No Churn, Dairy-Free Creamy Almond Butter Ice Cream {Raw & Fruit-Sweetened}

Ready for the creamiest and simplest no-churn dairy-free ice cream ever? Because this is going to be it! This recipe is actually a total knock off of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream — re-made with those in mind who don’t do peanut butter… Well, really ever since the peanut butter ice cream happened I’ve been making ice creams with every which nut butter I had on my shelf and they’re all delicious in their own way, but this one was especially so

After making that peanut butter ice cream, I was so thrilled to have discovered that nut butter-based ice creams are such a simple concept that uses a few basic ingredients most people probably have on hand. I was also thrilled to have discovered an entirely fruit-sweetened ice cream recipe {and one without bananas or coconut involved — I love both, but I also love to find alternate recipes for fun, and also because I know some of you have requested other options ;) }. I also majorly love that this type of ice cream requires no churning {so no need to pull out that clunky loud ice cream maker…}.

… But I was most thrilled to have discovered that almond butter makes the most amazing of ice creams. This almond butter ice cream is so creamy, dreamy, and delicious. I paired it with some dried cherries, chopped almonds, and a bit of cacao nibs, but you can of course play around with whatever add-ins you like.

The most important thing about this ice cream though is that it’s largely flavored by the almond butter you use — so go for a creamy and naturally sweeter kind of almond butter here. I’m currently a little obsessed with Costco’s Kirkland creamy almond butter, so that’s what I used here. But of course your favorite brand or a homemade version will work just as well…

Author: 
Prep time: 
Cook/Chill Time: 
Ready In: 
Makes: 6-7 small servings
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups non-dairy milk {I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk}
  • 1 cup soft dates {pitted}
  • 1 cup creamy natural almond butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pure almond extract
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract {or ¼ tsp raw ground vanilla bean}
Add-Ins:
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds
  • + extra for sprinkling {optional}
  • + a bit of cacao nibs for garnish
Instructions
  1. Place all ice cream ingredients in a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth and uniform {a power blender would work best -- I used my Vitamix -- but a regular blender will work too, just keep at it patiently until the mixture is very smooth}. Throw in the add-ins and pulse a few times to mix them through.
  2. Pour ice cream into a freezer-safe container {I just used a glass bowl for this one}. Sprinkle with extra toppings if you like. Cover and place in the freezer to firm for about 5-6 hours.
  3. Allow ice cream to thaw out on the counter for a little prior to scooping {or divide into individual portions like this to begin with if you prefer}. Sprinkle with some cacao nibs if you like and enjoy!
Enjoy!
