Ok, ok, so this is not technically ice-cream. The texture is a little bit different, but in my opinion, if you don’t have an ice cream-maker and want a creamy cool treat, this chocolate coffee dairy-free coffee ice cream is the best way to go. It’s so easy too!
Chocolate Coffee Dairy-Free Ice Cream:
16 oz. full fat coconut milk (This is the kind I used. It’s bpa free and has no additives)
2 tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 tbsp finely ground coffee
3 tbsp cacao powder (I use raw cacao instead of cocoa for the health benefits. You can use either)
1. Combine ingredients in a wide mouth jar or a large bowl. Make sure you use full-fat coconut milk like this or this. If you use light coconut milk or watered down coconut milk that comes in soy-milk style boxes it won’t solidify properly. Mix with a hand blender, hand mixer or blender/food processor (I used a hand blender because it’s so compact and easy to clean up). This step is important because you need something powerful to really mix everything together…just a regular whisk or a mixing spoon will not work.
2. Make sure you use fresh coffee grounds, not ones that you’ve already used (those won’t have any coffee flavor left in them!). If you just want chocolate flavor, leave out the coffee grounds and add in an extra 1-2 tbsp of cacao powder.
3. Once everything is thoroughly mixed, place the mixture in a jar and keep it in the fridge overnight. In the morning the mixture will be solid and ready to eat!
