I told myself that this would be my last ice cream recipe for the summer. Made a mental promise to lớn not post any more frozen scoop-able things. That lasted all of three days. Because then a lovely reader with very good ice cream tastes requested a purple sweet potato ice cream.And if you didn’t know this about me, purple food is sorta my can’t-resist weakness.

So here we are again –cone in hand, sweet stuff fast-melting, no churn recipe coming atcha!

I started this summer with mostly nice cream recipes plus one classically churned ice cream. But as the delicious season has carried along, I’ve come lớn love no-churn butbanana-free ice creams best of all. Kinda lượt thích a combination of the two but no fancy machine necessary.

Plus there are so many different ways to go about making the blender base: nut butter, coconut, avocado, and this recipe is adding a low-fat option to lớn that creamy dreamy list.

Because sweet potatoes are thick, sweet, blend-able, và (possibly) purple. Actually any kind/color of sweet potato will work here, although I vì chưng think the purple ones are especially sweet and tasty. Plus I have a sneaky-smart blender trick I stole from nice cream lớn turn banana-free ice creams into silky soft-serve consistency too.

With all of my no-churn ice cream recipes so far, adding a higher fat ingredient keeps the texture creamy even after freezing overnight. Even if it seems solid, ten or so minutes at room temp will soften it to scoop-able. But since this sweet potato version is made with from-a-carton almond milk & I skipped the dates for màu sắc purposes, thawing won’t magically make it creamy. But a high tốc độ blender will!

If you freeze the ice cream base in a pan và then break it into chunks the next day (or even use an ice cube tray for automatic chunks!), you can pop those chunks back in the blender & blend to lớn luscious ice cream bliss. Or a food processor will work too, although it will take a bit longer and more stops along the way. After blending the texture will be very similar khổng lồ nice cream, so eat it as is or refreeze for about 30 minutes then scoop.

If all of that blending sounds lượt thích too much work to you, use full-fat coconut milk khổng lồ start with & the second blend won’t be necessary. But we are talking about dazzling purpledelicious dessert-nesshere, so it’s worth the double blend effort if you ask me.

Obviously. I baked and mashed about five teeny tiny purple sweet potatoes. But if you have average-sized sweets, one or two will be enough. The microwave or oven works here, that’s up lớn you. As I mentioned, any color sweet potato will be fine here – orange, white…okay those are really the only other options. But lưu ý that the purple ones are very sweet, so if you use a regular orange one you may want to lớn up the sweetening amount a little bit.

Maple syrup. I opted for maple syrup as the sweetener because dates would’ve marred the magical màu sắc and maple syrup is my next favorite khung of sugar after Medjools. A quarter cup was plenty with these very sweet potatoes, but taste & adjust as needed. Or perhaps even skip it if the natural potato sweetness is enough for you.

Almond milk. Any kind of non-dairy milk is fine, I just happened khổng lồ have almond in my fridge at the time. Cashew would be great, coconut from a can or carton would be extra rich, & homemade would be delicious! You want khổng lồ use equal parts mashed sweet potato to lớn non-dairy milk, so for me that was 2 cups of each. But you can multiply lớn make a bigger batch too.

Vanilla + sea salt. Optional, but both amp up the flavor. So I suggest a dash and a sprinkle.
