What does it mean no churn?

When you see an ice-cream recipe including the term ‘no churn’, it means that you don’t need to use an ice cream maker to produce smooth, creamy and delicious ice cream.

All my frozen dessert and healthy ice cream recipes you’ll find in my archives are all 100% no churn. I either use a food processor or my favorite method, the high-speed blender

How do you make ice-cream in a blender?


To make ice-cream in a blender, you’ll need to ensure it has ice crushing capabilities. For my recipes, I add the chilled coconut milk, add the other ingredients and blend until thick and creamy. 

Depending on the texture, I’d either freeze it and stir in 15-minute intervals, or I’d add extra ingredients to enjoy it soft-serve style. 

How do you make dairy free ice cream?

To keep my ice cream recipes 100% dairy free and paleo-friendly, I always use coconut milk from a can. I chill the cans of coconut milk overnight (the KEY to the perfect consistency) and let the cream separate from the milk. 

Unless otherwise stated, I use the entire can of coconut milk.

Can you substitute coconut milk? 

I don’t recommend substituting coconut milk if you want a scoopable ice-cream. The consistency and thickness are necessary to produce that desired texture. If you plan to have your ice-cream immediately or enjoy a thickshake-like dessert, you can use almond or another milk. Be wary that you’d need to cut back on the liquid amount. 

Is there any paleo ice-cream?

Technically, there are some dairy-free ice creams on the market which can be considered paleo friendly. However, there are some ingredients which strict followers of the paleo diet would not be comfortable consuming.

I have you covered though- Every single ice cream recipe on this blog is 100% paleo and keto friendly! 

Is vegan ice cream better for you? 

I don’t believe any ice-cream is better for you based on dietary preferences. Yes, there may be no dairy in vegan ice-cream, but you’d be surprised at what other ingredients are used.

Fortunately for YOU, not only do I share easy vegan no-churn ice cream recipes here, they are guilt-free and made with wholesome, clean ingredients.

  1. Hi Arman, love this recipe! What happens if you use light coconut milk instead of full fat coconut milk? Canned light coconut milk is all I have, but all recipes for coconut milk ice cream I have seen call for coconut milk!

    1. Light coconut milk will freeze to a rock. You need the fat in regular full fat coconut milk to achieve the best results with this recipe. He mentioned you could use other types of milk if you’re going to use this for a smoothie or eat it right away.

  2. For the 2 13.66 oz cans canned coconut milk, chilled – do you scoop out ONLY the solids or do you use EVERYTHING?

    1. It is key for this recipe 🙂 You can try my 3 Ingredient chocolate ice cream which doesn’t use protein powder 🙂

      1. Thank you Arman! I will try it for sure! I’m pregnant and avoiding refined sugar. Your recipes are life savers! So glad I found your page! ?

  3. The nutritional facts are based on one serving. How much is a serving? Thanks for the recipe. The coconut milk is already in the freezer!!

  4. I understand putting the coconut milk in the fridge overnight but would like to know if I am to just scoop the solids from the can or put the entire contents in. TIA
