Black Raspberry Ice Cream {dairy-free}

Black Raspberry Ice Cream via @alyssarimmer -- #glutenfree #dairyfree

One of my favorite things about growing up in Vermont is being surrounded by wild berries. When I was a little girl, every summer around this time, you would find me deep in the pricker bushes in our backyard. I would emerge, sometimes hours later, with red scratches all over my body, a container of fresh berries in my hand, a triumphant smile on my face. And we'd enjoy them all day long.

Red raspberries would come first, followed quickly by the black raspberries and then in mid- to late-August, the big juicy blackberries would start to pop. If you haven't tried black raspberries, I wish I could send you some. They're a little more tart than red raspberries, but have that dark, bold flavor that blackberries do. They're a genius blend of berry goodness.

I was visiting my parents in Vermont a few weeks ago and the black raspberries were bursting off the bushes. I picked as many as humanly possible, scouring the hills behind their house until each bush was picked clean.

We ate some in our pancakes the next day, but I knew what I wanted to use the rest for: black raspberry ice cream. I've used them in recipes before, like this Peach & Black Raspberry Tart or this Black Raspberry Cheesecake, but never in an ice cream.

And until now, I had yet to perfect my dairy-free ice cream recipe. And now I've made it numerous times, so I hope you're ready for some ice cream recipes. I've got loads of them coming your way!

  1. This looks awesome, thanks! I’m going to attempt more dairy-free ice cream recipes soon because I’m noticing that milk upsets my stomach (something I’ve never paid attention to much until now). I love raspberries, so I’m sure I will be trying this soon!

    • Yes, I think you probably could, but I don’t think the texture would be quite the same. When you make ice cream with no ice cream maker, you would blend it, chill it, then transfer it to a freezer safe container and as it’s freezing, you’ll have to give it a stir every hour or so to break up the ice crystals that will form. Let me know if you try it and how it works out for you 🙂 If you don’t have black raspberries, it would be delicious with any other berry!

  2. Hi
    I live in Australia so I’m not sure how large the can of coconut milk is that you are using for this recipe & also, I don’t have an ice cream maker – is there another way of making this?

    This is a wonderful site – you have done wonders for the like of us who can’t and don’t want to eat the rubbish that is so common place these days

    Thanks very much

  3. I love black raspberries! And, I love how you explain them as a combination of red raspberries and blackberries and suggest that combo as a yummy alternative for those of us who don’t have a patch of wonderful, prickery black raspberry bushes! Looks sooooo good!
