This roasted strawberry mint ice cream is made with coconut milk for a dairy free and vegan frozen treat that’s still super creamy and delicious.

I resisted the whole premise of an ice cream maker for a long time. One attempt into having one though (thanks to my mother in law) and I want to punch myself in the face for the years I missed out on this homemade amazingness because of my stubborn “I don’t need another kitchen appliance” stance.

I needed it, I just didn’t know it.

And I got the one that’s an attachment to my KitchenAid stand mixer so it’s barely another appliance. More like an add-on. Totally justifiable.

Roasted strawberry mint ice cream

Deciding on what flavor to make the first go around was somewhat like what I imagine it would be like to pick out a name for your kid. Oh, the choices! Like names, there are about 10 million ice cream variations out there.

Milk & cream or dairy free? Egg base, no eggs? Chocolate mix ins or the fruit route? Nuts, no nuts? The choices go on and on and on and on…

After some facebook input, I decided to go the coconut milk base route this time around and while almond joy, lemon, york peppermint patty and oreo were thrown out as suggestions (and will eventually be made because they all sound amazing) the abundance of strawberries I had on hand won out.

Roasting them and mixing with a little bit of fresh mint resulted in what I’d call the perfect spring flavor.

Only made better by the 70+ sunny weather, a good book read front to back, the open top jeep rides and the complete avoidance of the computer this past weekend.

  1. This looks beyond amazing. I just stocked up on coconut milk for ice cream season! Love that you roasted the strawbwrries…I can’t even imagine how refreshing this tastes!

  2. That’s the same ice cream maker that I have, the attachment to the KitchenAid Stand Mixer! It’s worked well for me. The way it attaches to the paddle took me a little getting used to but I have it down now. I like the way you roasted the strawberries, I’m sure that intensifies the flavor, and added them at the end. I love having little chunks of strawberry in my strawberry ice cream. I have a strawberry frozen kefir recipe that I make often.

  3. Glad you jumped on the bandwagon. I have been dreaming about strawberry ice cream made with coconut milk. I will be making this soon. Looks yummy!

  4. I’ve never heard of roasted strawberries before but they sure do seem to get a good wrap from everyone. This looks great and I’m super excited that it’s dairy free.

  5. I’ve never heard of roasted strawberries before! But this certainly sounds like a recipe I need to try!

  6. I know what you mean about hating to buy another appliance. Its why I don’t own one! I use my vitamix to make single serving frozen treats!

  7. I knew I should have bought that attachment for our mixer. We had the pasta one and I returned it and used the $250 to buy something else I probably don’t use in my kitchen. I really want this attachment though. My sister has one and she uses it like twice a year, but it’s still justifiable. Great idea on roasting those strawberries beforehand! One of my favorite restaurants in town makes a strawberry mint lemonade and if I think those flavors are the bees knees, having that in frozen form will probably make me wish this weather was here year-round. Oh wait I already wish that.
    Glad you’re finally get some sunshine! I have been loving it!
