This homemade strawberry basil ice cream is ideal for people who have dietary restrictions. Created by Julie at the Free People blog, the vegan ice cream recipe is coconut and banana based and features the unusual but seasonally appropriate combination of fresh strawberries and basil.
Taking inspiration from "the confluence of seasons and the incessant tolling of ice cream jingles," the strawberry basil ice cream (or "n'ice cream") brings together spring strawberries with early summer basil. The treat can be enjoyed as a refreshing snack in hot weather, or when topped with granola and extra fruit, a sweet breakfast.
To try this recipe at home, you will jars or ice pop moulds as well as a food processor or blender and standing mixer.
