Roasted Fig and Ginger Ice Cream by Blahnik Baker
Hi all and happy Friday! I’ve been super busy lately with school, work and studying for the GRE that I was going to take this weekend (but am now postponing) so my pal Zainab from Blahnik Baker is taking over the blog today to share the crazy good Roasted Fig and Ginger Ice Cream with you. Enjoy!
A dairy-free and vegan ice cream combining the wonderful flavors of roasted figs, coconut and ginger.
Hello This Gal Cooks fans! I’m Zainab and I write the dessert blog Blahnik Baker. I love creating and baking elegant sweet treats and enjoy taking beautiful pictures of them. I know…I do have an issue but my love for baking and blogging has brought so many great people into my life. One of these fabulous people is Julie, your host here at This Gal Cooks. She is one of my good blogging friends and a trusted adviser. When she called out for some help this week as she studies for her exam, I was so happy to come over.
I know Julie recently changed her diet due to dairy intolerance so I created this dairy-free, vegan and GF roasted fig and ginger ice cream for her (and you!) to enjoy this summer. To be honest, given how creamy, delicious and flavorful it is, you will not miss the heavy cream that typically makes an appearance in regular ice cream. I love using coconut milk as a dairy substitute in baking as it not only makes moist cakes; it also creates creamy ice cream (double win!!).
Have you had tried figs? I know they are hard to find in some places. Do you enjoy them? I love them and recently have been obsessed with them since they make the best sweet or savory dishes. For a richer flavor in this ice cream, I roasted the figs in brown sugar, honey, ginger and fresh lemon zest. This brought out the wonderful bold flavors ,which were then combined with coconut milk and honey. This ice cream is incredibly refreshing and delicious. You need to try it soon!

Thank you for having me today. I hope you enjoyed this recipe. I’d love for you to visit me over at Blahnik Baker where you will find more of my recipes. Julie, I hope your exams go well :) Good Luck!
I LOVE fig but I’ve never had it in ice cream. What a great idea, Zainab! And beautiful pics too. Good luck with studying, Julie! You will do great!
This is beautiful, Zainab, love the flavors!!!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out Zainab’s ice cream, Matt!
Any idea how I could use dried fish in this recipe? Fresh figs are hard to come by where I live.
FIGS not fish
Thank you so much for having me today Julie! I am glad you are giving yourself more time to prepare for the exams. Have a great weekend!

I eat figs by the basket all by myself! I’ve been finding them lately and have been thinking about new ways to prepare them. This ice cream sounds delicious! Pinning. :)
Good luck with the GRE Julie! I’m glad you are getting this (very deserved!) break.
Zainab, you are blowing my mind with all these incredible ice cream recipes! And it is dairy free! The color of this dessert is stunning. So naturally gorgeous! The flavor combo is amazing too; figs and ginger rock. Pinning!
I’m a serious ginger girl…whether it’s powdered, grated, in thin slices piled on top of my sushi…so the fact that this ice cream has ginger means I would love it. Then you went and added amazing fig? Yes please! And the photos are so gorgeous!
This looks almost too beautiful to eat. Almost. ;) What amazing flavors together, Zainab! Pinned!
Figs just don’t show up in my part of the country, but in the last few years I have been having a few here and there and totally enjoying them. Also in my world there is NO ice cream that isn’t delicious. I love the unique flavor combo this is. The BEST luck with your exams!!!!
Coconut milk ice-cream is the best thing that ever happened to me awh yes! Can you tell that I’m absolutely loving this honey & figs combo? ;) It looks fantastic!
Hope you get to relax soon Julie! xx
this flavor combination is pretty awesome – plus.. ICE CREAMM!! (Eddy Murphy circa 1985)
LOL! It is a pretty good combo, isn’t it?!
