    I can’t get enough chocolate!! Your ice cream looks so delicious. I actually just ate a bowl and I added some mini chocolate chips and coconut. It was really good. :) Thank you for linking up with Tasty Tuesdays yesterday. I’m one of Anyonita’s co-hosts for the month and was just checking out your blog.

      Lol… Well Cindy, there is coconut milk in it and cocoa. Cocoa is from a bean right? So you can say you are having milk and beans for breakfast 😀

    Thank you for such a delicious looking ice cream recipe! Thanks to coconut milk I am finally able to eat ice cream again after well over 20 years. And thanks for letting people know they can still make this even if they don’t own an ice cream maker (which I now own thanks to a gift card from my daughter)

        I am in the process of making this for my hubby. When I opened up the can, it was all liquid and no coconut cream. I am not sure if it will work this way or not. Also, the ” ice cream” has been in the freezer for over an hour and it is still liquid. HELP!

          Did you put your coconut milk in the fridge overnight before making it? What fat content did you use?

    is can coconut milk different than what comes in the carton?

      If you don’t mind diet ice cream then the carton will work, but for a rich creamy flavour you want the higher fat canned coconut milk :)

    This is extremely good!!!! Who knew coconut milk acted as a sweetener!!!! Thanks for sharing!!! And I love the fact that its so easy! Every paleo recipe I find has ingredients I’ve never heard of!
