Have you been enjoying watermelon this summer? We love this sweet, pink & juicy fruit. What could be happier than something naturally preppy pink & green that you can actually eat?

How about watermelon used in a delicious, good for you ice cream!

A few more things before we get started ~ this is vegan (dairy free) + sugar free too. Your bikini will love you…

Right before we left for our mountain getaway I gave my California ice cream maker a few great workouts. We enjoyed lots of Vegan Chocolate + Cherry Ice Cream and then I made this one.

We love all kinds of ice cream and enjoy plenty traditional cream filled versions too.

Lately though we crave ice cream made with thick and creamy full fat coconut milk.

As long as you like the flavor of coconut then you gotta try ice cream made with it. You also need to try coconut whipped cream

A few mini chocolate chips make this extra fun too. They look like little watermelon seeds don’t you think? But much tastier of course!

I also have a recipe forΒ Watermelon Frozen Yogurt Popsicles, just so you know. Those are great too ~ especially if you have one of those GIANT watermelons and you need more to do with it.

I think this would make the perfect poolside snack to share with your sweetie….

  1. I really need to invest in an ice cream maker. I’ve been making all of my frozen yogurt/ice cream by hand in a bowl, but it seems like I could make so many more flavors quicker with an ice cream maker. Loving this flavor combination!

  2. Wow, I love the delicate color! Coconut ice cream is my favorite – I’m actually going to go make some vanilla coconut milk ice cream today πŸ™‚ Love the watermelon in yours. What’s more refreshing than than watermelon? Especially in ice cream! Awesome! Thanks for the link love πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Marla, Your ice cream looks amazing! Quick question, when you use the full fat coconut milk, does the ice cream get rock hard in the freezer? I’ve been playing around with healthy ice cream recipes and no matter what I make it once it freezes it turns out hard as a rock and takes for ever to soften up.

    1. Jennifer, great question! It certainly does not stay as soft as traditional ice cream. All that fat, air and sugar keeps the traditional stuff softer. My suggestion is to lay some wax paper or parchment over your coconut ice cream and store it in an airtight container. Take it out of the freezer quite a bit before you are going to serve it so it softens up. Hope it works out for you πŸ™‚

  4. I love how healthy you are and how you can show people like me how easy it is to indulge without indulging tooooooo much. Thanks for the great recipe and amazing photo inspirations!

  5. You think of everything! So creative and fun. I love using watermelon in recipes but this looks amazing. I’ve never heard of nor tried watermelon ice cream but I bet this is delish.
    Hope all is well, Marla. Miss you and love ya.

  6. I just received an article I have to make and shoot this week that involves watermelon! This is such a refreshing flavor for ice cream, yum. And oh gosh, I love coconut! I could eat that whipped cream with a big bowl of chocolate ice cream. [:

  7. I made this and it turned out really funky tasting πŸ™ I’m wondering if it was maybe from the stevia? I like stevia but haven’t used it TOO much. I don’t have the drops, I have the pure powder. I used about 1/16 teaspoon. Do you ever use the powder?
