Homemade Healthy Ice Cream Recipes

Healthy ice cream is suddenly all the rage.

Vegan and sugar free ice cream options are completely taking over the grocery store freezer aisles of Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, and pretty much everywhere else that sells groceries.

Because it’s my job to stay on top of food trends (and because I’m a self-professed ice cream lover who would never turn down an excuse to eat more ice cream), I’ve tried many of these low calorie ice cream alternatives, including Halo Top, Enlightened, Wink, and Arctic Zero.

Spoiler alert: I hate most of them.

Don’t let my opinion stop you if you enjoy any of the brands mentioned above – I know a lot of people who do.

Just for me, I’d rather eat Ben & Jerry’s, Häagen-Dazs, or my favorite vegan ice cream, Nada Moo.

Ice cream is one of my favorite foods, and there are always at least two different flavors in my freezer at any given time.

I also happen to have quite a few homemade ice cream recipes published here on the blog, and in honor of National Ice Cream Day, which is coming up this Sunday on July 21st, here are some of my favorite healthy ice cream recipes!

    This is the perfect post, because I just got a Cuisinart ice cream maker! Thanks always, Katie! The only problem: I am so torn between using my ice cream maker or making nice cream. They’re both so GOOD!

    This is the best post! Thanks for sharing! My husband doesn’t like usually having ice cream in the freezer because he thinks it’s not good for you and we eat it to fast (it’s good for my soul that’s for sure!). So now having some healthier alternatives is great!

    Hi Katie. I didn’t know how to reach you, other than responding to your most recent post. I’ve got a question about the crazy Ranch dressing recipe. I’m allergic to soybean (so tofu), so is there a substitute? I’d really love to make your ranch dressing! Thanks!

      Maybe try some kind of yogurt, such as greek yogurt or a vegan greek yogurt? If you experiment, definitely be sure to report back!

    The Nutella and Mint Chip are luring me to whip them up in my kitchen! BUT, all of these ice cream recipes look incredible! Great vegan renditions of ice cream!

    Hi, what’s the best way to store/container for storing homemade ice cream and how long can you store it for?

    Hi Team!! I bought the cookbook “Hello Breakfast” ages ago (which is awesome) , however a weird thing I’ve noticed is that I seem to be missing the “Vegan Pistachio Ice cream” recipe. In this post it mentions its in the cookbook. So I am wondering, were their multiple versions of it? Unsure if I am missing any other recipes, I just happen to notice this one so far.

    • Jason Sanford says

      You definitely should have it. Emailing you know, so let me know if you don’t see an email within the next few minutes.

    This is a great blog. This is very informational. I like your recipes. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us. Keep up the fantastic work.

    Do you think it’s feasible to use kidney beans in ice cream? I’ve seen in Asian cuisine where red beans have been used in ice cream. I’m super curious about white kidney beans and would love to see that tried on here! I could not find a recipe anywhere. I LOVE having beans for dessert (helps with getting my protein and fiber and helps with my Hypoglycemia) but can get burned out making the same bars/brownies and cookie doughs over and over.
