Our family is obsessed with making homemade, dairy-free ice cream, even in winter.
Because when you have an easy convenient ice cream maker (affiliate) and candy canes on hand, why not?
For basic peppermint ice cream, we love natural candy canes and natural food coloring from Natural Candy Store. (affiliate)
The boys absolutely adore this flavor any time of the year, and you’ll love it, too!
DAIRY-FREE PEPPERMINT ICE CREAM
1 cup plain dairy-free coffee creamer
1/2 cup dairy-free milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
red food coloring
2 large candy canes crushed
Mix all ingredients together except the candy canes.
Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker according to manufacturer directions. It takes about 20-30 minutes in our gel machine.
When ice cream is done churning, add the crushed candy canes.
Put ice cream into the freezer to set for about 20-30 more minutes.
Garnish with small candy canes.
My boys both say peppermint ice cream is their new favorite flavor. Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream didn’t stay at the top too long. 😉
