No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

Easy No Churn Ice Cream Recipe


Vegan Ice Cream

It’s so exciting to share a healthy vegan ice cream recipe.  Often, I pick up vegan desserts around the grocery store and quickly toss them back after reading the tons of artificial sweeteners, emulsifiers, and other ingredients.  For a truly classic vanilla ice cream,  use a different milk for the condensed milk than for the ice cream.  Although coconut milk is an easy replacement not everybody loves the taste of coconut in treats.  Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, consider using almond milk for the condensed milk and coconut cream for the ice cream!


Homemade Ice Cream

Nothing feels better than eating something you feel 100% good about.  A scoop of homemade ice cream is just that.  A treat you can enjoy and share with friends and family guilt free.  The best part about making your own ice cream is that you can easily adjust one or all of the ingredients to match your specific dietary needs.  

Making your own treats gives you the power to eat what you would in “your perfect world”.  In addition, to enjoying a healthy treat that’s good for your health, you also get to feel good about making and sharing it!

Egg Free Ice Cream

Most homemade ice cream recipes call for a few egg yolks!  Of course, this is a problem for special diets such as vegan or strictly egg free.  

Instead of using the egg to get that perfect consistency we whip up the sweetened condensed milk and it effortlessly replaces the egg content.

This vanilla ice cream is perfect for egg free diets or anybody with a possible egg intolerance.  However, the final consistency is still as great as the classic vanilla ice cream we all know and love. 


Low FODMAP No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

Finding low FODMAP recipes can be tough.  Especially, since not many people know about the diet.  For a low FODMAP friendly ice cream you don’t need it to be dairy free!  Instead, it needs to be low in lactose!  Simply, this means either raw milk which contains the enzymes and bacteria that digest the lactose, or going with a milk alternative.  

Pretty often, people mistake low FODMAP diets as highly restrictive and permanent.  In reality, most of us limit FODMAPS and avoid them all together when we notice we are sensitive to them.  For instance, you choose to have just a few fries, or just a taste of cheese, etc. because too much makes you feel sick.  Usually, people follow this diet because of digestive issues (IBS, bloat, wonky digestion, etc.) see more on FODMAPS here.  

Generally, the idea is to keep FODMAPS low.  Therefore, yogurt, cheese, milk, and other dairy products are quite limited.  Lactose is a disaccharide. So, lactose intolerance problems as explained by Elaine Gotschall refer to being able to break down the milk sugar molecule.  Essentially, this means that treats like ice cream are mostly limited unless you can digest (and have access) to raw milk or healthy dairy alternatives.  

In this instance, if you particularly avoid all forms of dairy not just lactose, then go with a coconut milk base for the condensed milk and ice cream recipe.  Alternatively, you can use a combination of your favorite non dairy milk.
