Super creamy vanilla coconut ice cream is swirled with rich brownie batter for an extra special frozen treat!
If you love summer, you probably love ice cream. There’s nothing like a cold scoop of ice cream to cool off in the hot weather.
When I made this dairy free brownie batter ice cream, I was so surprised at how good it was! It reminds me of the type of flavors made by Ben and Jerry. It’s SO good. I used coconut milk, so it’s extra creamy, and I made a simple, four ingredient brownie batter that I swirled into the ice cream.
Look at that ice cream…don’t you want to just dig in?
The brownie batter is really delicious – no eggs of course, and you can safely eat it raw if you toast the flour in the oven first. It’s similar to my recipe for brownie batter bites.
Type of Flour
I used white spelt flour to make this batter, but I’ve used oat flour before as well. Feel free to use any flour that works with your diet – all-purpose flour, gluten free flour, or coconut flour would all be fine.
Non-Dairy Milk for Ice Cream
Full fat ice cream is very necessary for making creamy dairy free ice cream. I love Thai Kitchen or Native Forest Coconut Milk for making ice cream – the taste and consistency is just right. If you can’t find those brands, I would recommend any brand of coconut cream.
I don’t recommend using a different non-dairy milk. Rice milk, flax milk, or soy milk will result in an icy consistency, and the ice cream may not firm up at all.

For the ice cream:
Place the ingredients for the brownie batter into a bowl and stir well. If the flour you use makes the batter too dry, add a little more melted buttery spread. Place the batter into the refrigerator to chill.
Put the full fat coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt in your ice cream maker.
Process according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once the ice cream is done processing, stop the machine and stir in the brownie batter.
Serve immediately, or store in the freezer. If you store in the freezer, you will need to allow time for the ice cream to thaw slightly before eating.
*You can use any flour that works with your diet – all-purpose flour, gluten free flour, or coconut flour would all be fine.
Store leftover ice cream in the freezer. It will get very hard when frozen, so you will need to allow it to thaw a bit before scooping.
