Milk Rice Ice Cream | Vegan

Perfect dessert to make when you want a basic non-dairy but creamy and fresh ice cream and also something healthy and delicious.


  • 4 1/4 cup plantbased milk (1L)
  • 1/2 cup round rice (100g)
  • 3 lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp date paste (35 g hydrated dates and 3 tbsp water blended)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 can coconut milk


  1. Heat plantbased milk (we use unsweetened soy milk) with cinnamon stick and lemon zest. Add Date Paste, if you use sweetened plantbased milk skip this step.
  2. With the help of a wooden spoon, stir the milk well and press the date paste to the sides of the pan to incorporate it to the milk and help to dissolve it.
  3. When the milk begins to boil remove it from the heat and with the help of a strainer strain the milk carefully.
  4. Lower the heat and add the rice. Cook it for 20 minutes stirring rice every 2 minutes.
  5. Let it cool and then add coconut cream. It is very important not to shake the coconut can, we only need the cream from the top. Then blend all together util puree consistency.
  6. Freeze it for 1 hour, then blend it and freeze it again. Repeat this 2-3 times.
  7. Remove it from the freezer 20 min before serving it

  1. The recipe calls for plant based milk but says 1.25 cups or 1 liter. These are two very different amounts. Which is correct?

    1. Hello Todd,
      Sorry for the late response, I couldn’t read your comment.
      You are right, there is a mistake and thank you for commenting. The recipe calls for 1L (4.25 cups) of plantbased milk.
      I have already corrected it in the post.
      Best regards,
