Vegan Blackberry Basil Ice Cream


Vegan Blackberry Basil Ice Cream-

The thing about living only a short drive from your parents is that when it’s time for a visit, you can just throw your whole closet & kitchen into the car and go. Yeah, I said kitchen. Since I got a KitchenAid stand mixer long before my mom upgraded her 70’s-era JCPenny stand mixer (from their wedding), I’d go so far as to pack up my KitchenAid stand mixer along with about 10 different flours for all our holiday baking (also – how else could we make blackberry basil ice cream?).

But really – is it any different than my brother bringing home his skis and boots? My hobbies require proper equipment.

Organic Blackberries

Fortunately, my mom finally got herself a KitchenAid stand mixer complete with the ice cream maker attachment this year, so I look a little less ridiculous when I show up for the holidays (stay tuned for your chance to win your own KitchenAid stand mixer and ice cream maker at the bottom of this post).

Homemade ice cream is a tradition for every summer gathering in my family – one that involves a vintage wooden ice cream maker, crushed ice with salt, and a loud churning noise that hums as the soundtrack for the party. Many hours later, we’d end up with vanilla “ice cream” that really was more like soft serve than ice cream, and had a distinct non-ice creamy flavor all on its own. For nostalgia’s sake, I loved it, but it definitely wasn’t the creamy scoopable homemade ice cream we make now.

For the first family gathering of the summer a couple of weeks ago, my mom finally pulled out her new KitchenAid ice cream maker. She wanted to use up her apricots, so I wrote up a recipe for apricot lavender ice cream. She made that batch and was so into it that she went to town, making two more flavors totally on her own with the same ice cream base.

I brought chocolate cupcakes to the party and they were (rightfully) totally upstaged by her trio of summery ice creams. Watch out – my mom might open up an ice cream parlor from her kitchen. If you’ve got a good base, you can throw your choice of flavor profiles on top and trust it’s gonna be good.

Vegan Blackberry Basil Ice Cream-

Lately I’ve been all about this vegan coconut cream base. It’s so insanely creamy, no one will suspect it’s dairy free. When I gave Lucas a bite of this blackberry basil ice cream this is what happened:

Lucas: Yeessss! Woah, so creamy.

Me: And you can’t even taste the coconut, right?

Lucas: Wait – this is vegan?!

+10 points for this ice cream.

Vegan Blackberry Basil Ice Cream-

This variation pairs ripe blackberries with a sweet and slightly bitter herby basil hint to offset the sweet summer berries. The basil is infused into the coconut cream and strained, with a few leaves blended in with the blackberries. If you’re like me, you might find yourself eating 6 small scoops for lunch (followed by three cookies from Alanna’s upcoming cookbook). This is my summer diet.

Here are 6 more ice cream recipes to make this summer:

Vegan Blackberry Basil Ice Cream
Yields: 2 quarts
  • 2½ cups ripe blackberries (the flavor of this ice cream relies on awesome blackberries)
  • 1 (14-ounce) can coconut cream (Available at Trader Joe's or online)
  • 1 (13.66-ounce) can full fat coconut milk (Thai Kitchens brand available at most major grocery stores or online)
  • ¾ cup raw turbinado sugar
  • ⅓ cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup*
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  1. Place the blackberries in a blender and set aside while you infuse the coconut cream with basil.
  2. Warm the coconut cream, coconut milk, sugar, basil, corn syrup, and coconut oil in a medium pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When the cream begins to simmer, remove the pot from heat. Cover and let the mixture steep for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice cubes and water.
  4. Strain the mixture, pressing as much liquid out of the basil leaves as possible. Add ½ tablespoon of the strained basil to the blender with the blackberries and purée until completely smooth.
  5. Pour the cream into the blender with the blackberries and pulse until combined.
  6. Pour the puréed mixture into a large 1-gallon Ziploc bag. Seal it and submerge the mixture in the ice bath until cold, about 30 minutes.
  7. Pour the blackberry ice cream base into the bowl of your pre-frozen ice cream maker. Follow the directions on your ice cream maker to churn the base into ice cream, until it is the consistency of soft-serve, about 18 minutes.
  8. Pack the ice cream into an air-tight storage container or a metal loaf pan, pressing a sheet of parchment paper directly against the ice cream.
  9. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
*You can replace the corn syrup with 2 tablespoons more raw turbinado sugar if you want, but the result will be less creamy. The corn syrup in this recipe makes the ice cream more smooth and less icy.

  1. I’m making the vegan vanilla you made a month or so ago! Also, Lavender and Honey and Chevre. MMMMmmmmm.

    (Kitchen Aid Mixer TOTALLY = to SKIS. BETTER THAN SKIS, let’s be real.)

  2. Kristen D. says:

    Miso ice cream!

  3. Alanna says:

    Haha, I totally bring my whole house when we go visit Jay’s folks in SC. I’m always like, how do I need so much stuff?? What an epic giveaway and this ice cream is just too beauteous for words! That color. All I want is vegan blackberry basil ice cream now… but if I have to pick another it’s blueberry elderflower. :)

  4. Oh my goodness. Blueberry cheesecake, or any of them. Yum! Totally jealous you live so close to your parents. I need my Mom to move to California just to help me keep up my laundry haha! :) Sweet giveaway!

  5. Sandy Spicer says:

    I’d make a creamy Espresso Chocolate Chip!

  6. Alright so by this time already you probably know I’m not a baker. I do try though! Occasionally my patience gets the best of me and I can’t hand-mix my butter and sugar together to create a nice creamy consistency (I filmed it, it might go up, and it might be too embarrassing to publish) but either way man.. I freakin’ try! LOL.

    Bought my Mom a fancy kitchen-aid mixer for Christmas the year before I moved to the USA – so that was her huge gift before I was like “Okay no more gifts Ma, I’m unemployed… so here’s a nice one for ya”.

    Now I kinda want one for myself. To make bread. And bagels. Oh and maybe some more cookies… I love cookies. Maybe not ice cream because I’m not that talented yet. Unless I win, then I’ll try. Maybe get that on film. HAHAH. Can you come over and teach me? I’m so bad with written directions, I sometimes skip over them. Verbal is where it’s at.


    Sorry for the long comment. ;)

  7. Chelsea says:

    First – ABSOLUTELY beautiful photos! Second, vegan ice cream – does that mean it is healthy and I can eat it everyday ;) Third – AMAZING giveaway!


  8. Jennifer says:

    I would make ube ice cream!!!! Also, I made vanilla chai and chocolate peppermint ice cream with Diane (with her ice cream maker) one time ( YUM. And one more: I’m really into sorbets and am obsessed with this raspberry sorbet at work. It’s too hot in San Jose- all I want to do is eat ice cream.

  9. I’ve been playing around with vegan ice cream bases and this one looks 10x better than my best batch!!

  10. What a gorgeous ice cream flavor! I need to try the fruit + basil pairing, been seeing it everywhere lately!

  11. What a beautiful hue! I made a blueberry buttermilk ice cream recently that was a similar color. I can’t get enough of fruity ice creams lately! I love how you added basil here. For a strange flavor, maybe I would try mango cilantro? Not sure if that’s too far off the deep end…

  12. You know, I’ve never had cheesecake ice cream!? This giveaway is AMAZING! The ice cream maker attachment is a dream come true!

    ice cream with avocado lol, that would be so weird!

  20. Spike says:

    chocolate with smoked paprika
    or… honey sriracha… could be a disaster

  21. I would definitely be a patron of your mum’s backyard ice cream parlour! Even here in the middle of winter we are having some days that just call for ice cream to be had! I cannot wait to try this blackberry version – my own mother is going to go wild for it – and I love that it is vegan too. Enjoy your summer days, and that delicious summer diet ;)

  22. Rob and Lucas had very similar reactions! Hahaaa! Rob really flipped for my most recent cherry ice cream.. and is still surprised it’s vegan! This flavor is so vibrant and nourishing, it’s hard to believe it’s a treat. Awesome giveaway, too, Sarah! Thank you for this! :D

  28. ML says:

    Basil in ice cream is one of my favourite things — just yesterday I had a milkshake with some in it (some fancy flavor called “basilic instinct” which also had vodka and citrus.) So clearly I’d make just that : a simple basil flavoured ice cream to enjoy any time of day with that terrible no-good heat wave that’s coming in.

  29. Aysegul says:

    What a delicious ice cream. Basil and Blackberry duo sounds incredible.
    Perfect for the hot and humid of days of the Caribbean summer.. Cheers!

  30. Soooo many, but I’d start by making Matcha w/ Blueberry Swirl. Thanks for the chance!
    This ice cream sounds absolutely fantastic, btw, and I love that it’s vegan.

  31. grace says:

    it’s not particularly unique but it’s my favorite and i can’t find it anywhere: cinnamon!

  32. Stunning! I just love the idea of basil in sorbet. I’ve been thinking about doing it in a granita and this just affirms everything! And thanks for the shoutout :)

  33. The color of that ice cream is amazing! Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway!!

  34. cheri says:

    Sounds yummy, I might try making some fig ice cream, but not sure what to pair with it.

  35. Alison H. says:

    I would make a cheesecake ice cream!

  36. Kathy says:

    Blackberry Lavender Chevre. :-)

  37. Linda says:

    One of my favorite things locally is a lavender ice cream in a lemon cookie sandwich. I think I’d try a lavender ice cream and do a swirl of homemade lemon curd in it for a lavender-lemon swirl ice cream!

  38. Great combo – blackberry & basil! I too have ice cream on the brain and recently got turned onto the coconut base vegan-style ice creams and I’m hooked. :) lovely pics..makes me want to jump right into a big bowl of it!

  39. Ain't Lisa says:

    Yum! Yum! Yum! If I come for a visit will you promise to serve me this delicious concoction? I was in ice cream heaven when you and your momma joined together to serve the delicious ice cream trio during your last visit! I dream of tasting banana-blueberry ice cream…Please-o-please will you make me some?

  40. strawberry coconut chocolate chip sounds amazing! but so does this blackberry basil – SO yummy and such a pretty color

  41. MaryB says:

    This looks fabulous! Photos make me any it right now! I love almond and chocolate – not too inventive but I would have to try it with coconut.

  42. Agnes Ma says:

    On step 6. Put the Pour the puréed mixture into a large 1-gallon Ziploc bag. Seal it and submerge the mixture in the ice bath until cold, about 30 minutes.

    On step 7. Pour the blackberry ice cream base into the bowl of your pre-frozen ice cream maker. Follow the directions on your ice cream maker to churn the base into ice cream, until it is the consistency of soft-serve, about 18 minutes.

    On step 6, can I put the pureed mixture into the freezer for certain minutes instead? If it is possible, how many minutes will that be?

    On step 7, you let the mixture to churn until soft-serve, about 18 minutes. Why do you churn just till soft -serve? why don’t you churn longer till done?

    Pls advise. tks a million.

    On step 7,

    • Hi Anges, Thanks for your questions! I’ve never made a no-churn ice cream, but the reason you churn the ice cream is to get air bubbles into the mixture so it doesn’t freeze up rock solid with large frozen crystals. If you search “no-churn ice cream” you should find some helpful recommendations for churning it yourself without an ice cream maker!

      For step 7, the churning process is finished when it reaches soft-serve – this process imparts air bubbles into the ice cream while it freezes and making it so the large ice crystals don’t form. Then you “ripen” the ice cream in the freezer to freeze until more solid. If you kept churning in your ice cream maker, it wouldn’t actually get any more firm in the ice cream maker.

      Thanks again! Good luck making ice cream!

  43. Janet Roberson says:

    Strawberry Basil….yum

  44. teri says:

    Coconut with Black Sesame sounds yummy and unique to try… :)

    I’m wanting to try this coconut ice “cream” base. I can see so many different ways to use it.

  49. Alexis Bass says:

    I would make chocolate chip cookie dough, mint-chocolate chip ice cream. Too much? Chocolate chips would be the main ingredient for whatever I did decide to make. ;)

  50. Alexandra robertson says:

    I have always wanted to make blue cheese and pear ice cream!!

  56. Lavender and Vanilla – or a Lemongrass and Vanilla. Anything fun with vanilla!

  57. I’m all goo goo gaga over here with this beautiful ice cream maker and ahhhh totally forgot kitchenaid stand mixer can do that! I’m (in my mind) sitting all scrunched up in a corner wringing my hands just HOPING I can win this, hah! And it’s such a great feeling when your loved ones rave over your food, isn’t it?

    ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION: I’d make….argentinean churro+dulce de leche filling flavored ice cream! Orrr….thai tea! Oh man, now you’ve got my brain working overtime. ;) Btw, have you tried argentinean churros? They’re so completely different from the Mexican kind but so good–kind of hard to describe actually! Filled with dulce de leche, thicker and crunchier on the outside, and much shorter in length.

  58. When I think of summer, one of the things I think of is ice cream so this is a perfect recipe!! I love this combination of flavors too and your pictures are amazing. I’m going to have to give this recipe a try!!

  69. Donna says:

    Something with strawberries and kale! I love the combo!

I mean, we both know that kitchen aid has my name written all over it, right?? ;-) I’m going to be baking with niece some time soon, and I feel like I’ll be doing the same thing—driving a million ingredients, bowls, measuring spoons, and the lot to my sister’s. Based on my tasting of your last ice cream, I’m sure this one is positively DELISH!

    chocolate caramel almond

  127. Mary Bosker says:

  135. Jacob says:

    Making ice cream would be a blast this summer, and we’ve had more strawberries than we’ve known what to do with in our house. So I’d probably switch it up a little and try a strawberry basil ice cream. Strawberry jalapeno would also be something I’d love to try!

  136. Angela Berryman says:

    I’d try toasted marshmallow!

  137. SmilynStef says:

    No dairy for me, so I’d try to make some with coconut milk.

  162. Alyssa Miles says:

    My family is a family divided in their taste preferences. I think this recipe would be delicious to try, but for the rest of my family it would be lots of experimenting as many flavored as possibly. We would most likely do something with peaches first! That’s my husbands all time favorite and the kids would want something fun like cotton candy or just chocolate.

  163. Stephanie Simmons says:

    Is it weird to say that ice cream is absolutely beautiful? I can’t wait to make it!

  164. Tlogan says:

    This looks exceptional! I would like to make a coffee/cookies n cream ice cream with a swirl of caramel…

  166. Elizabeth says:

    I’ve dreamed of owning the ice cream maker! Having made ice cream in baking and pastry school I have wanted one even more. Always wanted to try making a Tiramisu ice cream, Ooooh excited just thinking about it.

    Such an awesome post! Welk, being a Florida native I’d first try a keylime pie ice cream flavor!

  175. Christina says:

  177. Ruby says:

  181. Brenda Combs says:

  183. Nicole says:

    Some sort of berry and chocolate mix maybe! Anything mixed with chocolate sounds like s good idea, right :-)

  184. April says:

    Horcata & churro ice cream! I have never made ice cream before, however when I was in California about a year ago I had horcata (a cinnamon rice drink) and churro ice cream and I haven’t stopped thinking about it!

  185. Gina Batcha says:

    I would like to make a strawberry/lemonade icecream with walnuts!!

  186. Angela S says:

    I love ice cream. I try every flavor then settle on my favorite vanilla. I’ve made homemade ice cream at home since I was tiny. First with my grandparents in a hand cranked, fill with ice and salt churn, then to an electric churn, to one that is placed in the freezer like the kitchen aid until as a big Christmas gift a self contained, has its own freezer system all you have to do is fill, put the dasher in and press a button ice cream maker. The Kitchen Aid system is lovely and one I’d love to try.

  187. Abbie says:

    This is the most ingenious new base recipe. Can’t wait to try…also love @kitchenaidusa ice cream maker design! You guys are both knocking it out of the park on this one @snixykitchen

  188. Jin says:

    Probably something coffee flavored with Heath/toffee bits… although, that black raspberry recipe sounds really yummy too

  189. Caitlin says:

    I basically like anything mango, and I happen to have some mango puree in my fridge, so I’d likely do something with that. And probably berries if I could find some. Strawberry Mango would probably be the easiest.

    If I had the raspberries, though, I think I’d want to try a Raspberry Tarragon flavor combo. I think of it every time I use Tarragon, usually in savory dishes.

  190. Olga says:

    Blackberry Levander yammmiieee!! Refreshing and tasteful!

  191. Kyra says:

    Cherry chocolate chip! Or maybe blueberry huber lemon cheesecake! Ice cream- yummmmmm

  192. Jennifer Chadwick says:


  193. This ice cream is absolutely gorgeous, Sarah! And I’m jonesing for that KitchenAid ice cream attachment miracle. How cool is that?! Can’t wait to make. The color alone is enough to induce full summer swooning.

  194. Angel says:

    Pumpkin seed

  195. Emilie says:

    Maybe first vanilla classic.

  200. Mahalo says:

    We used to make our own ice cream when we were kids and rum-raisin was my favorite. :) Ours was a device similar to the kitchenaid tub, but we had to take turns rotating a handle haha.

    A brownie coconut sounds right up my alley!

  248. Alana says:

    STOP IT WITH THIS AWESOMENESS!! Look at you killing the ice cream game. Blackberry basil sounds dreamy enough but then you go and make it vegan but without making it taste vegan? HERO. I wanna make this. Or maybe have you make it for me? :D

  249. Sophie says:

    I’m super into lemon balm, scented geraniums, and elderflowers right now…so I’d want to mix up some herb & flower concoctions! Yum.

  250. This ice-cream looks and sounds delicious Sarah. I’d love to pick up one of the spoons in your photos and take a big spoonful! I love the comparison you make between your KitchenAid and your brother’s skis and boots… totally get it! I have been dreaming of a KitchenAid mixer for a very long time now and hopefully one day I’ll be able to pack my own up for trips away too! Sadly, being from Australia, I don’t think I’m eligible for your giveaway though :(
