Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream


First post in over 1 1/2 years! I'm on a roll. 

So the other day my kids were complaining that we didn't have any ice cream. Most of the time we don't have ice cream in the house, but it's been really hot the last few weeks and they want (need?) ice cream. So I got out my ice cream maker for the first time in a very long time, and threw together some ice cream. I made this up as I went along and it turned out really yummy. More of a dark chocolate and was very creamy and smooth. Super simple and quick too.

1 1/2 cups heavy cream (cold)
3/4 cup regular coconut milk (not lite - cold)
3/4 cup organic whole cane sugar (I use Rapadura brand)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients together with an immersion blender or in a regular blender. You could use a food processor as well. Pour into your ice cream maker and process until it's a soft-serve consistency. Mine took 20 minutes. Put the ice cream into a freezer-proof container and chill in the freezer for two hours to firm up. 

Enjoy!
