There’s nothing like a scoop of cool homemade ice cream on a hot summer day. This Raspberry Ice Cream recipe is my latest favorite!

Creamy coconut ice cream filled with fresh raspberries is so easy to make, and so much fun to eat, you’re going to be making it all summer long.

There’s a lot I love about summertime but maybe my favorite is that it’s ice cream weather. Climbing temperatures give me just the excuse I need to make a serving (or two) of ice cream a daily habit–not that I need an excuse!

Another thing to love about this time of year? Fresh berries are everywhere! Any berries I can manage to keep my family from devouring as soon as I bring them home get stocked away for making all kinds of treats.

When I got my hands on a few pints of fresh raspberries last week, I knew just what I’d be doing with them.

The most popular question I get is whether it’s possible to make ice cream without a machine. The answer is YES. You can make ice cream without a machine. Find the full directions here!

I love desserts with fresh berries and this is no exception. The creaminess of the homemade ice cream pairs beautifully with the sweet and tart raspberry flavor. Creamy raspberry ice cream was a hit with the whole family.

If you’re like me and love berries and chocolate, you’re going to love this ice cream topped with Homemade Magic Shell or Chocolate Sauce. It’s also delicious enough to enjoy all on its own, in a bowl or on a cone.

I’ve made Raspberry Ice Cream several times now and each batch seems to disappear quicker than the last. For those who love raspberries, this is an ideal treat for cooling off on a hot summer day!

Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream is absolutely delicious and accidentally vegan too!

Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe is vegan with a simple swap from our classic Vanilla Ice Cream. Just trade coconut milk for the traditional heavy cream and you’ll have a frozen treat every bit as delicious as the original.

Be sure to use the Thai coconut milk that comes in a can rather than carton milk. I’ve made this recipe with canned coconut milk on several occasions and it works beautifully. Extra coconut milk is perfect for a Coconut Milk Banana Smoothie.

Using coconut milk in homemade ice cream recipes has served me well for years. If you’re looking for a vanilla version, try this Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream next! Don’t forget to add some warm Berry Sauce on top for the ultimate treat.

You’ll also love my Dark Chocolate Toffee Coconut Ice Cream and the tropical flavors in this Pineapple Smoothie Coconut Ice Cream.

The coconut milk adds coconut flavor to any ice cream recipe you use it in. It just so happens that in Raspberry Ice Cream, coconut flavor works wonders! I loved the flavor combo and, if you’re a coconut fan, I think you will too.

This Raspberry Ice Cream is accidental vegan and completely delicious!

Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream

Raspberry Ice Cream is the latest berry dessert to make me happy and it’s got me thinking about all the other berry dessert recipes I need to make soon, especially with all the fresh berries I’m spotting at the farmers markets and produce stands lately.

If I can resist using all my raspberries to make ice cream, I’ll be putting them to equally good use to make Baked Peaches and Raspberries with Lemon Curd again.

My family also loves Blackberry Coconut Crisp (with or without a ice cream on top) and these almost addictively good Chocolate Covered Blueberries.

If you can’t fit all these desserts into your summertime, never fear! You can use frozen berries to make Raspberry Ice Cream too! (This is the method I use for freezing fresh berries and many other fruits as well.)

I’ve made it with frozen fruit several times to great success. Just chop the frozen raspberries roughly before adding them to the ice cream maker and you’ll be good to go.

Put your ice cream maker to good use this summer with a batch or two of creamy Raspberry Ice Cream!

Creamy raspberry ice cream is a summer (and winter!) favorite for everyone.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 5 servings


  • 2 13-ounce cans of Thai coconut milk, 26-ounces total
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 ounce container of fresh raspberries (whole) or 2/3 cup frozen raspberries (roughly chopped)


  • Whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Add the raspberries when the ice cream has almost finished. (They will break up a bit as it finishes churning.)
  • Serve immediately for soft serve ice cream or transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer until ready to serve. Enjoy!


If you aren’t a fan of coconut milk or simply don’t have it on hand, you can substitute 1 ½ cups heavy cream and 1 ½ cups milk for the cans of coconut milk in the recipe. This recipe works nicely both ways.

    Hey Mary!!
    Is the cream from step 1 left out of the list if ingredients?
    Thank you for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it!

  2. Debi Heyn says

    Can I whip this all together and put in bread pans to freeze? Don’t have access to ice cream freezer right now.

    • Mary Younkin says

      This will freeze fine, but it will be solid and it won’t be scoopable like ice cream if it isn’t churned in a machine. You could freeze the mixture in popsicle molds though and it would make delicious popsicles, Debi.

    You are my favorite kind of cooking chef. I too have a sense of creativity in the kitchen and travel world. My husband calls me a culinary kitchen engineer.
    Love your recipes.5 stars

  4. Lisa Baker says

    I just tried to make this and it was an epic fail. The texture was like soup and the taste was not that great. I used the ingredients in the recipe and my bowl had been in the freezer for twenty four hours. 😔

  5. Kathy says

    What can I use to replace the coconut taste . I’m not a fan of coconut milk so will use cream. But love the taste of coconut. Any suggestions?

    • Mary Younkin says

      Yes, you can. However, canned coconut milk is pretty thick and works beautifully for ice cream. If you haven’t tried it that way already, I recommend making it as written first, Sarah.

    Hi mary,
    thanks for your raspberry ice cream recipe… looks delicious! how do you prevent the small bit of fat from the coconut milk from forming little hard lumps in the ice ream? it does not seem to mix together with the rest of the milk.

    • Mary Younkin says

      It’s honestly weird the way that happens sometimes and doesn’t happen other times. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to figure it out, Dawn.

  7. Megan says

    Hi Mary! Great recipe!! I love that it only has a few ingredients! However the coconut flavor was overpowering in mine….any recommendations for a delicious vegan substitute? Or how to balance out that coconut flavor?4 stars

    • Mary Younkin says

      Coconut milk ice creams definitely carry that strong coconut flavor through. You can try adding a bit of lemon juice to the mix. I’ve done that to brighten the flavors a bit in the past and it does neutralize the coconut a little bit. Just add a teaspoon or so at a time and taste as you go to find the perfect amount for your tastes. I’m glad you’re enjoying the ice cream!
