Making safe, homemade ice cream for my milk allergy son and whole family is one of my favorite things to do.
And it’s one of my fortes in the kitchen, along with soup and baking. 😉
Ice cream is so simple.
Yet, it makes for special memories my kids talk about all the time.
We can all remember ice cream being part of our childhood.
And our kids deserve that, too, even with food allergies.
Though there are several dairy-free ice creams on the market these days…
making my own is less expensive.
And it’s actually fun!
I love experimenting with different flavors and creating treats the boys request.
Today, we have Maple Coconut Ice Cream for you!
Instead of using dairy-free milk like we usually do in our other ice cream recipes, we use canned coconut milk.
It makes very creamy dairy-free ice cream.
The recipe is below!

DAIRY-FREE MAPLE COCONUT ICE CREAM
Makes 4 Servings
1 can coconut milk (full fat)
1/2 cup dairy-free milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
Whisk all the ingredients together (except sprinkles) in a large measuring cup or bowl.
Put mixture in the freezer for 15-30 minutes to get it really cold. (optional)
Remove mixture from freezer and pour the mixture into your ice cream maker.
Churn according to your machine directions. Ours takes about 30 minutes in our small gel machine.
Top with fun sprinkles. (optional)
If you want the ice cream firmer for cones, cover container and put the ice cream in the freezer for another 15-30 minutes. (optional)
If you have any leftovers, freeze it for later. Put the leftover ice cream in your blender before serving in order to make it creamy again.
Enjoy your simple homemade dairy-free maple coconut ice cream!
