In the spring and summer months, ice cream is a staple in our home.  Who am I kidding?  Ice cream is a staple in our home year round.  I LOVE ICE CREAM!  A lot.  

We are feeling the heat in Northern California.  Hot, sticky, stubborn heat.  This makes me want to relax all day and sip on my favorite homemade lemonade + eat lots and lots of refreshing, delectable, cooling ice cream.  Sounds lovely doesn’t it?

Why Make Ice Cream at Home? 

1. It’s good for you!  Seriously, it is.  
Ice cream is one of my favorite nourishing snacks. Conventional store-bought ice cream is loaded with way too many ingredients + things that your body doesn’t recognize.  Homemade ice cream is nourishing + loaded with good fat … healthy fats are essential for our bodies.  

2. You can choose what ingredients to use … like coconut milk + organic maple syrup. 

3. Ice Cream is awesome. The End. 

Enough said … enjoy the ice cream!

I get all of my vanilla beans and other vanilla goodies from Beanilla. I’ve tried a ton of brands of vanilla and vanilla beans and Beanilla is by far the best quality I’ve found! Make sure you check out their Bean Bucks Rewards program so you can save on future orders.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dairy-Free, Autoimmune Paleo
Serves: 8
  1. Add strawberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla + coconut milk to the blender.
  2. Blend on medium setting until smooth and combined. No strawberry chunks should remain.
  3. Prepare ice cream maker. Turn ice cream maker on and pour strawberry mixture into the ice cream maker. Mix according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
  4. Ice cream will start to have a "soft serve" texture {mine takes about 15-20 minutes}. This is my family's favorite way to eat it. If you prefer it to be a little firmer, use a wooden spoon to transfer ice cream to a large airtight container and place it in the freezer. Make sure to lick the spoon when you're done!
  5. Yield: Makes about 1 quart of ice cream.

  2. I can’t have maple syru. Can I use coconut sugar in its place?


    Posted 03/26/15

  3. Thank you so much for the recipe. I just made the ice cream and it turned out great!

  4. Coconut milk is giving me a tummy ache right now. How does almond milk do as an ice cream base?


    Posted 05/03/16

    • Hi Jessica – It makes more of an ice milk texture. It has a much higher water content and not enough fat to make smooth and creamy ice cream. It also sets up WAY harder in the freezer due to the extra water. Hope that helps! 🙂

  5. My father in law is diabetic. Is there a low glycemic sweetener substitute? Can I use Truvia?


    Posted 05/30/16

    • Hi Sarah – It’s really going to depend on his personal needs, but I do know that some diabetics have been able to use stevia and the sugar alcohols (like xylitol, erythritol, etc.) without problems. That said, the should really check with his doctor just to make sure those are OK. Hope that helps! 🙂

  6. I live in Alabama, and we have to have homemade ice cream in this sweltering summer heat! Made this today and it absolutely hit the spot! It is the best “ice cream” I’ve made so far this summer since being AIP. Even my husband (not AIP) reallllyyyy liked it! Thanks so much for this recipe!

    The second batch I made today, I put a little bit less lemon zest than the first batch, and I liked it better, but hubby liked the more lemon taste of the first batch. The second batch, I also went ahead and added the whole carton of the coconut milk (Aroy-D 8.5 oz) and it seemed to do just fine. I used the Rival ice cream maker and it was perfect at 15 minutes.


    Posted 07/09/16

    • Oooooooh Lynda! So happy that this recipe hit the spot! Woot! That makes me happy! 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to swing back by and share! 🙂 P.S. My sister live in Alabama too! I should tell her to make this! 🙂
