  • Add coconut flakes, almonds, and chocolate chips, and fold in until they're well incorporated.

Notes

Recipe: This vegan almond joy ice cream is adopted from the Beaming Baker
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer. The ice cream will last up to 7 days in the freezer.
Thawing Instructions: The consistency will be hard when first removed from the freezer. Make sure to let it thaw for 5-10 minutes before scooping.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of coconut cream, you can use plant-based milk, like I did in the video. It works best if the milk is very cold so the mixture stays relatively solid and not liquified when blended.
  • Instead of maple syrup, you can use honey or agave syrup, or even skip the sweetener all together.
  • Feel free to adjust the mix-ins to use more or less of the coconut flakes, almonds and chocolate chips.
Equipment: I use the Kitchen Aid 7-Cup Food processor to make the ice cream. It has a high and low pulse speed so you can make the ice cream super smooth and then you can pulse in the mix-ins if you want to. You can also use a blender to make the recipe.
