolate chips…..

    I would definitely have to add some strawberries and sugar-free chocolate syrup!

  472. I already follow you on Facebook.

    I would add in some dark chocolate chips and maybe some strawberries!

  476. Krysten says:

    I already follow you on Twitter!

  477. Chris says:

    I would add chocolate chips, chocolate fudge, and peanut butter.

  478. Posting on Twitter now! I already follow you.

  480. Molly says:

    To customize I’d add in some dark socialite chips and strawberries!

  481. Andrea M says:

  482. Allison says:

  485. Valerie says:

    Good Morning…ummmm..love your recipe and so simple! I would add some yummey strawberries! Cheers, sincerely, Valerie.

  486. Aubrey says:

    mmmmm!! I think a mocha flavor with instant coffee and chocolate would be AMAZING!!

  487. Isabel says:

    In the spirit of holiday decadence, I would adapt to cheesecake ice cream; add (fat free/low fat/vegan) cream cheese, a pinch of lemon, vanilla extract, and hope for the best! There’s not much that can go wrong with cream cheese and vanilla, after all.

  488. Jennifer says:

    Hi Katie!
    I love this recipe! When I was a child I would beg my parents to always buy cremesicles, I still love that blend of flavors so I would add either orange or clementine slices or orange or tangerine juice! Thanks again for another awesome recipe!

  489. claire says:

    I would add peanut butter and some chocolate chips!!

  490. Jaclyn says:

    I would add anything my son would want! He has several allergies so this would be perfect for him!

  491. Colleen says:

    I like you on fb

  492. megan says:

    I would try an almond joy ice cream – half coconut milk, half almond milk, and add shredded coconut, crushed almonds and chocolate chips…..

  493. Stefanie-Anne says:

    I would make brown sugar & white chocolate ice cream. YUM!

  494. This time of year, I’d suggest adding some canned pumpkin, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, sugar free caramel syrup, and walnuts. Festive and healthy! (Similar to the cottage cheese pudding recipe I’m planning on posting on my own blog this week)

  495. Rachel F. says:

    I’d definitely add some pecans. I’m obsessed with them and put them in everything. Plus maple syrup and pecans… how could that be bad?

  496. Whitney says:

    Organic pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, sprinkled with flaked ginger and cinnamon! I love it all year round :)

  497. jc says:

    i’d add carob!

  498. Nicole S says:

    Of course I already like you on FB!

  499. Rachel F. says:

    I would add pecans. I’m obsessed with them, and put them in everything. Plus maple syrup and pecans… how could that be bad?

    add peanut butter chocolate chips :)

  502. Nicole S says:

  503. Lauren says:

    I would definitely make some GF edible “raw” cookie dough to put in there! And some peanuts for crunch!

  504. katie says:

    I would add cocoa powder and coconut flour! YUMMM!

  505. This looks delish! If I had to tweak it, I would add some cinnamon before popping it in the Cuisinart ice cream machine. I am a sucker for cinnamon, especially around the holidays! Cinnamon ice cream with a little pumpkin-spiced granola would be to die for (and it would give me yet another reason to eat pumpkin 😉 ). Thanks, CCK!

  506. jc says:

    follow on twitter~

  507. Ariel says:

    I would customize this by making a cookies and cream ice cream. It’s my favorite. I follow you on Twitter and Facebook. I also get your emails.

  508. Sarah says:

    For this time of year I would add peppermint extract and cruched peppermint sticks to make my favorite ice cream. Some fruit would also be divine for the summer months!

  509. jc says:

    follow on fcbk too!

  510. Eunice says:

    I would add glazed or candied pecans and caramel. There are so many possibilities! The Cuisinart ice cream maker has been on my wish list.

  511. Sarah says:

    I just signed up for your emails!!! So excited!!

  512. Donna Barnes says:

    I would customize your amazing recipe by adding some unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon.

  513. Kayla says:

    I’m thinkin about a coffee version of this ice cream with chocolate involved somehow, of course. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  514. Autum says:

    I would make it a cake batter flavor! I love yellow cake, but don’t necessarily like the cake texture or the frosting. Then with cake you have to have ice cream, so I love cake batter ice cream. Two treats in one!!!

  515. jess m says:

    I would like to make vanilla honey ice cream….YOUR SITE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  516. Rebekah says:

    I would add cookie dough :-)

  517. Colleen says:

    I get your e-mails :)

  518. Dalores says:

    I would try it with chcolate soymilk. I get your emails and also follow you on Facebook. Love your recipes!

  519. Corey says:

    Mint Chocolate Chip!

  520. Claire says:

    So many entries! I hope this one counts! I think I would use a vanilla pod instead of vanilla extract, and add a bit of cinnamon. I think I would also see if I could blend that delicious vegan cream into the recipe somehow to make it even creamier. It may seem simple, but vanilla and cinnamon are two of my favourite flavours! Also, there is a flavour in Italian gelato that I tried called ‘milk’ flavour. It seems odd but it was an intense milky dream. If there was some way I could achieve that kind of flavour without using the actual milk, I would definitely do that too.

    A pumpkin-pie flavoured ice-cream for the holidays I think would also go down a treat! I’d love to try that! <3

    (I also follow you on twitter @freezingkiss, and like your fb page. xD)

  521. Amy Latterner says:

    I would add a little arrowroot (mixed with water, to make a paste) and then add it to the ice cream mixture. (i’m not sure if you tried that)
    I would add some fresh vanilla bean too! 😀 yummy. And I like you on facebook already

  522. Cari says:

    i think i might add some chai spice and almonds! or maybe some dark chocolate chunks and crystallized ginger :)

  523. Lea says:

    I think it would be yummy to add in peanut butter, or use yogurt and make frozen yogurt

  524. tiffany says:

    i’d add some fun extracts. i’m thinking butterscotch!

  525. Lauren says:

    I liked you on facebook! :) I would add Peppermint extract & chocolate chips!

  526. Ashli Phillips says:

    If I had the opportunity to win this ice cream maker, I would definitely be up for experimenting. Taking the base, I would add vanilla bean to get a stronger vanilla flavor for starters. Then the mix-ins begin! My sinful, yet healthy flavor would be Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Berry Truffle :) Vanilla bean ice cream with ribbons of your chocolate peanut butter frosting recipe, mixed with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Nothing is better than chocolate, peanut butter and berries!

  527. Kim says:

    My kids have diary and egg allergies so I’ve always wanted to make them ice cream. This summer I found this recipe and it works so well – who would have thought to put marshmallows in it. They LOVE it. Just another option…
    http://www.speedbumpkitchen.com/2009/09/ndq-sandwiches.html
    Scroll down to the ice cream recipe. I put this ice cream between homemade chocolate chip cookies for out of this world delicious ice cream sandwiches that we had for BREAKFAST one Sunday morning!

  528. Lauren says:

    I subscribed to your daily emails!!! I think i would add chopped up hazelnuts and nutella to this recipe!

  529. Pamela says:

    I love this!! I would for sure try a minty version. Since finding out how allergic I am to dairy it’s so hard to find good icecream & I woudl MUCH rather make it myself anyway!!
    Pamela

  530. Colleen says:

    I follow you on facebook! :)

  531. Rachel F. says:

    I would add pecans. I’m obsessed with them, and have been adding them to everything. Plus maple syrup and pecans… how could that be bad?

  532. Maegan says:

    CONTEST: Cinnamon and graham crackers would make this ice cream perfect for me!!!!

  533. Allison says:

    I would definitely make a mocha or coffee version of this. I like real coffee, the good stuff, not instant granules. I would make this taste like a rich, smooth, sweet cup of joe/

  534. Cari says:

    i think i would add some chai spice and almonds! or maybe some dark chocolate chunks and crystallized ginger :)

  535. Kit-Kat says:

    I would customize the recipe by adding pumpkin pie spice to the mix: making pumkin ice cream!

    Or I would mix in cookie dough and mini chocolate chips to the finnished ice “cream”, to make a veganized chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream (I would name it CCK’s Choco-Cookie Cream).

  536. sue says:

    I would use chocolate milk in my base since I love any chocolate flavored ice cream. Probably add some caramel swirls and crushed oreos!

  537. Debbie says:

    I want to try toasted almond ice cream made with almond milk! Katie, I love your emails. I like to call you chocolate covered genius!

  538. Heather G says:

    I would like to try the So Delicious brand (coconut milk) of coffee creamers maybe. I have seen hazelnut and vanilla. I also wondered if the So Delicious eggnog would work. Worth trying.

  539. Val says:

    I would probably add chocolate or peppermint right now. Those are the two things I’ve really craving!

  540. Kelly says:

    I like things plain and simple I would mix in some crushed up vanilla bean flavoring :-)

  541. Eleah says:

    I would add cookie dough… or chocolate covered raisins.

  542. Heather says:

    First, I love your icecream, the first time I saw it I was super excited to make it because of how simple and easy it was. Then I was even more excited because it’s super delicious.

    So, to customize, when it comes to icecream, like any icecream, I can be a peanut butter freak and just want to add copious amounts on top, swirled in, frozen in chunks and crumbled on top, and even just on the spoon so I’ll get a little each bite. However, because of this, ice cream treats can sometimes rack up the calories (even though pb is delicious source of fat and protein ;)) so to make this addiction of mine a little bit healthier, I would keep the original recipe and modify it by adding about 3-4 TBSP peanut butter powder (like PB2) to the mix before putting it in the machine. Then, while its churning, I would put in crushed peanut butter puffins (to give it some texture) and mini chocolate chips (because adding chocolate always makes everything better). I would call it Peanut butter pie ice cream :)

  543. Camille- the college girl says:

    If I had an ice cream maker I would make a banana/peanut butter ice cream! That combonation has always sat well with me and I might add a little cinnamon for a kick!

  544. Patricia Blundll says:

    I LOVE FRESH PEACHES. I THINK I WOULD DICE UP A FRESH PEACH AND ADD TO THE ICECREAM. IT WOULD BE DELECIOUS.

  545. Natalie says:

    I would definitely add cookie dough. Chocolate chip cookie dough.

  546. Kaley says:

    Oreo Caramel mmmmmmmm

  547. Becca S. says:

    I would add diced apple, “apple spice,” and crushed oreos… so good! :)

  548. Cari says:

    i like your page on facebook

  549. Amy L. says:

    I would add fresh strawberries and vanilla bean…mmm.

  550. Jacqui says:

    My customized recipe would include tons of chocolate!! Chocolate chips, crushed oreos, brownie bites, maybe a few Twix pieces… :-)

  551. Claire says:

    I liked you on fb!!

  552. tiffany says:

    hmm i would add some fun extracts, like butterscotch! and maybe mix in some graham crackers too.

  553. dani says:

    add chocolate!

  554. Carly says:

    I would put coffee, bananas, and peanuts in my ice cream….sounds like a delicious way to relieve stress during a week of finals (and stay awake)!!

  555. Jacqui says:

    I get your Healthy Recipes as emails

  556. kylee says:

    chocolate chip cookie dough balls in the ice cream!!

  557. Lisa says:

    I’d add Bailey’s Irish Cream! Three cheers for ice cream!

  558. Sherri says:

    Since I am a chef, it’s hard to just narrow down one specific flavor I like, but because of the holidays I think I would make some festive variations to serve. I am thinking gingerbread ice cream would be nice, or maybe blood orange and ginger, or how about pear spice, or even maybe chocolate peppermint patty. All delicious, maybe time for an ice cream social. My ice cream mixer from the 70’s died this summer when I was making concord grape ice cream. Was very bummed. Would love a new one to use and promote!

  559. Julie says:

    I had the best ice cream this summer in East Nashville at Jeni’s. http://jenisicecreams.com/
    I am dying to make ice cream for the first time. I loved the pistachio honey ice cream and my husband loved the brown butter almond brittle. My hope is to get an ice cream maker for Christmas or for our anniversary in a few weeks (hint hint to my hubby) so I can create my own masterpieces. hehe Thanks for your amazing posts. I have made many of your recipes now and always get great feedback.

  560. Carly L. says:

    I liked your page on Facebook

  561. Stevi says:

    I would add peanut butter or PB2!
    I get your emails now too!

  562. I think I would have to add some of my old trusted favorites to the base of this recipe: chocolate and strawberries infused with peppermint! It’s indulgent, sweet, and refreshing all at the same time!

  563. Mollie says:

    I’d add caramel and pralines…yummmm!

  564. Elyse says:

    Like you, Katie, I still love ice cream, even when it’s cold out. AND I can’t go a day without chocolate! So I would customize four ingredient ice cream by adding cocoa powder and some peppermint extract, then fold in some pieces of peppermint bark!

  565. Ros says:

    It has got to be tropical flavour! I’d keep the coconut milk, and have banana for sweetness, mango and crunchy hazlenut pieces :)

  566. Jacqui says:

    I am a fan of you on Facebook

  567. Liz says:

    I am a fan of your facebook page!

  568. Elyse says:

    I also get emails!

  569. Kat says:

    I love adding chocolate chips!

  570. Nikki says:

    I would definitely add hazelnuts. . .so nutty and perfect with sweet ice cream!

  571. Darcie says:

    I would totally throw some crushed peppermints into this. Peppermint ice cream is all I ever want anymore!

  572. Lindsay says:

    I would have to stick with your mint chocolate flavor. It looks exactly like the sugary, unnatural stuff I used to love as a kid!!

  573. Sherri says:

    Since I’m a chef, the possibilities would be endless, but to keep it simple I would evoke the flavors of the holidays right now, gingerbread vanilla ice cream sounds good, or maybe blood orange and ginger, then spice pear or even chocolate peppermint patty. I was even thinking a cranberry concoction could be nice. My ice cream maker from the 70’s died on me while making concord grape ice cream in the late summer, a new machine would be so great and I could teach others as well. I follow you on Facebook, love the new ideas you come up with.

  574. Callea says:

    Healthy ice-cream sounds like an oxymoron…but has been proven wrong! My wildest (vegan) dream has come true! :) I will definitely be making this with the addition of organic unsweetened coconut flakes, SPRINKLES, and finely grated vegan dark chocolate…euphoria awaits! :)

  575. Hilary says:

    I would totally add some peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate chips, to that bad boy!

  576. Breanne says:

    My roommate loves lemon flavored things and has rediscovered the flavor after I made some quinoa for dinner.

    We would love to make lemon-ginger or lemon-basil flavor!

  577. heather says:

    Hubby likes cookies and cream, so I would introduce some kind of chocolate/white filling option.

  578. Callea says:

    I like you on facebook too! An ice cream maker would be a wonderfully dangerous addition to my dorm life !

  579. Heather says:

    I already get your great emails. (I get your blog entries via email)

  580. Lindsay says:

    It doesn’t look like my first comment posted, but definitely mint chocolate and I also like you on Facebook!

  581. Ashley says:

    I would customize it by adding crushed roasted almonds and chocolate chips. Yum!

  582. Lindsey Murphy says:

    i would add ginger snaps because i love them!!! i would also add pumpkin spice because i’m all about anything pumpkin

  583. I would give it a go with egg nog from Silk and add in some cranberries, a new favorite combination of mine :)

  584. Jen says:

    I would love to add dark chocolate chunks, toasted pecans, and peanut butter! Holy yum…

  585. Christina Burrell says:

    I would add mint flavoring and mii chocolate chips.

  586. Cari says:

    i would add chai spice and almonds! or maybe some dark chocolate chunks and crystallized ginger!

  587. I would want to try a variation that has chocolate and coffee flavors mixed together.

  588. Rebecca says:

    You can costumize this by adding 1tsp of coconut extract and 1/2 cup of pineapple to make a pina colada ice cream :)

  589. Cheryl says:

    I’m thinking of trying this with some dark chocolate to make dark chocolate ice cream! Sure would be nice to have a Cuisinart ice cream maker too! I enjoy reading thru your recipes, so many I want to try!

  590. Oooo looks so good, sounds so simple! I think if I were to make this I’d add unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder and crumble up a choc chip cookie dough Larabar to create a chocolate cookie dough-esque ice cream treat. Mmm. I don’t think I can nail down one favorite ice cream flavor but mint choc chip and cookie dough have always hovered near the top of my list.

  591. Julia says:

    Growing up may favorites are cherry-vanilla and mint choc chip.

  592. Fiona says:

    I would love to win the ice cream maker because it is already on my Amazon wishlist! I’ll buy it even if I don’t win, mostly to make vegan frozen yogurt, because I obsess over dairy frozen yogurt which is sold everywhere but vegan fro yo is nowhere to be found! So I can make gallons of it at home and save money and animals! I just love ice cream or fro yo plain, so the only way I would change your recipe would be to leave out the vanilla to let the other natural flavors really shine through! But the sprinkles look awesome with the vanilla, so I think I’d have to try your original recipe too!

  593. beccah says:

    my fav ice cream flavors are ones that arent the usual or at least dont taste like sugar :/ the lemon poppyseed w coconut shavings and gummi bears is reallgy good {coldstone} 😀 im not that great at making non dairy ice creams b/c i dont have an ice cream maker {theyre expensive!! 😮 }

  594. jessica w. says:

    The basic recipe looks great,but I would also add mini peanut butter cups as well as hard shell chocolate too!

  595. mrsluckypants says:

    Wow what an exciting offer! Thank you so much! I would love to win the ice cream maker. We are a dairy free family and the store bought dairy free ice cream is very limited in flavor selection especially since we avoid soy as well and it’s very expensive as well. I love the idea of making our own chocolate chip mint ice cream, or even something as simple as plain vanilla or chocolate. It would also be fun to add in things like chocolate bars or chips, peanut butter, nuts, chai tea… so many possibilities! I have my fingers crossed. Thanks again.

  596. Lizzy Z. says:

    I would add frozen banana and mini peanut butter chips!

  597. Rebecca says:

    You could add ‘bites’ of some homemade no-bake cookies (or maybe cookie dough dips) to make your own cookie dough ice cream blizzard thing! Yum! Especially with all the yummy cookies you make :]

  598. Breanne says:

    I also follow you on facebook!

  599. Becca S. says:

    I would add diced apples, “apple spice,” and crushed Oreos. So delicious!

  600. April says:

    Hi! Love your recipe – I’d probably add some raw cacao, play around with the sweeteners (coconut sugar?), almonds and a Nutella swirl (even though that’s not incredibly healthy). How did you know I just wished for an ice cream maker? Oh, I already like you on FB and receive your emails :-)

  601. Sarah M says:

    I’ve made easy ice cream like that a lot before with sf pistachio pudding mix in it. mmm.

  602. Holly says:

    that ice cream maker is on my christmas list! I would make the ice cream a mint or coffee flavor and add oreos.. mmm..

  603. Kelli says:

    I was just telling my Husband how nice it would be to have our own Ice Cream Maker. We both have dairy allergie and other ones too. So have our own way to make ice cream would be GREAT!!!! We live in a town that has some dairy free frozen treats but because it a small town the prices are VERY VERY high to buy them.

    We ever were taking about how we coudl make dif. kind of ice cream. We talked about “safe” Choc. Chip, Coffee, Mint, GF cookie dough, and we had so many ideas.

    We would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be the win of this maker and it would make a great christmas, gift for us… as money is limited becuase of holidays and our up coming first baby coming soon!

  604. karen says:

    I suppose I would add a frozen banana to it and some chocolate chips!! Thanks for the recipe and the opportunity to win!

  605. Maya says:

    I would add cinnamon!

  606. Kathy says:

    I would probably add chocolate to my ice cream (everything is always better when covered in chocolate) and I wonder what it would taste like to add flavoring such as coconut or some other extract? Yum.

  607. Jeanne says:

    I would add pb and bananas!

  608. Lori Z. says:

    You could add so many things to that!! I think I would have to start with some cocoa and peanut butter. And since it is the season I might try it with some peppermint extract and crushed canes – my daughter loves Peppermint ice cream!

  609. Kim says:

    i would add peppermint extract, dark chocolate chips, and andes mint pieces! chocolate and mint is by far my favorite combo

  610. I’m going mint chocolate chip all the way!

  611. maija says:

    peanut butter cups… they make everything better

    I think i would like to add a little green tea in there. Im an icecream addict!! yum!

  616. I would make the ice cream with some coffee extract and espresso chips!

  617. Ashley says:

    I would love to add some strawberry jam to the vanilla recipe…I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  618. I love eating ice cream in the winter too! I stand in front of my fireplace while eating it, and this always makes my husband laugh. :)

    I would LOVE the ice cream maker! I think I would try out a brownie batter ice cream, or possibly cinnamon ice cream drizzled with honey (that’s one of my all time favorites).

  623. Yifan says:

    I was thinking of mixing in some cappuccino and chocolate chips, though stirring in hot cocoa and mint extract sounds pretty yummy as well…topped off with Soyatoo, preferably :)

  624. ~Jessica~ says:

    I follow on Twitter and have Tweeted the giveaway.

    xxx

  625. Kathy says:

    I would probably add chocolate to the recipe as everything tastes better covered in chocolate.
    I would also like to try adding extracts to see what they might add. Such as coconut, or some other yummy nutty flavor like hazelnut.

  626. Jen@newellnd says:

    I would add cinnamon, sauteed apples and a little brown sugar to make “apple pie” ice cream.

  627. sarah says:

    I just LOVE plain vanilla, so I wouldn’t really want to customise. But I using fresh vanilla pods would make it perfect.

  628. Jennyb says:

    Being a huge dried fruit fan i’d probably soften/soak some dates to blend in & then halve some baby figs for a chunky texture.

    Tesco Direct delivers to the US as well? Interesting to know. I do my weekly grocery shopping from Tescos here in the UK, probably the biggest supermarket over here in the UK. I

    I would customize with cinnamon and chocolate – I really like that combo for some reason.

  637. Jennyb says:

  638. Jade C says:

    Hmmm, I think that I would change the recipe by simply adding a few T of cocoa in place of a little sweetener and maybe roasting some roughly chopped almonds/hazelnuts in Agave and throwing them into the mix?? How does this sound??
    On a separate note..
    I’ve actually been craving ice cream lately, as well ((though it’s been pouring with twin for days here!! Still, what else is a girl to do, when “trapped” inside by the weather, and with nothing but almond, coconut and oat milks, and fun add-ins and flavours, just asking to be used??)) ;);) .
    I do plan to make this soon, so that I can show ol’ Haagen Daaz and Ben & Jerry’s who’s boss and steal Dad’s tastebuds back for good :):) !!
    As usual, keep up the awesomeness!!

  639. 91% Chocolate Lover says:

    I would use coconut milk, add coconut extract, and throw in some shredded coconut (and maybe cocoa powder).

  640. Rebecca says:

    Your could customize this by adding about 1tsp of coconut extract and 1/2 cup of frozen pineapple to make Pina Colada Ice Cream!

  641. Maren says:

    I love pistachio almond. Replace the vanilla extract with almond extract; add some pistachios and some green food coloring!

  642. Peanut butter and chocolate chunks

  643. 91% Chocolate Lover says:

    I would use coconut milk, add coconut extract, and then put in some shredded coconut.

    Wow what a great giveaway, thank you for offering this! We are a dairy free family and love the idea of making our own varieties of ice cream rather than the limited and expensive ones available at the store. I can forsee chocolate mint chip, candy bar, chocolate chip, peanuts, chocolate hazelnut butter, or maybe even chocolate chai tea ad ins to vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The possibilities are endless. I have my fingers crossed. Thanks again.

    I’m in love with all your cake batter creations! The sprinkles are so colorful :) I would love to customize this ice cream by adding blue food coloring and marshmallow fluff to make marshmallow peep ice cream! I’m also tempted to add cookies and cookie dough to another batch. And of course, peanut butter and banana to a third!

  656. 91% Chocolate Lover says:

    Please disregard my comments, my computer was going slow and I thought it hadn’t posted my comments, so I kept on trying different ones. I don’t think I can delete them either. I feel bad…

  657. birdi says:

    Ooo…I don’t know how I’d customize the recipe. I might just make vanilla bc I like it and there are less ingredients to keep in a dorm room!

  658. Lori Z. says:

    I get your emails too!

  659. Sophie says:

    Wow! This is awesome!

    My favorite flavor has ALWAYS been chocolate chip cookie dough!

    But I haven’t had it since becoming gluten free 2 years ago….

    This is the perfect opportunity though!

    Thanks so much Katie! :)

  661. Kristin Gideon says:

    Mmm I would definitely add the cocoa powder to make it chocolate. Then I would add some peppermint extract and chocolate chips for mint chocolate chip. I’d also try adding in some eggless cookie dough. The possibilities are endless!

    I might just keep the vanilla flavor! I like vanilla and I have a dorm room…fewer ingredients to keep in the dorm!

    I have not had chocolate chip cookie dough anything in a long time, so I would definitely make up some of your cookie dough and mix it in to the ice cream.

    My favorite for fall is to add pumpkin and cinnamon! I freeze the pumpkin in ice cube trays and store it in freezer bags for those unavoidable cravings! Yum!

  696. Emily says:

    If I had an ice-cream maker and could make this? I would definitely add frozen berries and nuts! When I was younger, my dad and I used to always get “baseball-chip” ice cream from Baskin Robbins when it was in season and it had berries and nuts. So delicious! But, I haven’t been able to have any since switching to a vegan diet. :)

    Hi, I love your recipe. I would probably add some cacao powder, almonds and maybe a Nutella swirl (even though that doesn’t qualify as healthy). I’ve been wanting to make my own ice cream lately :-)

  700. Steph says:

  707. LouiseinNI says:

    Some seasonal flavours for Christmas would be fun to try – mince pie flavour with some spiced fruit or cinnamon and apple etc. *yummm!*

  708. Becca S. says:

    I would add diced apple, “apple spice,” and crushed Oreos. Delicious!

  714. su says:

    i would add coconut extract and coconut

  715. I would add a touch of peppermint extract and a lot of chocolate chips because mint chocolate chip is my favorite ice cream flavor (the white kind – i hate color dye)

  716. Q says:

    Mmm, finally will give me a reason to The Perfect Scoop.
    I don’t even know what I’d throw in, probably the entire cupboard in turn.

  717. I would love to try some raw vegan ones using cashew milk or almond milk bases. Oooh and coconut milk too!

  718. Catie says:

    If equipped with an ice cream maker, I’d foray into the science, and art, of ice cream making by audaciously experimenting with my own novel creations, such as:

    Cinnamon Roll — I’d mix a hint of my homemade caramel sauce, cinnamon, vegan butter, stevia, and a smidge of molasses into the batter.
    Oatmeal Raisin Cookie — A combination of rolled oats, coconut oil, raisins, and a splash of each vanilla and cinnamon. (And maybe vegan chocolate chips!)
    Red Velvet — I would whip up your red velvet pancake mix and either throw it into the mixer or crumple it on top along with a waterfall of vegan chocolate syrup!

    And I am a fan on Facebook! :)

  719. sarah says:

    Hi Katie! I would try frozen bananas or some pb2…maybe both :)

  720. dark chocolate/peanut butter chips, peanut butter or caramel!

  724. Mary Kate says:

    This ice cream maker giveaway is amazing! If I were to customize the recipe I would make a peppermint mocha flavor using a holiday mocha special version of Kahlua that my mom found while out shopping (its a peppermint mocha flavor) and add some candy cane bits on the top to make it extra fancy!
