Ingredients

  • 1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • cups sugar
  • 2 cans (13.5 oz each) full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

  • Chill 2 cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, preferrably overnight
  • Empty the contents of other 1 cans of coconut milk into a saucepan. Add the sugar and bring to a simmer, stir once and gently simmer for 30 minutes, or until the milk is thick and has reduced by half (After about 10 minutes, you'll notice that the milk will start to turn a golden color – that's ok and is exactly what's supposed to happen.) Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  • Open the 2 cans of chilled coconut milk. The cream should have risen to the top. Carefully scoop the cream into a mixing bowl. (Reserve the water below to use in a smoothie.) With an electric beater, whip up the coconut cream on high speed until it's light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the condensed coconut milk and whip on high speed for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a lidded container and freeze for 4 hours or overnight. This ice cream does freeze harder than my other so just give it a few minutes at room temperature to make it easier to scoop.

I made your condensed milk recipe with hazelnut milk so it came out pretty dark brown & hazelnutty , no good for the lemon dessert I had planned for it! Banoffee/hazelnut pie perhaps or some salted caramel icecream concoction….

I tried this recipe, but because the cocounut cream was cold, it just would not whip with my mixer. I did the best I could and then I added the evaporated coconut milk recipe and it just curdled completely. The evaporated coconut was not really cold. Could that be the problem? In that case, it’s best the make the evaporated coconut recipe the night before. Also, I don’t like the ice cream so sweet so I put honey, but only half the quantity. So, I suppose this is not good for the recipe. But, the worst is that it just… Read more »

I have been making Avocado Ice Cream with Coconut Cream for years. Always a favourite when the family is at home.
Even my adopted Grandkids love the taste. I add lemon juice and confection sugar to the mix, comes out tingly to
the taste.
Maybe you may come up with a better recipe, but here in the tropics of Australia, we can try a lot of different tropical fruits in both drinks, shakes and ice cream.

Hi Gemma, Thanks for the great recipe. Instead of the Condensed Coconut milk , can I just use the sweetened Condensed Milk from the shelf? And omit the sugar?
And the whipped Coconut Cream together?
So just the two ingredients, Whipped Coconut Cream and Condensed Milk. Well chilled?
Thank you.

I have several food allergies and finding an ice cream recipe that I can eat has been a challenge. I am unable to eat dairy, coconut, or any nut/soy milks. I have found a non-dairy, plant-based milk that I can use by Bolthouse Farms. Do you have any suggestions? I would really appreciate any suggestions you can give me. Thanks so much!:)

Most of the time I really love your versions of recipes that meet my dairy free, gluten free needs. I was so hoping for an ice cream recipe using substitutes other than the coconut milk variety – I am soooo tired of coconut everything., I have grown to really dislike the flavor of coconut. Trying to develop alternatives like home made soy milk, almond and cashew milk. Guess I will be on my own for this

Hi Gemma, i am one of your fans. I really love all your recipe because most of them used natural ingredients. I want to try this one, but i want to make this from fresh coconut fruit. Can you tell me, how many grams or oz of coconut cream in 1 can coconut milk in this recipe? So i can use fresh coconut fruit for make this ice cream. Thank you so much
