What to Serve with Oat Milk Ice Cream?

Time for The Tips!

  1. Pick the Perfect Oat Milk: Go for oat milk brands that keep it simple – no added flavors, sweeteners, or thickeners. Keep it pure for the best taste.
  2. Creaminess Boost: Oat milk is great, but if you want that extra creamy texture, toss in some cashews. When they get blended up, they turn into creamy magic!
  3. Sweetness Control: We sweetened our ice cream with maple syrup, but the sweetness level is totally up to you. Give it a taste before you start churning and add more maple syrup if you’re craving extra sweetness.
  4. Chill Out: Make sure your ice cream mixture gets a good chill session in the fridge before you churn it. This step is crucial for achieving that silky smooth texture we all love.
  5. Soften Up: Once your ice cream is ready to roll, let it hang out at room temperature for a few minutes before you start scooping. This helps it soften up just right for that perfect scoop every time.

Possible Flavor Variations!

Let’s jazz up this ice cream with some awesome flavor twists! Get ready to shake things up and add a whole new level of deliciousness to your frozen desserts game:

  1. Mocha Madness: Swap out half of the oat milk for some chilled brewed coffee. Boom! You’ve got yourself a mocha-flavored dream.
  2. Choco Overload: Craving some chocolatey goodness? Toss in 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder into the mix and watch the magic happen.
  3. Berry Blast: Take your taste buds on a fruity adventure by folding in 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries. It’s like a sweet summer breeze in every bite.
  4. Caramel Sensation: Feeling fancy? Add a touch of homemade caramel (about 1/4 cup) and a pinch of salt. Sweet, salty, and oh-so-satisfying!
  5. Minty Fresh: Want to cool things down? Throw in 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract and fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. It’s like a chilly breeze on a hot summer day.

Want to Store It for The Future?

  1. Storage:
    • Transfer any leftover ice cream into an airtight freezer-friendly container.
    • Make sure the container is sealed tightly to prevent freezer burn and maintain freshness.
  2. Freezer Placement:
    • Place the container in the coldest part of your freezer to keep the oat milk ice cream solid and creamy.
  3. Thawing Before Serving:
    • When you’re ready to enjoy the leftover vegan ice cream, take it out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. This helps soften the ice cream for easier scooping.
  4. Avoid Repeated Thawing and Freezing:
    • Try to avoid repeatedly thawing and refreezing the oat milk ice cream as it can affect its texture and quality. Instead, plan to consume it within a few days for the best taste and consistency.
  5. Serving Suggestions:
    • Enhance your vegan ice cream experience by topping it with fresh fruits, nuts, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
    • You can also use leftover ice cream as a filling for ice cream sandwiches or as a topping for desserts like brownies or pancakes.

What if I Don’t Have an Ice Cream Maker?

If you don’t have an ice cream machine, you can still make vanilla oat milk ice cream using either of these two methods, depending on what tools you have like an ice cream maker, blender or ice cube tray.

No-Churn Method:

  1. Blend your ice cream mixture.
  2. Pour it into a shallow, freezer-safe container.
  3. Freeze until the edges start to freeze, about 45 minutes.
  4. Stir vigorously, then return to the freezer.
  5. Repeat every 30 to 45 minutes until it reaches your preferred consistency, typically 5 to 6 hours for soft-serve texture.

Alternative Method:

  1. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze.
  2. Transfer the frozen cubes to a food processor and blend until creamy.

I highly recommend using an ice cream machine if you have one. It’s fascinating to see the machine turn this healthy oat blend into creamy milk ice cream in just minutes. Plus, sneaking a taste straight from the machine is pure joy.
