dairy free mint chocolate chip ice cream recipe

Creamy and minty with just the right amount of chocolatey goodness, this dairy-free mint chocolate chip ice cream has the smooth, rich texture of the real deal. Seriously, if you’ve tried dairy-free ice cream before and the texture felt too icy and thin, I think you’ll love this easy recipe. I’m only temporarily dairy-free as part of my healing journey, so my standards are pretty high on this. 

One day I’ll get back to coffee ice cream and other cream-based favorites, but even then I’ll but even then I’ll continue mixing up batches of this deliciously decadent recipe.

It’s made with just a handful of ingredients – no polyglycerol polyricinoleate, Blue #1, Yellow #5, or high fructose corn syrup like the store-bought stuff we grew up eating. And best of all, it’s super simple to make – just prep your ingredients, blend, pour everything into your ice cream maker, and voila. I hope you love it as much as we do!

  • Place cashews in a heat resistant bowl. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil and pour it over the cashews. Allow to soak for two hours before moving to step two.
  • Next, prepare your ice cream base by draining the cashews and placing them in a blender. Add the coconut milk, maple syrup, peppermint extract, vanilla extract and optional liquid chlorophyll to the container. If you're using a high-speed blender, blend on high for about 2 minutes. If you're using a regular blender, blend for 3-4 minutes to make sure it is smooth.
  • The mixture will become warm during the blending process, so when you're finished place it in the fridge to chill for about 30-45 minutes. (I leave mine in the blender container.)
  • Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to your manufacturer's instructions. Add the chocolate chips during the last five minutes of churning. 
  • When it's ready it should have a soft serve consistency. You can devour it right away, or if you prefer a firmer consistency transfer it into an airtight container and place in the freezer for 2-4 hours. I like to use a glass loaf pan with a lid.  If the ice cream becomes too firm, let it soften at room temperature for 5-15 minutes before scooping.
