Boy, have I got a scoop for you guys this week! (Get it?)
We’ve already shown you how to make the epic Vegan Oreo Cheesecake, but now, I have two words for you.
Plant-based. Ice Cream. I’m so happy I might cry.
Here’s the thing, we all love vegan vanilla ice cream, but we don’t always have a ton of time to spend making it and a lot of us don’t own ice cream makers.
I get it, and I’ve got you covered.
This blog post will show you how to make plant-based vanilla ice cream whether you have an ice cream maker, no ice cream maker, a whole day to spare or just 15 minutes.
Feel free to use the table of contents to skip to whichever recipe you need right now!
To be honest, guys, I was a little disappointed when I was researching plant-based ice cream recipes for this blog post.
Most of the recipes out there were either measured in cups (ain’t nobody got time for that), needed an ice cream maker or just took forever to make.
That’s why I’ve put together three vegan vanilla ice cream recipes that are machine-less, quick and UK friendly.
Each of these recipes has no more than seven vegan vanilla ice cream ingredients, and all of the ingredients are really easy to get at your local supermarket.
You’re sure to melt in the face of these luscious plant-based vanilla ice cream recipes.
(You should also prepare yourself for an excess of ice cream based puns, I can’t help myself)
So without further ado, here’s how to make vegan vanilla ice cream!
Vegan vanilla ice cream recipe #1 by Anna Glover.
It’s for people who have a little bit of time on their hands and an ice cream maker.
With vegan ice cream, you get what you put in. That’s why this three hour vegan ice cream recipe yields the tastiest results.
It takes around three and a half hours to make in total, but don’t be put off! Only about 25 minutes of this time is spent actually doing stuff. The rest of the time is freezing etc. (you don’t need to stand around for that part lol)
Full disclosure, guys, this recipe is the same as the one above, but I’m going to show you how to do it without an ice cream machine.
I’m going to repeat the ingredients list and adjusted method, so that you don’t need to keep scrolling up and down. That’s just too confusing.
Generally, a plant based diet includes more fruits and vegetables, lean protein and nutrients. On top of that, it often means reducing or cutting out your consumption of unhealthy saturated fats, carbohydrates and added sugars.
Because of this, a plant based diet benefits your mind, body and spirit!

This recipe is for those who don’t have a bunch of time to spend making ice cream
It’s also great if you have a midnight craving for vegan vanilla ice cream and you just can’t wait for it.
However, remember what I said you get what you put in when it comes to vegan vanilla ice cream?
Well, this recipe inspired by Forks Over Knives is easy and quick, but it does mean that your ice cream is going to taste of vanilla and banana.
Let me explain.
This ice cream is based on frozen bananas, so there is no way of getting around the banana taste. But, with added fresh vanilla pods, it will taste of silky fresh vanilla too!
Technically, you can leave this one in the freezer for up to a week and eat it whenever, but I’ve tried it myself and found that it goes really hard and it’s just not as nice. If you ask me, it’s best to eat this one right away!
Vegan vanilla ice cream is great, but it can be – well, vanilla.
But don’t hate! Vanilla is versatile AF! Here are some great vegan dessert ideas to spice your vanilla ice cream recipes up:
With these three plant-based vanilla ice cream recipes, you’ll never need to look for another homemade vegan ice cream recipe again.
I’ve made the last recipe so many times that I have memorised how to make it! (I’m not sure whether to be proud of this or not…)
Whether you’re equipped with an ice cream machine or not, everyone can enjoy vegan vanilla ice cream!
But, sometimes just 15 minutes is just too long to spend cooking.
We all have days where we just want a steaming hot bowl of vegan goodness in front of us, but we don’t have the time or energy to whip up a whole meal.
So we opt for toast. Boring.
