Grab some dragon fruit and make this stunning Dragon Fruit Ice Cream…it’s healthy, vegan, and creamy!
I’m on such a dragon fruit kick these days. It’s beautiful, sweet, and a nice change from all the normal fruits that are on shelves all year long. I was trying to buy some white fleshed dragon fruit, but my store only had this red variety. Once I cut it open, I knew it would be beautiful turned into ice cream.
I think the color is out of this world. It’s absolutely stunning!
The use of almond milk and canned coconut milk keep this ice cream creamy and vegan. It also gives it a hint of a tropical dessert, which I love. It really couldn’t be any easier to throw this ice cream together…just a quick run through the blender and then straight into an ice cream maker.
Dragon Fruit Ice Cream
- 2 dragon fruits, halved and fruit removed
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 (13.5 oz) can unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Prepare ice cream maker according to user manual.
- Place the fruit of the dragon fruits into a blender with other ingredients and puree until smooth. Pour into a prepared ice cream maker and run until mixture is frozen. Pour into a freezer-safe container and freezer for several hours or until firm.
- Remove from freezer for 10 minutes to soften before serving.
- *Note: I used red fleshed dragon fruit, but the white fleshed fruit will work too (it just won't be pink).
