How to Make Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

What You'll Need:

                How to Make:

                1. Crack open your coconut. Separate the coconut meat from the shell and break into small pieces.
                2. Place all ingredients in your blender.
                3. Blend until smooth.
                4. Freeze into ice cubes, but reserve about 1/3 cup chocolate coconut milk in liquid form.
                5. Place ice cubes back in the blender and add your reserved liquid.
                6. Blend until smooth. Be very gentle with your blender and stop to scrape down the sides any time the blender stops working (stops actually blending anything). Be patient and let your ice cubes thaw for 5-10 minutes if you’re not having any luck blending.
                7. Once smooth, top with toasted coconut or any topping(s) you like!

                Happy scooping!
