The 5 Best Vegan Ice Cream Flavors to Look Forward to in Summer 2022

Gone are the days where lactose intolerance can be used as an excuse to avoid your favorite treats. And more importantly, gone are the days were vegans and vegetarians are confined to a select group of food able to meet their dietary requirements.

The world has changed and become more inclusive. Plant-based diets are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people hear of the health benefits – not to mention the fact that it’s an eco-friendlier approach to life.

This means that even your favorite treats that were once off limits are now more easily accessible. Ice creams can now be made using plant-based milk and creamers as a base, while utilizing only the best vegan ingredients to create the burst of flavor that you look for with every scoop of ice cream.

That’s right, in addition to being able to enjoy a scoop of ice cream, you also have the chance to choose from a wide range of vegan ice cream flavors.

Our Favorite Super Easy Vegan Ice Cream Recipe

As with the traditional ice creams, there are easy to follow recipes to make your own at home. The plant-based ice cream recipe below has to be the simplest and best vegan ice cream recipe to make at home that we’ve tried.

Easy Homemade Plant-Based Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews (Must be soaked overnight in water and then drained)
  • 2 cans of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt

Method

  1. Soak the cashews in water overnight and drain just before making your ice cream.
  2. Ensure that your ice cream bowl has been in the freezer overnight to speed up the churning process.
  3. Pop the soaked cashews, vanilla extract, sugar, salt and coconut milk in a blender and blitz until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a bowl and leave to chill in the fridge for four hours. It can be left to chill for up to 2 days if you’re not in a rush.
  5. Once the mixture has chilled, pour it into your ice cream maker and leave to churn for 25 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately as a soft serve or freeze for a more solid scoop.
  7. Scoop the mixture into a container and place a layer of plastic wrap against it. Carefully wrap the outside of the container as well to prevent ice crystals from forming while freezing.
  8. Freeze the best nondairy homemade vanilla ice cream for 4 hours to set and then serve with your favorite toppings.
