Whether you’re vegan, trying to cut back on dairy, or simply curious to try something new, almond milk ice cream is the perfect choice.

Dairy free ice cream is hugely popular right now, and even mainstream companies such as Halo Top, Haagen Dasz, Breyers, So Delicious, and Ben & Jerry’s are jumping on board, offering their own lines of nondairy ice cream flavors in regular grocery stores nationwide.

But almond milk ice cream definitely isn’t new for me – I’ve been making it for over a decade!

And today this creamy almond milk ice cream joins the growing list of vegan ice cream recipes I’ve posted on the blog, including all of the following:

Almond Milk Ice Cream Flavors

Chocolate: Follow the recipe for vanilla almond milk ice cream below, and add 1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder. Feel free to throw in some chocolate chips or pieces of Vegan Brownies after churning!

Mint Chocolate Chip: Use a neutral nut butter such as raw cashew or coconut butter in the base recipe below, and add 1/8 tsp pure peppermint extract, or more for a stronger mint flavor. Be sure your extract says pure and peppermint on the label.

Peanut Butter: Choose peanut butter in the recipe below, and increase it to 2/3 cup for a stronger peanut butter flavor if desired.

Strawberry: Use only 1 1/2 cups almond milk in the recipe below. Add 1/2 cup mashed strawberries, and use a neutral nut butter such as raw cashew or coconut butter. Stir in 1/2 cup diced strawberries if desired just before serving.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: Use the base recipe below, and stir in pieces of your favorite cookie dough or the dough of any of these healthy cookies recipes.

The base recipe can be no churn, sugar free, low carb, keto, and of course vegan.

And yes, other types of milk—such as soymilk, coconut milk, and cashew milk—work for this ice cream as well. One of my favorites is Almond Breeze almond cashew blend, or you can even make your own almond milk or Oat Milk at home and use that!

Almond Milk Ice Cream

An easy and dairy free creamy almond milk ice cream recipe you can make at home!
4.89/5 (62)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 4 – 6 servings


  • 2 cups Almond Breeze Almond Milk or milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice, or allergy-friendly sub
  • 1/3 cup sweetener of choice, sugar free if desired
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • *If you don’t have an ice cream maker or high-speed blender, see these directions.
    Whisk together all ingredients. If you have an ice cream maker, simply pour the mixture in and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions for your specific machine. Or if you have a high-speed blender such as a vitamix, pour the whisked ingredients into ice cube trays and freeze, then blend the frozen cubes until smooth, using the machine’s tamper to help it blend evenly. Either eat straight from the machine or freeze an hour for a firmer texture. Due to the lack of preservatives and filler ingredients, homemade ice cream is best the day it’s made – however you can technically freeze for up to a month and thaw before eating.

 Huge thanks to Almond Breeze for sponsoring this post. Their cashew and almond milks have been my go-to nondairy milks for more than a decade, so I was really excited for the chance to work with them. The recipe and opinions in the post are my own.

    I am not a fan of ice cream, but made this for my husband. I did the vitamix method. when he. When he couldn’t eat the whole batch, I poured it into popsicle molds and froze them. I thoroughly enjoyed the freeze pops.
    I used almond butter, I have a peanut butter batch freezing now!
    Yummy and guilt free.

    I like the fact that you are trying to help people enjoy a healthy dessert but your videos are so fast. You don’t take the time to explain each item. Very hard for a man that has to get off of sugars and has acid reflux to understand actually your videos are too fast each process should be done in a slow easy going fashion. I’m only making this comment because I really want to learn how to make almond milk ice cream but your presentation is must too fast for a beginner like me

    I have found that using Swerve or Lakanto in ice cream recipes will have a lot of crystallization if not eaten right away. Do you have any suggestions for making a batch and storing the ice cream in the freezer for future use?

    • Maria_in_NJ says

      Allulose works well and doesn’t make the ice cream hard when put in the freezer. Tried erythritol but the ice cream gets rock solid in the freezer.

    Hi – can this recipe be made without any sweeteners at all? I’m talking zero added fruit, sugars (natural, artificial), honey, etc. I have to avoid any and sugars. Thanks!
