  1. Yum!! I’ve tried this with peanut butter too, and this is fantastic. If you do use the coconut milk you suggested, do you use the canned coconut milk or the shelf-stable type such as So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk? Thanks for the great recipes!!

    1. You can use either, I guess. But if you want the texture/richness of ice cream, I meant the canned kind. I actually don’t like the SoDelicious one because I think it tastes watery, so I’m not sure how it would be in this recipe. I really like using Silk almond milk in this recipe.

      1. Thanks for replying. I actually had a can of the lite coconut milk in my pantry, so I whipped up a batch using 1/3 cup canned lite coconut milk and 2/3 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze for the liquids. I’ve just put the batch in the freezer. Can’t wait to try it tomorrow!

        I agree with the SoDelicious milk: it does taste watery.

        I have made this using So Delicious Original Coconut Milk and it turned out alright :) Not creamy like ice cream, but it still tasted really good! Next time I will try using 1/2 So Delicious Original and 1/2 So Delicious Creamer (Much thicker liquid) :)

    AMAZING! Espically when drizzled with hot chocolate and caramel syrups :) Have you ever thought to make a waffle cone to complement the ice cream?

    1. Mmm that sounds like a great idea!

    Does a regular blender work instead of a Vita-Mix?
    I tried the recipe as follows:
    I froze the mixture in a shallow plastic container untill solid (I used 3/4 cup soymilk and 1/4 cup soy coconut milk instead of the almond milk). The freezing process took 11 hours. I thawed it in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and the result was more of an icee slushy.
    So, would a regular blender help turn it into more of an ice cream texture after the microwaving like your pictures show? (it looks so perfect, like the real thing!)
    I so badly need my ice cream, because regular soy ice cream is so expensive, and icees just won’t do right now (although that’s not a bad idea; you could try to make cherry slushies!).
    HELP!!!

    1. No. As it says right in the recipe, it needs to be a vita-mix to get the ice cream consistency.

      1. Anonymous says:

        bummer. I just looked to see what a vita-mix was and saw prices varying from $300-400. Guess I won’t be making ice cream for awhile. :(

      2. Yeah, they are expensive :(
        As an alternative, this recipe is similar: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/12/07/four-ingredient-ice-cream

        It uses an ice cream maker, but they can be as cheap as $40… and even cheaper if you print off a 20%-off coupon for BedBathBeyond :).

      3. Aubrey says:

        Hat ice cream makers do you recommend for single girls wanting to make vanilla ice cream with almond milk or juice?

      4. I have a Cuisinart. I actually saw it as cheap as $32 at Costco!

    Hey my friend Caroline told me about your blog and I was wondering if you could help me. My boyfriend is veyr allergic to any type of milk butter etc. what would you recommend soy/ almond milk if I am a poor college student wanting to make him something he can have? Also are there any types of chocolate without milk in it?

    1. Hi Linda!

      I really like either Almond Breeze or Silk almondmilk. But there are a TON of soymilks, ricemilks, coconutmilks, and hemp milks on the market, so just look around your local health food store (or even the natural food section of a regular grocery store).

      And yes, there is vegan chocolate :). Some of the ones I buy: Ghirardelli semi-sweet (gold bag), Whole Foods vegan brand (green bag) or Whole Foods dark chocolate mini chunks, or Enjoy Life brand. Or, sometimes I crumble up some Endangered Species flavored chocolate bars for flavored chocolate chips :).

    Do you have points plus values figured into your nutritional values? Or if you included the fat, carbs, protein and fiber your readers could figure it out themselves. I just discovered your blog and can’t wait to try some of your yummies! But am doing weight watchers now so need to factor in the points.
    Thanks!

    1. I’ve started to add the carb counts to my more-recent recipes, because a lot of people have asked for the full nutritional values.

    I think I stumbled upon the answer to using a less than stellar blender to make Katie’s ice cream recipe (with slight modifications). I’m also going to heavily emphasize that I have the patience of a two year old so I need to eat my ice cream within a few minutes of having a craving, and due to a recent move I’m stuck in temporary housing with kitchen appliances that are crappy.
    Long intro….
    Take the soy/almond/etc milk, vanilla extract, sweetener, etc. and throw in a blender (don’t bother freezing) and blend.
    Add a bit of guar gum (depending on the amount of liquid you put in above you may have to modify but anywhere between 1/2-1 tsp and you can get it at WF) and blend again
    Throw in a bunch of ice cubes and crush, grate, blend and eventually liquefy
    DONE

    I’ve used this receipe to make pumpkin pie ice cream (IC), coconut IC, vanilla IC, fudge swirl IC, peanut butter IC, trail mix IC (with cinnamon, dried unsweetened fruit, nuts), etc. It will come out the consistency of soft soft serve. If you want to firm it up a bit throw it in the freezer for a few minutes (enough time to clean out the blender so you can make the second batch if the cravings persist)

    Do you have a recipe for cookies and cream ice cream with the vitamix? I guess I can just make the vanilla bean one and then just pulse in some oreo cookies?

    Awesome website! Wondering if anyone has tried using the ice cream setting on the Vitamix instead of freezing/thawing process? Although, I have yet to create ice cream with my Vita, never comes out with the desired consistency. Thanks!!
