Dairy-Free Almond Milk Vanilla Ice Cream

Serves: 4-6 • Total Time: 35 mins-7 hours (depending on your freezing method)  • FODMAP Rating: medium

Indulge in the creamy goodness of dairy-free almond milk vanilla ice cream! This is a great dairy free low fat option compared to many coconut milk recipes. This ice cream offers a perfect balance of almond milk, sweetness, and vanilla. There are two ways to freeze it. It goes a lot faster if you have an ice-cream maker (takes about 1/2 hour) but if you don't it does work well in the freezer. While it might require a few hours of chilling and freezing, the end result is worth the wait. Make sure to add your favorite toppings!

2 cups almond milk 
1/2 cup granulated sugar (or sweetener of choice)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Pinch of salt



  1. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of almond milk with the cornstarch until smooth to create a slurry. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the remaining almond milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt over medium heat.
  3. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar.
  4. Once the mixture is simmering, gradually whisk in the cornstarch slurry.
  5. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove the saucepan from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  7. Once cooled, transfer the mixture to either a ice cream maker for 30 minutes or a container with a lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until well chilled.
  8. Serve the dairy-free almond milk ice cream scoops in bowls and add your favorite toppings!
