This easy No-Churn Strawberry Vegan Ice Cream is rich and creamy. Just blend all ingredients in the blender, pour into a loaf pan and let the magic happen. In a few hours, you have a creamy luscious ice cream that resembles a classic store bought version.
If you haven’t noticed, this is the first ice cream recipe on Nurture My Gut. Yup, it’s true! I have been working on vegan ice cream recipes for the last few years and unfortunately, all I get is something I am not proud to share.
The flavors are amazing but the texture is icy. Tis the reason, no yummy ice cream recipes, until now! I have finally discovered the secret to creamy ice cream!

Okay, it’s not really a secret! Just check out the ingredients in store bought vegan ice creams and you will find xanthan gum in the list. I was actually avoiding adding xanthan gum to my ice cream because I wanted to keep the ingredients clean and minimal, but with so many failures, I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad that I did! The texture is just like an ice cream full of dairy. Seriously, this is so creamy! I am looking forward to making more No-Churn Vegan Ice Cream Recipes for you.
Adding xanthan gum (corn free version)is truly the secret to an extra creamy No-Churn Vegan Ice Cream. You do not even need an ice cream maker, just blend your ingredients, pour into a container and freeze for 5-6 hours. Let your ice cream thaw for a few minutes and then its ready to scoop into bowls or onto my gluten free waffle cones.
