Recipe: Dairy-Free Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream

This frozen concoction is delicious — and dairy-free
ice cream, dairy-free, dairy-free ice cream, raspberry, coconut, bee pollen

Ice cream made with frozen fruit and coconut cream is every bit as rich and delicious as dairy-based ice cream. The raspberries in this recipe are a fantastic source of vitamin C and fiber. You don’t need an ice cream machine, but for best results, use a high-speed blender that comes with a tamper so the berries puree thoroughly and the mixture is quick to turn smooth and creamy.

2 (10-ounce) packages frozen raspberries
½ cup coconut cream
1 teaspoon alcohol-free, gluten-free pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
2 tablespoons dark maple syrup (optional, for Pegan Diet)
2 tablespoons bee pollen
2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
10 chopped honey-roasted pistachios (optional)


  1. Combine raspberries, coconut cream, vanilla, cardamom and maple syrup, if using, in a blender.
  2. Blend on high speed, using the tamper (if available) to push the berries down toward the blade, until mixture is smooth, thick and creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Using a spatula, scoop the ice cream into four bowls.
  4. Sprinkle each portion with 1½ teaspoons each of the bee pollen, coconut, and cacao nibs, optional pistachios (if using) and serve. (This ice cream doesn’t keep well, so serve all of it immediately.)
