This yummy and decadent ice cream tastes just like traditional ice cream. It’s very easy to make and you don’t need an ice cream maker! It only takes 20 minutes to make but you will need to freeze it at least 4-6 hours!
- In a saucepan combine and place over medium heat: coconut milk (full fat - not coconut drink), sweetener of choice, cocoa powder and salt. Using either an immersion blender or a whisk mix until fully blended.
- Add the xanthan gum a sprinkle at a time and continue to blend until it is fully incorporated and there are no lumps. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely.
- Pour the whipping cream into a cold mixing bowl and whip until soft peaks have formed. Add in the vanilla extract and the chocolate mixture (make sure it has cooled completely). If you want darker chocolate, add the extra cocoa. If you are using (optional) alcohol, blend this in too. Your mix should be pourable, if it is too thick add some extra coconut milk a little at a time.
- Pour the mix into a container that has a lid that seals tightly. Put it into the freezer until it is frozen. If you freeze more than 6 hours you will need to let the ice cream soften for 10 minutes or so before scooping.
