Delicious vegan ice cream using coconut milk. Altered from a recipe on http://veganicecream.blogspot.com/ A bit of a time commitment if you don't have an ice cream maker (like me) but so much cheaper than store bought vegan ice cream!
- 2 (15 ounce) cans coconut milk
- 1 cup strong coffee
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (optional)
- Mix the coconut milk, coffee, sugar and vanilla in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for a few minutes and then let cool.
- If you have an ice cream machine, follow your models instructions. If not, put in metal or glass bowl and put in freezer. Every 45 minutes or so, take and mix with a hand mixer. Process will take about 3 hours, mix in chocolate chips (I chopped mine up) in last hour.
This recipe is awesome! It works out wonderfully, is so easy to make and tastes mmmm moreish! Sooo good! The coconut milk goes great with the vanilla and coffee and the addition of dark choc chips is divine. YUM! I used the mixer method as my ice-cream maker wasnt ready to use and it worked out well. The ice-cream came out a bit grainy, but thats ok, it still tasted fab on pancakes.
Oh and I did reduce the sugar to about 1/4 cup and thought that was plenty for us.
Ill surely make this again trying out other flavour combinations, too. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this treat with us, Rae! Made and reviewed during Pick A Chef October 2011 ~ Youve been adopted! :)
Since becoming vegan I've been trying to recreate Blue Bell's Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream. Using this incredible coffee ice cream recipe I am now so close. I added chopped almonds at the end of the churning and layered fudge in between the ice cream. Need to improve my fudge but the ice cream was spot on! Thanks for a great (easy) recipe!
