Tried all the non dairy ice cream recipes and haven't liked them? Me too! This flax milk ice cream recipe is THE BEST with a creamy, light and airy taste. Easily adapts to make your favorite flavors!
Giving up dairy during the summer months has to be one of the hardest things I've ever done. And one night those cravings struck hard. I had a major craving for some ice cream.
$30 and five pints later I didn't find any alternatives that I liked very much. Some tasted too coconutty (and when you're eating cookies and cream, I just don't want a strong coconut flavor), rice ice cream, and soy ice cream (bleck).
I looked online for alternatives and finally decided that there weren't any that I liked. Avocado ice cream? Um, no.
But while drinking some flax milk I realized that maybe I was onto something. Flax milk is a little more creamier than most milks and doesn't have the strong flavor that cashew, coconut and soy do. It's also not as thin as almond or rice milk.
Maybe, just maybe it could make a great ice cream.
Oh, it did.
This ice cream has a light and airy taste with a great ability to adapt to a variety of flavors. I've chopped up gluten free Oreos and put them in the ice cream for cookies and cream. This time I made mint chocolate chip. Another time I made a rich vanilla. I've even made cookie dough. Either way I've been really happy with the results and haven't felt like I've missed out.
