For the ice cream base:
For the strawberry swirl:
Prepare Strawberry Swirl: In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries, agave syrup or maple syrup, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth, leaving some small chunks for texture. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside.
Prepare Ice Cream Base: Open the chilled cans of coconut milk and scoop out the thick coconut cream from the top of the cans. Place the cream in a mixing bowl, leaving behind any watery liquid.
Mix Ice Cream Base: Using a hand mixer or a whisk, beat the coconut cream until smooth and creamy. Add the agave syrup (or maple syrup) and vanilla extract. Mix again until well combined.
Layer in Container: In a freezer-safe container, spoon a layer of the coconut ice cream, followed by drizzles of the strawberry sauce. Repeat this layering process until all the ice cream and strawberry sauce are used.
Swirl and Freeze: Use a knife or a skewer to gently swirl the strawberry sauce into the coconut ice cream for a marbled effect.
Final Freeze: Cover the container with a lid or plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for about 4-6 hours, or until the ice cream is firm.
Hand-Mix Every Hour: During the initial freezing process, remove the container from the freezer every hour for the first 3-4 hours. Use a fork or whisk to vigorously mix and break up any ice crystals that form, ensuring a smoother texture.
Serve: Allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping. Garnish with fresh strawberries if desired. Indulge in the velvety goodness of your very own Coconut Strawberry Swirl Non-Dairy Ice Cream creation!
