Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Here's a delicious treat for your weekend! This is a recipe that I posted a long while back, but it is buried in a post with another recipe. And since it is quick and fairly healthy, I decided to re-post. Plus, it's summer, so who doesn't love some ice cream?!

I should note that the original recipe is  not mine; however, I do not remember where I found it. This time around I did add a 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract, which was a nice twist.

2-14 oz cans full-fat coconut milk
2/3 c. sugar or agave nectar (I used coconut sugar)
1/4 c.  unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2  tsp vanilla extract (feel free to replace 1/2 tsp of vanilla with 1/2 tsp almond extract)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Pour into the bowl of an ice cream freezer and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. Serves 4.

  1. I don't have an ice cream freezer :( Maybe I can simulate it though. I wonder if you could make other flavors, too? Substituting fruit puree for the cococa, etc.

    Ice cream freezers can be fairly inexpensive; however, there are ways to make ice cream without one. I would google that and see what you come up with. I have also considered making this into popsicles, though have not tried it yet. You can make other flavors, I just love the combination of chocolate and coconut.
    I hope you are able to enjoy this recipe!
