If you’re a fan of peaches and vanilla, and you can’t consume dairy (or choose not to for health or personal reasons) then you are going to love this Dairy Free Vanilla Peach Ice Cream!
Dairy Free Vanilla Peach Ice Cream
What pairs well with a hot summer day? A delicious bowl of ice cream! But if you are like me and you are trying to cut out dairy due to lactose intolerance, then regular ice cream is not an option. Now don’t get me wrong, I love regular ice cream. And I could probably pop a lactaid pill and be ok with it but I am not going to do that. I finally decided to accept the fact that most dairy bothers me. I seem to be ok with Greek Yogurt, so I will probably consume that occasionally. But as for everything else, including my main weakness, cheese, I’m saying goodbye to it all.
That looks delicious, doesn’t it? That’s Dairy Free Vanilla Peach Ice Cream. I made it with fresh peaches, coconut milk, vanilla hemp milk, vanilla extract and sugar. Yep, that’s all you will find in this ice cream. None of those scary additives that you find in store bought ice cream. And none of that dairy that you can’t consume. I used regular, full fat coconut milk. I used unsweetened vanilla hemp milk. You can find hemp milk at health food or organics stores such as Whole Foods.
Let’s talk about taste. This ice cream tasted good. But I think it would have tasted better had I used strawberries rather than peaches. The taste of raw peaches isn’t something I’m a huge fan of. But for some reason I was hell-bent on making vanilla peach ice cream so that’s what I went with. If you love peaches, you will love this. If you prefer other fruits, sub the peaches with something else! Enjoy the recipe!
- 2 cans of full fat coconut milk
- ¾ C unsweetened vanilla hemp milk
- 3 peaches, peeled and diced
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- ¾ C granulated sugar
- pinch of salt
- pinch of nutmeg
- Puree the peaches in a food processor.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, vanilla, salt, hemp and coconut milks. Whisk in the pureed peaches and nutmeg.
