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!

  1. Add bananas to a food processor. Here is the food processor I use. Blend until crumbly.
  2. Add coconut cream, maple syrup and vanilla, blending until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
  3. Add coconut & chocolate**, blending until just incorporated (2-4 pulses).
  4. If you like super soft, melty ice cream, enjoy immediately. If you want your ice cream firm and scoopable: pour into a freezer-friendly, airtight container. Freeze for 3-6 hours, or until completely frozen. Allow to thaw for 5-15 minutes before scooping. Enjoy!

Notes

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.

  1. These ingredients all sound so healthy and delicious. This would definitely be nicer on my tummy than normal ice cream.

  2. You got me at coconut love that flavor and then combined with chocolate is the best, perfect dessert for the summer!

  3. I LOVE nice cream and the addition of the coconut and chocolate chips sounds divine… How sweet that you made this for your Mom 🙂

  4. GeT recipe! My Mom is lactose intolerant so I know the guilt of eating ice cream around her. She loved this coconut milk version though. Thanks for poating!

  5. Thanks for the tip on using cauliflower instead of bananas ..that’s brilliant and will make this chocolate coconut vegan ice cream an even bigger hit in our house!

  6. Ok I made this today! Taste good already before I even put it in the freezer. My daughter-in-law has an ice cream social tomorrow and my granddaughter and her husband are in from Germany. They are both vegan, so made this plus two more vegan recipes. Don’t know if they are your, but peanut butter swirl, and strawberry Sobae, my daughter-in-law makes the rest one that a old recipe from my mother-in-law vanilla without eggs. Can’t wait for them to try mine.

    1. Wonderful! I just love having a taste before it’s even frozen. Hehe. 😉 Yep, those other recipes are mine too! I hope the ice cream social was a huge success! Enjoy. ❤️
