Recipe Directions

Let's get started: VANILLA ICE CREAM

1. Put all vanilla ice cream ingredients in the blender and blend for 3 minutes. You want to blend it for a while to bring it to the creamy consistency that an ice cream maker would create.

2. Once properly blended, pour mixture into a deep dish, cover it and place in the freezer while you make your strawberry swirl sauce (Don’t let ice cream freeze yet. You just want to chill it).

Let's get started: STRAWBERRY SWIRL SAUCE

1. Rinse your berries.

2. Select 3-4 of the prettiest strawberries and chop them into small pieces and set aside. Take remaining berries and strawberry swirl sauce ingredients and blend until liquified. Spoon chopped strawberry pieces into blended strawberry liquid and gently stir with a spoon.

3. Viola! You now have strawberry swirl sauce. Transfer the sauce to a container or tiny pitcher (a container for creamer works well) that makes it easy to pour.

CREATING THE SWIRL ICE CREAM

1. Remove vanilla ice cream from freezer and carefully pour strawberry swirl sauce in a—you guessed it—swirly pattern into your vanilla ice cream mixture. Cover your container, place in freezer and once your creation is frozen, go to town.

2. Psst! Share with friends, they will love you for it.

Inspiredbyeverything's Thoughts

I was inspired to create this raw, non-dairy Strawberry Swirl ice cream recipe on a rare and beautiful 60° day this March. I drove to Stanley’s Fruit & Veggie Market with the windows down and tunes blazing on the stereo. Magicalness indeed. In typical ChiTown style, the next few days were cold and rainy (oh, Chicago, I still love you). So, for the next few months I will have the memories of making this Strawberry Swirl ice cream with the breeze blowing through an open balcony door with sun dancing around the kitchen...you’ll be able to taste the sunshine in this recipe, promise. Bonus: You don’t need an ice cream maker!

I'm allergic to coconut. Could you tell me why the coconut oil and meat are necessary and if there is an alternative? This is just beautiful!

i mixed this up this morning and came home to try it out after 8 hours in the freezer. the flavor was glorious but it was quite icy - not creamy like standard icecream. the only difference in my mix was that i used some almond milk that was made with regular water not coconut water. is that what did it? or do you have a suggestion to avoid the ice effect. thanks either way. it was still delicious.

I made a chocolate swirl version of this (just almond milk and cacao), and it turned out yummy!

Oh man, this is so so so GOOD! I don't have an ice cream maker, so I was so exited to make it. And the almond milk, it's probably one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent! I can't wait to hear how it turns out. One other thing I LOVE to do is make a fudge sauce out of UliMana "Truffle Butter" by adding a tablespoon of warm water to a tbsp or two of the Ulimana and topping plain vanilla ice cream with it. You can get it here: http://www.ulimana.com/more-raw-organic-chocolate-treats.html. It's incredible and a tad easier than making a strawberry sauce. I imagine you could swirl it in the un-frozen vanilla for a fudge swirl ice cream too. Endless possibilities, really.
