Balsamic Strawberry & Basil Dairy-Free Ice Cream Recipe {Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, AIP, Refined Sugar-Free}

{Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free}

Roasted balsamic strawberries and I have a very special relationship. We’re sort of inseparable in the summer. And basil? He’s a great friend too… ;) I’ve previously shared a recipe for a balsamic strawberry vegan yogurt on the blog, but this dairy-free ice cream is another favorite around here.

Homemade ice cream is one of the best desserts ever — sooo much better than most of the thousand ingredient-laden commercial dairy-free ice creams and it’s actually one of the easiest desserts to adapt for a dairy-free diet, and this no-fuss version is hard to mess up. As for the flavor, strawberries and basil may seem strange to some, but it’s actually a really incredible flavor combination. Make that balsamic strawberries, and it only gets better ;).
