Vegan Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Posted Nov 15 2010 9:55am

Nothing says holidays like a bag of candy canes and a hammer, does it?  Sure, peppermint pieces can be found, but I can’t think of any reason to go looking for them when I have a perfectly good excuse to use a hammer to break things!  When I was younger, we stalked the ice cream isle, impatiently awaiting the peppermint stick “special edition” ice cream to hit the shelves.  I’ve never been a huge peppermint lover, but when it comes to peppermint ice cream… well, that’s like frozen Christmas in a tub right there.  After waiting, once again impatiently, for one of my favorite vegan ice cream companies to release a peppermint stick holiday flavor, I say it’s time to stop waiting and start making!

Vegan Ice Cream Recipes

  • 1 14 ounce can regular coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cups nondairy milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)
  • 1 cup crushed candy canes or small peppermint stick pieces

In a large bowl, combine coconut milk, nondairy milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract (for a more peppermint-y ice cream, rather than vanilla with peppermint sticks).  Refrigerate batter for at least 2 hours.  Once batter is chilled, make according to your ice cream maker ‘s instructions.  Add in peppermint pieces 5 minutes before your machine’s freezing cycle is finished and process.  Enjoy!
