Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

Yields:  6 servings

INGREDIENTS

14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk (refrigerate before using)

14-ounce can light coconut milk

½ cup honey

⅔ cup cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch kosher salt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cans coconut milk and ½ cup honey. Whisk in ⅓ cup cocoa powder until it is fully integrated, then mix in the remaining ⅓ cup. Add ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of kosher salt.
  2. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker (it helps if the mixture is cold before freezing; we keep cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator so they are already cold). Or, make it without the machine (see directions below). Enjoy he ice cream right away for a soft serve texture, or freeze it for about 2 hours for a harder texture.

 

Making Ice Cream Without A Machine

  1. Prepare your ice cream mixture, then chill it over an ice bath.
  2. Put a deep baking dish, or bowl made of plastic, stainless steel or something durable in the freezer, and pour your custard mixture into it.
  3. After forty-five minutes, open the door and check it.

As it starts to freeze near the edges, remove it from the freezer and stir it vigorously with a spatula or whisk. Really beat it up and break up any frozen sections. Return to freezer.

  1. Continue to check the mixture every 30 minutes, stirring vigorously as it’s freezing. If you have one, you can use a hand-held mixer for best results, or use a stick-blender or hand-held mixer.

But since we’re going low-tech here, you can also use just a spatula or a sturdy whisk along with some modest physical effort.

  1. Keep checking periodically and stirring while it freezes (by hand or with the electric mixer) until the ice cream is frozen. It will likely take 2-3 hours to be ready.

Transfer the ice cream to a covered storage container until ready to serve.
