This ice cream is not too sweet, while it's rich in chocolate & coconut flavour. It's been awhile since I made this ice cream and this time around I've filmed it. Head over to Nadia's Kitchen Creations to watch me make it.

4 cups/1 quart/32 fl oz

Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream Recipe w/ video

Ingredients

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup cane** or palm sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup half & half or regular milk or non-dairy substitute (you can double the half & half or milk)
  • 1 can evaporated milk or regular milk or non-dairy substitute
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or 1/4 of a scraped vanilla bean pod
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded OR chips***

Instructions

  1. Add first 6 ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously with a whisk for 5 minutes.
  2. Add sifted cocoa powder to mix, continuing to whisk. Keep whisking for another 5 minutes. Take off heat.
  3. Using a fine strainer, strain into a heat proof bowl. Add extracts and coconut. Stir, until evenly mixed. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap. Making sure it touches the surface of the custard, to prevent a skin from forming. I didn't have a skin form because I used a non-dairy substitute this time around. If you use full fat milk, whipping cream etc, a skin will form.
  4. Can be left in fridge for 2 days.
  5. Follow the directions on your ice cream maker and enjoy!

Notes

*To lower calories & fat: Use the half fat or fat free versions of the half & half, coconut milk and evaporated milk. Changing the fat content will change the texture of the finished product. Fat = smooth & creamy.

**Cane sugar was used in the recipe that I made.
