Lime Coconut Ice Cream is going on heavy repeat here this summer! This is all the good things wrapped up together in each bite. You're going to want a lot of it.

I originally shared this recipe with you back in 2012. (Give it up for the Throw Back Thursdays and the 33rd #tbt post on the blog.) Since that time, I've tweaked the recipe a bit so now it firmly stands in place as my favorite fruit-based ice cream recipe.

Here's why you'll want all the Lime Coconut Ice Cream:

  • Super creamy, luscious ice cream that makes you want to eat more and more and more.
  • It's healthy, so you can eat more and more and more.
  • Tangy lime tastes extra refreshing on a hot summer's day.
  • It's ridiculously easy to make.
  • You can use your ice cream maker OR opt for the no churn ice cream method. Your choice!
  • It's dairy-free ice cream so you can feel good even after eating the entire batch to yourself. ??

This lime coconut ice cream doesn't taste anything like what I thought it would. I was going for a coconut sorbet with a hint of lime. What I got was the opposite, a lime sorbet with a hint of coconut. Not that I'm complaining, it's delicious.

The bright flavor of the lime is kept perfectly in check by the creamy coconut. It's a flavor match made in heaven.

This is all about summertime ice cream magic.

Bring on the vegan ice cream!

We've got a bit of a thing around here for dairy-free ice cream. This lime coconut ice cream is the 9th vegan ice cream recipe on the blog. And with summer beginning, I guarantee it won't be the last.

Even though I cook with more butter than I care to admit and sprinkle cheese on my pasta, when it comes to ice cream, dairy-free is the only way to go. Regular ice cream leaves me feeling pretty terrible. #truth!

Are you the same way?

I love that I can eat a big bowl of vegan ice cream and feel great afterward.

Description

Lime Coconut Ice Cream is the ultimate healthy summer treat. It's a super creamy, 3-ingredient, vegan ice cream that has just the right tartness from the lime. It's so easy to make and delicious that you'll want to make it all summer long!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce can coconut cream (see notes)
  • 2 limes, juice and zest
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar, honey, or granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Whisk all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Pour the lime coconut cream into your ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's directions. Transfer the sorbet to a freezer-proof container and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.

Notes

Use the highest fat coconut milk you can find. I like to use coconut cream, but a can of regular coconut milk will work, too. Try to use coconut cream or milk with no added ingredients for the best results.
