Vegan Blackberry Ice Cream

Blackberries are everywhere right now . . . so why not make a batch of ice cream. This is one of my favorite flavors -- it's creamy, sweet and just a bit of tartness. It takes a little time to strain out the blackberry seeds but take the time because it makes a much nicer ice cream experience.

Blackberry Ice Cream

Makes 1 generous quart

Some blackberries are sweeter than others. If the berries are very tart, use the larger amount of sweetener.


3 cups blackberries

1 (14-ounce can) full-fat coconut milk

2/3 to 3/4 cup granulated sugar or agave syrup


Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, starting with the smaller amount of sugar, and process until smooth. Taste and add additional sugar, if necessary. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a medium bowl and press the mixture through it to remove the seeds. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Then freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.
