Dairy Free Berry “Ice Cream”

The last few days have been CrAzY! I’m already loving both of my new jobs, I have great co-workers, awesome kiddos,  a super relaxed dress code… but even with that there is no denying that it has been hot, hot, HOT. There is no doubt about it summer has officially arrived in Chicago.

Which is the perfect excuse to cool off with some ice cream, right?

Non-Dairy Berry Ice Cream

I was messing around with some leftover fruits, making a smoothie as usual, when I thought about what might happen if I put the whole mess in the freezer. Apparently if you give it a few hours and a little attention, the answer is ice cream… Can I call it ice cream if there isn’t any milk? Whatever I’m calling it ice cream 🙂

Dairy Free Berry “Ice Cream” 

Makes: 4 servings

Time: 5 minutes hands on, 2-3 hours in the freezer

Ingredients 

1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen), washed and chopped

1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen), washed

8 oz (one can) regular coconut milk

Combine strawberries, blueberries, and coconut milk in a blender. Blend on high 1-2 minutes until fully incorporated. Transfer mixture to a flat container and place in the freezer. Give it a stir every 30(ish) minutes until desired consistency is reached. *Mine was ice cream solid in 2 1/2 hours*

Quick, easy, and perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day! You could easily customize this to any fruits you have on hand or any other flavor combinations you like (I’m already thinking tropical for my next batch.)

I’m sharing this quick and easy treat with The Novice Gardener’s Fiesta Friday and Hun What’s for Dinner’s Simple Supper Tuesday.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? Does it feel like summer by you yet?

      I think I remember that sweet and salty ice cream 🙂 I always forget you’re in opposite seasons, but if your winters are anything like ours I can’t blame you for not wanting ice cream though hopefully you don’t feel the same about gelato!

    Looks fabulous! I’m a big fan of making ice cream just like this! Heavenly, isn’t it? Who needs the other junky stuff, right?

    This looks DELISH! And I can’t believe that it is dairy-free! Now, I know that Angie has turned off the AC, so we’ll all be crowding around you ice-cream to cool off! Thanks so much for bringing this cool treat to Fiesta Friday! 😀

      Thanks so much, I’ve been outvoted on turning off the AC around here. Funny enough even when it’s hot I still like the fresh air…. but I guess I’m the only one 🙂

      Berries are great, dairy or no 😉

      And I may or may not have followed the links of some blogger who knows her stuff, and once I was there I figured why not join the party!
