Though a terrific dairy-free alternative, almond milk is known to be quite thin and watery.
With that in mind, you might think that these almond milk ice cream recipes will be lackluster.
Trust me when I say they’re not! In fact, they’re incredibly rich and creamy, and the trick is to find the right ingredients to help make them more luscious.
That’s why you’ll see plenty of chocolate and banana recipes along with nut butter and frozen fruits.
Just keep in mind that dairy-free doesn’t mean vegan. Some recipes are vegan-friendly, but others use eggs for richness.
1. Almond Milk Ice Cream
This three-ingredient almond milk ice cream is both dairy-free and 100% vegan. But don’t think that means it’s bland!

Use this as a base and add anything from dark chocolate chips to chopped nuts or fruit.
2. No-Churn, Dairy-Free Creamy Almond Butter Ice Cream
No ice cream maker? No problem! This mouth-watering no-churn almond butter ice cream just needs a decent blender and 5 minutes of your time.

Fold through some roasted almond for crunch, or serve with extra almond butter.
3. Healthy Chocolate Banana Ice Cream
In case you didn’t know, if you blend frozen bananas (in a decent, good-quality blender), it looks and tastes just like ice cream!
