No Churn Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream with Granola Chunks

Cashew-Base | Dairy-Free | Dessert | Gluten-free | Recipe | Vegan | Vegetarian | 

This recipe is inspired by our friend and food blogger Liv Vegan Strong. We tried her No Churn Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream and instantly fell in love. So, we put our own little spin on it and swapped cookies with a whole grain granola bar! 

No Churn Vegan Strawberry and Granola Ice Cream Recipe Made With JOI

We partnered with our friends at BeBOLD Bars to create a new Summer favorite. This No-Churn Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream with Granola Chunks requires a blender, a freezer-safe container, and patience. It’s as simple as blending the base ingredients together, making a simple strawberry jam, and breaking up some granola bars.

Once we mix and swirl these ingredients together, we'll add a dash of patience as we wait for it to freeze to a perfect consistency and texture.  And trust us, waiting is definitely the hardest part.


Ice Cream

  • 1 can Coconut Cream 
  • 1/3 cup JOI Cashew Base
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 cups Strawberries, diced
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Cane Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1-2 BeBOLD (or other) granola bars (Peanut or Almond Butter - your choice!)


Ice Cream Base:

  1. Refrigerate the can of coconut cream overnight. Open the can of coconut cream, scoop out only the solid white parts. Discard the liquid (save it for a future smoothie). 1 can should measure to about 1 cup of solid coconut cream.
  2. Melt the solid coconut cream in a pan on low heat. Once melted, remove from heat.
  3. Add the melted coconut cream, JOI Cashew Base, water, sugar, vanilla, and salt to a blender. Blend for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour ice cream base in to a freezer safe container, do not cover. Place in freezer for 2 hours before adding the rest of ingredients.

Jam & Bars:

  1. While the ice cream base is freezing, dice strawberries and add to a small pot on medium heat. Add the sugar and pinch of salt. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring often. Turn off heat and place in fridge to cool. The jam will continue to thicken when cooling.
  2. Break the BeBOLD Bars (or granola bars of choice) into bite-size pieces. You want them to be fairly large chunks and not crumbs.

    Finish it up:

    After 2 hours, remove ice cream base from freezer. Carefully swirl in all the jam and the granola chunks. Cover the ice cream and return to the freezer for a minimum of 6 hours.

    Serve your ice cream in a cone, in a cup, or straight from the container. Enjoy!!

    The Skinny Truth About Fats

    With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the three musketeers of nutrition and must stay together through all your meals, not one can be excluded from the dinner party... (we're looking at you, keto diet).
