This creamy, dreamy, basically mind-blowing ice cream is vegan. It only requires three ingredients (four if you insist on counting the salt) and no cooking. I wouldn’t believe it myself if I had been there for the failed recipes that finally led to this triumphant one.

Many vegan ice creams use coconut milk to add fat and flavor to non-dairy milks to achieve that creamy result.
