If you love ice cream, but regular ice cream does not work well with your digestive system, choosing an almond milk ice cream recipe may be the way to go. Simply replacing the regular milk with almond milk can make all the difference in the world.
Many of these almond milk ice cream recipes are great for people who are lactose intolerant or those who don’t consume dairy, but some recipes DO contain dairy (each are marked accordingly). Also, some recipes also contain eggs, so they are not vegan, which is important if you’re making this for a friend or family member with diet restrictions.
What is Almond Milk Ice Cream Made From?
Unlike regular milk, Almond milk actually comes from Almonds. It is made by blending almonds with water and straining to remove any solids. This milk makes an awesome alternative for most things….but not ice cream. The fat in ice cream is what makes it creamy, without it you get a hard icy mess. The remedy to that is to add egg yolks to give us our creaminess.

For the recipes below that are made with bananas, the riboflavin (or Vitamin B2) in almond milk works with the carbohydrates in bananas to produce energy for our bodies, meaning this “ice cream” has some health benefits.
