Good news!! You don’t need an ice cream maker to make ice cream! I know, I too jumped for joy when I made this discovery.


I normally love making vegan, dairy-free ice cream using frozen bananas. However, sometimes the banana flavor can be overpowering. So I got to work and researched other ways to make vegan ice cream without frozen bananas and bam – coconut milk came to the rescue!

How to Make Dairy Free Coconut Ice Cream

The key to this ice cream is stirring it once every hour as it freezes. You’re essentially mimicking what an ice cream maker would do. The other pro-tip is that you MUST use full-fat coconut milk from a can. The coconut milk in the cartons is not creamy enough.


Lavender is known for its anti-anxiety, relaxation benefits and makes a unique addition to ice cream that works beautifully with the vanilla, honey, and coconut. Imagine that, a 4-ingredient ice cream that helps you relax. Yes, dreams do come true!
