Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream

This post contains affiliate links including Amazon affiliate links.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream is rich and indulgent in flavor. It’s made with coconut cream,  chocolate chips, and palm shortening to help make it so creamy. It’s scoopable verses those really hard homemade ice cream recipes and it’s not made with bananas!

This recipe is from my digital cookbook, The Grain-Free Snacker.  Use coupon code SNACKER to get 25% off the regular price (click here for the paleo snack cookbook). 

This chocolate ice cream is rich, decadent and uses coconut cream instead of dairy. It’s easy to whip up.

I hope you love it as much as I do. I have a secret weapon to help cover up the coconut taste, but I’ll share it with you… it’s raw apple cider vinegar.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Author: Carol Lovett

Yield: 1 pint

 

Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream Ingredients

1 cup coconut cream (see note)

2/3 cup dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips or use sugar-free chocolate chips to make keto-friendly

2/3 cup palm shortening

1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

How to Make Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream

  1. Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and turn the heat to medium.
  2. Continuously whisk until the chocolate chips melt and the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Turn on your ice cream machine and pour in the ingredients.
  4. When the ice cream is finished churning (it will resemble ice cream at this point), scoop it into a container and store it in the freezer, or consume immediately.

 

Note: To make coconut cream, place a can of coconut milk in your fridge. The next day, scoop out the cream that has risen to the top, and you have coconut cream.

Note: I have always found this ice cream to be scoopable right out of the freezer but if you find it is too hard allow about 10 minutes for it to thaw before scooping it out.

Equipment note: This recipe uses an ice cream maker. Follow your ice cream maker’s directions and place your ice cream container in the freezer 24 hours beforehand.

What brand of coconut milk should I use?

You can use any brand of coconut milk to make dairy-free ice cream as long as it is full fat. I prefer the Aroy-D Full Fat Coconut Milk.

Can I use a different milk alternative?

I use full fat coconut milk because it’s creamy enough to make amazing ice cream. You cannot use other milk alternatives because they are not high fat enough. You could use soaked and blended cashews instead of coconut milk.

How can I make this recipe sugar-free?

You can easily make this ice cream sugar free by using erythritol instead of sugar. But you must use a sugar replacement that is measured cup for cup. Stevia does not work as a sugar replacement in this recipe.
