Flavor Variations

  • 4 tbsp cold coffee (or less) (to overpower any coconut flavor and turn it into mocha chocolate - add 1 tbsp at a time and stir the mixture. Stop if the texture is becoming too watery)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (to overpower any coconut flavor and turn it into Mayan Chocolate - you should taste-test and add more if you'd like)
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie - mix in chunks of vegan chocolate chip cookie dough (my vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recipe here.)

Useful Equipment


Make Ice Cream

  1. Don't chill the can of coconut milk overnight or it will separate into liquids and solids. Keep it at room temperature and shake hard before blending.

  2. Blend up all ingredients until smooth. If you intend to add coffee, do it now.

  3. Spoon mixture into ice cube trays, and freeze for at least 1 hour.

    Blend the cubes again and pour into a parchment-lined loaf pan. If you intend to add mix-ins, such as chips or cookie dough chunks, do it now.

    Cover and freeze another 3-4 hours or until you reach the texture you want.

  4. Once frozen overnight, let thaw 20 minutes before scooping.

  5. Top with homemade chocolate sauce or a melted chocolate bar! Enjoy!
