Coconut Chocolate Chip Vegan Ice Cream Recipe – Homemade!
This amazing vegan ice cream recipe is deliciously rich ‘n creamy! The best homemade vegan ice cream—packed with coconut & chocolate chips, no churn.
What’s your favorite vegan 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. Alas, all she wanted was a scoop of that delicious ice cream.
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? Today’s delicious homemade vegan ice cream recipe!

Here is the food processor I use to make this ice cream!
*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.

Perfect delight! You’ve saved me a lot of money by not needing to buy coconut milk ice cream at the store!
Since only 3 Tbsp of coconut cream are removed from a whole can of just coconut cream (not coconut milk with only cream on top), will it work to scoop out the the remainder in the can & freeze it for later use in making more ice cream?
Yay! So happy you enjoyed the ice cream, and even happier to hear about the savings!
I haven’t tried it myself, but any leftover coconut cream should be fine to freeze. Just be careful how you freeze it so that it’s easy to use when the time comes.
