dairy-free coconut chocolate chip ice cream recipe

This Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is the perfect refreshment for a hot summer day.  Since every child in the neighborhood seems to be at my house at present, bouncing on our trampoline, it is going to make the perfect afternoon snack in a few short minutes.

It’s fun (and super easy) to make dairy free ice cream from coconut milk.  Low in sugar, and high in protein and good fat, I feel great about feeding it to the gang.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

  1. Place coconut milk, eggs, coconut sugar, vanilla, and salt in a vitamix
  2. Blend thoroughly until smooth and well combined
  3. Briefly blend in chocolate chips, so that they are smaller pieces
  4. Process according to the directions of your ice cream maker
  5. Serve –garnish with unsweetened shredded coconut if desired

You may notice there are raw eggs in this recipe.  If that does not work for you, feel free to come up with your own fix for it.  Given that I test every recipe numerous times before I post it here, it’s just not possible for me to test your substitution questions.  And unfortunately, the only way to get the answer to those types of questions is to do an actual experiment –if you do try substitutions, please be sure to stop back by and leave a comment letting us all know if it worked!
