What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I mean, of all time?
There’s this ice cream shop that I used to go to in Cambridge that had the BEST coconut chocolate chip ice cream. It was creamy, dreamy, packed full of coconut flavor and big chunks of chocolate.
The only problem was: every time I got that ice cream, my mom would watch on longingly because she couldn’t have any, and then rattle around the kitchen, pretending to be occupied and totally disinterested.
A few summers back, I realized it was high time that I make a healthy version of that ice cream and satisfy my mom’s everlasting love of coconut & chocolate, in one fell swoop. The result? This coconut and chocolate-packed healthy vegan ice cream recipe!

- *You can use canned coconut cream, or do the following: Allow a can of full-fat coconut milk to settle for 1-3 days—set it in a stable, cool environment. Open the can and scoop the firm, creamy white part off the top—this is the coconut cream. The translucent liquid is coconut juice.
- **For delicate chocolate flakes: add chocolate chips to a small, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 15-second increments until melted. Stir in between increments, until smooth. Scrape melted chocolate into the blender. Pulse a few times to combine. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
- Storing Instructions: Keep in the freezer-friendly container, in the freezer for 3-5 days. Best on the first day, still good in the first 3 days. Okay through Day 5.
