  • Sea Salt – Natural sweetness enhancer
  • Butter, Ghee, Or Non-Dairy Butter – Adds richness, creaminess, and caramel-like undertones

No-churn method

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, or just don’t want to mess with one, it’s really easy to make this into a no-churn recipe!

And the best part? There’s no mixing it every 30 minutes and it’s still creamy and scoopable. How awesome is that!?!

After you simmer the mixture (our homemade sweetened condensed milk), you simply beat the remaining whipping cream or coconut cream until it’s light and fluffy!

Then, you slowly fold in the cooled, sweetened milk mixture along with the rest of the ingredients. Easy-peasy!

Easy Steps Using An Ice Cream Maker

Add 2 cups of whipped cream or 1 13.5 oz. can of the full-fat canned coconut milk, allulose, and butter (or non-dairy butter) to a medium-sized saucepan.

Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, or until reduced by about half and slightly thickened. This is our homemade, sweetened condensed milk.

Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Whisk in the pure vanilla, sea salt, and remaining whipped cream or coconut milk.

If the coconut milk is clumpy, simply run it through a blender or food processor on low until well combined.

Place plastic wrap directly onto the mixture and cool to room temperature.

Transfer to the fridge and chill for 4 hours to overnight.

This allows time for the flavors to meld together and for the mixture to get cold. If the mixture isn’t extremely cold, it will not thicken properly.

If using guar gum, very slowly sprinkle it into the mixture while whisking constantly. Do not dump it in or it will clump!

Churn according to the manufacturer’s directions. Do not over-churn, otherwise, it may turn into whipped cream!

Eat immediately or cover and freeze for 4 to 8 hours for pretty scoops 馃崹

Top tips

  • If you have to freeze your bowl, make sure it is frozen – really frozen. It needs a full 24 hours in the freezer for best results (or follow the instructions for your specific machine).
  • After churning, transfer it quickly from the bowl to the freezer as fast as possible. Freezing fast will help prevent large ice crystals.
  • I don’t recommend re-freezing the ice cream after it has thawed, otherwise, it will be icy.
  • Even though the gelatin and guar gum is optional, I recommend using one of them in the dairy-free, and especially the no-churn versions. It helps prevent it from being icy.
  • Choosing between guar gum and gelatin: Both work really well, but I tend to prefer guar gum. However, guar gum is a more obscure ingredient and gelatin is very good for gut health, which is why I added the gelatin option.
  • There is no gelatin option for the ice cream machine version. This is because the gelatin has to be added just before churning. However, the mixture has to be extremely cold to churn so it’s not a good idea to add boiling gelatin water, lol 馃ぃ
