    Strawberry Blender Ice Cream {Paleo, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free}

    strawberry ice cream

    It was a game changer when I learned that you could make ice creams in the blender with just frozen fruit and coconut milk. I was new to living dairy-free and sugar-free and my sweet tooth was roaring!

    I had invested in a vitamix because they are really convenient when you are switching to a healthier diet. You can make green smoothies, raw soups, nut butters, etc… but, there are more budget-friendly brands and options on the market now (see below).

    High speed blenders like vitamix can blend frozen fruit with little liquid, so you get an ice cream consistency. Regular blenders and food processors can still make these ice creams, but they will have a consistency more like frozen yogurt.

    You can also make infinite flavor combinations using any fruit, herb or spice. Try the recipe below and then get creative with different flavors!

    This recipe is kid-tested and approved too, so you know it’s good!

     

    Strawberry Blender Ice Cream

    Serves 1

    Ingredients:

    • 8 large frozen strawberries
    • 2 T of canned coconut milk (the white portion that rises to the top of the can)
    • 2 T filtered water
    • pinch sea salt
    • 1 t vanilla extract
    • Sweetener of choice:
      2-3 T of raw local honey OR
      2 pitted dates OR
      1 dropperful liquid stevia extract OR
      1-2 packets stevia powder

    Directions:

    1. Add all ingredients to a high power blender, liquid first, then strawberries on top.
    2. Blend until creamy. For a food processor or blender, you will have to add more water and stir as you go. For high power blender, you can put on high speed and use the “tamper” to push the berries into the blades.
    3. Enjoy! Leftovers can be stored in the freezer and thawed before enjoying.

    “High Power Blender” – My favorites are:

    TriBest – DynaBlend Horsepower Plus High Power Blender DB-850G

    Vitamix Standard Blender, Black (Certified Refurbished)

    Enjoy the ice cream, and get creative with the flavors. You can use any frozen fruit!

    Keep taking back your health,
