Strawberry and Mint Coconut Ice Cream - This Dairy Free 2 ingredient is out of this world, and you don't even need an ice cream machine to make it.

Strawberry & Mint Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Strawberry and Mint works together on so many levels. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and fresh. Mint pretty much woks with all fruit but there is something harmonious that happens when it is paired with strawberries.

Using the same method as my 2 Ingredient No Machine Ice Cream and only 2 Dairy-Free ingredients, this ice cream is a winner on lots of levels. Also note, it is not just for vegans, it’s so delicious that everyone should try it.

One of the 2 ingredients is my Coconut Condensed Milk. Now this is easy to make, it’s just milk and sugar and I have a step-by-step video showing you how. You want this guy to be really cold so have it in the fridge overnight.

The second ingredient is coconut solids. Now here’s a fancy trick for you, take 2 cans of full fat coconut milk. Pop the whole tin in the fridge over night. The next day turn the tin upside down, open his top, which was his bottom and you will see the coconut water on top and the solids underneath. We want the solids to make our ice cream and not the water. Pour away the water but make sure to save it for smoothies or curries.

Note: I bought 4 tins of the same brand of coconut milk and not all the tins separated like I mentioned above. Unfortunately, you don’t know this until you open them. This happens because the fat content varies from can to can. The coconut milk you use has to be full fat. Now I said in the video not to use coconut cream. I have had trouble in the past using coconut cream, however if you can get this to work for you then go ahead.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 2 pints
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1 recipe of coconut condensed milk
  • 2 cans (13.5 oz each) full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1-12 fresh or frozen defrosted strawberries , pureed
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  1. Chill 2 cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, preferrably overnight.
  2. Open the 2 cans of chilled coconut milk. The cream should have risen to the top. Carefully scoop the cream into a mixing bowl. (Reserve the coconut water that has separated from the cream to use in a smoothie.) With an electric beater or a stand mixer, whip up the coconut cream on high speed for 3-4 minutes until it's light, fluffy and looks just like whipped cream.
  3. Add the condensed coconut milk and whip on high speed for another 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in vanilla extract if desired. Add in the strawberry puree and mint extract then whisk together until combined and even in color.
  4. Transfer to a lidded container and freeze for 4 hours or overnight. This will last in the freezer 6-8 weeks. As this ice cream does freeze harder than my other just give it a few minutes at room temperature to make it easier to scoop.

Recipe Notes

Coconut cream will not work for this recipe
Use full fat milk. Low fat doesn’t contains enough fat to create solids.

      Hi Anu,
      yes! you can make the coconut ice cream with regular condensed milk, and I bet it will be lovely too.
      Thank you for your lovely review, I am happy your family enjoys this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

    I’m making this for my year granddaughter but was wondering how you could make fig ice cream using this meathod. Any ideas???

    • Gemma Stafford on August 12, 2019 at 8:07 pm

      Hi Karen,

      So that will be really easy to do. You will want to cook your chopped figs a little with a small amount of white sugar to soften them and create a sort of compote. This will mean the figs will not freeze rock hard. The sugar is a must.

        Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I will try this next time but as for now we are enjoying the strawberry ice cream….YUMMO! ????

        • Gemma Stafford on August 12, 2019 at 8:37 pm

          love to hear it 🙂

    Amazing! My daughter was diagnosed with a dairy allergy, and most dairy free ice cream isn’t very flavorful and she’s the only one who will eat it. This is so good my whole family can enjoy it together. Thank you so much!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2019 at 1:36 am

      Hi Megan,
      it is always difficult in the early days of making dietary adjustments. I am delighted you are finding this recipe useful, and you are right, sometimes the whole family can get with the diet. Dairy free is relatively easy now, nut milks really help, and of course margarine, in the tub for spreading, in the block for baking, is really useful too.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

      Hi there,
      I amm not sure if I can help you. I demonstrate home baking, I do not supply items. I tend to shop around for my supplies, I get lots of my utensils from, but I only buy for my own use.

    HI Gemma
    I like recipes that are brownies but i don’t have butter so can you MAKE BUTTER FREE BROWNIES AND SEND THE LINK TO ME PLEASE thanks>

    • Gemma Stafford on March 14, 2017 at 11:15 am

      Hi Sandy,
      most brownie recipes need some form of fat. if you do not have butter you can substitute margarine, even a vegan margarine will do, though I always say butter is better!
      Gemma 🙂

    I’m lactose free and gluten free so I will try this one out, and can you make some gluten free stuff.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 22, 2017 at 2:59 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, I am working on this. This is an important dietary area, and it is not my specialty, but I do try to attend to it where I can.
      The nut milks should be good for you, check this recipe out here on the website,
      Gemma 🙂

    Gemma…this was supposed to be the key lime pie ice cream recipe. You accidentally put the link for the strawberry mint.

    • Gemma Stafford on January 27, 2017 at 3:06 am

      Thank you Joann,
      I will check this out,
      Gemma 🙂
