Chocolate Ice Cream

Creamy chocolate ice cream made dairy free and vegan by coconut milk!
Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8 to 10 servings


  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, I like to use Navitas
  • ½ cup Grade B maple syrup, if you're able, support a local farm and buy from them!
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips, Enjoy Life are DF, GF and V


  • In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup coconut milk with arrowroot powder. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the remaining coconut milk, cocoa powder and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Once it's brought to a boil, stir in the coconut milk/arrowroot powder mixture and stir until completely combined - the mixture should thicken a bit. Remove from heat.
  • Add vanilla and chocolate chips and stir until completely combined and chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour mixture into a heat-proof bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge to chill. You want the mixture to be chilled, so if you're able to leave it for a few hours or overnight, that's your best bet.
  • I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker and let it churn for 30 minutes. In the last five minutes, I added my chocolate chunks and a dash of salt. If you're making it plain, you don't need to add anything and just let it churn until it's good and... churned.
  • Pour batter into a freezer-safe container and freeze for a couple hours if you want it to be soft-serve texture (or overnight, if you want to eat it after it's hardened).
  • Scoop it into a bowl, plop it on top of a cone, sprinkle it with toppings or whipped cream and enjoy!
