I used to think vanilla ice cream was lame and boring. Enter vanilla bean powder. It takes ice cream to a whole new level and I like to add it to ALL THE THINGS!. This dairy free vanilla bean ice cream is a blank canvas for your creativity! Add the toppings of your choice to make it a fancy treat or enjoy it as is—either way, you won’t be disappointed.
When we went to LA this summer to visit Disneyland, we visited this AMAZING ice cream spot called Kippy’s . If you’re looking for top notch quality dairy free ice cream—look no further. We were obsessed and went here multiple times throughout our week in Los Angeles. My husband always chose the date sweetened ice cream and LOVED it. I was inspired and decided to re-create this delicious treat at home. He’s definitely a fan and asks for it frequently.
I love that this ice cream only uses three ingredients and is naturally sweetened with dates! I enjoy it best straight out of the ice cream maker because frankly, who can resist freshly churned ice cream? However, if you freeze it, make sure to allow plenty of time to defrost as this will freeze harder than a typical store bought ice cream with unwanted additives.
Now let’s get onto the ice cream!
First, gather your ingredients. 3 ingredients. Boom. Done.
Combine those ingredients in a high powered blender and let chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
After it has sufficiently chilled, process in your ice cream maker per manufacturer’s instruction.
And dig in!!!
