Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Sometimes, I just want a bowl of ice cream. I found myself patrolling the ice cream aisle at the grocery store this weekend, looking at ingredients and nutrition facts… I walked out without buying anything and decided to make my own.

Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2-4 tablespoons honey (I used 2 tbsp because I’m strongly weaned off of sugar… me 4 months ago would probably use 4 tablespoons)
  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk for the creamiest ice cream (you can get away with 1 regular, 1 lite)
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • Toppings pictured: cacao nibs and frozen berries


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together yolks and honey
  • Whisk in the coconut milk and arrowroot starch
  • Transfer to a medium pot and heat (while stirring) until the mixture breaks a boil
  • Then transfer back to the large mixing bowl
  • Add vanilla extract and cocoa powder and mix well
  • Cool the mixture completely in the fridge (it will be a yummy chocolate custard at this stage. I could definitely just eat it at this point)
  • Proceed to make ice cream according to your ice cream maker’s instructions
  • Add toppings and dig in!

Why, yes, I did take these pictures on the railing of my balcony…and the ice cream could have fallen on my neighbors’ head. ;)

    Wow, this looks delicious! I will have to try with egg replacers. It looks so creamy!

    Can this be kept in the freezer or do you need to eat it straight away?

    • Tash

      I would eat straight away. It will get harder in the freezer and harder to scoop out… but still tasty if you let it sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes before scooping.

    I love this recipe but need to stay away from chocolate. Is there a way to modify it to a berry ice cream or another flavor?
