I’m back with another healthy vegan ice cream recipe friends! I am seriously addicted to making homemade vegan ice cream this year. It’s so much fun! It took me a bit of time to master the base recipe, so this might be my last ice cream recipe this year, but you can definitely count on more healthy vegan ice cream flavors coming next summer!

How to make healthy vegan desserts:

I am a health nut, I’ll admit to that. And I absolutely love making vegan desserts. How do I make these two passions of mine work? It’s simple I just use plants! I really feel like all the ingredients we could ever need are found in natural. And that’s exactly how I create my all natural recipes, by using nature of course! I have so many healthy whole foods plant based dessert recipes just like this vegan strawberry ice cream on my blog. You can find some of my top picks here:

Is this Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream Naturally Sweetened?

All of my recipes use simple, clean, plant based sweeteners – no refined sugars around here! This vegan strawberry ice cream recipe is no exception. There are so many sources of natural sugars readily available to us that it doesn’t make sense to make recipes using refined sugars. In my mind, refined sugars include: white and brown sugar, coconut sugar, agave, corn syrup, as well as any artificial sweeteners. How do I make the best naturally sweetened vegan ice cream?

There are a couple different whole foods plant based sweeteners that I just keep going back to because they are so incredible. My all-time favorite natural sweetener has to be dates! I just love them so much! They are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and they are high in fiber. Both of these are things I try to keep in mind when choosing a natural sweetener. Medjool dates work best in this vegan strawberry ice cream, because they add sweetness and help to elevate the richness of this ice cream recipe.

Another one of my favorite natural sweeteners is Maple Crystals. Unfortunately, maple crsytals do not work for this recipe, because they can be melted. Which is super fantastic for vegan baking, but not great for vegan ice cream. I recently discovered maple crsytals and they are an absolute staple in my kitchen! I order mine from Wilderness Poets.

Why make this non dairy strawberry ice cream?

This vegan strawberry ice cream recipe is made using simple non dairy ingredients like coconut milk and cashews. These plant based ingredients create a creamy decadent summer dessert recipe! Unfortunately this recipe is not a low fat vegan ice cream (stay tuned!). However it is made with clean simple ingredients and therefore healthy. If you’re interested in making this healthy vegan strawberry ice cream low-fat, you can always add more liquid and churn it for longer. I would suggest adding soy milk (unsweetened). If you add a little bit it, it will lower the total fat content of the ice cream, and make a much larger batch!

Honestly though, I adore this recipe as is. In my opinion if you’re going to make ice cream: go big, or go home! There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a high fat meal as long as it is made with healthy ingredients! This non dairy strawberry ice cream is the perfect indulgent healthy vegan dessert!

    The recipe was really yummy. I used date paste as sweetener instead of whole meedjol dates and it worked. Thanks!
