Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

I think you’ll love my easy vegan chocolate ice cream recipe! I’ve made this ice cream a handful of times and it never stays around for long. It also stays scoopable in the freezer!


  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips/chunks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp. salt


Blend all but the chocolate chips in a blender until smooth. Place the chocolate chips into a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of hot water on the stove.

Pour the liquid over the top and allow the mixture to heat up, melting the chocolate. Whisk every few minutes. Do not boil; just heat to melt the chocolate. Pour the liquid into a large bowl and place in the fridge until well chilled, at least 8 hours.

Process through an ice-cream maker (it’ll be like soft serve at this point), and then transfer it into a container and place into the freezer for at least 4 hours to firm up a bit more.

I drizzled chocolate sauce, freeze-dried raspberries, and sliced almonds on top. It was absolutely delicious!

Gives 3–4 servings.
