Creamy Strawberry Ice Cream (Dairy-Free)
Serves: 1 quart
  • 1 pound (455 g) fresh strawberries
  • ⅔ cup (160ml) maple syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1½ teaspoons powdered gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups (475 ml) full fat coconut milk
  1. Directions:
  2. Wash, hull, and cut the strawberries in half. Place them in a large bowl and coarsely mash them together with the maple syrup, lemon juice, and salt. Let sit for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water in a small microwaveable bowl and leave to bloom for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the macerated strawberry mixture and the coconut milk into a blender and purée till smooth.
  5. Gradually heat the gelatin mixture in the microwave in short bursts till the gelatin has melted. Do not let it boil. Stir the melted gelatin into the strawberry mixture until well combined. Chill till very cold.
  6. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy right away as a soft serve, or transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze for a few hours or till scoopable.
  7. The ice cream will keep for about 1 week when stored in an airtight container. Once stored in the freezer, for the best consistency, let it sit out at room temperature till easily scoopable.
