The Creamiest Almond Milk Ice Cream This homemade almond milk ice cream recipe is super creamy, dairy free, low carb, vegan, and made in the ice cream maker (or not)! And no bananas!

Almond Milk Ice Cream

I normally don’t post recipes that are dairy free, but I know that a lot of people that follow a low carb / keto diet are dairy free.  I wanted to make an ice cream that was super creamy, decadently chocolate, and made without dairy.  I hope you love this Almond Milk Ice Cream Recipe!

When I first started to think about making almond milk ice cream, I was racking my brain with what I can use to make this thick and creamy, dairy free, and low carb.

Avocados!  Ding ding ding!


The ingredients you will need are almond milk, avocados, cocoa powder, sweetener (I used Swerve to make this low carb but you can use coconut sugar as well), and vanilla extract.

Really, you can use any kind of dairy free milk for this recipe…coconut milk, cashew milk, etc.

Vegan Almond Milk Ice Cream

The trick to this almond milk ice cream is to get it as smooth as possible.  I used my food processor, then I blitz it with my immersion blender to get it super smooth.  You can also use a high speed blender.

After I got it super smooth, I transferred it to my ice cream maker and started it up.  This almond milk ice cream took about 30 minutes to freeze.


Pour the ice cream into a plastic zip top bag and seal the top.  Place it in the freezer and periodically pull it out and mush it around until it is ice cream consistency.

Because this has so much almond milk in it, it is going to freeze hard if you leave it overnight.  Just make sure you pull it from the freezer about 20 minutes before you want to serve it.

The reason store bought ice cream is easier to scoop out of the freezer is because of the various gums (guar gum and xanthan gum) they add to the mix.

    Did you figure out a dairy option for the strawberry cheesecake ice cream recipe? I want to try so bad but not a fan of coconut cream flavor? Thank you for all of your great recipes!

      To keep it low carb and dairy free, there is either almond milk with a thickener (like the avocados) or coconut cream. I wish there were more options!
